Re: wireless adaper that is compatible to use for xbox...
If you mean a wireless network adapter then there is only one that you can buy, as far as i am aware which is the the official microsoft one.
It will work with any wirless router. All you have to do is plug it into the usb into the back of your 360 and go onto your console settings, onto network settings and go on connect. It will search for wireless networks in range. When yours comes on the screen click on it and it will ask you for a wep key. The wep key is on your router, it consists of numbers and letters. Type that into your xbox and it will connect up.
you wont have to keep typing the wep key in, it will only ask you for it the first time you connect up

There is a sync button next to the Play and Charge port on the controller, all you have to do is press both the sync button on the Xbox and the controller and it should connect.
On the nonslim Xbox 360's the sync button is right next to the infared sensor and the memory card slots.
On the slim Xbox 360 the sync button will be right next to the usb ports on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
When you successfully start the sync the led's for the controller's and console's lights will spin and be ready for you to press the sync button on the other device.
(PS, you have to have both the console and the controller on for this to work; PPS, By controller on I mean having it searching)
Is this wireless controller.?? If so, you need to establish a connection to the xbox.
There should be a small plain white button on top of the controller. Hold this button down, while also pressing the white button on front of the xbox. This will allow the xbox to "find" the controller.
If it's a wired controller, test it by using it on a friends or other different xbox. If still not work, then toss it and buy a replacement. Cheaper to buy from Game Stop or similar game recycle store, where you can return it if the "new"one does not work.
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.
I finally found a solution that works for me (most of the time). I bought a USB hub (un-powered at the moment) and the problem seems to have disappeared. The Hub however isn't the solution. Running the controller or the hub from the rear motherboard ports is.
I was initially using the 360 wireless receiver from the front ports on the PC which are driven by a different circuit on the motherboard than those from the rear of the PC.
When the receiver is run from the rear ports or in my case a hub powered from the rear ports it works most of the time.
Ocassionally the receiver doesn't link with the 360 controller however unlike last time when pressing all kind of combinations of re-sync buttons did nothing, all I do now is press the very tiny white button on the front of the controller and it links up like it should within 1.5 seconds.
I hope this helps guys as the controller is great when working.
