Vista has an issue with Xbox 360 controllers, let alone Madcatz copies. I would recommend buying an official wired controller for use with Vista. Alternatively you can you a Wireless Gaming Receiver specially designed for using Wireless Controllers on Windows based PC's.

My xbox 360 controller can not connect


Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

My pc has room for one ethernet cable and its already taken to a router box. i have no idea what its for but now there seems to be nowhere to hook up my 360. i want to hook up for xbox live and netflix....


Simply put

You need to plug your xBox 360 into the Router not the PC.

The Router should have more than one ethernet slot. (That is what is generally meant by the term Router).

Therefore:

1. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into your xBox 360.
2. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into an available slot on the Router.

If your Router is constantly connected to the Internet then this should solve the problem. If it is not, then connect to the Internet via your PC and then when the internet is on the xBox should find it.

Hope this helps. Regards,

My network is using a linksys wireless G router and i can't seem to get the right settings put into the xbox menu because it doesn't find my network

In regards to your wireless connection issue with your XBOX 360 do you have the wireless adaper connected to the XBOX. Note most XBOX 360's do not have a built in wireless adapter, some of the Elites do but most do not.

Hope this helps

Wireless not working


Run the network tests from within the 360 menus - looking especially at the result for network address translation (NAT). If this is either limited or fail, you will need to change your router for one which is compatible with xbox live. Try xbox.com to work out which routers are recommended.

As far as your router kicking him when you connected your pc, then you must have altered the access permissions of the router maybe by accident.

If all else fails, turn off the pc, router, modem and 360. Find the reset button on your router and press/hold this for at least five seconds. Turn on the modem, then the router. Let that settle for a minute, then connect and setup 360 and laptop.

Can't connect with network


if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3

Xbox 360 Controllers went out


If the batteries died, the console lost its link to the controller. It must be re-sync'ed.
Please visit this link

It explains how to enable/disable wireless controllers.
Hope this helps!
