MY XBOX CAN SEE THE WIRELESS CONNECTION BUT WONT CONNECT


You either need a WEP password or you have a very weak connection. If you have a weak signal just move your console closer to your router. If you need the WEP code its located on your router.

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

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.

I recently purchased a xbox 360 wireless N network adaptor for the xbox 360. The router for my home network is a Linksys wrt160n. Problem 1- weak signal. the xbox is on the same floor less than 50 ft away...


btwork

In regards to your weak signal count how many walls are actually between the router and your XBOX because this can effect your signal strength. You may need to move the router into a more open area.

As for the network adapter running in G mode and not N mode if you have any G wireless devices connecting to the network this will bring the router down to G mode. So ether you will have to run a G mode or upgrade your other devices to an N network card. Another option would be to get another router or access point to set one closer to you XBOX to get a better signal.

In regard to accessing your video and music files on your computer you do not have to open a port your firewall but set the XBOX as approved device. If you go to this link it will help you get your system setup properly.

Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 can't connect to xbox live and cant obtain IP address


if its having trouble obtaining ip address it sounds liek you need to manually config the connection on the xbox by typing in the name and any wep key and than going into your router and making sure it has multiple ip's available for the xbox for my xbox I had to enter the name of the connection because it was a weak signal despite the proximity I changed it to connect to linksys which was my router name at the time and never had another problem I hope this info helps if nothing I suggested works it may be a problem with your adapter just not having the signal strength if you have had it connected via wire in past and know the router will accept other computers than I would have to say this is your problem


Hope I helped
Please leave feedback
Thanks

Cant grt xbox360 wireless adapter conected to wireless router on pc down stairs


I assume the wireless router is configured correctly and the PC can connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
The problem could be that the signal is too weak upstairs for the XBox especially if you have a concrete floor between the XBox and the wireless router. Try moving the wireless router around to increase signal strength to the CBox.
The other problem could be the XBox is not configured correctly.
Follow these instructions to configure the XBox.
  1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
  3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
  4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
  5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
  6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

If you are using a wireless connection you could have a weak signal, move the router or the XBox to get a stronger signal.
You could be getting an interference with other wireless routers/access points in your area. Check the broadcast channels of the various routers/access points in your area and select a channel that is not being used for your wireless router.
