Try another usb port, preferably usb 2.0 port. Sometimes ports will not recognize devices. With the cd in the drive, it should automatically install. Then you should restart and start using your wireless adapter.

Light is turning red not green and sometimes dosent come on when xboox is turned on


the adapter only comes on usually when the xbox is turned on and booting itself up. try restarting the xbox over and over again and replugging in the adapter.If the light is red that meanes its on and running but cannot connect to your router or modem etc. if this is happening reconfig your connection so it recognizes your router.IMPORTANT: if you have security on your router you must enter everything in before you can connect. If your adapter still doesnt read your router you must be out of range or the router is not putting out a signal.

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!

Hope this tip helps :).

Wireless routers, what are they for?


the wireless router is the access point where the signal is produced, this gets hooked to your cable/dsl modem to share the internet connection wirelessly, your laptop needs a little wireless card to be able to connect to that router, these are cheap and come in a variety of different types, the simplest is to go to Best Buy and pickup a USB wireless adapter and plug it in and put in the cd that comes with it and install it and then Windows should take care of the rest as long as your router is on and there is no password applied.

I am a total beginner trying to get his son's laptop to work. Cant connect to internet. Dont even have wireless as an option when I go to Network settings. Thanks in advance for your help...


To get wireless you will need the following, a wireless adapter built into the computer or an external wireless adapter running on USB. Then you need to have the drivers for the wireless device installed which you will have to do if the system did not come pre-installed with wireless. Even for a beginner this is pretty straight forward and instructions come with the device. Next, you will need to have a wireless router and this will need to be configured. These are usually configured through a web interface, but the software that came with the router should also provide a wizard. Finally the frequency and channels the devices use have to match, this will be a letter such as A,B, or G. The further the letter is in the alphabet the better your range and speed, G is better then A, etc. When everything seems to be working, you can setup WEP. This is so other people can't steal your wireless and it is configured by putting in the address of the router into your web browser, usually 192.168.1.1 from a wired machine. Setup a password and write down the hex value it creates, something like f45e9645, etc. Then re-connect to the wireless using the operating system. When it asks you for the key put in the value you wrote down. Voila!! Safe secure wireless.

Learn to connect wireless usb adapter


Hello raab2011,

On the wireless usb, you connect it to a USB port on the back or side of your computer normally. What kind of laptop do you have? When you do this you need to follow the wireless adapter instruction manual and have the CD in your laptop.

1). Put CD in your laptop
2). The hardware wizard comes up
3). It will step you through when to plug in your adapter.
4). Follow the steps on the screen to install it.

If you have any questions. Feel free to respond to this.
