Xbox 360 Customers Can't Connect To Apple AirPort Extreme

On the Apple's tech support forum, customers reported that the new AirPort Extreme recognizes the Wii and the PS3 but not the Xbox 360 unless all security, including password protection, is disabled on the AirPort Extreme. The high-speed router, released late last month, is useful to gamers because it supports the latest Wi-Fi standard 802.11n (previous Wi-Fi standards were too slow to be reliable). Neither Microsoft nor Apple have disclosed the reason for the problem although, according to users using the Apple discussion forum, at least one Microsoft tech claimed Apple didn't get Xbox certification for the AirPort.
