Hi skidzy,yep i'm trying to setup xbox live for him , we've tried seperate microsoft adapters and neither of them worked(adapters failed)so both had to be sent back.I was wondering if the livebox would still work using the homeplugs or would i have to do as you have done and get another router to work with the livebox.Will the two "speak" to eachother do you think?
I believe if not a wired connection directly to the router you have to use the Microsoft wireless adaptor-i dont think you can use the home plugs.
Can you give me a bit more info please.
Can the xbox see the router ? If so,at what stage does it fail ?
We had a faulty adaptor to start with,changed this and worked for a while.Then we kept getting dropouts from the connection-this turned out to be the router at fault,no matter what research and tinkering with router settings...it just would not sustain a connection.
Bought a new router (Belkin N series)click here and so simple to setup,basically just follow the xbox steps,enter the security key and away we go.
Hi skidzy,nah mate the xbox doesn't see the livbox,we've tried two microsoft adapters and neither worked , we even had them in the same room as the livebox and still no joy,even tried someone else's adapters and they didn't work either and he tried to set it up and it still wouldn't work and that's why i'm going down the homeplug road.(if it will work)
