Cynamite has put the WiFi of the new Xbox 360 "Slim" to the test and has found some problems in wireless networks with "high safety standards". See the article for details.
It's just a common fact. PS3, DS, PSP everything will have issues with closed Nat Settings. Not sure this is news, other then to cause trouble to be honest.
if you are using the right router.
Or know how to configure your router. It isn't exactly rocket science. I had my nephew's 360S set up w/ wifi w/o a hitch for 3 weeks now. I can distinctly hear him screaming his lungs off on Mw2 even though he is in the basement *sighs*
are the losers ?
is your nephew 'green' by any chance..? q:
Mountain out of a mole hill.
Edit I have a Netgear Dual band N router. I use WPA as well as MAC filtering for security. The box handles this just fine. But yeah if you have no access to your network router (which appears to be the case with these guys in office) you could run into issues. Whoever titled this N4G article is retarded.
Flamebait article :)
You can use WPA2 with the new 360 as well, but typically the problem is that there's another device in the house that doesn't support it. WPA is widely enough supported, even by older devices. MAC filtering should be done by all as well as registered IPs for each device by MAC address. Keep things nice and neat and greatly improve security. Both are very easy to do with any wireless router made in the last 5 years.
0oAngeluso0 just proved that this is article useless. I know right? crazy!
"In networks with high security standards issues get the console when connecting to Xbox Live" So in a highly secured and tied down network, the Xbox 360 S can't connect? But it works fine at home? Sounds like a user error! Talk about grasping at straws for hits.
agree with this lass
I also had problems.
From the same people that recently found out that the 360 scratches discs if you move it while it's loading. They're like the german version of hiphopgamer.
What is your problem with HipHopGamer seriously. Do not bring him up when clearly this has nothing to do with HHG, your way out of the box here. Have some respect.
Hip hop gamer is a freaking fool and a loyal sony fanboy. If he's a fanboy i have no problems with him but it's his amateurism and titles which act like honey pots for clicks.
hey agent X. Food for though. Some people don`t want the video game news world to turn into this... http://www.nationalenquirer... Can you have some respect for some of us that actually want news, and not just catchy headlines aimed at attracting vultures? I mean, I don`t want to stop Hip Hop gamer, he is allowed to do what he wants to do, it does not mean we have to like it. it is ok, in time, they will seprate as our industry grows and matures even more, and I assure yopu that people like myself will not be on the tabloid side of the fence. /on topic Am I the only one that is not suprised with this kind of problem, heck, I can`t even log my DS and PS3 or 360 through Wi-Fi if I have the highest securty filters.
People like hiphop gamer and the blog folks is the reason cliffy B and a lot of people are starting to hate videogame journalism. The catchy out of context quotes like the japanese devs which he is right about even kojima said it and i believe some high headed folks at square said it too.
Does anybody read the articles anymore...they describe the new Xbox 250gb 360 as..." IMPECCABLE "... The Sony camp have been living in a nightmare since E3. M$ just keeps dropping bombs, but we knew the new machine was a winner anyways. Halo Reach in less than 7 weeks...WoW. Sony has the Wii Move to look forward to. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Here's what Sony has in September... http://www.youtube.com/watc... BTW...look at agent below...lol. Keep the Sony dream alive. M$ will own this holiday season.
Lol i can play a game watch porn with picture in picture and fap all in the same time sony is king.
What's with all these problems with the slim; scratching disc's, wi-fi problems, RROD and so forth. Does microsoft even double check on there systems or do they just say ahh who cares lets just release the slims and get our money
some consoles are bound to have some problems. name me a console were everything is perfect 100% of the time on every console? exactly you cant. scatching disks;solution install your games. you have 250 gb HDD wi-fi problems; this is the only article iv ever seen with this issue plus it isnt evan english(not that it demerits it). havnt seen a slim RROD death yet personally. as for microsoft releasing the slim, all companies are after money atleat micro added features not took them away(cough ps3 slim cough) edit* @ dragonelite, lol this is n4g descriptions are useless, you should know that only headlines and titles are the things worth reading/s lol i know n4g is lie that. take a look at this lol --> http://n4g.com/news/318291/...
Did you even read the article. Its has no problem with wifi. They couldn't connect to the router at their office because of security protocols to be even more precise blocked ports which the 360 needs. Later in the article they say the slim works perfect in a household router with not blocked off ports. The new slim cant even rrod because it's has a auto shut off mechanism when overheated. Yeah only claim on scratching disks was that monkey that ignored the warning on the slim.
That sucks. Hoped they'd manage it with the new 250GB model.
Talk about damage control geez lol
360 Defense Force ASSEMBLE!!
Assemble for what reason? From what I can tell, and I'm sure that with your wisdom you'll correct me if I'm wrong? This is not a problem with the 360s, and more to do with their router and network settings.
Only console with Wireless N...
hahah title dont count mate
"Only console with Wireless N... " Would people want a wireless G internally from the get go or have an internal wireless N adapter 5 years later? You decide. I think they both are good and it's a good idea that MS added it internally. It matters more with the router than the adapter imo. A N router is a must but either G or N adapter is fine really. But as long as you can have a stable online experience that's all the matters no matter what you use/have.
"A N router is a must but either G or N adapter is fine really." What! There's no-way I could utilise my 50mps connection with a G adapter.
