Wireless adpater not working with xbox 360

Hi, i have just been hooked up with cable internet with a CG814WG modem that came with a wireless adapter - WG111TRA (802.11g), which the tech said would work on the xbox 360. my question is how do i get my xbox to recognize it? He said to install the drivers from the installation disk but xbox 360s dont recognize it. Tried all 3 USB ports and i cant even get the light to display on the adapter.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Jason

If its not a black xbox 360 slim than it doesnt have wirless so you either need a wireless adapter or ethernet cord that will hook up to the modem from the xbox.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

I can not connect to xbox live. I just got the card today and im trying to hook it up, but it keeps saying "can not connect" go to support


It sounds like your internet connection is the problem. Ensure whether your internet is wireless or wired that it is connected properly.

If wired that it is plugged in both your xbox and internet modem, and that it is not the ethernet cable itself. (they can stop working for one reason or the other).

If wireless that your wireless adapter on your 360 is plugged in all the way and that the information in your xbox network settings is all correct.

I just subscribed to wireless internet, what does


IF you have a wireless modem/router and yous wish to hook up your xbox 360 into it, you need to purchase a wireless networking adapter for the Xbox 360 because the Xbox does not come with a built in wireless card. Once you have that accessory you can configure the wireless network in your console.

I have a netgear router CG814WG v3. trying to use my xbox live working and the Xbox recommendes wireless mode 802.11a currently i'm the network is using 802.11g can this be changed?


Hi, your router does not support wireless mode 802.11a, now I haven't got the Xbox 360 Wireless adapter, but it supports all 3 standards (802.11a, b, and g) So should work fine with your current setting on 802.11g, the 802.11a is recommended because it avoids interference especially from microwaves, as this operates on the same frequency on the 802.11g standard. So best thing to do it, not use a microwave!. But if interference is a problem, then you would have to replace your router that supports all 3 standards.

My wireless adaptor on my xbox360 won't connect to the router


suggestion try using mixed mode wireless b/g this will allow the wireless g router to see the wireless n adapter, it will not have high speed mimo technology enabled but it will fucntion as a wireless g adpater, good luck with it. having a wilress n router is required to pair their the wilress n adapter, otehrwise no speed benafit or mimo technology, i hope this helps you a bit. their was very little to work with, but i think we have it.
