You can go with the following steps to configure the x-box 360 with netgear wgr614:-
1)First and foremost you should be aware of the wireless settings you have on the router i.e ssid(broadcast name) and the type of security(wep or wpa-psk) and the password for that.
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.
3)Go for the connection test if it's successful then play games with it and if not then follow these procedure:-
a)Get any computer which has the internet access to it , Open the IE page and in the address bar type http://192.168.1.1/ or http://routerlogin.net/, a small window will prompt up asking for user name and password which is admin and password respectively.

Having trouble connecting Xbox live. Have wireless router and wireless Xbox 360 adapter. Figured out where adapter goes. Now I'm stuck.


Is the router already setup and working? Do you have anything else that successfully connects to it "wirelessly", like a laptop or desktop or smartphone? If the answer is yes, here's how to setup the 360 to connect to your router:

1. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
2. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
3. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
4. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.
5. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option.
Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need: Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

My xbox won't connect to my wireless router


Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

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.

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.
