How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.
    2. Enter your wireless network password and select Done.
    3. The console will automatically try connecting to Xbox LIVE. If you get an error message, go to the following webpage for help: support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx)

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article: 977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  6. Select Scan for Networks.
  7. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article: 909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

I have the Xbox 360 with built in Wi-Fi. When I try to set up Xbox Live all the networks are locked. There is one network that isn't locked but it wont connect. PLEASE HELP!


You need to have a wifi connexion at home that you can connect to. You will need the wep or wpa key ( a protection code for your network) that was programmed in your router so that you can connect to the network. If you do not have a router or a wireless connection at home, you can only connect with a network cable.

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.

Need wpa key for xbox live


WPA key is your Wireless router key for internet access.
To connect your console to wireless internet and go to Xbox Live you must enter WPA key for your wireless router.

It`s a same key than you use to connect your Notebook, cellular phone, etc. to your home network.

My wireless has a WPA key and Abox is asking


  1. Plug in the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter to one of the USB ports on the back of your Xbox 360.
  2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and navigate to "My Xbox" and then "System Settings."
  3. Go to "Network Settings" and then "Configure Network."
  4. Select the appropriate settings for the wireless network you will be connecting to on the "Basic Settings" tab.
  5. Enter the name of the SSID of the wireless network you will be connecting to. If the SSID is not broadcast, select "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter in the SSID of the network manually.
  6. Enter in the wireless security key (WEP or WPA) so that your Xbox 360 can access the network.
  7. Select "Test Xbox Live Connection" back on the "Network Settings" screen to verify that your Xbox 360 is now connected to the wireless network and ready for use.
Should work for either WEP or WPA

Need a network key code for the live box.


Hey ehouse1,

What XBox Live is most likely requesting from you is your Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) key to access your wireless network. Without the WPA key, your XBox will be denied internet access by your router or residential gateway.

You may generally obtain your WPA key by accessing your router/gateway from a connected computer on your home network, and by visiting the default router address through your internet browser. Please note that this default address differs from model to model, but is typically one of the two following:

http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1

Additionally, you will most likely need to have your router's user name and password handy in order to access the hardware's menu settings. Once you have access, you should be able to find your WPA key under "Security Settings" or another similarly-named option.

If you are not comfortable doing any of this or are still unsure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance. Most ISP's are able to provide over-the-phone technical support and walk-throughs for their customers free of charge. In some cases, they may even be able to provide in-home networking services to help set up your Xbox.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
