Xbox 360 Update Adds WPA2 Support For WiFi Adapter

By Alice O'Connor, Oct 28, 2009 7:44am PDT A new Xbox 360 system update is rolling out this morning, bringing support for the WPA2 security protocol to the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter. Owners will be prompted to download the mandatory update when they next sign into Xbox Live.

Microsoft's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hyrb stresses that the update does not include the upcoming Facebook, Twitter and integration nor the Zune Marketplace 1080p "instant-on" streaming video, which are all scheduled to arrive "later next month."

A new version of the Wireless Adapter with support for 802.11n in the works.

  • That new WiFi adapter should really be useful for those who already have the Xbox 360 with no built-in WiFi. With this WiFi adapter, they can be able to connect their Xbox 360 to the internet using wireless connection through their wireless router. If this doesn't work for you though, and you're looking for a nice alternative, I've got just the thing for you. Check out this Xbox 360 Internet Connection Kit from Netgear, it acts the same way as the WiFi adapter giving wireless internet connectivity for your Xbox 360, and it also works for your PS2, PS3, and PC gaming. Check this link out:, for more information about this wonderful product from Netgear.
