Re: xbox 360 intercooler
I have 2 360's (1 core and 1 premium) and have the intercooler on the premium....after measuring the heat output it is reduced moderately. I would only recommend getting the intercooler if you are having heat issues with your 360 or it is in a small not well ventilated area.
Hope this helps.

Blow out the Xbox 360 with compressed air, buy external fans, but don't buy the "Nyko intercooler" as they have been rumored to have cause problems to the Xbox 360 and void warranty. Your best bet is to buy a cheap office fan and point it at the Xbox to cheap the air flowing. Also if possible, move the Xbox 360 into a open space where it has at least 5 inches of space behind it, and at least 2 or 3 inches of space on either side to keep a nice airflow. Best of luck!
Just about any newer routers should work fine with the Xbox 360 wireless adapter. It you are worried about compatibility make sure you get the newest Xbox 360 Network adapter. It is the black one with two antennas. It will work with just about any network.
Microsoft has two different power connections for the Xbox 360. I do not recommend the use of the Intercooler.
Believe it or not, it actually prevents air from circulating and increases the temperature of the 360!
For cooling I always recommend the fan modification. I have written a free guide showing you how to do this, no soldering skills required!
Here is the guide.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
Don't use a intercooler they will bugger your Xbox 360 for sure. From what you said you have your console where it can get plenty of air, this is important as the RROD is caused by overheating.
As for your problem, try unplugging the unit and removing the HDD, put the HDD back on and plug it all back in again.
If this fails, since the unit is only 5 months old call Microsoft, their phone numbers are on the xbox.com web site, they will pay for the product to be returned, and when you get it back it will be as good as new.
Basically i know its a rip off but if u wanna use wireless with the xbox 360 u need to buy the official xbox 360 wireless router which is about £60.There is another way if u dont use wireless u can connect the xbox 360 to a router or the phone line then go to your windows firewall and set it up manually.Hope this can help you .Joe stevenson
