Re: xbox 360 adapter
There could be a problem with the adapter, a faulty connectionin the cable or something else, or it could be your router. The adapter only works with type A B & G routers. I know a few people who have N routers and it wont work with them. 1st check to see if your router is a typer A B or G then make sure that the wireless signal is set to a frequency that the receiver can find usually channel 6 or so. 2nd, try disconnecting the adapter rebooting the console, then reconnecting it with the power off. if all else fails, then it might be that it is a bad adapter. Also if you use a wireless encryption, make sure that you have the key entered in the wireless setting on your console, and try using a WEP key as it is easier for the adapter to read then WPA.
