    @ dahaka, actually I listed the full http address for that link in my first post it got cut off so i reposted it with the < a href code to ensure a proper hyperlink. I appreciate what you are saying though and could see how that might be unnerving =)

Hi Kev716
When you say the red light comes on, are they 3 red flashing lights?

What is network adapter mean


A network adaptor is an interface device that allows your PC to communicate with other computers and the internet. There are wireless and wired adaptors.

Wireless adaptors usually connect your PC to the network through a wireless router and modem. Wired adaptors (also known as ethernet adaptors) connect your PC to another computer, a router or a modem using a cable.

My connection is very bad, is it because of my wireless adaptor?


The problem is not with the wireless adapter . Your problem is your wireless connection has low band with and your not getting a strong signal . Try moving your 360 closer to your wireless base station or to a room thats closer to your wireless . If the problem persist use an internet cord and run a direct link to the wireless base to the xbox 360 . Also check to make you dont have any other wireless devices connected to your network as this can reduce your band with and cause your Xbox 360 to not get a strong signal .

I just bought an xbox i got wireless adaptor, how come i cant sign up for online it says ''cant cannect xbox live select test connection to trouble shoot your connection''


(These instructions are vague because they are from memory, so sorry if they are not very clear)
Go to Console Settings, then go to Network Settings, then click A on the first thing that comes up, continue clicking A until it returns you to network settings. Then try to connect to Xbox Live again, if you still can't connect, then the xbox 360 console is not close enough to your internet source, or you don't have a wireless internet connection.

Hope this helps!

How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?


The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

Hook up wireless network to play xbox 360 online.


Hey Lil Man23,

There are two things that you'll need in order to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet wirelessly: a wireless router and a wireless network adaptor. While both of these may often be obtained through an internet service provider (ISP), you can generally purchase both hardware devices from a local retail store.

In order to connect to the internet, your Xbox 360 will need to be set up in what is referred to as "infrastructure mode." This essentially means that your Xbox 360 will be set to connect to a single access point (the wireless router) in order to access the internet. If you're not quite sure how to do this, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to do so in your owner's manual, or by using Microsoft's Xbox 360 Connectivity Wizard:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/connectionmethods/webconnectivitywizard.htm

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your ISP for further assistance. Many ISP's are able to provide home networking services for their subscribers, but remember that there may be a charge for any in-home services provided by your ISP or any third-party company.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

make sure that your wireless connection does not have a password set to it, and that it is within range of the adapter.
