The WPA key is found in your wireless router. This is the passcode for your wireless to get on to the network.

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.

My son can't connect to x box live, it keeps asking for the wpa key, what is this and where do I get it from?


Your WPA key is simply put, the password that protects your internet. (Wi-Fi Protected Access). I'm assuming you have a wireless internet and that is how your son is connecting to Xbox Live? (Unless he is mistakenly connecting to another wireless network other than your own.)
Someone in your household should know what the WPA key is, because it was the password set to protect your internet. (Most likely done so on a PC or laptop.)
So here are my suggestions:
1. Make sure your son is connecting to the right wirless network on his Xbox. You can do this by going to Settings --> System Settings --> Network Settings --> Configure Network --> Clicking A once you get to that Menu, and then scanning for Networks. Chances are you will get a few results. In order to connect to Xbox Live, you have to chose your wireless network.
2. If no one in your household knows the WPA key, I would suggest contacting who ever set up your internet, or another option would be to connect to Xbox Live directly, using the modem cable. (You would have gotten this when you originally bought the Xbox.) This can get pretty complicated however, so I would suggest trying to figure out the WPA key.

I hope I was of some help, feel free to contact me if you're still confused.

Need wpa key for xbox live


WPA key is your Wireless router key for internet access.
To connect your console to wireless internet and go to Xbox Live you must enter WPA key for your wireless router.

It`s a same key than you use to connect your Notebook, cellular phone, etc. to your home network.

My wireless has a WPA key and Abox is asking


  1. Plug in the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter to one of the USB ports on the back of your Xbox 360.
  2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and navigate to "My Xbox" and then "System Settings."
  3. Go to "Network Settings" and then "Configure Network."
  4. Select the appropriate settings for the wireless network you will be connecting to on the "Basic Settings" tab.
  5. Enter the name of the SSID of the wireless network you will be connecting to. If the SSID is not broadcast, select "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter in the SSID of the network manually.
  6. Enter in the wireless security key (WEP or WPA) so that your Xbox 360 can access the network.
  7. Select "Test Xbox Live Connection" back on the "Network Settings" screen to verify that your Xbox 360 is now connected to the wireless network and ready for use.
Should work for either WEP or WPA

Hi, WPA is Wi-FI Protected Access, this is an encryption used to secure your network, it basically is a key that your router has, your xbox360 will need to know this key for you to be able to access online play via your router.

It may ask for your network name and key make sure you input both of these..

Hope this helps

Wireless


WPA keys are configured into the wireless router by the owner. If you do not remember your WPA key you need to access your wireless router's configuration to retrieve it. An alternative possibly could be to retrieve it from one of your other wireless devices (like a laptop) that is already connected to the router. if it will display the value.
