Try using WEP encryption, especially if you use a G router, as thid is easier for the adapter to work with then WPA. also make sure that you have the ports open for xbox Live, i think its ports 88 and 3074

Hi. You just need to configure your adapter. It is not broken, it just needs to be set up properly. For information on how to do this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908877

How to wirelessly hook up xbox live GOLD


wirelessly hooking up xbox live is an easy, simple process; tech savy or not. first, you will need a wireless networking adapter, which range from 80 to 100$ USD. bestbuy or walmart .com are examples of retailers of such product.

hook up the the adpater into the back of the xbox 360.

if you do not have a wireless router that is currently serving no purpose, you will need.
bestbuy and walmart are once again ideal retailers, and i would suggest a Linksys brand router, hook that up and configure to your router.

no more purchases, except for a xbox membership of course.

turn on the xbox with the Wireless networking adapter plugged in and tap the center "Big X" button, scroll right twice and find "network setting" from there, configure network, and then scan for networks...

if you were successful in hooking up the router, you will find your router as an option to connect to, you may or may not have a specified sercurity.
if you do, you will be required to enter the password you chose.


you should now be connected to xbox live...

How can i get xbox live wirless working after buying the adapter. I have bought the xbox wirless adapter and i am having trouble getting wirless.


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!

I cant connect to xbox live


The red meant it was ready for configuration. If there is no light it means it is not receiving power. Try plugging it in again, or plugging it in to a front USB slot. If it still doesn't work your adapter has a defect and should be replaced.

All i need is a wireless router and an adapter right?


If your router is protected by password you need to configure it but the only equipment you need is the router, the adapter and a provider.

"wireless network not connected"???


Enter your IP address? If not go to http://whatismyip.com/ and enter that manually into your internet settings, on the last tab on the right of the dashboard. If the wireless adapter isn't reading the signal then you might have to reposition your router so it receives the signal.
