Xbox 360 and the WRT54G

    Hello everyone,

    I'm hoping a guru of sorts can assist me. I have an Xbox360 with a Logitech wireless adapter to see my Linksys WRT54G router. In the past I was able to connect my laptop to the 360 and I was able to connect to Xbox Live. NOW, It seems I can't do anything. I've tried resetting the router, nothing, I've tried changing this setting and that setting and nothing.. I finally hard wired my 360 to my surfboard modem and it got onto Xbox Live.. which leads me to believe its the router. Does anyone have any helpful hints for me????? I'd like to get back to playing online AND having the 360 'see' my laptop.

    Thanks so much for any help...

    So now you need to determine if its the wireless adapter or the routers wireless, what have you done to try to figure out which it may be?

    Well.... when I boot the xbox up, the green light on the logitech device, connected to the 360... blinks several times... and the xbox says "So and so signed in"... But then I go to xbox live it says it fails the MTU test.... I just wised I knew more about routers and those of the like... Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated....

    No worries, I am sure there is a way to log into your wireless adapter and check its settings. So you need to at this point see if you can do that and see what it sees, if not log into your router and see if you can see what dhcp ip's were handed out. Through process of elimnination you can determine what ip you xbox is. See if you can ping your xbox from your computer. See if you can gather this info, if you need help logging into your router just ask, we can move forward from here.

    Hey thanks for the response.... but you'd been better off 'writing' in Chinese... I don't have a clue how to do what you've suggested... I thought about hard wiring (ethernet) my 360 to my router.... Not sure how to check the wireless adapter... Also, back in the day when I first got the wireless Logitech for the 360... I would see the Xbox on my laptop.... not anymore... COuld I have a setting wrong on the router???? A WPA verses a WEP... something changed???? I did a reset on the router and I think that reset everything.... I still can't get the 360 to connect?????? Man, I sure do appreciate this help!!!!

    To funny, ok your hunch is where i am going, something is not setup right. If you hard reset the router it would have erased everything that was there, if the logitech adapter is dependant on the settings of the router yes it would break. I dont have time this morning to get into a step by step guide on how to do this but if you send me a PM (private message), you can do that by clicking on my username, i will get a reminder in my inbox at home and ill put something together for you to try.

    Hey, 'ifican'... I was able to bypass the Logitech wireless adapter and by using a long ethernet cable, I plugged that directly into the router a voila... I got onto Xbox Live... So, now I'm wondering if I can get my laptop to 'see' the 360?????

    Thanks,

    Laptop/Router and Xbox

    Hello again...

    I', still trying to figure out why my laptop won't see my Xbox 360... I can get out to Xbox Live and play there, which makes me believe its NOT the router, but an issue with Windows Media Player/Center... If I can get out to do the XB Live, it shouldn't be the router... Can anyone confirm or deny this????

    Thanks,
