Xbox 360 Wireless Adaptor problem

Hi

I've bought the Xbox wireless adaptor like a good boy but IT WON'T WORK!

My Wii and PC work fine and my Xbox360 works online if I take it upstairs and connect it to the router by ethernet.

But my wireless adaptor just gives me the solid-red-light-finger!

I've set a static IP for my Xbox that should be fine, and entered the router IP address as gateway and DNS server, plus correct subnet and all that.

My main concern is that the WEP/SSID tab on the screen is greyed out and inaccessible... And also, if I select Restore to Default, the Test Connection option screen comes over...WTF?

So, in short, is there a solution or is something busted?

I look forward to your wisdom

Andy

I just bought a Belkin wireless router for my internet to connect with my microsoft xbox 360 wireless adapter. the light turns on the adapter but it is a amber color and not red or green like always...


I've never heard of a Wireless Adapter turning amber or orange? This can be a simple light problem inside your Xbox 360. If it were fixed, the highest possibility is that color should be red. If so, this means the connection is not strong enough to your modem, and adapter. You will have move your Xbox 360 console closer to your wireless modem for the connection to be the best.

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

Cannot connct xbox 360 wireless adaptor


Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

You cannot use the netgear wi-fi adapter as the xbox 360 will not be able to detect it. I suggest buying the wi-fi adapter specifically manufactured for the xbox360
