Setup your Xbox to a Wireless Network


Xbox game consoles can be connected <span style="text-decoration: underline;"></span> to a router<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/routers/g/bldef_router.htm"></a> for wireless access to the Internet and Xbox Live. Follow these instructions to set up the Xbox or Xbox 360 connections to a wireless home network.<br /><br /> <ol> <li>Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter<a href="http://compnetworking.about.com/od/hardwarenetworkgear/g/bldef_adapter.htm"></a> to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet sometimes also called a wireless network bridge must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi <i>game adapters</i> that connect to a USB port.<br /><br /></li> <li>Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Advanced -&gt; Wireless -&gt; Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -&gt; Network Settings -&gt; Edit Settings."<br /><br /></li> <li>Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.<br /><br /></li> <li>Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)<br /><br /></li> <li>Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard MS Xbox Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.<br /></li> <li>Save your settings and verify the network is functional.<br /><br /> On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.<br /><br /> On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.</li></ol> Tips: <ol> <li>Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">Troubleshooting</span><br /><br /> The built-in diagnostic of the Xbox can help with any falure.Navigate to the <i>System</i> area of the Xbox Dashboard, select the <i>Network Settings</i> menu option, then select <i>Test Xbox Live Connection</i> to run the test at any time. If the Xbox 360 built-in network diagnostic fails with the following message: <br /> <ul><i>Technical configuration error. Please contact Xbox Customer Support.</i></ul> This indicates a network issue requiring further investigation. The Xbox 360 network diagnostic contains the following tests run in the order listed below. Steps for troubleshooting Xbox 360 connectivity issues depend on which test reports the failure. <br />If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /> <b>Note</b> You can use an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter with the Xbox 360 S console. If your wireless router is not near your console, you may get a better wireless signal by using a wireless networking adapter. When you connect an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to an Xbox 360 S console, the console will automatically use the wireless adapter instead of the built-in Wi-Fi.<br /> If you have an original Xbox 360 console, you need to attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter before you can connect your console to a wireless network.<br /><br /> Step 1: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of your Xbox 360 console.<br /> Step 2: If a network cable is plugged into the back of your console, unplug it. Step 3: Check the light on the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter.<br /> If you're using the black adapter with two antennas:<br /> <ul> <li><b>No light:</b> The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector, and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console.</li> <li><b>Green:</b> The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.</li> <li><b>Flashing green:</b> The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.</li> <li><b>Red:</b> The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of your console. </li> <li><b>Flashing red:</b> There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure.</li></ul><br /> Configure your wireless settings Go to <b>My Xbox,</b> and then select <b>System Settings</b>. <br />Select <b>Network Settings.<br /></b>Select <b>Configure Network</b>.<br /> <ol> <li>On the <b>Basic Settings</b> tab, select <b>Wireless Mode</b>. <br /> <b>Note</b> If Wireless Mode is still not available, there might be a problem with your hardware. <br /></li> <li>Select <b>Scan for Networks</b>. </li> <li>Select your wireless network name. <br /><br />If your wireless network is not listed, try either of the following:<br /> <ol> <li>Try improve the router signal by moving the router position.If you are not broadcasting your wireless network name, select <b>Specify Unlisted Network</b>, and enter your wireless network name and security type. </li></ol></li><br /> <li>Enter your wireless network password, and then select <b>Done</b>.</li> <li>Press the <b>B</b> button on your controller, and then select <b>Test Xbox LIVE Connection</b>. If you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, you'll see this screen:Choose <b>Yes</b> when you are prompted to update the console software. <br /></li></ol>

Wireless - Limited or no Connectivity


Hardware works but wireless doesn't and you’re getting the limited or no connectivity error.
Please note: This document assumes that you have checked that the wireless NIC is turned on and that the Wireless Service and DHCP Service have been checked and that they are both enabled on the notebook and the services are running.
If you’re unsure about the services do the following:
1. Start > Run > ‘services.msc’
2. Search for DHCP Client in the services list. The Status should be Started and the Startup Type should be Automatic. If not, right click on the service choose properties and fix the Startup Type to Automatic. Click OK to close the window.
3. Search for Wireless Zero Configurations. The Status should be Started and the Startup Type should be Automatic. If not, right click on the service choose properties and fix the Startup Type to Automatic. Click OK to close the window.
4. Close the window
5. If you had to restart any of the services, reboot the computer.
1. Update wireless driver
Boot the computer into safe mode with networking.
Hardwire the notebook to the cable/DSL modem,
Uninstall the drivers and utilities for their wireless card.
Customer should go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest wireless driver revision for their notebook.
Install the latest driver.
Shut down the computer and unplug the LAN connection.
Reconnect the router and modem.
Wait for router and modem to sync.
Boot the computer again.
Test the connection.
If the connection fails go to step 2.
If the connection works resolved.

