    Hi all,

    The home theater looked like the best place to put this thread. I've got the latest model Airport Base Station, and a new model xbox 360 with built-in wireless. I have a separate 5ghz N network on the base station configured that the 360 used to be able to connect to with no problem. Now it won't. It only connects to the 2.4ghz network also set up. I have other devices still connected to the 5ghz with no problem. I recently (last week) updated the firmware on the base station, but didn't notice the connection change on the xbox till this weekend. I've rebooted the base station to no avail.

    Any ideas? Any body else experience anything similar.

    Slim Xbox 360s only have 2.4ghz wireless, you have to use the USB wireless adapter from the old model to get 5GHz

    Well, that would explain it then. I must be losing my mind, I thought I had it connected before to the 5Ghz. Too many devices... Too many devices...
