Typically that is located in the software of your router. Which means you need to open a web browser on a connected computer. Usually the URL to access the router's configuration page is: http://192.168.1.1
default username: admin
password by default: admin

in the configuration from there under wireless, and then wireless security, there would the location of the WPA key be.

How do I connect Xbox 360 wirless network up


There are two ways to set up wireless connection to your Xbox 360, and get Xbox LIVE. Now remember, for you to do anything with the wireless connection, you need to buy Xbox LIVE. The company has a 3 month free trail for Xbox LIVE that you can sign up for. Then, when you have that bought, your true experience can begin. If you are fortunate enough that you console location is near your internet router, then you can hook up your 360's internet cord to the back of your router. then you will have to go to your internet configuration and test your connection, and you will have live. The other way is by going to Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or any other game seller and buy something that is called the Xbox 360 wireless connection router. I'm not sure if that is the exact name, but it looks like a pretty small internet router. Then, you hook that up to the front or back of your 360, into one of the many USB ports, and you install it. You may need help and may have to call Xbox 360 customer service. But, those are the two ways to get live.
Please rate.

Thankyou, Good Luck, Noob815

IP ADRESS FAILED ON XBOX 360. TRIED 2 DIFFERENT ROUTERS SAME ERROR


xbox configures the connection automatically as long as it is able to detect an internet connection(either wired or wireless). For wirless connections though, make sure xbox is using the correct security key or wep key for the wireless connection.

I cant get wirless xbox live


The 1st question I have is, are you using the official Microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly) manufactured by Microsoft? That is the first solution to this issue. If so you must go into your router settings using the home router IP address usually listed on the router unit and setup the router manually to see the microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly), try typing this ip address into your browser address line (192.168.1.1) this is usually a generic router IP address to access your router. Your 360 should have a MAC address listed when in the settings and that should be seen by the router as well. Also check your firewall settings to make sure that it allows wireless transmissions. ( My computer usually has to be running for it to see wired & wireless devices properly). I also prefer just running a wired network for connectivity issues with wireless, such as other electronic interferrence from cordless phones & microwaves as I sometimes get with my nintendo Wii.

Router cant b found


Locate the reset button on the rear of the router.
Should be below the antenna and recessed use a paper clip or similar to hold in for 10 secs.
This will reset the router back to factory defaults.
Type in 192.168.2.1 into your browser and you should get the routers setup page. Click the login button, no password is required. You can set this up yourself once in the router setup.
Be aware this router is NOT on the Xbox live supported list.
Check link below for supported Live Routers.
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm
If you have only bought thi recently get it swapped out if you cannot connect to live once reset.
Let me know how you get on.

Xbox 360 wireless connection


If you already have wireless router you will need something like this:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/x/xbox360wirelessnetadapter/

Or you can always buy a third party wireless device that is capable with Xbox 350.
