Question about Microsoft LIVE ONECARE 2.0 XP/Vista for PC
I bought a wireless network adapter a couple days ago. I went in to network setting and connected to my network, put in the WPA, and it says it's connected and had full bars. But when I test the connection it fails at the network stage.
I tried replacing the adapter, thats didn't work. The IP and DNS settings are set to automatic. When I plugged the xbox into the router with an ethernet cord it worked, but is far too inconvenient for a long term solution. Noone at comcast, apple, or microsoft knows what the deal is.
Anyone know of a specific network setting on the router or xbox I need to setup? My roommate said his old roommate got live to work in the same apartment using the adapter, so it's been done. What is going on?
Go to your Airport Utility, then Option-Click the radio setting button
to reveal a drop down menu, from there, select "b/g compatible", not "n
(b/g compatible)". That takes away the benefits of an 802.11 n network,
but it gets the job done with 54 Mbps.
Next up is to Option-Click the button for encryption setting and select "WPA Personal". In DHCP settings under Internet, using the 360's MAC address, reserve an IP so it stays consistent. Finally, in your NAT options, select the 360's IP address as the "Default Host" to prevent any Live functionality issues, and restart your Extreme Base Station. Once you go to the network settings on your System blade, you should see your WPA-encrypted network show up. So your 360 and Airport Extreme can work together with encryption, although you kind of neuter the Base Station in the process.
