I'm struggling a bit here TBH. I don't class myself as an expert on these things, I only studied to A Level in Computing
But I tend to be able to fix most problems I have come across. However, here is where I stand.
I bought the TL-WA500G to connect the lads 360 to the wireless network, which is now a DIR-615. Previously, I had one of the Cisco WGA11B's connecting the Xbox to a WGR614, but when we got a replacement router, it was out with the old, and in with the new. Because I could no longer get the WGA11B to connect
This new adapter is supposed to be simple to connect. I do exactly as it says on the "tin", plug into laptop, find the SSID of the router, put in the WEP key, and nothing happens when I connect it to the Xbox. Tried with no encryption, still the same. The Xbox automatically assigns an IP address, but it's a 169.* prefix, which never works in my experience, so there is something wrong somewhere.
Can anyone point me in the general direction of where I'm going wrong? I'm struggling to get it, and at the moment, the Xbox is connected to wifi via a laptop - Not ideal! He should have got a PS3
