Question about Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 (SKWIFIX360)

Open Question

Randomly my xbox live connection to my router started decreasing in strength to near nothing. Ive reset my router several times to no avail. The connection is still quite bad and i cant even have a clear conversation if im in a party with someone, nor get my netflix to work. This has never happened before. Should i try connecting my xbox directly to my router to reset things (if thats even an option)?

Have you tried testing the connection with your xbox (system settings/network settings). where does it fail? Also make sure your router is set up to hand out IP addresses

SOURCE: router problems when using xbox live

This sounds like a problem i ran into a few years back with a ps2.

This is not a machine related problem this is a signal strength problem. Most likely you have too much cord in between the router and the X box try shortening that cord as much as possible.

If this doesnt work try calling 1-800-4MY-XBOX

they will run a few tests with you and confirm my diagnosis.

you might be forced to run Xbox lve directly off your modem in an extremem situation or consider upgrading your internet signal or router

SOURCE: I cannot connect to xbox live because my xbox360 cannot find my network

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

I have just got in broadband but my xbox aint picking up my wireless signal upstairs,ive got the wireless adapter for the xbox,its picking up a few neighbours network connections,surely my xbox should be...


It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

My x box 360 keeps freezing ans saying you are disconnected from xbox live, what do i do ?


If your screen freezes when playing on Xbox LIVE, the problem may be related to your Internet connection. A weak wireless signal can cause poor Xbox LIVE performance. If you are using wireless connection:
1. Go to My Xbox and select System Setttings. 2. Select Network Settings. 3. Select Wired Connection or the name of your wireless network. 4. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If your wireless signal is only one or two bars, try improving your signal strength by following the suggestions below.
  • Move your router or gateway off the floor and away from walls and metal objects such as metal file cabinets).
  • Minimize obstructions along a straight-line path between your Xbox and your wireless router or gateway.
  • Shorten the distance between your console and your wireless router or gateway. Ideally, your network hardware should be near the center of your home.
  • Change the position of the antenna on your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (external adapter only).
  • Turn off wireless devices. If your router uses the 2.4 GHz band, try turning off wireless devices, such as 2.4 GHz cordless telephones and Bluetooth devices.
  • Try changing your wireless channel. Wireless routers and gateways can broadcast on different channels and one channel might be clearer than another. See your hardware documentation for help changing wireless channels.
  • Add a wireless repeater to extend your wireless network range. You can boost your signal strength by placing a wireless repeater halfway between your router or gateway and your console.
  • Add an Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter.
  • Switch wireless signal bands. If you have a dual-band router and an external wireless adapter, try switching the router to a wireless protocol that transmits on the 5 GHz band (wireless protocol A or N). Please see your hardware documentation for help with changing the wireless protocol.
  • Switch to a cable.

My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing


things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to www.xbox.com and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there

Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 can't connect to xbox live and cant obtain IP address


if its having trouble obtaining ip address it sounds liek you need to manually config the connection on the xbox by typing in the name and any wep key and than going into your router and making sure it has multiple ip's available for the xbox for my xbox I had to enter the name of the connection because it was a weak signal despite the proximity I changed it to connect to linksys which was my router name at the time and never had another problem I hope this info helps if nothing I suggested works it may be a problem with your adapter just not having the signal strength if you have had it connected via wire in past and know the router will accept other computers than I would have to say this is your problem


Hope I helped
Please leave feedback
Thanks

I cannot connect to xbox live. I've called numerous times to microsoft with no results. I've called my router company to open gaming ports, which i did and still nothing. Ive gotten a new xbox, and it...


if you are using a router then you will have to set the connection up your main line to allow the connection to be made. if you are direct connecting with the modem to the xbox and its still not connecting then the xbox live server is down. I used to run into not connecting to xbox live alot more through using my router because my router was old and good gaming on live requires a good gaming router. check to see if your computer is acknowlledging your router, And if it is then, Make sure your router is up to date. sounds like a router issue. post back with any more help if its needed :-)

Xbox live problem


If you cannot connect using the wireless because the signal strength is too low, you can connect the Xbox using a LAN cable to the router. You might need someone to install the LAN cable for you depending upon how you can locate neatly.
