    Hi I am in need of some help getting this device to see and connect to my
    existing Wireless network.

    My set up is as follows

    2 PCS -XP PRO EACH WITH WIRELESS CARDS (each can connect to the web
    independently)
    1 LINKSYS WIRELESS G ROUTER
    1 LINKSYS WIRELESS G GAMING ADAPTER
    1 NTL BROADBAND MODEM


    I have followed the instructions and connected the adapter first to one of
    the PCs and set up the pass word used to connect to my network, then
    connect the adapter to the Xbox but it doesn't see the network.

    I am a complete novice to networking so I am at a complete loss as what to
    do next.

    TIA

    Right I have an update

    Took down the wep and reset the adapter and I can connect, then reset the
    adapter using the passkey and it canot find dns settings although I checked
    they were the same as the settings with wep down.

    It's as if the router is not letting the adapter connect when wep is
    enabled, I also noted the adapters IP is 192.168.1.250 so I tried setting
    this into the DMZ setting thinking if the router sees this trying to connect
    it will allow it to do so but it still doesnt.

    I have had this adapter for nearly a year and slung it in a cupboard because
    I couldn't get it to work, looks like I might be doing it again

    Managed to get it working by changng the level of encryption up to the next
    level :) Why it worked I dont know but glad it did.

    Thanks to those who took the time to help ;-)
