    I recently purchased an Xbox 360 (courtesy of 4JNA, who is an excellent trader). I also just bought an Airport Extreme to bump up the speeds for my AppleTV.

    Anyhow, getting it up and running was a breeze on both my Wii and my MBP, but of course the XBox 360 refuses to see it unless I have my security turned off. Now, I read one single post over at Apple forums from someone who seems to suggest that the latest dashboard update from MS fixes this problem, though it sure hasn't for me (or so it seems).

    1. How do I know I have the latest dashboard update?
    2. Should I be able to run WPA2 and enable 'n' on the Airport Extreme and have it still connect wirelessly to my Xbox?
    3. What do I need to do to get this fixed!

    Typical MS and Apple baloney. Please help. Thanks.

    Disregard. It appears that switching off the security on the base station to allow the XBox 360 to find it and then going back to the base station, turning on security, and then going to XBox 360 and enabling it there has worked.

    Before, it just wouldn't find it. Very odd...
