My wireless contoller wont connect

It will only connect and actually play when it is right next to the xbox console. When I move it a couple of inches away it disconnects it.

If so, it really sounds like your controller keeps losing sync with the 360.

- turn them both off
- turn on the 360 with the power button on the console
- wait for it to start up, then press the sync button next to the usb flap on front.
- then press the sync button on the controller (by the recharge connection slot)

That should reset it.

It says I can't connect to Xbox Live because my router doesn't have sufficent MTU settings. It says I have to go on my PC, goto my router configuration webpage and somehow either assign MTU settings...


the xbox site has a good list of solutions: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/kb/error-your-network-does-not-have-sufficient-mtu-setting.aspx?kbid=979104
From that list, here's a couple simple things to try:
If it has worked before, try rebooting your home router (or unplug it from the outlet, wait 10-15 seconds, and plug back in).
If it has not worked before, and it is wireless, it may be a weak or wireless signal. Try moving any cordless phones away from the xbox or home router, or moving your router to a different location, even a couple feet away.

Contoller will not connect to console as directed in manual. Button on x box does not make green lights flash on console to connect with wireless controller


If you press the the small white sink button on your
console and the the lights don't go around in a circle
then the RF / Power button board is defective .
The name of the part goes by the name R.O.L.

They are cheap and easy to install ( plug and play)

For my xbox i have a wireless connector and wireless interet in my house but the xbox wont connect to live


Will it not connect, like it gets to the point to connect and nothing or...? Also, check the actual wireless usb connector led light. Is it red or green? These things have a tendency to get shorts in them. Try wiggiling it around and see if the light flickers off and on.

Xbox wont sync with my wireless contorller


Have you ever synced one of these controllers before?

Hold the controller in your hand as if you were playing a game. Next flip the controller up so that the buttons on it, are facing you.

There is a small white button that you will see. Power your xbox up and after you get to your main menu press the sync button located about 2 inches to the left of your main power button on your console.

Press the described button on the console and then the described button on your controller. The two should sync together perfectly fine.

Wireless controller flashing green light but wont detect xbox360?


Have you tried resyncing your xbox and controllers? On the controller, press the little circle button on the top of the controller, between the bumpers. On the 360, there's a small circle button, about half inch wide, next to the memory card ports. Press that as well.

I had the same problem with my new controller. The trick is to hold the connect button on the console for a few seconds and then hold the connect button on the controller. The main part is to hhhhoooolldddd it until the ring lights up.

Link Your Console to Another Console


Console-to-Console Connection: Wireless Some Xbox games offer console-to-console, or system-link, play, in which two or more players (depending on the game) can wirelessly network their consoles for multiplayer use. Console-to-console wireless networks are also known as ad-hoc networks. In ad-hoc networks, a wireless adapter on one device connects directly to a wireless adapter on another device. An Internet connection isn't shared with this type of network, and the console-to-console connection is typically temporary. For console-to-console play, you need: Two Xbox 360 consoles. Two Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapters. An Xbox 360 game that supports system link play. To wirelessly connect your console to another console: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of each console as described in Use Your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter. On each console, go to the System area to enter your network settings. (They will be the same for each console.) If all settings are correct, exit the System area. The consoles should now be wirelessly connected to each other.
