    about 8months+ ago I bought a network adaptor for my xbox360, and on the day I tried to get it working it had a red light glowing, it was stubborn as hell..Im pretty sure there isnt a point of buying these things, they are AWFUL like most things microsoft make :@ its really got me annoyed, and now im trying to use it again it wont work, still with a red light, I try to connect to xbox live but it instantly goes and says I cannot connect...I wouldnt have bothered wasting 60 pounds on this if I knew it wouldnt work, now I cant even get my money back..

The red light doesnt mean that its broken, it just means it needs a network to connect to. i had this same problem several times and all i had to do to fix it was to disconnect my xbox from its normal network connection, and then reconnect it. to do this just go to configure network, scan for networks, and then connect to what it should normally be connected to. idk why it does that, but it has worked every time for me. hope it works for all of you

You might have to try a different security mode on your router, pick a a security mode that most devises can connect to like WEP-128.

I have an ac adapter for the new xox 360 250 gb , that has the red light lighted up that means false alarm what should i do to get it back to green its been 1 week?


Check the status light on your adapter The state of the adapter's status light indicator can tell you the status of the Xbox 360 Wireless G Networking Adapter. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

    Collapse this imageExpand this imagewirelessnetadptgreen1.jpg
  • Steady red light: The adapter is ready to be configured. For information on how to do this, please see: 908877 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908877/ ) How to configure wireless settings on your Xbox 360 console
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support.
  • Not illuminated: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console.

  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.
  4. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article:
    977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  5. Select Scan for Networks.
  6. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article:
      909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal

  7. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.
  8. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

    If you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, you'll see this screen:

I cant connect to xbox live


The red meant it was ready for configuration. If there is no light it means it is not receiving power. Try plugging it in again, or plugging it in to a front USB slot. If it still doesn't work your adapter has a defect and should be replaced.
