WEP wrong length

Hello! I use my neighbor's internet, and his WEP key works fine when i use it in my Xbox 360. However, trying to use the same key to connect to the internet from my laptop brings up a message saying that the password has to be 40 bit or 104 bit. I would like very much to get on the interwebs with my laptop, so any assistance would be appreciated! I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro and a Intel(R) PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter built in. Thanks!

That means the type of security key you are selecting is different with the type on Router. Change the type like WEP.WPA, WPA-2 and try entering the same key.

Likely is not an issue with your Xbox 360 but instead an issue with your router being able to communicate with the Xbox 360. I had a similar issue. (eventually I was not able to use a wep key as my router was not syncing up with any of my devices proeperly with the wep key. I factory reset my router and instead closed my router to allow only specific mac ids to allow access instead of using the wep function)

If you are in control of your router then attempt (for testing only) to open your router so that it does not require a security wep code. If you are able to connect your Xbox 360 via this route then you know that it is an issue with the router trying to communicate via wep key use.

Also, try connecting via lan line and making sure that your router is able to work with your Xbox 360. Eliminate all scenarios before you take back your Xbox 360 or any other device when dealing with routers. Likely culprit is not the device but the way the router is trying to communicate with the device.

Where can i find my wep key

Your WEP key is the password on your wireless internet connection.

Whomever set up your wireless internet connection (wifi) should be able to provide the WEP key for you.

What is a wep key, and where will i find it, for setting up xbox 360 thanks

WEP stands for Wireless Encryption Protocol and it is the wireless key for your router.
The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
You will need to find the WEP key in your router's administration page and then enter it on your xbox under the system settings then network settings.

I got a new xbox 360, and i need to connect my xbox back

you need to go to your xbox settings and your network settings, find your network and put in the wep key for your router. If you don't know your wep key for your router, the easiest way to find it is to go on your computer, open a browser of some kind (e.g. internet explorer, firefox, safari etc.) and type in the ip address. The most standard ip address is or something close to that. It should bring up the settings for your router and you can find the wep key usually under the wireless tab and then wireless security and your wep key should be right there! enter it into your xbox and have fun gaming. =)

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.

Cant get xbox live connected

You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.
