    I think i have the same problem, i have an xbox live card but my ethernet internet connection cord that came with the xbox 360 isn't long enough to reach my router in the other room. I want to get a wireless router but i'm not sure what to get or what to do. I was also wondering, can i just get a longer internet connection cable that will fit my router and xbox 360? but then i read a review saying: You cannot connect to Xbox LIVE by using a wireless connection. The test in Network Settings verifies that the wireless adapter that is connected to your console is connected to a wireless network.

    What does this mean???

If your router is protected by password you need to configure it but the only equipment you need is the router, the adapter and a provider.

How to wirelessly hook up xbox live GOLD


wirelessly hooking up xbox live is an easy, simple process; tech savy or not. first, you will need a wireless networking adapter, which range from 80 to 100$ USD. bestbuy or walmart .com are examples of retailers of such product.

hook up the the adpater into the back of the xbox 360.

if you do not have a wireless router that is currently serving no purpose, you will need.
bestbuy and walmart are once again ideal retailers, and i would suggest a Linksys brand router, hook that up and configure to your router.

no more purchases, except for a xbox membership of course.

turn on the xbox with the Wireless networking adapter plugged in and tap the center "Big X" button, scroll right twice and find "network setting" from there, configure network, and then scan for networks...

if you were successful in hooking up the router, you will find your router as an option to connect to, you may or may not have a specified sercurity.
if you do, you will be required to enter the password you chose.


you should now be connected to xbox live...

XBOX 360 wireless adapter,problems with passing test!!


Ok i think we have the same problem. You can call this post a same problem / solution post. Try reseting your whole computer and router by simply unpluging everything. It should work temporarily(2 days). The reason your having this problem is because of certain settings on your router which kick in after a few days of reseting thats why it will assign an ip address temporarily.comment when you have tried this. Maybe we can help each other.

Wireless adpater red!


try using WEP encryption, especially if you use a G router, as thid is easier for the adapter to work with then WPA. also make sure that you have the ports open for xbox Live, i think its ports 88 and 3074

"wireless network not connected"???


Enter your IP address? If not go to http://whatismyip.com/ and enter that manually into your internet settings, on the last tab on the right of the dashboard. If the wireless adapter isn't reading the signal then you might have to reposition your router so it receives the signal.

Ok, first call microsoft so they can fix your account.
Then, re-connect your wireless adapter to your 360. Once that is done, reconnect to your router. If that fails, call the manufacturer for help.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
