Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I have a wireless router for my home. My computer connects wirelessly without problem. the xbox360 is connected directly to the router, i.e. NOT wirelessly (LAN). The console will not find a connection if the WAN on the router is password protected. When I test the network settings it seems to fail a different test each time. If I leave the network unprotected then the xbox has no problem connecting to xbox live. How can I fix this so that I can use xboxlive and still have a protected wireless network?
Hey stchivo, not entirely sure what's happening. It might help to know what type of router you have. I know the new linksys routers have a new security feature by the name of SES or something of the sort. Make sure that is disabled and that DHCP is enabled. Also make sure a firewall on the router isn't blocking it. It might help to have screenshots of your router settings to better evaluate what's happening.
