Im trying to set up x box live for net flix on my tv. how do i do that when the internet connection is in another room/ i can either have net flix or internet. i cant get them both to work


Yes, you can have both of them to work if you want to invest some money in purchasing a wireless internet router and a wireless adapter for your xbox360 an average cost for both would be around $120 at walmart or future shop, all you do is setup your wireless router and than setup the wireless adapter instructions are included and are all over the web after that you can enjoy netflix and xboxlive all in the same room wireless free

My son can't connect to x box live, it keeps asking for the wpa key, what is this and where do I get it from?


Your WPA key is simply put, the password that protects your internet. (Wi-Fi Protected Access). I'm assuming you have a wireless internet and that is how your son is connecting to Xbox Live? (Unless he is mistakenly connecting to another wireless network other than your own.)
Someone in your household should know what the WPA key is, because it was the password set to protect your internet. (Most likely done so on a PC or laptop.)
So here are my suggestions:
1. Make sure your son is connecting to the right wirless network on his Xbox. You can do this by going to Settings --> System Settings --> Network Settings --> Configure Network --> Clicking A once you get to that Menu, and then scanning for Networks. Chances are you will get a few results. In order to connect to Xbox Live, you have to chose your wireless network.
2. If no one in your household knows the WPA key, I would suggest contacting who ever set up your internet, or another option would be to connect to Xbox Live directly, using the modem cable. (You would have gotten this when you originally bought the Xbox.) This can get pretty complicated however, so I would suggest trying to figure out the WPA key.

I hope I was of some help, feel free to contact me if you're still confused.

My son wants to do xbox live but cannot gain access to our wireless router. I have a vista pc connected to the router and 2 other computers in the house that connect fine. Help me please...son driving


Please open your router page and open the DMZ page give an IP address.
Then open X-box page and force the same ip address it will allow your x-box to communicate with the router.

Cannot connect to xbox live with wireless adapter


Ok, I am just going to start out by saying do you have a wireless router.  I know this may seem obvious to some people, but I have ran into many incidents where people were under the impression that if they have a computer and the internet, the wifi for the xbox will work.  If you dont have a wireless router, or there is not one built into your DSL box, then you can hop down to walmart or newegg.com and get one for around 30-40 bucks.  Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
