    Hi there,

    That's a negative. You can use Xbox One controllers on an Xbox One console and using the newer

    wireless adapter for Windows 10
    . The X360 controller is programmed to work on Windows PCs, but relies on its own 'Xbox 360 Controller for Windows Wireless Adapter'. These can be found cheaply, second hand. Here are some useful links, for you:

    Wireless adapter

    You must get the
    adapter specifically made
    for Xbox 360 controllers.

    The Xbox Wireless Adapter you've bought is not backward compatible with 360 controllers.

    Here is one on Amazon, for example (they don't sell it on the Microsoft store anymore).

    WIreless Xbox 360 controller won't connect to Windows 10 PC

    Incidentally, I checked on the page where one buys the receiver, and it says that it works for *any* wireless Xbox controller, so that shouldn't be the issue either.
    Can you point us to the page so we can see which wireless adapter you bought?

    Due to a change in the wireless protocol, Xbox 360 and Xbox One use a completely different "language" to talk wireless.

    So unless a third party created a wireless receiver that can talk both protocols, I'm afraid the Xbox 360 controller will NOT work with a Xbox One compliant wireless adapter.

    It might be, that the page says that you can use "any" Xbox One controller with the Adapter (e.g. standard wireless controllers, the Elite wireless controller, the wireless speed wheel, etc.), but you will NOT be able to use Xbox 360 accessories with a Xbox
    One wireless adapter.

    XBox wireless problems

    If I don't have the adapter plugged into the console, it can't find my wireless network. I just get a message saying "To use a wireless internet connection, connect an Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter to your console."
