My Xbox 360 ADapter Cannot Aquire a IP Address from my Modem

I bought a Xbox 360 Wireless Internet Adapter a few days ago, and i have followed the steps, and tried every possible thing on the xbox and the Adapter Side of it and the Xbox and the router seems fine, so i turned to firewall problems, and recently tried adding the TCP 80 UDP 88 Etc etc Settings i also tried disabling my Firewalls and turning my Xbox off for 30 seconds and turning it back on etc, but nothing works, although it works perfectly when i Use the Ethernet cable to connect it to the internet, ive also tried using Auto and Static IP settings but nothing so far will work, so my conlcusion is that my Modem is set to Static, or something and i need to change it to Automatic, and try it again, But from previous efforts i am sure it wont work, so is there anything at all you can suggest, thanks.

I've never heard of a Wireless Adapter turning amber or orange? This can be a simple light problem inside your Xbox 360. If it were fixed, the highest possibility is that color should be red. If so, this means the connection is not strong enough to your modem, and adapter. You will have move your Xbox 360 console closer to your wireless modem for the connection to be the best.

You will need to match the wireless settings of your router and the gaming adapter.
Who is the manufacturer of your router?
connect your computer to the router with the cable and open the set up page of the router. check the wireless settings of the router SSID, Channel, security settings.
now you gaming adapter and the Router IP address should be in the same range. Suppose if the router IP address is 192.168.x.y and the default IP address of the gaming adapter is 192.168.a.b., then the number x should be equal to a. If it is not then you will need to change the IP address of the gaming adapter so that x will be equal to a.
after that open the set up page of the gaming adapter and change the wireless settings.
power cycle the router and the gaming adapter and now it should work.

  1. First, turn your Router off and wait for a couple of minutes (unplug power from the wall)
  2. Turn off your modem (unplug power from the wall)
Reboot both the devices and they will obtain a new IP address.

"wireless network not connected"???


Enter your IP address? If not go to http://whatismyip.com/ and enter that manually into your internet settings, on the last tab on the right of the dashboard. If the wireless adapter isn't reading the signal then you might have to reposition your router so it receives the signal.

Wireless adapter


It sounds like you have an access control (allowed MAC address) list set up on your wireless router and have not added your Xbox 360's MAC address to the list.
