The Xbox 360 does NOT have an "internal" network adapter, you'll have to purchase one separately (I believe they retail for around $99) in order to connect wirelessly.

If you DO NOT purchase the wireless network adapter then you'll be forced to connect with an Ethernet cable.

My son just bought an xbox 360 pro yesterday and hardwiring it is a little inconvenient. we have a netgear router and adapter on one of our computers...could we just use it instead of buying the xbox...


If your son has a laptop/PC that is near to his 360 you can just use the Ethernet cable supplied and plug it into the Xbox and Laptop/PC and that will work

Xbox live connection keeps crashing.


Hi,

problems usually happen, when the signal strength drops.
I,d suggest hard-wiring the 360 to the PC or router, for optimal performance.

Thankyou for using fixya.

This error is related to the update of the xbox360 website or a router problem.
Try disable all encryption and MAC filtering on the router and see if you can connect unprotected.

Xbox disconnecting


Log into the router and make sure that you have not limited the number of wireless connections allowed to access the internet. You also want to adjust your antivirus/firewall settings so that all devices in your house are 'trusted'.

Xbox 360 wireless connection


If you already have wireless router you will need something like this:

Or you can always buy a third party wireless device that is capable with Xbox 350.
