If you have a Mac, you will have to add the dollar sign $ before you type the key $1234567acf something like. but it is best if you use WPA instead. more secure and easier to use for mode Mac and Windows XP / Vista

Hi,

This is the issue with the Wireless configuraion. WEP key you entered is incorrect.
You need to login to Wireless configuration page ie., Router page and check the WEP key and enter the same and on laptop and try again. It will solve your problem.

Note: To perform this step, internet cables should be connected to both router and Laptop.


Thank you

How do i set up the wireless connection for the xbox360. i need a WEP key or WPA passphrase


The WEP or WPA key for your local wireless router would be the same as the one you enter into your Xbox. If you don't know that, you should reset it to something you know on the router.

My xbox360 scans and finds router but it will not connect. what is the problem?


Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365.
Also you will need to open the ports on the router.
For WII port numbers are ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443.
For XBOX port numbers are ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
For Play station port numbers are ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.




X-BOX

On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Cant grt xbox360 wireless adapter conected to wireless router on pc down stairs


I assume the wireless router is configured correctly and the PC can connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
The problem could be that the signal is too weak upstairs for the XBox especially if you have a concrete floor between the XBox and the wireless router. Try moving the wireless router around to increase signal strength to the CBox.
The other problem could be the XBox is not configured correctly.
Follow these instructions to configure the XBox.
  1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
  3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
  4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
  5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
  6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

You wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

Does not connect to x box


You'll need to access your routers configuration page through http://192.168.1.1 and either turn off wireless security or get your WEP key and enter it into your 360.

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router
