    Help needed setting up xbox live with wireless

    Hi, I need help from any XBOX 360 pro's or wireless PC geniuses! I'm just trying to connect my 360 to live using my Belkin wireless router modem, it came with that dongle style attachment which I was hoping to use with the 360 but it doesn't seem to pick anything up when I plug it in.
    Just to clarify though the modem works fine and I use it everyday with my laptop and the dongle works fine I've just set it up on my laptop and connected to the net successfully.
    I have plugged it into the usb socket on the 360 and started the live setup and if fails on the first step!
    Escuse my ignorance people but I've never used live before and have never set anything like this up. Any help would be apprecaited!
    :thumbsup:

    the dongle does not work as an adaptor for wireless network setup on the xbox 360...the offical one or gaming adaptors do but the dongle does not.

    Damn, I was hoping that wasn't the problem! lol
    So if I bought the "official" one does that just connect to my existing modem/router? Thanks for your help jdx360

    yes it does, plugs in via usb on 360 and connects to your home network
