I have a new xbox wireless n adapter that I received as a gift. It connects without problems, but after about 5-10 minutes of usage, it disconnects and will not reconnect to xbox live. After multiple reboots, it would do the same, connect and work fine for a few minutes and disconnect. It is not an issue with range (unless it is a very sucky adapter, since I have another adapter that I use for my TV right next to it) I unplugged the adapter after it disconnected and it seems to be much hotter than it should be after a few minutes of use. I am starting to think it is defective.
