Msg on xbox says ''not connected''

Just purchased wireless connection to X-box. It now shows that there's a USB port in the x-box but says it's not connected. What are we doing wrong?

    both are plugged in. If it's plugged into the back there's a steady red signal, if it's plugged in the front we get the same thing. We're thinking, because we have a 2 story house with the computer upstairs and the Xbox downstairs the signal may not be a good one. Best Buy says the unit we have is guaranteed to get a signal. I think they're wrong! Any ideas?

Sure, the usb port must be the back port, when you plug it in the light on the wireless adapter should be red. Once you turn the xbox on, the wireless should turn green. Go to test xbox live->test xbox live->edit settings-> the wireless settings should be at the bottom (the 3rd one down) click on it, (here if you have a password for your network insert the password. -> (press b to back out once) and test xbox live again. It should work if it doesn't please let me know, i'm doing the settings off the top of my head.
Hope it works.

Older XBox 360 with wireless antenna - can't connect to network - why not?


What color does your wireless adapter (xbox) turn when you power on your xbox? Green, Red, or Grey (No light)?

If it's grey(no light), try connecting the adapter into one of the USB ports in front of the console(the usb ports are behind that flap)

If it's red, it's a hardware problem and you should try and repair it.. or replace it (xbox antenna).

If it's green, then it's something to do with your network settings.

Good Luck

It is possible that the Xbox will be unable to pick up the wireless signal being transmitted by your gateway because the signal is too weak.

The connection speed of your internet has nothing to do with the strength of the signal. The best way to test this would be to try to connect to your wireless internet on a laptop while sitting near the xbox. If you cannot, you will know that the signal isn't powerful enough to reach that location.

There are three common options to amplifying your signal if necessary.

1) Purchase a High-gain antenna for your wireless gateway
2) Purchase a wireless repeater
3) Purchase a new router/gateway with a longer range capability. A "Wireless N" enabled router would be optimal for this application.

The white wireless contoller from an older white x box 360 does not connect with the black kinnect x box 360 we just purchased.. i was told they were compatible why doesnt the white controller work with...


There is a sync button next to the Play and Charge port on the controller, all you have to do is press both the sync button on the Xbox and the controller and it should connect. On the nonslim Xbox 360's the sync button is right next to the infared sensor and the memory card slots. On the slim Xbox 360 the sync button will be right next to the usb ports on the front of the Xbox 360 console. When you successfully start the sync the led's for the controller's and console's lights will spin and be ready for you to press the sync button on the other device.
(PS, you have to have both the console and the controller on for this to work; PPS, By controller on I mean having it searching)

The wireless control input on the back of the TV is not is not for a wireless adapter. It is used to connect a wireless media box, which you don't have. I have the same TV and use the wireless adapter. You want to plug your LG AN-WF100 into one of the USB ports on the left side of the TV.

Connecting my xbox to internet with utstarcom um100c modem on pc


You are not going to like the answer I have for you. Forget connecting wireless with X-box. Purchase a router with an Ethernet port. I do this for a living and run in to this problem all the time. Trust me, hard wire with X-box is the way to go. A Lynksys router is a good router and is also VERY user friendly.

X box


Hey dc13240,

It also snaps in. Once you plug it into the back usb port, it fits snuggly over that gap.

Here's a pic for reference.
