I am wondering if there is a way to hook my linksys router up to another router that will pick up the signal so that an xbox360 can plug an ethernet cord directly into the back of it. We tried two different wireless cards for the xbox, and they do not work, but the port works fine. So, is there a way to link two routers without running wires so that the xbox can run off that signal?

suggestion try using mixed mode wireless b/g this will allow the wireless g router to see the wireless n adapter, it will not have high speed mimo technology enabled but it will fucntion as a wireless g adpater, good luck with it. having a wilress n router is required to pair their the wilress n adapter, otehrwise no speed benafit or mimo technology, i hope this helps you a bit. their was very little to work with, but i think we have it.
if you plug the computer into the usb port a box will come up and you register it as for the adapter get the one for the xbox plug it in and go to the dashboard then console setting then xbox live connection then test connection and if it doesnt work try the linksys one or the wired one.
i had this exact problem. the reason mine wasn't working was because the security settings for my wireless router were set on wp2a and the xbox 360 can't pick this up. change your wireless router security to wpa and you should be fine...after i did this it saw my network and i was fine
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router
You need to have a router in the middle. You cannot hook the computer and the 360 up directly to each other. You plug the 360 into the router and also the PC into the router. Then you run the network tests on teh 360. To get the 360 to play any files (music/movies) on your computer, open Windows Media Player and in options go to teh sharing tab and add to library.
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.
I have the same router (WRT300N) and this is what I did. I don't know if it will work for more than one Xbox360.
- Go to the Setting of the router.
- Applications & Gaming
. Enable the DMZ
. Choice the Mac Adress under the Destination.
. If you don't know the Mac Adress of your Xbox360 click on the tab: DHCP CLIENT TABLE
.Now from there choice your Xbox360 ( the Xbox360 won't have a Client Name but hopefully you only have your Xbox360 and your computer)
and now save your setting and restart your Xbox360 and there you go NAT open. This also help if you get any kind of LAG while someone is on the computer using the internet, your Xbox360 will be high priorty to the router.
HOPE THAT HELP
