There are only two possible solutions to this porblem.

1; Make sure the wireless adapter is plugged into the usb port and not the ethernet port.
2; If this isnt the issue, there could be a manufacturer's error. Return it to the store.

Wont stop flashing green and I can not connect to xbox live yet I used to be able to Any Help Thanks, Paul


IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. 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.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: 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

When my Xbox 360 is off, the light on the AC Adapter is orange, but when I hit the power button to turn the Xbox 360 on, the light on the AC Adapter turned red.


HI you did not mention is you are able to use the unit even tho the led turns red. If not then the unit is drawing to much current and the power supply is shutting down. Or the power supply is faulty, If you can and know someone with a 360 system try to borrow theirs and see which part of the system is faulty if you know his is good and the same thing happens, or take yours to his house and try, but if same results then the 360 is at fault.

The wireless adapter on my xbox 360 will not turn on. when the device is plugged into the console the status light will flick red for a second and then turn off instead of staying on like it should under...


this happens to me with my adapter but I happen to get it to work by leaving it plugged in and leaving the xbox on.or i restart the xbox over and over. Mine seemes to have like a charge time so keep restarting and plugging the adapter in other ports.. It should after a while turn on. if not try another adapter because it may not be the adapter that's causing the problem. Your console may have bad ports.

Wireless adapter problem


The turning red means that it cannot connect to your network. If you are having trouble connecting it to your network then you are able to enter the details in manually. The WEP key should be on your router. Try entering this. Hope it helps.

Xbox 360 adapter


Just taking a wild guess here, but;

1. is the wireless adapter plugged into the usb port, not the ethernet port.

2. Is there the possibility that the adapter is broken?
