And guess what ! When you update your slim Xbox it KILLS the wireless adapter on your older Xbox.
All of a sudden my OLD one tells me I have to connect an internet adapter !!!!!!!
DUH ! It IS connected !!
Same thing happened on the Kinect update. THAT I can understand, but I never went to update the old onwe yet I just turned it on
Add to the last post...
I had to hang upside down by my toes to get to the back of the xbox. I removed and reset the wireless USB adapter plug and now it detects the network.
Can anyone say "waste of time" ?
While many of you have been involved in the Xbox LIVE Preview Program and have been busy getting an early look at the next Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE features, I wanted to let you know that the official release for the update for all Xbox LIVE members will be Tuesday, December 6th. In this update, free to all console owners, you will see:
- New personal and social features including Cloud Storage for Game Saves and LIVE Profile
- Beacons and Facebook Sharing
- Enhanced Family Settings
- Integrated voice and gesture controls across the dashboard and in apps
- Bing voice search (Available this year in the US, UK and CA)
In addition to all these great dashboard features, starting on December 6th and continuing on an ongoing basis through the holiday months, a wealth of new content will be coming to Xbox 360. New, customized applications for television, movies, internet videos, sports and music will begin rolling out from world-leading providers in more than 20 countries.
A LOT of rebooting xboxes
rebooting modems and routers
signing in onilne and reading agreements
removing cookies and signing in again
unplugging adapters plugging them back
And sometimes doing those in differnet orders works
But I finally got my wifes older one to work. Or at least to finaly downlod.
So anyone reading check out all of those things over and over and you will at LEAST get one step closer.
Thanks for the reminder. I KNEW about it but forgot this was December all in two days, Even though I hung up the lights this weekend
"Oh THIS Christmas !"
Lucky I didnt have to get Jesus a present or I may have mixed up his birthday with Christmas
I'm actually a little concerned now, as my Xbox updated me on its own (albeit in the middle of a 19-6 HC KC on Mission in which I was in first place on my team, haha.) Didn't have to reconnect or anything.
Wife still hadn't updated when we decided to turn off the Xbox's for the night, though.
