If the light on the adapter is red it means it cant find the network you have set it up to
if its green it means your network is in range and connectable

reconfigure the settings and then check if the light if its still red if it is it may be your internet causing it.

plz rate.

The distance between my box(xbox360) and the broadband is far, can use wifi adaptor to connect online? Thanks

  • I would recommend getting the upgraded Wi-Fi connector available here. If has increased range a durable connection speed. You didn't specify if you have a wireless router, so I'm going to assume that you do. If you don't, a wireless adapter will not work.
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

Doese the xbox wireless adaptor meant to be red when xbox is on

Yes it is red as long as it is not connected to a network. Once the xbox is on if you go to your wireless settings and connect it to your wireless network the light will turn green.

I just bought a Belkin wireless router for my internet to connect with my microsoft xbox 360 wireless adapter. the light turns on the adapter but it is a amber color and not red or green like always...

I've never heard of a Wireless Adapter turning amber or orange? This can be a simple light problem inside your Xbox 360. If it were fixed, the highest possibility is that color should be red. If so, this means the connection is not strong enough to your modem, and adapter. You will have move your Xbox 360 console closer to your wireless modem for the connection to be the best.

Ac adaptor blinking orange. Xbox360 won't power up.

An orange light is illuminated on the power supply for one of the following reasons:
  • The console is turned off.
  • The power supply is disconnected from the console.
  • The power supply cord is not fully inserted into the power socket of the console.
  • The power supply is faulty.
  • The console is faulty. (The console might be faulty if it does not turn on when the power supply light is orange.)
Step 1: Try to connect and then disconnect the power supply

loadTOCNode(2, 'whattotry'); Follow these steps to connect and then disconnect the power supply:
  1. Turn off the Xbox 360 console.
  2. Disconnect the cord that connects the power supply to the console.
  3. Reconnect all the cords, and then try to turn on the console.
if after this also your console does not power up then you need to check if you are seeing any flashing red lights on the power button of Xbox 360, if you see the red flashing lights then you would have to get your power adaptor replaced by calling up MS Customer Support.

If you do not see flashing red lights on the console power button in that case the console itself would have to be send for repairs

Please do rate my solution, Wish you Happy Holidays and Happy Gaming

How do i hook up xbox 360 to play xbox live

simplest way: connect the grey network cable that is provided to the back of the xbox360 network port. Connect the other end to your router.

If you dont have a router with sockets on it or your xbox is too far away then you can buy a wireless adaptor from xbox for this, it is an accessory.

once you are connected you need to sign up for an account. You can link this to your email address.

That's all there is to it.
