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.

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.
