Xbox 360 System Update – Wireless Adapter WPA2 support

 

The team has released a system update for the Xbox 360 over Xbox LIVE.

Sometime over the next few hours when you sign in to Xbox LIVE you’ll receive a prompt to accept this mandatory update. If you are signed into LIVE already, you may be signed out and asked to accept the update and you’ll be back online in a few moments.

This update does not include the Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and Zune features. Those will be coming to Xbox LIVE later next month. This update adds WPA2 support for the Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter.

    After installing this update I also had problems with my console, like two other commenters said. It initially worked and it all was running okay, but then when I turned it one this morning it wouldn’t connect to my wireless network and after I tried to do re-set up the connect the system froze as I was entering my wireless key. I restarted the console and had a go of GTA4 Ballad of Gay Tony and the video would freeze for about 10 seconds whilst the sound still played and then go back to normal and then about 30 seconds later it would do the same. It wouldn’t quite crash, just freeze the video for about 10 seconds then go back to normal. I wonder if it is just a coincidence or if the update did something?

    I reset the network settings to default and tried setting up the connection again, went through the troubleshooter which asked me to remove the wireless adapter and put in an ethernet cable and that worked and then I put the wireless adapter back in and now it runs okay. So maybe removing and reinserting the adapter and resetting my wireless to default fixed it up, as I’m not getting any freezes now.

    I’ll post back if it starts playing up again.

    Some of us actually want to use the Max Memory for nothing more than DLC and profile storage. People hacking them is the reason that I can’t use mine. Even though I have no intention to hack anything. Thanks dude.

    I have not encoutered that.
    My Max Memory simply does not show up in the memory section.
    My HDD & official memory unit’s show up fine…
    I guess there must be some differences between official MU’s & Datel’s MU’s if it’s easily detectable/blockable.

    @ EXL Unit

    Hacking what?

    The reason the Max Memory doesn’t work is because Microsoft blocked it as they don’t get any money from Datel.
    They have not been blocked because of ‘hacking’ – what you can hack, i don’t know… probably nothing.
    Maybe it’s a bit easier to copy small files to your 360, but that’s about it.
    Anything over 50mb will take way too long to copy to the microSD card. That’s where the HDD comes in.

    @TheBossMan117 @EXL Unit I was this far ::holds fingers about a CM apart:: from buying one of the Datel units in Best Buy a few weeks ago. You can’t find the Official 512MB units in retail anymore and for the same price you could get the 2GB unit from Best Buy.

    I was there to pickup a power cord ($12?!?!!!) because I was moving my son back into the dorms and he had misplaced one of his and I was pissed at the price and did not want to give them any more money than I had to at the time.

    Why is it I can buy power cables for $2 online and HDMI cables for $8, but I go into a retail store and they think they can charge $12 & $35????

    Gripeing about prices, the Official MU should really be priced like $10 US or $15 US for a pair to be reasonable priced. A larger capacity version would be nice also like a 2GB or $20 would be nice also. Neither the PS3 or Wii require the use of proprietary memory modules to store saves, profiles or DLC on.

    Luck You. I sent an email to MS before I purchased one. And the rely i got stated that any 360 product on the shelf for storage devices were okay to use on the 360. So I bought it (3 weeks ago) and now it doesn’t work. Needless to say. I’m jacked about it. MS Support cost me $40 for a hunk of junk that no longer works.
