    Windows 10 shows my xbox 360 wireless adapter as "unknown device"


    Hey all,

    I have a 360 wireless xbox 360 controller, which works with my pc using a wireless adapter through usb.

    I've been using it for years daily, using windows 7.

    I recently updated to windows 10, and now it doesn't work.

    Device manager shows it as "unknown decive".

    I tried updating windows, plugging it to another usb port, restarting, updating driver using the "let me find" option on device manager, uninstalling xbox 360 accessories...nothing works Windows 10 shows my xbox 360 wireless adapter as "unknown device" :(

    I got to this screen:

    But when I press ok - it still shows as an unknown device...

    It works perfectly on my laptop using windows 10, Installed and tested today.

    Any idea what else can be done?

    :)

    Windows 10 shows my xbox 360 wireless adapter as "unknown device"

    Hey,

    I read that it's included in Windows 10 as part of the windows update.

    I had it installed originally, uninstalled, now tried installing again - no luck.

    xbox 360 Wireless Adapter device driver for windows 10

    i found this on another thread.... please try the following:

    For a wireless adapter for your Xbox 360 controller, look under your device manager.

    Then look under unknown peripherals or something that is unknown.

    Click update driver / browse computer for driver software.

    Select let me pick a list of available drivers.

    Find Xbox 360 wireless receiver for windows (newest version).

    That should get your controller to connect to the wireless adapter.

    The adapter didn't auto-install

    • Make sure your Windows 10 device is up to date by going to Windows Update on your device and checking for available updates.
    • Reboot your device and try again.
    • Ensure your USB ports are not disabled in your Device Manager.
    • Try another USB 2.0 or 3.0 port.
    • Try reinstalling the drivers in case they have partially installed. To do so, you need to uninstall the drivers. Follow these steps to complete this process:
      1. Go to your Device Manager.
      2. Locate Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows in the Network adapters section.
      3. Click Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows to bring up the Properties window.
