Alrighty, I've ran into a bit of a snag with the complications of old against new. Now I know the old wireless networking device M$ previously released with the original Xbox (MN-740) is capable of working with the 360. Most of the people I've came across said they had no troubles with it connecting wireless to a network. Basically, plug n' play. Anyway, this isn't my situation. After numerous trials, I've come to determine I've got a problem (duh, why would I post). I'm running through a modem/(Linksys WRTG54))router setup, 802.11 b/g. The 360, when connected with the MN-740, sees it connected as a hard-line, and not wireless, as it uses the Ethernet port and not a USB as the newer models do. Therefore, it is also obvious that the IP, when set to automatically detect, pumps out a real IP, and not the router IP given off. Now, here comes the problem. I've tried both auto detect and static to which it is set at both a 192.168.1.1XX (Linksys default), and what the laptop I use runs (rather different local IP). I've double checked through the router settings to make sure the MAC could be pushed through, and I made sure my port forwarding I use for Borderlands on the PC wasn't causing a log jam. It wasn't, so now I'm here. Is there something I'm missing, or do I just have my numbers flipped flopped somewhere I'm not seeing? Might help to know I don't have the set-up disc, but shouldn't matter as the 360 doesn't recognize the disc. I would try setting it up via an original Xbox, but I have an E21, and a softmod that doesn't run the M$ Dash at all.

You need to configure the wireless adapter to connect to your wireless network. To do that you need to connect it to an original Xbox, or reflash it with the D-Link DGL-3420 firmware and configure it from your PC.
