XBOX 360 Wireless Adapter Question

Hello,
I just bought an XBOX 360 wireless adapter. The condo that I live in provides internet throughout the building in which I pick up a wireless signal through a linksys router. I have done all test connections and everything works great and also when I'm in the Madden lobby to play someone my signal is full strength. I can't connect to any of my friends to play them in a game and also when I eventually play someone at random the screen doesn't lag, there is just a delay in the control when I move the joy stick and/or click on buttons. Please help, I'd hate for all of my equipment to be a waste of money if I can't do this.
Thanks,
MB

When i try to play halo3 with my friends i get the same problem. I cant connect to them and sometimes i also cant hear some people talk. Some problems might be that your NAT is set to STRICT or MODERATE you will want it to be open to play with your friends. I dont really have an answer but you will need to get in your apartments router to change the settings to get the NAT to become open. If you type in on the google search bar: Cant connect to friends on xbox live there will be some answers for this problem.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

How do i configure a wireless adapter for xbox live


To use the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter with Xbox Live, you must have a high-speed Internet connection (cable or DSL).


Your wireless networking adapter is designed to attach directly to the back of your Xbox 360™ console.

How to hookup wireless internet


To connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.
Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.
On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.
On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead. Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.

NEED AN I.P. ADRESS FOR XBOX 360


This is not recommended, better to have your own internet that way you get uninterrupted while playing instead having to rely on someone else. However, you could buy an extended antenna for your wireless network adapter to reach greater ranges and possibly, maybe, probably, but most not definitely might find someone with a open network. Everyone new is becoming more secure prone so your chances of getting a reliable connection and open connection are slime buddy.
