Cannot make wireless connection to XBOX Live......DNS NOT
FOUND "No DNS Server addresses were received from the
DHCP or PPPoE server. Enter the DNS Server(s) provided by
your ISP in the Network Settings menu"

Upgraded firmware of router and adapter to:

Linksys WRTG54G Firmware Version v2.04.3 & Microsoft MN-
740 Firmware Version 1.0.2.21 Boot:1.3.0.05

Router and XBOX Dashboard set for Auto DHCP. 128 bits
WEP enabled with the appropriate key matching.
Infrastructure mode. UPnP disabled.
I've even manually entered the Network Settings into Xbox
without connection success.

Two notebooks have no problem with getting IP assignment
and connecting wirelessly. However, I have noticed that
before router firmware upgrade my signal strength in this
particular location of the house was good to
excellent....post upgrade signal strength now low, very
low, to intermittent disconnect with very low Mbps.
Also,3 ethernet connections with no problems after upgrade

In the Wireless section of the XBOX dashboard I can see
the wireless connection but it is slow, signal strength
low and connection is intermittent

TIA for any assistance anyone can provide.....I've seen
post in this newsgroup that addressed other issues
regarding these two devices but none specifically to this
problem. The MN-740 user guide nor the w.xbox.com/connect
site has a resolution.

Enable UPnP in the router or manually persistent port forward the ports
to the xbox.

Also since the wireless signal is polarized from the MN-740 you might
try playing with the external antenna of your wireless devices.
