Having trouble getting x-box 360 to find a wireless connection.
We are trying to get the x box 360 to find a wireless connection.
I have a D-Link DIR-300 wireless router but I am unable to find the manual to find SSID #. Not really sure what I am doing,,not very computer savvy. We have the wireless adaptor for the x-box. Sorry guys..not sure what other info you need

You need to use a computer to set up the wireless router. Go to the computer and open internet explorer. In the address bar, where you would type www.microsoft.com, type in 192.168.0.1. This is the router address. You will get a screen asking you for a password and user name. The default user is "admin" there is no password. you can then go into the router and configure the ssid as well as a password.

Check the label under or at the back of the router for the default user name and password.. If you can't connect with this information try a reset ... hold the reset button in for 30 seconds to attempt a reset. If unsuccessful try again but also hold the button in while unplugging and reconnecting the AC adaptor at the back of the unit. If it still fails to reset after trying this a few times the unit may have a hardware failure.
Is the adapter fully connected to the Xbox and did it successfully install any software needed for the adapter.
Is the wireless network you are trying to connect to active and are other wireless devices connected to the wirless router?
Are you network settings on your xbox correct for your network? Do you have any kind of network access key or password and was it correctly added to your X box wireless network adapter settings?
Have you tried power cycling the wireless router after powering off your Xbox? If not, power off your Xbox, then power cycle your router, turn on the Xbox and attempt to connect again.
There are times when a router restart is necessary to connnect to new devices. It would not hurt to power cycle your internet provider equipment as well. Power cycle the internet modem, then the wireless router, if they are separate pieces of equipment.
If your not sure of your network settings, be sure to check with the person who set up the network so your wireless router will allow access to your Xbox.
Let me know what you have done and any other details you can give me about the problem if what I have suggested here does not provide a solution.
Go to a cmd prompt. To go there, simply type cmd in the search. You can access it by going to your C hard drive, find Windows folder, in the folder locate System 32 - look for cmd.
When you are in cmd:
Type IP config and see if you have an @ssigned IP in the range setup in the router. If not try C:\ipconfig\release then C:\ipconfig\renew Likely that this won't work. The steps I took were: 1.) Go to Start/Control Panel/Network Connections. Right click on the wireless connection. Go to TCP/IP in the components section and click the properties button. Make sure Obtain IP and DNS address are both set to automatically. 2.) I had WEP enabled, make sure your wireless card and the router are both set to the same encryption 64 or 128 and make sure they are both on the same channel. 3.) Try C:\ipconfig\release then C:\ipconfig\renew again and hopefully you'll get an IP address.
HI Configure the Router1.Step 1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter." 2.Step 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank. 3.Step 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup." 4.Step 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP. 5.Step 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password. 6.Step 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
