    Hmm, I've never heard of connecting using wireless n before. I know g works just fine, but if you want n, search around google for a bit, you'll probably find it

    Normally, wireless routers that are "N" are backwards compatible with G,B (sometimes A). Of course, the speed won't be "N".

    You may have to jump into your router's wireless connection settings and turn it on. Look for something that says "N only" and change it to "B, G, and N". Wordings will differ.

    get a wireless access point that connects with a LAN cable set it up using the pc to access your wireless router as an access point...... then just disconnect from the pc and connect it to the XBOX/360 now your wireless router will feed your newly set up access point an internet connection [​IMG]

    you just need to set the network settings up on the xbox/360 to AUTO /detect the network settings and IP settings [​IMG]

    The Xbox 360 wireless adapter is only a/b/g compatible, the hardware itself cannot use 802.11n. You'll have to settle for g if you're using the official wireless adapter. If you really want n, use a wireless bridge, as suggested by kobykaan

    It's a hardware limitation, not a software limitation. I don't believe this will ever be possible.

    +1 linksys gaming adapter. I've had it for a few months and it works great. Got it cheap off ebay too.
