In order to do that you would have to plug this into your xbox 360, not your computer. HOWEVER, Microsoft only supports their own wireless adapter for the xbox 360 .... this one: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Network-Adapter-Networks/dp/B000B6MLV4

I have also heard that wireless gaming can have lesser results. But if you want to do Xbox Live wireless, you will have to have a router and Microsoft's XBOX wifi adapter shown in the link above.

To connect to Xbox live, your best bet is to (if you dont have one) get a router, connect it to your Internet modem, and plug it into the xbox 360 using an ethernet cable.

Tip

Setup your Xbox to a Wireless Network


Xbox game consoles can be connected <span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span> to a router<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/routers/g/bldef_router.htm"></a> for wireless access to the Internet and Xbox Live. Follow these instructions to set up the Xbox or Xbox 360 connections to a wireless home network.<br /><br /> <ol> <li>Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/od/hardwarenetworkgear/g/bldef_adapter.htm"></a> to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet sometimes also called a wireless network bridge must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi <i>game adapters</i> that connect to a USB port.<br /><br /></li> <li>Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Advanced -&gt; Wireless -&gt; Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Edit Settings."<br /><br /></li> <li>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.<br /><br /></li> <li>Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)<br /><br /></li> <li>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. Note that the standard MS Xbox Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.<br /></li> <li>Save your settings and verify the network is functional.<br /><br /> On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.<br /><br /> On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.</li></ol> Tips: <ol> <li>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.</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">Troubleshooting</span><br /><br /> The built-in diagnostic of the Xbox can help with any falure.Navigate to the <i>System</i> area of the Xbox Dashboard, select the <i>Network Settings</i> menu option, then select <i>Test Xbox Live Connection</i> to run the test at any time. If the Xbox 360 built-in network diagnostic fails with the following message: <br /> <ul><i>Technical configuration error. Please contact Xbox Customer Support.</i></ul> This indicates a network issue requiring further investigation. The Xbox 360 network diagnostic contains the following tests run in the order listed below. Steps for troubleshooting Xbox 360 connectivity issues depend on which test reports the failure. <br />If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /> <b>Note</b> You can use an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter with the Xbox 360 S console. If your wireless router is not near your console, you may get a better wireless signal by using a wireless networking adapter. When you connect an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to an Xbox 360 S console, the console will automatically use the wireless adapter instead of the built-in Wi-Fi.<br /> If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /><br /> Step 1: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of your Xbox 360 console.<br /> Step 2: If a network cable is plugged into the back of your console, unplug it. Step 3: Check the light on the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter.<br /> If you're using the black adapter with two antennas:<br /> <ul> <li><b>No light:</b> The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector, and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console.</li> <li><b>Green:</b> The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.</li> <li><b>Flashing green:</b> The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.</li> <li><b>Red:</b> The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of your console. </li> <li><b>Flashing red:</b> There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure.</li></ul><br /> Configure your wireless settings Go to <b>My Xbox,</b> and then select <b>System Settings</b>. <br />Select <b>Network Settings.<br /></b>Select <b>Configure Network</b>.<br /> <ol> <li>On the <b>Basic Settings</b> tab, select <b>Wireless Mode</b>. <br /> <b>Note</b> If Wireless Mode is still not available, there might be a problem with your hardware. <br /></li> <li>Select <b>Scan for Networks</b>. </li> <li>Select your wireless network name. <br /><br />If your wireless network is not listed, try either of the following:<br /> <ol> <li>Try improve the router signal by moving the router position.If you are not broadcasting your wireless network name, select <b>Specify Unlisted Network</b>, and enter your wireless network name and security type. </li></ol></li><br /> <li>Enter your wireless network password, and then select <b>Done</b>.</li> <li>Press the <b>B</b> button on your controller, and then select <b>Test Xbox LIVE Connection</b>.

Wont stop flashing green and I can not connect to xbox live yet I used to be able to Any Help Thanks, Paul


IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console

To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to http://kb.netgear.com to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

Xbox live problem


If you cannot connect using the wireless because the signal strength is too low, you can connect the Xbox using a LAN cable to the router. You might need someone to install the LAN cable for you depending upon how you can locate neatly.

Msg on xbox says ''not connected''


sure, the usb port must be the back port, when you plug it in the light on the wireless adapter should be red. Once you turn the xbox on, the wireless should turn green. Go to test xbox live->test xbox live->edit settings-> the wireless settings should be at the bottom (the 3rd one down) click on it, (here if you have a password for your network insert the password. -> (press b to back out once) and test xbox live again. It should work if it doesn't please let me know, i'm doing the settings off the top of my head.
Hope it works.