Type in the following:
netsh winsock reset
Computer should need to be rebooted
Test computer after reboot
If the connection fails go to step 3.
If the connection works resolved.
3. Power cycle the router
Unplug the router and let it sit for 30 sec.
Power down the notebook.
Plug the router back in and wait for all the lights to stabilize
Reboot the computer.
After the computer makes it to the desktop test the connection.
If the connection fails go to step 4.
If the connection works resolved.
4. Confirm that the connection is set to b or g (depending on router)
Start > Right Click ‘My Computer’ > Manage > Device Management > Network Connections > Right Click on the Wireless NIC > Properties > Advanced Tab
Click on Wireless Mode under property
Make sure that it is 802.11g or 802.11b depending on the router.
If the connection fails go to step 5.
If the connection works resolved.
5. Move the notebook closer to the router (within 3 feet or less).
In some cases the antennae may be damaged or disconnected from the Wireless NIC.
Verify that the wireless antennae are connected to the wireless card by going under the panel and looking for them.
If the connection fails go to step 6.
If the connection works resolved.
6. Check for encryption
If encryption is there can it be cleared?
Y. Clear settings
Hard reset the router (usually involves holding down the hard reset button for 30 sec and having the router go back to default settings).
Disable encryption keys on the notebook.
If the connection fails go to step 7.
If the connection works resolved.
N. Do following
Hard reset to factory default (to clear any configuration setting that the customer may have set up).
Insert the WEP/WPA key using generic setup (on connections)
If the connection works resolved.
If the connection fails - go to advanced setup

Go to Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right Click on Wireless > Properties > Wireless Networks > Click on //Network Name// > Properties
Select WPA-PSK
Set Data Encryption to TKIP (if not already selected)
Enter Network Key (confirm case of letters)*
Confirm the key
Click OK
*Note: copy and paste does not always work … type the key in manually!!! (garbage characters can exist in a copy and paste or spaces may appear!!!)
Test the connection:
If the connection fails go to step 7.
If the connection works resolved.
7. Mac Filtering
Hard wire the notebook and verify that MAC filtering is not enabled on the router.
If it is disable the filters and test the connection.
If the connection fails go to step 8.
If the connection works resolved.
8. Verify Channels
Start > Right Click ‘My Computer’ > Manage > Device Management > Network Connections > Right Click on the Wireless NIC > Properties > Advanced Tab
Under Property choose Channel
Make sure that the Channel is the same as on the router.
If unsure:
Connect via LAN to the router and look up the channel that it is using.
If the connection fails go to step 9.
If the connection works resolved.
9. Disable Firewalls
Check to make sure that the firewalls are disabled. In some cases these can interfere with connections being made to the router.
Start > Run > MSCONFIG
Disable all startup items
Reboot the computer
Test the connection.
If the connection fails:
Uninstall all firewall software and disable the XP firewall.
If the connection works resolved.
10. Router firmware update
Conference in router manufacturer and explain the issue and tell them WHY an update is necessary (no communication between router and notebook).

Router connections


Is your speedstream router also your high speed modem? If so, you will have to go into the settings on the Linksys and change its IP Address subnet from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 (or you can use a different number than 2) You will then need to reboot both routers (and possibly the computers) and try again. The easiest way to get into the Linksys settings is to connect it directly to the laptop via network cable, then type in 192.168.1.1 in the web browser. No user name and admin is default password. (Make sure you change that, and the name of the wireless, and the security settings)
Good Luck!

Xbox live


2 Solutions-----

Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

Results should come up (for wired router)

Network Adapter - Wired
Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
IP Address - Confirmed
DNS - Confirmed
MTU - Confirmed
ICMP - Confirmed
XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

If results come out to be
''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.


Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

Best of luck

Xbox live test fails and so does update


you need to open the port that the update is trying to go through. the easiest way is to turn your firewall off, but this opens up your security. another way is to forward the correct port through port forwarding on your router. findout which port xbox live uses and put in the information to the router

Cant connect to xbox live through router


Hey stchivo, not entirely sure what's happening.  It might help to know what type of router you have.  I know the new linksys routers have a new security feature by the name of SES or something of the sort.  Make sure that is disabled and that DHCP is enabled.  Also make sure a firewall on the router isn't blocking it.  It might help to have screenshots of your router settings to better evaluate what's happening.
