    Xbox 360 Slim wifi problems


    It wont let me connect to my wifi at home, it worked while I was at school... my room at my house is located directly above the router, so I know I am plenty close to it. All it says is that I need a wireless adapter to connect to live. Quote from the message
    they say....

    "To use a wireless Internet connection, connect to an Xbox wireless Networking adapter to your console."

    This is the only message it says and if I have a slim i shouldn't need a wireless adapter, I know it can connect to my wifi at my home because it has in the past and it did at school. I always take care of it when i transport it from area to area so i know
    damage is not the problem.

    If anybody could help in anyway I would very much appreciate that.

    :)

    Hello.

    If you have a Xbox 360 Slim (which as built-in wifi) and you are asked to attach an external networking adapter or an ethernet cable, then the internal wifi has malfunctioned and your Xbox 360 Slim will need to be repaired.

    In most cases, this problem is a genuine hardware error and the console need a repair. Before arranging a repair, unplug the Xbox power supply and keep it powered down for 10 minutes. Reconnect everything and try to restore your console's network settings to
    factory defaults.

    If the above do not resolve the problem, you'll have to request a repair for your console at myservice.xbox.com.

    Post back and let us know how it goes.

    Problems with WIFI on Xbox 360 Slim

    support.xbox.com/.../connection-error-solution

    If you go there, you can see your type of problem, and then follow the steps to see if that helps you out.

    When you test your connection, and then it fails, check what it tells you the problem might be, then fix that problem, and then maybe it will work.

    Otherwise, if all of that fails, your wireless internet might not work well enough to support your Xbox.

    Xbox360 Slim wireless problems

    Same problem here. My new xbox 360s connects to my network via internal wifi but it will not connect to xbox live. Everything else in the house connects fine. My xbox even connects when I plug in the old Adapter( from my last xbox) meaning the issue is with
    the internal wifi. This is one reason I bought a new xbox slim(internal wifi) this is BS!

    wifi adapter

    Im pretty sure that you cant use the old wifi adaptors with the xbox 360 slim because the internal wifi connection utilizes wifi-N, the newer standard of wireless connections and may not properly interface with the xbox 360 slim.

    As for getting a better signal.... i dont think it really makes a difference, most issues regarding that usually are environmental issues surrounding the 360 and nearby access point or the router. For instance having thick walls, microwaves, other computers
    running wireless, etc.
