I am having problems with wireless connection to my xbox 360, the problem being my wireless adator i

I am having problems with wireless connection to my xbox 360, the problem being my wireless adator is failing to pick up the signal from my orange livebox and keeps being affected by 2 or 3 otherwireless networks and finding those. i have reset everything and managed to get it all connected for 1 night but now the problem is back. if it does connect it will only connect for a few seconds. Is there anyway in which i can block the other wireless networks or secure mine so no-one is trying to connect to it? Thank you

There are 13 channels you can choose for the wireless transmission. Your Livebox will default to one particular channel but that may be a poor choice if there is a lot of interference or other transmissions on that channel. So try logging on to your Livebox and changing the wireless channel. Wireless adaptors usually scan all the channels so I don't think you will need to make any other changes.

Check the instructions that came with the Live box. To connect a new device you have to press one of the buttons on the Orange live box and then have about 30 seconds to connect it.
