    Hi,

    I'm trying to use my AE (Airport Extreme) Base Station to give my xbox 360 wireless. Has anyone done this?

    My setup is as Follows:

    Netgear WGR614 v7 Router connected to my Cable Modem
    AE Base station connected wirelessly to the Netgears Network
    Xbox 360 connected via ethernet to AE.

    It's not working though. My AE gets an IP automatically from the Netgear fine, but the xbox won't connect. I have my AE on "Join Wireless Network" mode and it's LED is solid green but it still doesn't give the xbox any internet.

    Any suggestions?

    How is the AEBS setup when it comes to distributing IP addresses etc.?

    If possible post screenshots of your AEBS settings.

    Cheers

    Fixed the problem?

    I've got a very similar set up to you and have hit the same wall. Did you manage to solve the problem?

    Use ONE router and buy the Xbox 360 Wireless adapter. Connects fine to my Airport Extreme.
