I just got this new x box 360 to replace the older version x box, but i am not able to connect to x box live, the wep key is correct, but it still says there is a problem and it will not connect. I have...

Likely is not an issue with your Xbox 360 but instead an issue with your router being able to communicate with the Xbox 360. I had a similar issue. (eventually I was not able to use a wep key as my router was not syncing up with any of my devices proeperly with the wep key. I factory reset my router and instead closed my router to allow only specific mac ids to allow access instead of using the wep function)

If you are in control of your router then attempt (for testing only) to open your router so that it does not require a security wep code. If you are able to connect your Xbox 360 via this route then you know that it is an issue with the router trying to communicate via wep key use.

Also, try connecting via lan line and making sure that your router is able to work with your Xbox 360. Eliminate all scenarios before you take back your Xbox 360 or any other device when dealing with routers. Likely culprit is not the device but the way the router is trying to communicate with the device.

My son has just bought a Xbox 360 kinect and he wants to sign up for the online Xbox live and we are unable to get the WEP key in order to connect. We are using the Netgear but have tried,...

What you are entering are IP addresses, these are not the WEP encryption key.
The XBox needs the Netgear WEP encryption key, this is in the Netgear wireless settings.
To get this encryption key connect a LAN cable from a computer's LAN port to the Netgear, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = password
You can now go into the wireless settings - you can view the WEP encryption key

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How do i hook up the netgear to my laptop

you'll have to first connect the computer to the dsl/cable modem via ethernet cable, then connect the modem to your computer directly, then access the configuration page of the router and set the wifi settings including security option (WPA, WPA2, WEP, Shared), then open the wifi adapter settings on your laptop and make sure the security option and security key are entered correctly. disconnect the ethernet cable from the laptop to the modem and test the connection.

I cant connect a wireless adapter for xbox live it keeps asking for a wep key i dont know it how do i get it i have a netgear wireless router WGR614. can anyone help?

Your WEP key is the key (or passcode) you entered when you (or someone) set up your wireless router. If you didn't set it you need to ask whoever set up your router.

Need my wep code

the WEP code was set either by you during the setup of the wireless modem, or by the manufacturer. If you set the code and cannot remember it, try resetting the modem back to its factory defaults, the manual for the modem will tell you how to do this. If you no longer have the manual, go to the netgear website and download a manual through the support portal.. Don't be tempted to leave wep turned off, without it, anyone can access your network and your internet connection, steal your identity, bank details etc or simply use up your download limits..

My xbox wont connect to my internet router i have connected my laptop with no problem how do i get my xbox to connect?

right, the 1st problem is either 1 if it is wireless the encryotion key used could be too complex for the exbox to under stand. so you will need to change it to wep. if it is a netgear router then the user name & login address and p/w are underneath it. 2nd if it is via Ethernet cable then make sure mac address filtering is not enabled as this will not allow the xbox to use that router, this can be turned off buy the way following the info above.

Wireless security via MAC address

I would enable WPA encryption and keep the MAC security on. Even though no other computers can connect due to the MAC security, without the encryption your network still looks wide open and it will tempt people to connect. At least if they see there is some sort of encryption on they will not even bother with trying to connect to it.

I have a netgear wireless router, I also have a new PS3, I want to access the internet via the PS3 but have lost my WEP key for the router. Whats the easiest way of finding the WEP key Thanks Darren

wep key or router administrative password?
if you have router admin password, you just go to your router settings and reset, delete all WEP key setting
(i assume one that connect to your router is only the PS3)
The setting should be web-based.
connect a pc to your router using LAN/ethernet port.
Access the router (you should know the router
ip address) via IE ex:
Read your router manual for details.
