That's actually "SSID" (a letter I, not a number 1) and means "site service ID." It's the identifying string a wireless access point broadcasts on the radio channel so you can pick it out from the others. You assign the SSID to your wireless router if you're setting up a network, or enter that name if you're being asked what network you want to connect to when several might be detected.

Trying to connect to xbox live. Keep getting error that tells me to change my MTU to 1364 or higher. Im an idiot can you tell me how to change this setting. tried admin & blank password did not work....


If your Linksys is still in its factory condition, admin is the Password, leave the user blank. However, the issue may be the firmware version according to the Linksys site. Go to this link and follow the procedures for setting up your Linksys router and pay special attention to section ii and follow the link provided to ensure your firmware is up to date. If you don't want to update the firmware, then turn off uPNP and change the MTU setting to manual and 1500.

Wireless Connection Conflict


I would enable/disable your mac address clone. Do the opposite of what ever the setting is. You should be able to the setting on the main setup page. If it does not fix it, change it back. I know that can cause a connection to quit working if the setting is not correct.

How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?


The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

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.

    Network connection failed when trying to connect to xbox live


    You may want to try the following:

    Use a different ethernet cable.
    Reset the router and xbox by powering them down for at least a minute.
    Run the connection wizard under Xbox Live.
    If the test passes you should be connected to the web.
    If not you might have a problem with either the router or the xbox.

    Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...


    hi,
    there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
    but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
    thank you.

    Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers


    1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
    2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
    3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
    Hope this helps!

    Linksys wireless connection to xbox 360


    Goto your computer and click on start, the goto run, then type in ipconfig at the command prompt.

    Write down the GATEWAY ip address as this is the Linksys router ip.

    Now open up Internet explorer and type in the GATEWAY ip that you just wrote down.

    You will be prompted with a username and pw screen/box. Factory default username is admin with pw is just blank(not the word blank but just nothing entered as the pw), or admin as the pw.

    If you're lucky you should be able to manually configure the router without the config cd. If not, I have had this issue before and you will have to contact linksys for a replcement CD as some routers do require install cd since manual setup just doesn't work for some reason.

    can you tell me what type of router you are working with.
    most routers have about 4 cat five cable slots where you can plug them into other computers. If you have a wireless router and you have a wireless adapter for the xbox that will work also.

    another question are you working with the xbox360 and if so do you have an xbox live account?

    another thing you might have to go into the setting of the router usally on the main computer to do this you will have to bring up the command prompt where it can be found at for windows 98/2000/xp/vista <start >all progams >accesses command prompt > type in ipconfig it will pop up with a default gateway and your ip you take the default gateway open your brosswer type it in. If you have not set up a password most routers have it as admin. from there i would need to know what kind of router you have ! hope that helps a little
    let me know
