My Pelican PL-3669 Wireless Gaming Adaptor and Mac.... how to connect?

Hi, I'm on vacation right now, and I brought my XBOX 360 along with me so I could still keep intact with my friends back home. I tried using my Pelican Wireless Adapter (which hasn't given me any problem in the past with my network) with my grandma's Airport network, and I loaded everything onto the adapter correctly, but it still wouldn't connect the X360 to the network. I've looked EVERYWHERE for help on this topic, but it seems no one else has a problem with this. Is there any advice you could give me?

    We no longer have the setup disk for this adapter. Is there a way to get the adapter to connect to our home network router without it? Thanks...

If you have a secure network like I do, with mac filtering; curiously in addition to the mac address for the wireless adapter the xbox 360 has its own mac address - both must be entered for it to work right. And, the mac address is buried in advanced settings. Hope that helps.

When it askes for the encription key, it ether mean for your router password(if it's not 8 didgets, put 1's on the end) OR its wants you to create a password.

I went to my friends house and brought madden 11 I BROUGHT 2 CONTROLLERS to play 4 player he hooked my controlers to his console i have no clue how 2 hook it back 2 mine

there is a small round button (i think near the usb ports or under the disk drive) press that and hold the xbox button in in the middle of the controller. the lights on the xbox will spin and then the light on the controller and xbox should flash and it should be synced back to your xbox.

My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...

Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

It is a compulsary update for your Xbox 360 system so it can support the feature you are trying to do. So you really might want to join to Xbox Live by creating an Xbox Live account and by signing in to Xbox Live, it will automatically install the latest firmware to update your system.

Xbox 360 is turning on for less than a second

Got kind of bad news , It is the power supply ,but it's the power supply
in side the box itself. It's more than likely a shorted regulator specifically
one of the 12 volt liner reg chips , I had to swap a few out to resolve
this a few times.

Green light flashing on controller no light on 360

You need to reconnect your controller to your xbox. Next to the two memory slots on the front of your xbox, there should be a small round button. Turn on both your controller and your xbox. Push the little round button. There should be a similar button on your controller. Push that too. They should recognize each other.

Hi Viktoriag,
Once you recover your gamertag for the first time, it is signed up for the IP address you signed up on.
In other words, he can only play using the gamertag at his friends house.
Theres a few options such as getting a wireless router for his home, but thats alot of money and time for a little subscription.
Alternatively, you can call the xbox support tam and ask them torelocate.
Hpe this helps, good luck
