    Hi,
    I recently bought a new wireless router for my computer. With it I installed a password which I recently did not have with the old one. My problem is connecting to it with my xbox live adapter. The adapter picks the router up, but says "i.p address error" when testing my xbox live connection. I've tried to put in the information manually with no end result. Can I get some help? I have a linksys E2500 router and I assume the password goes in under PPOE settings. Please help!
    EDIT: So When I went to network configuration it has WEP as security. Currently I have WPA2, but there is no way to change it on the xbox. I would rather keep it that way to make the password easy for my family. Anways, when I input the ip address into my url to configure the settings I have the option of 5 and 2.4 ghz security. I'm assuming somewhere here is the problem. Can I have a WPA2 and WEP security. Also which one is good for gaming? Thanks again!

    I know that you can't have two different types of security settings with your modem/router. My suggestion: change to WPA2 at home. It's settings are good for security as far as I understand. It's easy, still uses password prompting (unless you turn that off), so that will probably be your quickest and maybe best way to hooking in with the xbox. That's how I have it, got xbox for my children this Christmas, boom bang, I am set!
