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.

    Wow. The 360 wireless adapter didn’t know about WPA2 until now?
    That’s terrible.

    Bah, id rather have a small wireless access point next to my 360 than the wireless network adapter. Cheaper, better, WPA2 support already – well everything about networking supported already(if the WAP is good)

    My guess this is actually support for WPA2 in the console, to allow it to “talk” WPA2 to the adapter. It makes far more sense for them to not have had WPA2 support in a console that’s been out for almost four years now than to not have it in the adapters themselves, especially with the new Wireless-N adapter coming.

    PS3 got the Joker DLC exclusive. 360 got GTA4 DLC as well as Fallout 3 DLC first. It is all in the deals,
    360 losing the Netflix streaming exclusive on consoles with PS3 getting it next month; that will be huge, That was a powerful counterpoint to no blu-ray support on the 360. It would be nice if 360 support external blu-ray drives even if they did not make it themselves.

    I asked the question regarding to the preview in the preview forums and te response was that nothing will happen to people who are in the Preview Program. It’s only related to the wireless Adapter

    Maybe mandatory wasn’t necessary. Then again, maybe more is involved that has been stated.

    This is good. My MS adaapter sthat only cost me $40 will have WPA2 support. They are not expensive if you look for a deal. Just lik ethe points are cheaper and the XBL service is too if you get them on sale.
