    My xbox recently quit allowing me to connect to xbox live. It says there is no network adapter detected but my internet works fine and I even tried it at a friends house and it says the same thing. It appears that something might be wrong with the xbox itself where its not detecting any ethernet cords (i've tried several). I didn't damage it since I was online with it just the other day. My friends can get online and I can't...this really sucks. I was hoping there is something I can do besides send it off for repairs?

Xbox live IP address and gateway dont seem to work


Make sure you are using the xbox networking adapter. Some networking adapters may work on it but if you encountered any problems, xbox tech support won't be able to assist you with some troubleshooting since they don't support any product other than the xbox networking adapter.
  • To test the connection, go to the system area on your xbox live dashboard then go to network settings and select test xbox live connection.
  • If you pass on all test down to NAT then it means you are connected already and you can now enjoy playing online.
  • If you fail on the first part of the test which is Network Adapter or if it says not connected on Wireless Network then you need to perform some steps.
  • Get back to the network setting's area by pressing B on your controller and select restore to factory defaults. Doing this will restore the xbox live settings to default and you need run another test again which may allow you now to pass.
  • If you still fail on wireless network then it means that you need to set your console to wireless mode by going back to Network Settings and selecting the Edit Settings option.

How to connect to Xbox Live wirelessly


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live Connection"

If it works your good to go!

My x box 360 keeps freezing ans saying you are disconnected from xbox live, what do i do ?


If your screen freezes when playing on Xbox LIVE, the problem may be related to your Internet connection. A weak wireless signal can cause poor Xbox LIVE performance. If you are using wireless connection:
1. Go to My Xbox and select System Setttings. 2. Select Network Settings. 3. Select Wired Connection or the name of your wireless network. 4. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If your wireless signal is only one or two bars, try improving your signal strength by following the suggestions below.
  • Move your router or gateway off the floor and away from walls and metal objects such as metal file cabinets).
  • Minimize obstructions along a straight-line path between your Xbox and your wireless router or gateway.
  • Shorten the distance between your console and your wireless router or gateway. Ideally, your network hardware should be near the center of your home.
  • Change the position of the antenna on your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (external adapter only).
  • Turn off wireless devices. If your router uses the 2.4 GHz band, try turning off wireless devices, such as 2.4 GHz cordless telephones and Bluetooth devices.
  • Try changing your wireless channel. Wireless routers and gateways can broadcast on different channels and one channel might be clearer than another. See your hardware documentation for help changing wireless channels.
  • Add a wireless repeater to extend your wireless network range. You can boost your signal strength by placing a wireless repeater halfway between your router or gateway and your console.
  • Add an Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter.
  • Switch wireless signal bands. If you have a dual-band router and an external wireless adapter, try switching the router to a wireless protocol that transmits on the 5 GHz band (wireless protocol A or N). Please see your hardware documentation for help with changing the wireless protocol.
  • Switch to a cable.

How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.
    2. Enter your wireless network password and select Done.
    3. The console will automatically try connecting to Xbox LIVE. If you get an error message, go to the following webpage for help: support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx)

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article: 977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  6. Select Scan for Networks.
  7. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article: 909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

I was playing call of duty and it disconnected me and now it says notice,you must have an active network connection to play xbox live or system link matches.how do i fix it?


The problem seems to be a random disconnection from your home network. Try unplugging and replugging your wireless adapter or Ethernet cable. If the problem persists, try enabling and disabling these connections from your Console settings on the Xbox Live Dashboard.

Wont let me connect to xbox live


Check your firewall on your router. The Xbox Live service uses UDP ports 88 and 3074 as well as TCP port 3074 for its IP networking.

Xbox 360 wireless


There should have been an instruction manual that came with your wireless adapter. But anyways, you may be connected to a password protected router and need to put in the password via the dashboard. I'm pretty sure you would goto network settings and then select the network you'd want to connect to.

Xbox live


Well, you arent supposed to connect them together to play xbox live. You would need to connect them to your wireless network and both of the xbox 360's wouod need to have a wireless adapter. With these ,you could connect to xbox live, or use system link and connect the two.

Xobx live!


When you go to your network setting page, you arent supposed to manually type in the data. You are supposed to keep it on automatic. **Notice how on that page there are three sections.** Go to the bottom one and press "A". This should open a window where you will select your wireless network. Select yours and test your xbox live connection. If all goes through, than you may click on edit settings to find that all of the data is automatically set in for you.

If you run into any more issues, Send me a message and i'm sure I can help. (Im gettin pretty good at this.)
