NetComm NP285 xbox compatibility?

Hey, I'm wanting to connect to Xbox Live and have a wireless network. I have a Belkin 54g router and a NetComm NP285 bridge (I think its called a bridge, not sure) with ethernet cables. when I go to network settings-->advanced--> wireless, it tells me that the wireless adapter was not detected. Do I need another component to connect, or is the NetComm not compatible?

Rj 45 wall connection in my room for internet. i want to go wireless mac,ipad xbox etc .can i use belkin n150

You can assuming all your devices support wireless. (Black XBox does). You may only get B or G wireless unless your devices support the N mode wireless. I will warn you that wireless on XBox can cause issues of lag while playing heavy network usage games on Xbox Live such as FPS's like Call of Duty. With the N150 you should also have wired ports in the back which would still let you connect wired devices.

What is providing internet to the RJ-45 Jack in your wall. If it is a college they may have port security turned on in their network which will not allow other Hubs/Routers to be plugged into the network.

    I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


    XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

    All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
    Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

    alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

    Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
    It will work

    Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

    (However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

    5) This will open up router interface(here we have to do some settings)
    6) In the left hand side column, click on FIREWALL.
    7) Leave the password blank in login page and disable the FIREWALL. Click on Apply Changes.
    8) Under FIREWALL(in the left hand side column), click on DMZ

    No wireless internet - problem with belkin router

    From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.

    XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router

    I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.

    I bet this helps!
