I set the wep code in my basestation, but I cannot figure out how to setup the xbox.
I called xbox support and they said since it was not an xbox adapter, they didn't know how to help.
On my xbox settings the adapter shows up as a wired network, but it is actually wireless.

Re: wireless security to xbox
Assuming you mean xbox360, there should be a seperate menu for wireless connections in the network settings, as when it finds the signal it then asks for the keycode security number, but as far as i know the old xbox doesnt support wireless.

the WEP code was set either by you during the setup of the wireless modem, or by the manufacturer. If you set the code and cannot remember it, try resetting the modem back to its factory defaults, the manual for the modem will tell you how to do this. If you no longer have the manual, go to the netgear website and download a manual through the support portal.. Don't be tempted to leave wep turned off, without it, anyone can access your network and your internet connection, steal your identity, bank details etc or simply use up your download limits..
Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.
I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.
