I want to connect to a xbox 360 live but it asks me for a ssid a wpa and wep number where do i get those numbers from


SSID, WPA and WEP are things used to identify and access an wireless network/router.

SSID is the name of the wireless network you want to connect to.
WPA and WEP are forms of encryption/security for the wireless network. Basically it's the password to get onto the wireless network.

Most routers broadcast the SSID information, so you should be able to select it from a list on your Xbox (Scan for Networks option). If not you can also manually enter it.

The WPA/WEP you'll have to know and enter manually. If you forgot it, you can find it in your router's settings. Here's a guide to finding/accessing the password; all you need is access to a computer that is already on the wireless network.

And just in case, here's an official guide from Microsoft for troubleshooting wireless network problems.

Hope you get it sorted out!
(Personal opinion: Wireless is a pain; just use an wired ethernet connection)

How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.
    2. Enter your wireless network password and select Done.
    3. The console will automatically try connecting to Xbox LIVE. If you get an error message, go to the following webpage for help: support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx)

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article: 977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  6. Select Scan for Networks.
  7. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article: 909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

I cant find the wap key to connect to xbox live i ahve a sky wireless router help!!!!


Greetings Joecosens,

Fortunately, the WEP key can be located on the bottom, or backside of the router. If you have changed your router from factory settings, your WEP key is whatever you have changed it to. But if you have not changed it, then it should be on your router. The WEP key is a combination of letters and numbers. If further assistance is needed, please contact me directly. Thank you for using FIxYa! =) Please rate. Kindest regards.

We are being driven crazy. We have XBox Live using an N Adapter using WEP security ( DO not have WPA on our Wireless Router or whatever it is called!) Anyway we have excellent wireless connectivity and no...


When it fails to connect, is it failing to connect to xbox live or failing to connect to your wireless network?

You could try changing the wireless channel on your router, A different wireless channel might offer a more stable signal. Youd be suprised how many devices can interfere with a wireless network.

Also check that upnp is enabled on your router.

If you let me know what make and model router your using i can post instructions on how to do this.

Connecting to x box live


Yes. You can go into the network settings on your Xbox once it is plugged in and set it up easily. It should recognize your network on it's own, and you just have to tell it to choose it. If you have any WEP security on your wireless network, you will have to enter the code into the wireless network settings on your Xbox.

Cant get xbox live connected


You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Ip address failed


I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Ip address for xbox live


ok, firstly i hate these problems.
first things first, switch your hub off (leave for 2 mins) switch back on, this may refresh the ip address, also switch your xbox off.. then try agian.
Get back to me and let me know what happens from here.

oh also are you connecting your xbox to the pc? or directly to your broadband hub? if you can connect it directly to your hub, this should solve any problems

Xbox LIVE


I think the encryption may not be set up on your router or your router isn't broadcasting it's signal. Have you checked the connection of the wireless adapter, I mean that it's plugged in correctly? Not sure what type of encryption it uses but check the manual or box adapter came in and then log onto your router by accessing it via ip address of router in IE address bar. Then check to see if it has the relevant encryption set up. It will either be WEP or WPA or Open. Also make sure the router is set to "broadcast" it's signal.
