2)On the X-Box get into the setting's menu where you will find and option for wireless set up and then scan for the network , it will automatically scan your ssid , select that and will ask for the password enter that and you will be connected.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

X-BOX


On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.

2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.

3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.

4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.

5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.

6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.



Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365. Also you will need to open the ports on the router.

For X-box port numbers are - 53, 80-88, 3074 .

If other devices can connect once your son is off then it might not be a problem with a router. Try connecting the xbox VIA WI-FI. If the problem persits i would contact your ISP.

XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!).
One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)

Hi there,

Its to do with your router, every now and again your router settings will turn to strict, as you proberly not usings a xbox compatible router, dont worry not many people do, i dont neither.

All you have to do is just turn off the router for 30secs and turn it back on, this will allow you to play on live again.

Personally if you can, connect it to the routher via a ethernet cable, it provided a much faster connection.

Nat / strict


First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
