I have a laptop, desktop, and xbox 360. I have a d-link extereme n gigabit router model dir 655. My desktop is connected to my router and my laptop and 360 are wireless connected. I can get on xbox live just fine and i can connect wirelessly with my laptop just fine. i cannot stream videos from my laptop to my 360 wirelessly though. I have the latest version of windows media player and when i cannect my laptop to my 360 with a wired connection i am able to stream, just not wirelessly. when i go to my router control panel, it finds my laptop and desktop but not my 360 even though i am on xbox live and can play video games which i thought was strange. when i test media connection on my 360 it says pc selected has failed. I cannot get past this. any solutions would be awesome.

well, unless the D-link is also a modem/router, I don't see how ADDING the D-link router to a lagging network will reduce said lag. They probably wanted you to REPLACE the current router with that one.....

will "frontier service" allow that router to be set in a "modem-only" setting ? You'll have to get with them on that. as for the D-link, there are manuals as well as an Online Emulator that simulates the Router interface so you can see how to set it up....BEFORE you set it up !

[PS: tracking-down lag problems can be tricky....you should be experiencing bad lag with all sites for it to be your hardware....

Connecting a tp link wireless usb adapter to xbox 360


It is not possible to use generic usb wireless adapters with the Xbox or Xbox 360 game console. By 8246b47.jpgJohn Anderson Jun 20, 2012
The post John Anderson is correct that this would not work with a XBOX device. These are intended for and installed on computers (laptop or desktop) with which you would need to install drivers for it on. There is supported drivers that will allow the installation of this device into either a XBOX or PlayStation gaming console.

How do i find wep key from desktop so i can set up wireless for xbox 360


The WEP encryprion key is in your router's wireless setting.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption instead of WEP. WPA is a later and much stronger encryption.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions:-

If the light is flashing but the disk does not start you need to go into system settings/console/startup and turn the "Disk" auto startup ON. It was set to off for me by default. Restart and it will install the update from the disk.

Cannot connct xbox 360 wireless adaptor


Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
