The adapter should have the right settings as that of the network it is trying to connect to. you may want to contact your wireless router (or wireless AP) manufacturer to get the settings then have the adapter connect to those settings.

My dynex tv only shows channel not available message?

Okay- the three cables (red, white, and yellow) are called RCA plug connectors. They are commonly used to carry audio and video signals.
Plug them into your Xbox according to the color codes- red cable connector to the red socket (jacks); then white to white, and yellow to yellow.
Now connect these leads to the RCA input jacks in the back of your t.v. - maintaining the same color code connections (red to red; white to white, and yellow to yellow)
The RCA input jacks on your t.v. should be labeled with an input number, to distinguish itself from the other inputs, like HDMI, S-Video, and such.
After plugging in your Xbox to the wall outlet or surge strip, turn it on.
Turn your t.v. set on.
With the remote control that came with your t.v. set, open the menu bar, scroll to... and open the "External Output" menu.
You should see a list of [however many] inputs your particular t.v has. Scroll to the input number that the 3 RCA cables are attached to, and press that number as the default video screen.
Exit the prompts and your Xbox video screen should be displayed.

I cant sign into xbox live

You need to test your connection when it fails. Then, whatever failed to connect (ISP, DNS, etc.) is the problem. Go to the support section of and it will help you out with the specifics or call 1-800-4MY-XBOX. Additional Details:What light is staying red? You have to remember that we can't see your setup so you have to be as descriptive as possible. If the red lights are on your 360, then you need to call the number above. It if it on the connection light of the modem then try power cycling the modem. Unplug the modem from it's power source, wait a full minute and then plug it back in.

First try removing any accessories (for eg HD drive, hard drive or network adaptor) from the console and turn on 360. Plug each device back in one by one and turn on to check which device possibly causing the problem.

You should also try using another 360 AV cable sometimes this is the culprit.

If the above methods made no difference then the Xbox 360 might be overheating and which will eventually lead to RROD (Red Ring Of Death - 3 red ligthts) or E74 error message (1 red light) indicating repair.

Check whether your Xbox 360 console is still in warranty as its most likely Microsofts fault not yours and they should repair it for free

You can buy the repair kit off ebay from £4 - £7 and carry out the repairs yourself with plenty of Youtube videos on the net just google it or if dont dont feel confident i can repair for you.

If this helps please vote...thankyou!
