Xbox 360 wireless adapter not finding network

Im using a apple airport wireless router in 802.11g mode, my computer (which is right next to the xbox) has 3 out of 4 bars of signal strength yet the light on my adapter is red, i have all security on the network turned off and it is broadcasting a network name but the adapter still doesnt pick up the signal.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Sir,

Reset your AX by holding a pin or pen tip and count to 20.
Plug Airport Express
Wait a few minutes

1. Open Airport Utility
2. Manual Setup
3. Airport Icon -> Wireless Mode -> Join a wireless network
4. Network Name -> Enter the SSID of your Linksys router
5. Choose the same wireless security that you are using on your Linksys Router
6. Wireless Password -> Enter the wireless key that is on your Linksys router.

In the Music Icon, you should be able to find "Enable iTunes"

AX will continue to blink for a bit, perhaps a minute, while it searches and connects to the Linksys Router.

Should turn green.

Good luck.

I was going to buy an Xbox 360 wireless network adapter but im not sure if my Buffalo Router will connect to it. can anyone help


Just about any newer routers should work fine with the Xbox 360 wireless adapter. It you are worried about compatibility make sure you get the newest Xbox 360 Network adapter. It is the black one with two antennas. It will work with just about any network.

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 192.168.1.1 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. =)

All i need is a wireless router and an adapter right?


If your router is protected by password you need to configure it but the only equipment you need is the router, the adapter and a provider.
