Question about Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 (SKWIFIX360)
Ive had my xbox 360 wireless adapter for about 5 months now and never had a problem now all of a sudden it just stopped working no green or red light nothing i tried un plugging and reconnecting numerous times but still nothing. please help
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.
