Hey there

wireless D Link router (DI-524) and the lack of connection to an xbox 360..

I called the Microsoft tech last night...but it seems they know nothing...they keep suggesting that I have a Secured signal and i need the WPA...i dont have a secured signal...its 100% UNSecured...

the xbox it self finds the signal of the wireless...but when i run the IP test it fails on the second step...which is "wireless connection"

When i go to the "network settings" window I can see that there isnt an IP address and all other feilds are empty...EXCEPT the bottom area reguarding the 802.11g

anyways...any help / knowledge would be greatly appreciated..I need help here

Hi Evan, welcome to GZ, to help I think you need to supply more information, like what broadband connection you have and is it providing DHCP service, also what settings the Wireless side of hte 524 is set to.
