The passphrase to the wireless encrypted network? You might have to reset the router to take the encryption off. Otherwise, try opening a web browser from a computer on the wireless network and going to the router's admin page. The password might be in there.

SOURCE: I dont know my security key or passphrase

Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

I dnt know my WPA passphrase for my xbox live and now i cnt connect.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the Xbox, laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the Xbox, laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Cant figure out how to connect to xbox live?


there is a way to reset the modem but you will lose your configuration and you would have to start all over again.
on the back of the modem where you connect the cables there is a tiny hole it may say reset. with the modem on, go ahead and stick a pen, toothpick or something of that nature in to the reset hole and hold it for about 10 seconds, you would see the lights go out and come back on. at that moment go ahead and release the tiny button and wait for modem to come back on. At this point you can go ahead and reconfigure it, you have to enable the wireless feature, enable you password (both set up and configuration), rename your network, etc. DO NOT keep the default settings and try to use WPA instead of WEP is harder to crack. for you to do all of this you have to connect your computer to the modem with a cable and type the address to access it or open ie and type homeportal in the address bar. it should take you to the configuration page (if it is a 2wire modem).

if it works for you, don't forget to rateme


thx

Having problems setting up my wireless networking adapter


What is the brand and model of your wireless router?

We need to know the settings (SSID, wireless security, security key/code) on the wireless router to match the settings on your xbox wireless adapter.

On your XBOX, go to System, then Network Settings, then select "Edit Settings".

Select the wireless network name or SSID of your wireless router. For the network mode, select Infrastructure. Select the security type if WPA or WEP and enter the Passphrase or WEP key.

Save the settings then select Test Xbox Live Connection.

I hope this works! Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated. Good luck!

The light stays red, won't connect.


If the light on adapter is red it means that it cannot establish a wireless connection.

We need to get the wireless settings on the Belkin router and match those settings to your xbox adapter.

Use a computer to access the setup page of the belkin router. In a web browser's address bar type: 192.168.2.1.

It will prompt you to enter your router password. By default, just leave the password blank.

Once you are on the setup page, go to the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, Broadcast SSID should be enabled.

Then Under Wireless go to Security. Take note of the Security Mode (WPA or WEP), Passphrase or WEP key.

Now, on your XBOX, go to System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

Select the SSID. Select Infrastructure for the Network mode. Select the security type if WPA or WEP and enter the Passphrase or WEP key.

Save the settings then select Test Xbox Live Connection.

I hope this works! Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated. Good luck!

How do i set up the wireless connection for the xbox360. i need a WEP key or WPA passphrase


The WEP or WPA key for your local wireless router would be the same as the one you enter into your Xbox. If you don't know that, you should reset it to something you know on the router.

Linksys WRT00N Xbox360 wont connect to router


You'll just need to enable wireless security. Do the following steps:

1. Using your main PC, open Internet Explorer. Type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar the press enter.
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Leave it blank on username and type admin on the password box then hit Ok. Otherwise, try your own password if admin didn't work.
3. When you get to the router's Setup Page. Go to Wireless tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
4. For the Security Mode, select WPA-Personal. On the Passphrase or Shared key box, type your own password (8 letters minimum). Then click on Save Settings at the bottom. That's it, your network is secured now. Just remember your Passphrase or the Shared key, that is your wireless network password.
