So one day the wireless in my Halo 250GB slim decided to not work, when i got disconnected from XBL i went to go connect back and it wasn't having any of it so i test connection button and no wireless networks came up. i pluged my wireless adapter into my xbox and they start showing, i was wondering if their is a problem with the wireless cards inside the Halo 250GB or all 250GB as a whole, my warranty has run out on it and i dont know how much this is going to cost me :mad: pls help ty

How has the warranty ran out? It hasn't even been a year since Halo: Reach. I'd call up Microsoft and see if you can get it fixed because the card that's in the 360 slims can't be bought anywhere. Other option is to just to use a wireless adapter.

Oh then it was a refurbish one, if that's true then yea I'd still call Microsoft to see how much it would cost, other then that there's nothing you can do that wont cost money.

Just phone Microsoft up. Easiest thing to do.

Dude regardless if you bought that xbox used or not.. it HAS a 1 year warranty left as they haven't been out a year.

If you did buy it used just dont tell MS.. Say it was Bought new from Walmart or whatever.

You'll have to enter the Serial keys in Xbox.com and request a repair and you'll send it in. and get a Refurbished one back.. they might fix yours where its just the wifi adaptor messing up in yours.

Ive done this with consoles i bought second hand.. as long as they are still in warranty then you are good if you dont tell on yourself.
