Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Need to enter/edit WEP Key details in XBopx 360.

XBox 360 says I have a connection problem so I restored it to its factory settings. Now I want to re-enter my router's WEP Key but I doesn't show me a screen that allows this. What am I doing wrong?

How do i connect to live?



1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live".


applysettings.jpg3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then "Additional Settings" tab then select "Advanced settings" & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the "Alternate MAC Address" part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live". editbasic.jpg3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you'll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
automanual.jpg
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".
If you faced any other kind of troubles with this part failing even after you tried these steps please don't hesitate to leave a comment.

Having problems setting up my wireless networking adapter


What is the brand and model of your wireless router?

We need to know the settings (SSID, wireless security, security key/code) on the wireless router to match the settings on your xbox wireless adapter.

On your XBOX, go to System, then Network Settings, then select "Edit Settings".

Select the wireless network name or SSID of your wireless router. For the network mode, select Infrastructure. Select the security type if WPA or WEP and enter the Passphrase or WEP key.

Save the settings then select Test Xbox Live Connection.

I hope this works! Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated. Good luck!

The light stays red, won't connect.


If the light on adapter is red it means that it cannot establish a wireless connection.

We need to get the wireless settings on the Belkin router and match those settings to your xbox adapter.

Use a computer to access the setup page of the belkin router. In a web browser's address bar type: 192.168.2.1.

It will prompt you to enter your router password. By default, just leave the password blank.

Once you are on the setup page, go to the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, Broadcast SSID should be enabled.

Then Under Wireless go to Security. Take note of the Security Mode (WPA or WEP), Passphrase or WEP key.

Now, on your XBOX, go to System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

Select the SSID. Select Infrastructure for the Network mode. Select the security type if WPA or WEP and enter the Passphrase or WEP key.

Save the settings then select Test Xbox Live Connection.

I hope this works! Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated. Good luck!

What is a wep key, and where will i find it, for setting up xbox 360 thanks


WEP stands for Wireless Encryption Protocol and it is the wireless key for your router.
The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
You will need to find the WEP key in your router's administration page and then enter it on your xbox under the system settings then network settings.

I got a new xbox 360, and i need to connect my xbox back


you need to go to your xbox settings and your network settings, find your network and put in the wep key for your router. If you don't know your wep key for your router, the easiest way to find it is to go on your computer, open a browser of some kind (e.g. internet explorer, firefox, safari etc.) and type in the ip address. The most standard ip address is 192.168.1.1 or something close to that. It should bring up the settings for your router and you can find the wep key usually under the wireless tab and then wireless security and your wep key should be right there! enter it into your xbox and have fun gaming. =)

Cant get xbox live connected


You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Zoom X6 Adsl Router


You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
  1. Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
    • Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
      • IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
      • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
      • Gateway: 10.0.0.2
    • Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
    • Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
    • Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
      • Primary DNS Server: 10.0.0.2
      • It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
    • Select Done.
    • Power down your Xbox 360.
  2. Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
    • From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.2 in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
    • Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
      • User Name: admin
      • Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
  3. Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
    • In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
    • Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
    • On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
      • Internal IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
      • Protcol: DMZ
      • Start Port: 0
      • End Port: 0
    • Click Save Changes
    • Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
    • Click Write Settings to Flash
  4. Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
  5. Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
    • Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
    • Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
    • Enter the SSID of your network
    • Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
    • Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
    • Go to the System area.
    • Select Network Settings.
    • Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
  6. Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.
