      Let me know how you get on, especially if the wireless settings are "greyed out", or if you don't get an Open NAT status.

      Re: Help a Noob set up Xbox Live to Sky Broadband wirelessly with the new sagem route

      Hi,

      I am also having problems setting up my XBOX360 wireless connection to my Sky Sagem modem.


      I was able to get thought these steps:

      1) Plug wireless adapter into rear usb port on xbox.
      2) Switch xbox on and check that light is red on adapter.
      3) Go to System blade of dashboard.
      4) Select Network settings.
      5) Select Edit settings.
      6) Press down twice to highlight Wireless settings.
      7) Press A. Your Xbox will now scan for wireless networks.
      8) Select your network and press A. En ter your WPA security code.
      9) You should be ale to connect now.

      ...but the test fails at the 'Wireless Network'; stage

      I'm a bit confused as the xbox360 is able to pick up my network with a strong signal but then is unable to connect...

      any ideas??

      thanks

      Make sure you are entering your WPA key EXACTLY as it appears, if you haven't changed it then it should be all caps and all letters (no numbers).
      If that doesn't work, enter your router settings and disable security for a minute and try again, if that connects then you can enable security and try the steps again, it should then work.

      EDIT: Thinking about it, it may well be MAC address filtering that is enabled in your router settings.

      Hi LloydE, firstly goto the system blade of the dashboard and select network settings and then restore to defaults.
      Then start again and if the wireless settings are still greyed out, and youv'e made sure that the light on the adapter is red, then you have a faulty adapter.
      There were quite a lot of these going around, just take it back to the shop and exchange it.
