WZR-HP-G300NH Cant connect XBox 360
« on: June 20, 2009, 07:55:02 am »
   I have searched the internet and i did find that idea to set a static ip address but i dont even get a connection to the router. Now i have one N connection from my tower and two G connections. My laptop works fine but not the xbox. Now i have pulled out my trusty WHR-G542 to see if my xbox wireless card was dead but it connected fine. Once again my WHR-G54S pulled through for me. Now i do have comcast internet and i had a dhcp issue and thought maybe it could be the modem (arris TM602g/ct) or the router is defective or im doing something wrong. usually its me doing something wrong lol. any help would be appreciated my current solution is a 50foot cable.

Try setting it to "G" mode and tell me if it works.  Also I would troubleshoot for interference (change the wireless channel)

   I was not aware that there was a way to set the router just to Wireless G? I looked in the manual but i did not read anything of that sort. Am i missing something?

What type of device do you have the Xbox using? It doesn't have wireless built-in, so I'm assuming you are using a wireless bridge?

My guess is that you have setup the router for a specific type of WPA encryption and the adapter doesn't support it.†

Sign into the web interface and click on wireless config.  Then click on the sub category "basic 11 n/g/b" and switch 300 mbps mode to 20 mhz

>It says that XBOX wireless adapter cannot connect to WZR-HP-G300NH via wireless and Buff has not decided yet to support XBOX wireless adapter.

>You can ask to Buff support directly.

I have the exact same problem. I am waiting for Buffalo's tech support to answer if there will be a fix at some point.

If someone has already solved this problem, then please share the information.

Well, I got my answer from the Buffalo tech support and they just said that there is nothing wrong with it and said: "If there is encryption on the router, turning it off, making sure that aoss is turned off and then trying to connect. Most times its an encryption level that is not allowing connection, and nothing else."

My AOSS is off and I have tried it with no security, WEP, WPA and WPA2 and with both TKIP and AES. Am I missing something here?

The Xbox can find the router, it just can't get an IP address or connect to it.

try changing the channel you are using. I had trouble getting my google phone to connect untill I changed the chanel to a lower channel somthing in the 10 - 11 range.

Also I'm not sure if the xbox supports the encryption you are using you might try using wep and working your way up to wpa and wpa2.

Good news! Looks like Xbox has an new update this week that adds WPA2 support for the Wireless Network Adapter!

Tried it and the Xbox can actually scan for the router AND sign in to Live!

It's about time, M$!!!! Now to wait for the Wireless N adapter...
