    I can get wireless to work on my computer upstairs, but the main computer downstairs where the NTL modem is connected through the G+ mimo router wont connect to the internet, unfortunatly I dont have the disc anymore, I think it just isn't configuring with the computer and I dont know how to configure it.

When you say at the main router are you implying that there is a cable between routyer and computer? But it works when you plug in the USB dongle?

The computer downstairs is this trying to use wireless?

Without this info it is hard to tell what is going on (also the device model numbers). So I'm going to give you a quick IP lesson and hopefully you can troubleshoot this yourself.

Near the end of writing this I found some more specific info for your router. Read entirely before trying my suggestions. This is only one of a possible 3 other problems you might have and encourage you to write back if this one doesn't work. We will fix your problem. I as a electronics tewch believe the more knowledge my clients have the easier it is for to diagnose over the phone (I am disabled) so bare w/me.

The first thing to understand is how computers hook up to the Internet. A computer most hook up mechanically between itself and the router. This is done either plugging cables directly from the computer to router or via a wireless interface. This establishes the mechanical connection only - it has nothing to do with the Internet yet. Once this is done than you establish the software connection. This is when the TCP/IP, WWW. E-mail, etc come into play. These are all software and establish their own set of protocols (how the computers "talk to each other). Each device is given an IP address such as The important part of this is each device on your network must have first 3 octets (192.168.0) assigned to it. The fourth part (.100) is the individual number of the device. There are also 2 other addresses you need to know about. One is called the subnet mask; it is always set at The other is the default gateway. This is the actual router address. Here is a point of confusion for many people. A router has 2 addresses, one on the private side (your side) and one on the public side (ISP's side.) A router also has a piece of software in it called a DHCP Server. This means the router assigns an IP address to your computer. This is called dynamic addressing. The other way a computer gets an IP address is to assign it at the computer. This is called static addressing. Netwok devices come set for all intents and purpose. These setting are called the default settings. Depending on the individual manufacturer, these settings will vary. The default router IP address might be,,,, But do notice that it begins with 192.168 or 10.0 . These addresses are saved specifically for the private side of networks. Keep in mind that I'm just simplifying the process for you but this should be all you need for this purpose. Routers always end in .1 (unless there are mutiple).

I suspect your computer has an interface problem with the IP addresses. But let's check the mechanical interface first. At the bottom right of your screen (where you see the time) there should be a network icon (looks like 2 monitors, one behind the other). If it does not have a red "x" through it this means your are connected mechanically. If not, write back and we'll go through fixing that.

First we are going to check the IP addresses. All clicks are left clicks unless otherwise stated. I am also taking it for granted you are using Windows XP with the basic settings. Click the "start" button. Click "run" (usually the lower left in the start menu). Enter "cmd" in the box that comes up at the bottom left. This brings up the command prompt screen (old DOS window). Type "ipconfig" , then press enter key. It should give you three pieces of information: IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway. The IP address and default gateway should look similar except the last digits. The default gateway should be The IP address (last group anything but .1). The subnet mask should be

OK - just found information for your specific router. The default IP address is Just for giggles - don't close the "command prompt" window yet. After you have the information from the ipconfig command type "ping" exactly as I have it written (space between the g and 1). It should come back with 4 lines of
"reply from, etc".

If this you DID get the second reply, then close everything and you should be at your normal XP screen. On the lower right side, find the network icon as described above. RIGHT click the icon. A small window pops up. Click "repair". This should make it work.

If it still doesn't work we need to futher diagnose the problem.

    Try this.

    Shut down everything, computers, router and modem. Wait a couple of minutes then, in this order: turn on cable modem, wait a minute till it reboots, turn on router eait a minute. Now turn on computer.

    This forces the modem and router to clear themselves and forces the public side of the router to get a new IP address from your ISP...

I'm afraid your only option is to get the drivers one way or the other before you can connect to the internet or the network.

What I recommend is simply downloading the drivers from another computer that has access to the internet and transfering the driver package with a USB key or an other portable storage device.

Cant connect to internet using internet stick

The internet stick you have would be a USB device which is not supported by Xbox 360, you can connect to Xbox 360 wirelessly or through a wired connection

One way of connecting wireless internet is through the ethernet cable to a laptop paired with your wireless router, or you would have to buy a Wi-Fi adapter for Xbox 360 which retails around $90.

Since Xbox 360 does not have a software like a PC, it is unable to recognize the USB internet stick you have as a internet connection, it may probably end up showing it up just as a USB device on the system settings menu on the Xbox 360 dashboard

Cant connect wireless

If the stick is the solution, why are you avoiding the solution?

From what you have said, the internal wifi in the Evo doesn't work, while
an external usb stick does.

Assuming that your internal wifi is properly configured and functional, it is
incapable of picking up your home wifi signal, though it might be functional in other situations ... Buying an external usb stick gives you a better antenna position and takes nothing away from your system, while adding functionality and sheilding the innards of your system from viral
attack as a first line of attack that is detachable.

Buy the USB stick.

Can't Connect to Internet

there is a need to reconfigure your router to work with your modem. If configured already before, then there is great chance that this has been set back to factory default.
