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.

You need to buy a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander to boost the signal
  • Move your wireless router to a central location in your network, keeping in mind that the router should be at waist level at the very least, not on the ground.

  • Plug in the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander in the room where your wireless router is. You'll move the range expander later, but for setup purposes, it should be in the same location as your wireless router.
  • Press the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander's "Auto Configuration" button for five seconds, which will allow the range expander to detect your wireless network and configure itself with the appropriate settings.
  • Unplug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander and relocate it to a location closer to the Xbox 360.
  • Ensure that the antenna for the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander is pointing upward, and keep in mind that the higher the range expander is placed, the better performance you will get out of it.
  • Plug the Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander back in, and your wireless network should have a much greater range, ensuring that your Xbox 360 is able to maintain a good connection to the network.

    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.

    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.

    Xbox 360


    1. First, turn your Router off and wait for a couple of minutes (unplug power from the wall)
    2. Turn off your modem (unplug power from the wall)
    Reboot both the devices and they will obtain a new IP address.

    Let me know.

    Can't pick up wireless internet through router


    You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.

    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.
