Wont stop flashing green and I can not connect to xbox live yet I used to be able to Any Help Thanks, Paul


IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console

  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.
  4. 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
  5. Select Scan for Networks.
  6. Select your wireless network name.

    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal

  7. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

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

    If you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, you'll see this screen:

IPaddress failed


When this sort of thing happens it is usually a DNS error. The easiest thing to do would be to cycle your network. You can do this by unplugging your dsl/cable modem for a minute and plugging it in again.

XB360 also has a network test option that will tell you where in the network the connection is failing in the case that it is not a DNS problem.

Wireless network adapter for xbox 360


First off, The SSID is the name for your wireless network, and the WPA Key is the password to access you'r network this is usually set automatically by the router. However, there should be a sticker somewhere on the router, if not find out what you ip address is and go to it in an internet browser usually 192.168.-------- here you should be able to figure all of this out. If you are prompted for a password, try Username: admin and Password: password1or password. if this doesn't work look on the back of the router for a litle hole that is labeled reset push a pin or paperclip through tyhe hole and hold down the little button until all of the lights on the router flash, now the default access stuff listed above should wor.
