You might try re-setting MN-100 router back to the default setting. Do this by ... look in the back, there is a small hole at one of the ends. I have mine standing up and the (small) hole is at the top. Which you can use a straighten out paper clip and lightly push it in the hole to re-set. The trick to it - is that you have to hold it for a little bit of time. I'm not sure what the time figure is, 5 or 10 seconds something like that ... but the lights on the front will start to blink. Look in you manual, it will show you where the hole is.

My xbox 360 says im connected to xbox live checked network setings and it says xb ox live is up and running...however when i try to play need for speed online..it says xbox live not working functionally?...


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.

Can connect to router, but not to internet


Is the main computer connected to the router or to the internet directly? If it is a cable modem for the internet, make sure you turn that off, as well as the router, and connect the cable modem to WAN on the router and put the modem on first, then the router. Connect the computers, xbox, etc to the router

I am having problems with my dsl router


id say yes it can be done by folowing these steps on both xboxes
1. Make sure your wireless router is correctly connected to your Internet access and is broadcasting the wireless signal.
  • Step 2 Connect the Xbox 360 console to a Microsoft-manufactured WiFi adapter with a USB connection. This is different from an older Xbox console, which required an ethernet connection.
  • Step 3 Turn on the console and navigate to the Wireless Settings menu. Go to "System - Network Settings" and then finally to "Edit Settings."
  • Step 4 Configure the console's SSID to match that of the router. The SSID will be pre-selected and appear on the Xbox's display if the router is set to broadcast the SSID. Go to "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter the SSID.
  • Step 5 Set the Network Mode to "Infrastructure."
  • Step 6 Set the security of the Xbox 360 to match the router's security. Set the console to WEP or WPA encryption, whichever one the router uses, and enter the router's encryption key.
  • Step 7 Save all your settings after configuring them. Confirm that the console is connected to the network by going to the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option. This will tell you if your wireless connection is working.
