- 2). Plug the adapter's USB power cord into the Xbox 360's USB port, located on the back of the console above the Ethernet port.
- 3). Disconnect any Ethernet cable from the console if applicable.

- 5). Power on the Xbox 360 console and press the "Guide" button on the controller to open a menu.
- 6). Scroll to the "Settings" tab then choose "System Settings" from the menu.
- 7). Choose "Network Settings." This opens a new menu where you can view and edit your console's network connections.
- 8). Select "Configure Network." This menu allows you to view your wireless connections, among numerous other things.
- 9). Choose "Wireless Mode." You will have two options: "Windows Connect Now," which connects the console to a Windows-based computer, or "Scan for Networks," which is what you want.
Choose "Scan for Networks." The adapter searches for available wireless networks for a few seconds. It will deliver a results list upon search completion.
Choose your wireless Internet connection from the list and enter its password.
