Question about 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless Router

1 Answer

Connect XBox 360 to 3CRWDR200A-75 wirelessly

I am trying to connect my Xbox to my 3Com router wirelessly. The Xbox sees the router but can never establish a connection. I have tried turning firewalls on and off, the same with encryption and many other variations of settings. In fact I have been doing this for a week now.

 

Prior to this router I had another make which worked flawlessly via wireless but did not have an ADSL modem. So the wireless adaptor on the XBox does work and is in fact only a month old. I have tried a wired connection to the router and it works beautifully. Unplug the cable and it all falls down.

 

Signal strength according to the XBox is 100%. SSID is correct. I have tried using DCHP on as well as off with static settings. All these settings work wired but not wireless.

 

Please let me know if there is a solution to this issue.

    Forget XBox Live, it fails on the second test, "wireless network". At this point the 3Com is set for wireless netwrorking, no encryption and other wireless devices can connect to it and get onto the internet.



     



    Signal strength according to XBox is 100% as well. XBox sees the network but refuses to connect. The Netgear I had works perfectly. Going wired to the 3Com also works prefectly.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have tried everything again taking care to unplug the XBox adaptor... still no joy. Thanks for trying though.

    Same problem here. Tried restarting everything, even tried windows Connect Now. No dice. Contacted support and all they did was have me restart everything which I'd already done. Of course it didn't work when they told me to do it either.

    By that I take it's just the wireless adapter. Have you tried resetting it? Mine I had to reset alot, or it would get stuck on old settings.

    Try resetting it, then reconnecting it. By going to Edit Network I think its the last one down, click that wireless network on the 360 and connect to it.

    Good luck,

Tip

Setup your Xbox to a Wireless Network


Xbox game consoles can be connected <span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span> to a router<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/routers/g/bldef_router.htm"></a> for wireless access to the Internet and Xbox Live. Follow these instructions to set up the Xbox or Xbox 360 connections to a wireless home network.<br /><br /> <ol> <li>Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/od/hardwarenetworkgear/g/bldef_adapter.htm"></a> to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet sometimes also called a wireless network bridge must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi <i>game adapters</i> that connect to a USB port.<br /><br /></li> <li>Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Advanced -&gt; Wireless -&gt; Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Edit Settings."<br /><br /></li> <li>Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.<br /><br /></li> <li>Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)<br /><br /></li> <li>Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard MS Xbox Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.<br /></li> <li>Save your settings and verify the network is functional.<br /><br /> On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.<br /><br /> On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.</li></ol> Tips: <ol> <li>Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">Troubleshooting</span><br /><br /> The built-in diagnostic of the Xbox can help with any falure.Navigate to the <i>System</i> area of the Xbox Dashboard, select the <i>Network Settings</i> menu option, then select <i>Test Xbox Live Connection</i> to run the test at any time. If the Xbox 360 built-in network diagnostic fails with the following message: <br /> <ul><i>Technical configuration error. Please contact Xbox Customer Support.</i></ul> This indicates a network issue requiring further investigation. The Xbox 360 network diagnostic contains the following tests run in the order listed below. Steps for troubleshooting Xbox 360 connectivity issues depend on which test reports the failure. <br />If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /> <b>Note</b> You can use an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter with the Xbox 360 S console. If your wireless router is not near your console, you may get a better wireless signal by using a wireless networking adapter. When you connect an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to an Xbox 360 S console, the console will automatically use the wireless adapter instead of the built-in Wi-Fi.<br /> If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /><br /> Step 1: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of your Xbox 360 console.<br /> Step 2: If a network cable is plugged into the back of your console, unplug it. Step 3: Check the light on the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter.<br /> If you're using the black adapter with two antennas:<br /> <ul> <li><b>No light:</b> 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.</li> <li><b>Green:</b> The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.</li> <li><b>Flashing green:</b> The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.</li> <li><b>Red:</b> The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of your console. </li> <li><b>Flashing red:</b> There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure.</li></ul><br /> Configure your wireless settings Go to <b>My Xbox,</b> and then select <b>System Settings</b>. <br />Select <b>Network Settings.<br /></b>Select <b>Configure Network</b>.<br /> <ol> <li>On the <b>Basic Settings</b> tab, select <b>Wireless Mode</b>. <br /> <b>Note</b> If Wireless Mode is still not available, there might be a problem with your hardware. <br /></li> <li>Select <b>Scan for Networks</b>. </li> <li>Select your wireless network name. <br /><br />If your wireless network is not listed, try either of the following:<br /> <ol> <li>Try improve the router signal by moving the router position.If you are not broadcasting your wireless network name, select <b>Specify Unlisted Network</b>, and enter your wireless network name and security type. </li></ol></li><br /> <li>Enter your wireless network password, and then select <b>Done</b>.</li> <li>Press the <b>B</b> button on your controller, and then select <b>Test Xbox LIVE Connection</b>. If you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, you'll see this screen:Choose <b>Yes</b> when you are prompted to update the console software. <br /></li></ol>

Im trying to connect my xbox 360 to xbox live but its gives me an error about eh MTU setting being to low i checked the router page but i cant find the tab/button to change it.


Sounds like a firmware problem on the router. login to the router and check the firmware version against the latest from 3com - the router should be able to check automatically.
Double check the universal plug and play (uPnP) is enabled - it should be under security settings on the router.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

Cannot connect my modem to xbox live


Try disconnecting your Xbox from the modem, turn both off, wait 60 seconds.

Reconned the Xbox to the modem, turn the modem on, wait 3 minutes, then turn your Xbox on. That should work.
