    CANT CONNECT TO WIRELESS NETWORK

    Is your router using certain security settings? Like only allowing known MAC addresses to join the WiFi? Or are you using a special WiFi authentication method that's different from WEP/WPA? For example, if you live in an apartment complex or student dorm,
    where you need to enter special credentials to connect to the WiFi?

    What exact make and model is your WiFi access point?

    I'm trying to connect a network to my xbox but it's not letting me and this is the message that keeps popping up, "This console supports WPA/WPA2 (personal), WPA2 (personal), and WEP network security protocols, but your router is using something else.
    You'll need to change your router configuration." So I want to know how can I change my router's security protocol so I can connect to the wifi?

    Alternate MAC address

    Hello Cheryl,

    What I suggest is configuring your router with MAC filtering. You can setup a whitelist of MAC addresses and any address that is not in that list would not be able to connect to your network. This would render any attempt at bypassing your security by changing
    the MAC address useless. The Xbox does not use alternate MAC addresses on its own, this has to be done by a user.

    Can't connect to XBoxLIVE

    Hi, ensure the router is using the very latest firmware. Try changing wireless channels on the router also (as a test) try removing the WPA2 security and any mac address filtering.

    So start with no security until you know it works properly and then add security on top

    Also with DHCP reservation, if you are reserving an ip address for the Xbox you don't manually add that into your Xbox, just leave it on auto as that is the point of DHCP reservation it uses the mac address of the Xbox to know which ip address to assign
    it

    Manual wired IP address changes on its own

    Quick Question. Are you using the same MAC address? If so, your wireless MAC address is different than your wired MAC address. Look it up and change it in your Netgear router. If you want the same IP address you were using, you will need to change the
    MAC address for that IP (Routers won't allow you to associate 1 IP address with 2 MAC addresses).
