Scott Hanselman’s Computer Zen – Flashing the Firmware of an Xbox MN-740 Wireless Adapter to a D-Link 108AG to support WPA Security

I did some Googling and it turns out that the MN-740 is a dead product. However, the hardware is the same as a D-Link 108AG Gaming Adapter.

If you're comfortable taking the chance that you might brick your adapter and you absolutely void the warranty, you can do a one-way (that means, non-reversible) flash of the MN-740 with some hacking.

Follow the directions in this forum post at DSLReports (while it's still there).

You'll need:

The MN-740 Firmware Update from Microsoft

Three Files attached to the post in the DSLReports forum

You then need to run the Update, and while it's up, but before you hit “next” you overwrite some files using the alternate firmware. Again, you may brick your device, and you're breaking the EULA. You're on your own.
