Does anyone have any experience trying to connect to xbox live using the 5 GHz wireless ban? I am having difficulty getting a good signal.
I have security set to WPA2 only and AES. I have a static IP address and everything else recommended for a good connection. When I set the channel to a lower channel (36, 40, 48 etc.) I only get one bar but I can connect to xbox live. Unfortunately the connection drops every few minutes.
When I try a higher channel (149, 153, 157 etc.) to get more power for the signal, I get all 4 bars but when I look at network configuration settings on the console, the network type and wireless mode keep flashing very rapidly from "802.11n / Infrastructure channel 149" to "not connected / infrastructure" Like I say, it flashes very rapidly back and forth at less than half a second intervals.
Am I doing something wrong? Is xbox live simply not compatable with higher channels or the 5 GHz ban altogether? I googled the problem and apparently I am alone in the universe with this specific issue. I can't find any info on what channels can be used with xbox live.
Any help would be appreciated.
