    I've had my wireless adapter for some time. A year maybe a little less. I was playing on Sunday and it worked fine, then on Wednesday it stopped working. I scanned it for networks and it comes up with nothing even though the router is just in the other room. The light is red but when I turn the xbox on it turns green for a split sec.

My network adaptor arrived today. I'm just updating it now...I plugged it in and it worked fine, started the xbox live update, then stopped. I checked and a red light was on. I unplugged it and put it back in, the same thing happened to me, a green light flashed up for a split second. So i wiggled it about a bit and managed to get it to work now...give it a go.

I was going to buy an Xbox 360 wireless network adapter but im not sure if my Buffalo Router will connect to it. can anyone help


Just about any newer routers should work fine with the Xbox 360 wireless adapter. It you are worried about compatibility make sure you get the newest Xbox 360 Network adapter. It is the black one with two antennas. It will work with just about any network.

I cant connect to xbox live


The red meant it was ready for configuration. If there is no light it means it is not receiving power. Try plugging it in again, or plugging it in to a front USB slot. If it still doesn't work your adapter has a defect and should be replaced.

My light stays red never turns green


This means that it hasnt connected to a wireless router. Make sure your router is wireless, that you have searched for you network and found it. If this still doesnt work then make sure that your routers wireless capabilities are working and try entering the settings in manually to the xbox 360 network settings.

Xbox wirless adapter


I had the same problem last week. Xbox Support says I need a new adapter, so I figured I would tinker around with the broken one. On the USB connector itself, there is a outer stainless shroud, and the inner black piece with the gold contacts on it. What happens is the wifi adapter contacts no longer touch the console contacts, hence the light never comes on and the console doesn't recognize it. I stuck a screwdriver between the stainless shroud and the black connector plate, and made the gap a little bigger, now the adapter works perfectly. I think this is a design flaw, as I never move the console or adapter, but over time, the pressure from the USB cable makes the contacts loose and it eventually no longer touches. Saved me $100 bucks.

Xbox adapter


your problem may be as simple as auto sign in disabled, you have probally alredy solved this but i will let everyone else know the solution if you whack the guide button, and go over to settings, if your using the xbox NXE dashboard, then click Profile, Then scroll down to auto sign-in and click there, and there shoul be a xbox live bit, make sure its enabled other wise you have to do it manually.
