hi there

i was working fine with my new router DSL-2730U D-link router and using it's wireless connectivity with G/N mixed mode..and i noticed that the range is so low so i decided to switch to N-only mode and when i did that i couldn't connect at all!..the router uses N-150 btw..

You cannot connect to N based wireless without an N network adapter.

it was my Xbox slim that promoted me to use Wireless N in the first place to connect to live so yeah...i think my wireless adapter in the Xbox Supports Wireless N..

ah..with all do respect, why would it promote me for an "N" mode when it can't use it..when i try to connect using mixed mode (G/N) the xbox gives me this message:

"You are using 802.11G which may result in the network being slow, you r advised to use 802.11N mode. switch to N mode from your router if your router supports it"

or something within those lines..

Assuming your network is secured try connecting with encryption disabled and then re-enable encryption and try again. Why you ask? Because maybe the encryption got "out of sync" and this isn't really a problem with 'N' per se.
