BT HomeHub wireless router which cannot connect to the XBox 360

We have a BT HomeHub wireless router with 2 laptops finding the signal easily enough. However, my son's XBox 360 with a new wireless adapter N (black model with 2 antenae) does not read the signal. We have keyed in the wireless hub code and even manually input the IP address. It still cannot connect to the hub. Any ideas please?

Your router may have incorect connection settings. what i mean is that your router may have security on that rejects connecting to adapter. check if the xbox can connect to the internet via ethernet cable. this will tell for sure if the 1 the adapter cannot read the signal or 2 the adapter is not able read any signals. to test if its the adapter, try searching for other signals.if you find any other signal it means your router. is rejecting to send the signal to the xbox.

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

1) Reset the router then the xbox.

I just subscribed to wireless internet, what does my son need to hook up his xbox wireless


Hi,
Your son will need a long enough ethernet cable to run from the router to the console,or a wireless xbox adapter, these in the uk cost about £45 they are prone to lagging if the console is too far away from your wireless router, I would recommend buying 2 comtrend powerline adapters, about £30 off ebay, they use your existing power cables that run through your house, so no infuriating lag.
Hope this helps.

The newer 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz wireless routers should reach a couple of hundred feet. Make sure you do not have your SSID hidden. If you do, you will need to manually enter it into the xbox settings along with other security you have on the router.

Wireless not working from netgear wg311 to a new bt homehub2


Hi Backatya,

Check what kind of security you upgraded BThomehub 2 uses. Since the hub supports more security-types then your adapter does, I suspect an incompatibility there.

You can solve it by connecting through cable and changing security to WEP or WPA (not WPA2).

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

The Xbox 360 does NOT have an "internal" network adapter, you'll have to purchase one separately (I believe they retail for around $99) in order to connect wirelessly.

If you DO NOT purchase the wireless network adapter then you'll be forced to connect with an Ethernet cable.
