      Instant Failure To Connect 360 to Black Router

      Hi everyone.

      I have just moved over to Sky, from a company called Freeola. I used to be able to connect easily via wireless from my BT Voyager router to my 360. However now that Sky demand I use this black router, I cant seem to pair them up.

      I get to the test connect screen on the 360, and asoon as it starts the test, it fails instantly.

      I have checked the password countless times, factory restored the router, changed the wireless settings. I just dont know what to do, as my 360 is upstairs and my router is downstairs, and I am limited to plug sockets so I cant even use homeplugs.

      Anyone else had this issue, or able to help me out?

      Thanks

      Kevin

      Are you entering the network key all in capitals letters?

      This.

      Additionally can you try moving the router closer to the 360 or vice versa and see if it is a wireless range issue.

      Firstly, are you using Wireless?
      If so use Ethernet cable (if possible)
