What you need:A high-speed Internet connection such as cableA router, gateway, or wireless access point (WAP) that is compatible with Xbox LIVE.An Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (original Xbox 360 console only)Instructions:On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.Select Network Settings.Select the name of your wireless network. Enter your wireless network password.Select Yes if you are prompted to update your console software.When you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, your screen will look like this:
In this guide I will go over how to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet either via wired or wireless connection.
*For a wireless connection you need a wireless access point(router) and either a Xbox with built in wifi adapter or purchase a xbox wireless adapter*
-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings" -Select "Network Settings" -Select the name of your wireless network. If you do not see your network, select "Advanced options" then select "Specify unlisted Network" then enter your network name. -Enter your wireless network security key. It may prompt you to update your console, select yes.
*For a wired connection you need to use an Ethernet cable and plug one end into the back of your xbox and the other end into your router or cable modem.*
-Turn on your xbox and go to "My Xbox" then go to "System Settings" -Select "Network Settings" -Select "Test Xbox Live Connection", afterwards it may prompt you to update your console, select yes.
Now, you are connected to the internet and can enjoy xbox live.
Open the Network settings and show available networks. Select the available network and when asked to insert the Modem Authorization data, type in the WiFi password.
The password should be on a label attached to the modem.
For $200, they probably will be:
(1) backing-up all your data files;
(2) using the CD-ROMs that came with your computer, reinstalling Windows
(3) applying all the Windows Update and Microsoft Update security-updates
(4) reloading free software (Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader)
(5) installing some anti-virus software
(6) restoring your data from a backup
Troubleshoot your wireless network with HP mobile and wireless solutions
update (flash) the Bios install all the Nvidia updates (chipset and Video) Audio Modem (only if you use this to access the internet or possibly will in the future - ie on vacation) Hp software updates (Quick Launch and Q/L Critical update) Essential Vista updates (these are the ONLY Microsoft related updates I installed) Finally the Wireless Driver update (in my case the Broadcom W/L Card) and
the little blue light came back !!! Even better was that it turns off
when it's supposed to and back on when it is supposed to. Wireless
Works - I tested by connecting to multiple different networks for
stability (just go to a couple of different MacDonald's, Starbuck's and
Safeway stores to try this if you cannot find available networks in
your neighbourhood) You don't have to connect to them, just get to the
point where it checks for the passcode/network key and you've
successfully communicated with the router and this will count as
connecting to a wireless device. i have TURNED OFF ALL WINDOWS
UPDATES, this is important because it is an update to the operating
system (Windows Vista) that is causing the problems in the first place.
(Not a conspiracy between HP/Compaq and Microsoft to cause you to pay
for expensive parts that don't fix the problem or go out and pay for a
full copy of Windows Vista and have it installed professionally) I
used to work for the retailer that sold me this laptop for my step
daughter (and HP authourized repair centre) and now i work for a
Network and Systems Support HelpDesk so i can safely say that you don't
need to fall for the warning from Microsoft about needing to keep your
operating system constantly updated because if you connect to a
Wireless network in the fireplace you are behind a firewall and thus
protected by the nasty little things floating around out there. If
you are worried about the security concerns about your browser
(internet explorer) the download Firefox - it is built on a much safer
code and is regularily updated as well and won't leave you open to
installing the nasty microsoft code that breaks your laptop
Microsoft security updates have disabled wireless cards in the past, preventing systems that connect via wireless card to connect. One way around this is to revert to a point before the update or uninstall the particular update that is causing the problem through "Add Remove Programs" and usually within a few days Microsoft will have an update with a fix available. Though this is the first I've heard of such a problem recently, it's not unheard of.
How can you go to microsoft updates if you cannot connect to the internet via wireless or directly connected to the modem as these are the only two ways you can get internet. So, do you have internet? If you do go to this website to download Service Pack 3, as this is the newest Service Pack, here is the link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsxp/sp3/default.mspx . Hole I helped.
You are very limited here, but it's not impossible. Have you tried getting to a wired connection temporarily? A long way around would be to reinstall Win XP with a disc that includes the update. A word of warning though, the fix you have described (KB822603) is already included in SP2 on Win XP...SO... while you are connected to the wired internet connection, you may have to get an update for the driver of the netgear wireless wn111 hardware as well.
I hope this helps.