True but you still going to get your ass handed to you by me using a G adapter online while you use your N setup. But then again we both going to get blown away by someone using a wired connection. Me against the world.
Incredible, they are in full force, disagreeing with facts, lying like in 2006, just for some consoles sold in the us, just pathetic weak dumb casuals gamers, it's just a frustration revenge (short one) after all the games they did'nt have, all the sells ps3>xbox all the year (software, and hardware) http://www.vgchartz.com/art... :) it's really sad too see that kind of brainless people, happy for one months sells, not for a good console, or good games, but only because they wanted the ps3 doomed, and unfortunaltly ps3 killed them since 2008, for games, graphics, sells, and inovations (bluray, 3D, eyetoykinectmove).. why are you defending the mediocrity, the non-free online, dumb accessories, if you don't work for ms ?
@ n4gno Does Sony sign your paycheck or are you slobbing them off for free? I bet it's for free.
Nice title change.
I do not see any problem here...
Reading the article, there is no problems really except in limited cases, it actually says its on par with its competitors. But hey, if your making up headlines, why not make it something stupid.
And later on N4G Germans discover the 360s breaks when thrown out of the window Desperate pathetic tubes
Now that I'm reading the Article ... THE GUYS FRICKING SAID THE WIFI IS IMPECCABLE in most cases. What the hell, nobody even read the damn article. LMAO! But it's good to know that any sane person can come into a thread on N4G, read the article, then read the comments, and determine who's an idiot and who's not. Really, some of you guys try to behave as if your "up" with the subject, but your stupidity is showing.
Don't have a slim and even if I did I wouldn't be using Wifi.
wired pwns wi-fi every second of the week. FACT
Title says it all. It shiny, it runs even when spinning the dvd very quietly and unlinke Sony the have added hardware from the base console to slim edition. I only wished they had released this one first time around
Every legitimate site that has reviewed the new 360 has walked away very impressed. It cannot Red Ring anymore as it employs the same heat/shut down protection as the PS3 and PC, its quiet, it has the latest wireless widely available, and its striking in its design. Sorry, joke sites like this can say what they want, but its FUD pure and simple.
And you are one of those guys MS camp. Halo Reach will only sells copy's not systems. MS drop no bombs, they drop faulty crappy hardware. ----------------------------- ------------------------------- -------------------- EDIT: 120FPS "Just like your mouth drops klinckers when you talk" It sounds, you have allready have it. ----------------------------- ------------------------------- -------------------- Clizzz Those reviews are just the same as the 360 fat, come on no other console scratch dics, even you are shake your console it won't scratch like every 360 harwdare. Halo is a FPS for 360 hardcore fans like you and your friends, so why will you buy another 360 with Reach? , youre are so funny i like that :) First of all, 'm happy i own a 360S, it's just re-purse for me just like other Millions 360 oweners will buy another 360S. But if you reject those facts, sure you make your self look like a Joker.
LOL, all the reviews of the Xbox 360 250GB Slim have been favorable reviews. People are impressed with the fact that MSFT added in hardware and kept the price the same. And how would you know how Halo: Reach will sell. I'll wait till we have numbers. Between a Halo: Reach bundled 250 GB Slim and the new Slim Arcade, you may find yourself (unpleasantly LOL) surprised.
I was impressed they sold and it cost so much without that "hardware" initially -_-
Just like your mouth drops klinckers when you talk
probley has a suky router....mines work fine and the router is down stairs and five rooms away from my slim
Whoever posted this is engaging in Yellow Journalism with the title change. Conclusion: "Whether in movies or gaming operations, the integrated adapter, the new Xbox 360 "Slim" makes his service impeccable."
This has nothing to do with problems with the Wifi and is all based on oppinion of someone "testing" the console. There isn't an outcry like for the Iphone 4 and I see no facts beside "Opening up NAT settings will probably make it work". Waste of my time!
Poor journalism, with a headline for hits. Seriously this isn't a 360 issue, it's his network not allowing the right ports for the 360.
I heard if you put the 360S in a tub of water when its on it frys. also heard if you wrap the whole thing in foil you will lose wifi. I mean if I want to play video games on the NASDAQ network my box should let me...
this happens to PS3 too -_-
"High Security" network are going to have WiFi issues with any device. Hence why they are high security. Also, stop linking to sites translated from German. The translations are terrible.
This is THE best built console - EVER! And these flaming Sony Jock-riders are reaching for anything! Next they'll say the 360 S wasn't packaged right. ****ATTENTION All Sony Jock-riders**** Plz press the disagree button below to show how pathetic you are! And dopn't forget to steal more bubbles! Thank You, for you cooperation.
More people looking for reasons to hate 360, find another reason because it doesnt red ring, and the Wifi is fine.
PS3 SLIM > XBOX SLIM
X-360s isn't even a slim it's still a fat ass.
Well numpty, it is not called Xbox360 slim, or is that too much to fathom
This site should really be titled n4f.
wow so now handicap people are making articles that common sense says is obvious nice, i swear the IQ drops on this site by the day
It's in the nature od sony fanbys to destroy anything good about other consoles. The article is trash and the people doing the testing are dumb as a box of rocks.
Agree if you have a 360, wii, ps3 and gaming pc and u don't care about all the fucking fanboy wars! I don't care about wireless N my router is G lol BTW... My elite (got it today) drops the disc everytime i push the button and it closes the tray. ITs the the vertical position, is it better to have laying down or standing up?
