Yes... the device you are looking for is called a "wireless ethernet bridge". They allow ordinary wired ethernet devices to communicate wirelessly. They are also known as "wireless gaming adapters" for XBox 360 and Playstation 2, since niether have wireless cards
XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless
All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online
alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key
Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work
Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable
(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)
You need to open the ports that the xbox and PSP uses to connect to the internet in your router. Contact your Router's support and ask them to open the ports in the router for you so that you can connect your game and go online. this is issue with port being blocked.
that happens alot when one or more device (for instance, the xbox 360 and a cpu) are trying to use the same ip address make sure you have the xbox 360 and all other devices (cpu's/printers) that are connected to the router set to aquire ip address automatically
How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
