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.

Bad xbox 360 connection


You have two options to improve connectivity:

1) Move your XBox closer to the router. If you are connecting wirelessly, move your XBox as close as possible to your router. The farther away they are, the slower your connection speed.

2) Purchase an ethernet cable and plug it in. An ethernet cable can connect to your router and be plugged into the back of your XBox. This is the best way to utilize as much juice as possible from your router and get you the connection speeds you need to play online. Ethernet cables run about $20 depending on the length and quality, but its a great investment if you are doing a lot of online gaming.

Hope that helps!

My internet connection is fine. the light is green on my adapter. but i'm so laggy. no really i can't go online at all.


trying moving the xbox closer to the router for a better signal. its also possible the NAT type for your router is too strict to allow good online play. Check your router to see if you have a DMZ or demilitarized zone which would allow you unfiltered access toy our xbox and hopefully make your connection better.

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.

How to hookup wireless internet


To connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.
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. Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.

I can't connect to my friends on my xbox 360


Hi,

Go to the Xbox360 System area and run the Network Test and see how it goes. A Strict NAT setting will allow you to play online but will affect the connectivity somewhat. In my case I had to log on to my Router and Allow certain ports access. My router had Xbox Live as an option to open, yours might too, have a look.

Goodluck.

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
