Xbox 360 to Linksys wireless modem...

How do I setup my son's Xbox 360 to a Linksys wireless modem? My son is driving me nuts. We have the Xbox adapter(?) on the back of the unit and it still isn't recognizing it...

Thank you for any help you can send me.

    Thanks for trying, but I still am not able to connect to the network. How can I add the XBOX 360 to my chain of devices on my Linksys router.

OK I think the easiest way to connect the xbox to the linksys, is if you configure your XBOX to have a static IP address, because the xbox will not have to pick an IP address every time you connect to the internet using the Linksys router and will not have conflicts with other PCs on your house, if you have any. What the linksys does is to convert your Public IP addres into a Private IP address, so example if your ISP gave you an IP address of: 209.235.205.30 that is your IP address for you, then the Linksys converts that number (NAT) into a private IP address so it can be share with many computer inside your house using a single Public IP address. The Linksys always transform it into 192.168.1.?=any number between 1-256 thats the defaults IP address from the manufacturer but you can change it if you want. Ok enough info about NAT or IP jeje.

Where going to use the default IP addres for an easier setup.

First: On your XBOX 360 dashboard go to SYSTEM, then Network Settings, then Edit Settings, then choose the option manual, here put the IP address= 192.168.1.33 (if 33 doesn't work use another numer like 20 or 45 just pick a number between 2 and 250) ; Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 ; Gateway = 192.168.1.1; DNS options put Automatic. And see if it connects. If it doesn't work just post it here, any problem that you have.

    Just follow the instructions and the part that explains Network settings of the xbox, you can use their example so it works exactly as explained.

    Hope it helps.

I am trying to get xbox live in my sons room, but my modem and router are located in the living room.it is wireless but i have no clue how this all works


The Xbox 360 does not have a wireless adapter built in. You must connect it through a CAT 5/5e/6 Ethernet cable, or purchase one of the Xbox Wireless Network adapters.

Why does my xbox lag i got wireless router and modem but it started lagging 3 months ago for no apparent reason, no computer just laptop and that works fine upstairs in the same room as x box


There could be a trojan in one of the pc's that is leaking into the xbox making it run bad. Believe it or not, it was happening to our xbox. 3 pc's on one modem wireless, all were fine but one and the xbox 360 was direct into the modem via ethernet. We'd take my sons pc off line and the xbox would work great. Put the pc back online (connected to wireless) and the connection on xbox was back to awful.

Check and see if that's the problem.

I just subscribed to wireless internet, what does


IF you have a wireless modem/router and yous wish to hook up your xbox 360 into it, you need to purchase a wireless networking adapter for the Xbox 360 because the Xbox does not come with a built in wireless card. Once you have that accessory you can configure the wireless network in your console.

I have s linksys wireless attached to our modem. we are losing the conection after about a 1.5 minutes. I also have the Linksys tranmitter in the basement where he plays. My son is. Does this sound like...


Hi,
If your son is playing wirelessly, could be too far away from the router,with too many walls for the signal to go through, also there could be other electrical goods interfering with the signal, would it be possible to either move the console closer to the router or to run a long ethernet cable from the router to the console,If you still lose connection it will be down to band width, so you may not be able to run any other laptops or game consoles at the same time, so if you want to use the computer, he will have to read a book ; )

Wpa key on modem


you need to log in to the modem itself. Type the following in your internet explorer bar:

linksys: 192.168.1.1

dlink: 192.168.0.1

any other models, you need to look at the instruction manual to find the correct address. Once in the setup menu, look for wireless settings.

go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address? Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

Xbox 360 setup


it way be that your modem and/or router does not recognize the ethernet cord. the contacts on either the cord or port might be fried. try plugging the xbox cord into the laptop port if the laptop is hooked up by cord or try using a wireless adapter for your xbox if the wireless seems to work fine with your laptop.
