USB Extender / Hub

I have a comparatively old xBox 360 and then I bought Kinect. Now I want to buy wireless internet adapter but I don’t have enough USB ports in my xBox 360 console. What is the solution if want to get everything attached at the same time. Does xBox supports USB Extender/Hub?

It doesn't.  The kinect plugs into the rear port.  The kinect that you purchased should have come with an extender to plug the wireless adapter into the front and attach it to the back.  If you don't have enough ports have you considered getting wireless controllers?

The 360 will support USB hubs. I'm not sure if Kinect will, though.

 

You could put a hub on the front ports, but as noted Kinect comes with a solution to the wireless adapter problem.

Actually, if the kinect works on the hub you will find reduced functionality from the sensor as it is again sharing ports.

Kinect will not work through a USB Hub, at least not the hub I purchased. Kinect needs it's own dedicated port.

The hub seemed to work for controllers though, including the infrared receiver for the Scene It buzzers. Don't have a wireless network adapter so couldn't try that.

Hey all! You can also get one of the USB extension cables on our store site (www.microsoftstore.com/.../list.true) if you like. As Onyx has outlined, you can still attach your wifi adapter to the back of the console and then plug it in to the front USB ports. Hope this helps, thanks!
