Make sure that the wireless settings on your router is the same as the settings on your XBOX also the Xbox should be able to work when wired to the modem to make sure that ports are not blocked. You can give that a consideration too.

Hope this helps, if you have other questions, message me then I'll answer it as soon as I can.

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 can not seem to get onto the internet with my Wireless connector for the xbox live it is trying to get a signal but is not connecting can you help. The connecter is flashing at Green but just does not...


make sure that you run the dvd it came with, that is the most important, then go into your setting on the xbox and pick your router out of the list, the green light should stop flashing when it picks up your router, especially if you have a password on your router, you will need to enter that in the settings screen

I keep getting dropped from xbox live with my wireless N router. Is this common? Is there a common setting I forgot to turn on?


Did you try moving the wireless adapter to a different location, possibly the front of the xbox to get a better signal. Make sure nothing is interfering with signal such as objects in the way or other obstructions to line of sight between the wireless router and the xbox. Try running xbox live on a wired connection to see if you have the same problems. If still have a problem then it is a ISP or xbox live issue and not your wireless adapater.

I'm trying too get connected to xbox live but it's


This mainly depends on your internet modem, I use linksys when I play xbox live. Also I use wireless adapter, sometimes an ethernet cable as well to plug straight from my xbox to my modem. Make sure your modem is connected to the internet, and that if your xbox has a signal, or properly connected to it.
Hope this helps a little. Good Luck!

Testerday we connected to xbox live but today we cant connect why


Are you wireless or are you wired. If you are wireless, sometimes phone signals interrupt the wireless signals if you have a wireless phone nearby. Some wireless phones are very messy with the signals they send.
