Ok, This is the 7th time this has happened to me. This is the problem and what I have tried to correct it.
My Xbox 360 Slim will not find any wireless networks. My router is a NetGear and it is less than 12 feet away from the console. So obviously the Xbox shouldn't have to play too dificult of a game of where's waldo for my xbox 360 slim.
How I have tried to fix it:
I have reset my router, reset my modem, reset my xbox, pulled the internal Wifi chip out and put it back in, specified the unlisted network, reset my Xbox to the factory defaults, tried 3 different routers, and have even tried making my xbox find the router through a USB set up. Nothing is working.
What happens exactly:
I am playing a game online, get the notification "disconnected from xbox live", I go to network connections, it shows my router with no bars, so I disconnect and scan for wireless network, No Wireless Networks Found pops up, I reset router and modem, scan again, No Wireless Networks Found pops up again, and I continue messing with it for hours. No error messages pop up at all. I even went as far as to call my internet provider and they can't help. Called the router company and they couldn't help. Just will not find my router or any router for that matter. I live in a suburb so I would find something else even if it was three faulty routers. So there has to be something wrong with the internal wifi chip. I even have three computers in my home that can find my router without issues.
So there are all the facts, Please someone help. I am so sick of this problem. It sometimes fixes itself but I am sick of it happening at all since I bought the xbox brandnew and pay every month to use xbox live. This is rediculous!
