    Hey there
    NoTaBeLL
    ,

    Thanks for letting us know that this is happening.

    Most people like to use a wired connection as it's usually faster and more reliable, so I can see how a problem like this can be concerning.

    If you don't mind me asking, have you already tried another cable or a different channel on the modem?

    If it does not show up no matter what wire you plug in, you could be experiencing a hardware problem of some sort.

    When you get a chance, try another cable or the steps outlined in our
    Xbox One Connection and Network Solution
    and let us know if they help.

    Thanks for reading!

    Do you have something else other than the Xbox to plug the cable into and test if that connects? I'm wondering if the cable is good. Testing with another device will verify if it's an issue with the cable. If not, it's possible that it's just too long?
    The effective distance of a CAT5 cable is 100 meters. It can go longer, and most of the time with little degredation, but it can impact and cause issues to your network traffic.

    In addition to that I would recommend logging into the router and checking to see if it recognizes the device via the interface. That way you'll know if it's an issue with connecting to the router, or if it's an issue with the console recognizing the wired
    connection.

    Let us know what you get, so far, and we can provide some further troubleshooting, as there are very many different directions we can go from here.
