Hi,

As i understand your concern that you are trying to connect XBox 360 wirelessly. I want to tell you that in Xbox 360 there is an option to configure your wireless setting on the xbox 360 and once you tried connect wirelessly it will give you the option to connect and if it is connected successfully you should able to go online. But in any case if you are not connected it will give you that error message. To setup your xbox you required to know wireless setting for your router. Like Your network name and wireless security password is you have any. Once you tried to connect with your network and enter all the relevant information it should work without having any problem.

I believe that this will help you to resolve your concern.

You need to goto your router admin panel

Virgin media 192.168.0.100
Sky (Sagem) 192.168.0.1


Find the IP address section if you are connected you will see the IP address and MAC address of the the XBOX if this is the only client connected it should work,

Press the windows key + <R> then type ping 192.168.x.x

Replace the x with the numbers that you see on the connected client

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

Constant red light now on my xbox wireless adaptar after working


my first suggestion is check your setting to make sure everything correct. to be sure re-enter everything if you still have problems. I would then check if the adapter can read your router (this can be done by searching for a signal). if the router is found and can connect but failes connecting to internet your router itself may not be connected. make sure your router can connect by itself and that you can connect to internet through the router from your computer. if all these steps are takin try config your router so it will accept incoming signals and that it has the right security for the xbox to connect.

Xbox has been connecting no problem via netgear router. Suddenly it has stopped and cant go live any more. Dont know how to work out if it is xbox wireless adaptor or netgear router.


Do you have any other computers or game consoles hooked up the netgear router? if the other computers etc. can connect to the Net via your router, then it sounds like your Xbox adaptor might have failed.

Cannot connct xbox 360 wireless adaptor


Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

Either use an ethernet cable to plug your router into your xbox or if you have wireless you need to buy a wireless adaptor (about £60), plug it in to the back of your xbox, type in the security code and you're in :)
