      CANíT CONNECT Xbox TO INTERNET

      Hi
      I have little or no clue about IT etc so TRY to keep things simple!!!

      My son has an Xbox 360 and a wireless network adapter. I have an old (4-5year) wireless router.

      I am having real difficulty. It doesnít automatically see my router, does anybody have any suggestions?

      Would this be the new wireless 'N' xbox adapter? if so apparently some people are having to plug the xbox into the router with the standard network cable, and sign in to xbox live, fingers crossed it will say there is an update for the adapter, accept install/download, hey presto it might just work, be warned the wireless adapter will not work if the network cable is plugged in as well, so the rumors go.

      Yes it is the wireless 'N' Xbox adapter.

      When I connect the Ethernet cable from the router to the Xbox (wireless 'N' Xbox adapter disconnected), it does not recognise my router. I have manually entered the IP address, Sub Mask, Gateway and DNS numbers.

      Now it says I need to disable a Mac filter on my router. What does that mean and how do I do it? My router is Netgear and I canít find it in my programs or device manager.
