Xbox 360 Wireless Adaptor problem


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

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 cant use xbox live without plugging into router which im unable to do. Is there another solution

You can do it wirelessly. You need a wireless router and if you have an older model Xbox(The newer models have the wireless adaptor built in) you need to by the wireless adaptor. Found a Liknsys Cisco wireless N-300 router refurbished on Tiger Direct for under $30. I bought one there excellent same one at Walmart between $60 and $90. The Adaptor for the 360 is $79.99 to $99.99 and you can get those online or at Walmart and Gamestop.
