The 1st question I have is, are you using the official Microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly) manufactured by Microsoft? That is the first solution to this issue. If so you must go into your router settings using the home router IP address usually listed on the router unit and setup the router manually to see the microsoft wireless adapter (sold seperatly), try typing this ip address into your browser address line (192.168.1.1) this is usually a generic router IP address to access your router. Your 360 should have a MAC address listed when in the settings and that should be seen by the router as well. Also check your firewall settings to make sure that it allows wireless transmissions. ( My computer usually has to be running for it to see wired & wireless devices properly). I also prefer just running a wired network for connectivity issues with wireless, such as other electronic interferrence from cordless phones & microwaves as I sometimes get with my nintendo Wii.

    on your router there should be a default IP address. Try that also check the microsoft xbox 360 website for compatible routers as your router may be incompatible. But all routers have a default ip address that can be used to set up all the features of your particular router..

I can connect to xbox live wireless when in same room as router but go upstairs and can not connect..help please


Could be due to metal in the floor like insulation shielding the radio.
Would suggest using a power point switch if power points are on same power circuit
http://www.techbuy.com.au/searchcat/NETWORKING_ETHERNET_OVER_POWER.asp
and then either connect power point network switch to another wireless access point upstairs to cover upstairs area. All settings have to be the same as wi fi router down stairs. Same encryption password . Or you could just plug the Xbox into the power point ethernet network switch via ethernet blue cable.

Cant connect xbox live to my wirless router


Typically that is located in the software of your router. Which means you need to open a web browser on a connected computer. Usually the URL to access the router's configuration page is: http://192.168.1.1
default username: admin
password by default: admin

in the configuration from there under wireless, and then wireless security, there would the location of the WPA key be.

Xbox live


Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally

Hey i just got a xbox live wirless hookup and i have a computer down staris and i dont no why it wont hook up can someone help me


It should hook up but Xbox live is having a ton of issues basically xboxlive is down and wont be back up for a while. you can go to www.xboxlive.com and search under status then go to support this will let you know when you can connect back up to xbox live.

If you problem isnt with xboxlive then you will need to get a wireless router. Then go through the steps to set up a wireless network and then set your xbox to that wireless network.
