    Xbox series s unable to connect to xbox network


    Logged off the console last night everything was fine. This morning its unable to connect to the network.

    Tried doing a console reset (power cycle) and then tried a reboot. Now it wont load up as it gets stuck at an update screen during the re set up phase.

    Help?

    :)

    When I need to connect to a new network via WiFi my x box series s will refresh but nothing will pop up

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Xbox forum.

    It seems that your Xbox Series S will detect nothing after trying to connect to another network. Let's work on this together in finding the best possibl esolution to this issue.

    There are a few things you can try to resolve this issue:



    1. Make sure your Xbox Series S is within range of your WiFi network and that the network is turned on and broadcasting.



    2. Restart your Xbox Series S and try connecting to the network again.



    3. Check that your WiFi network is not hidden. If it is, you will need to manually enter the network name and password.



    4. Try resetting your network settings on your Xbox Series S. To do this, go to Settings > Network > Network settings > Advanced settings > Alternate MAC address > Clear.



    I hope this helps. Looking forward for your response!

    Sincerely,

    Leonardo_Y

    Xbox series s disconnects and won't reconnect to wifi saying password doesn't match when it does

    Hello Stoop14mc , My name is Khaji I am an independent advisor and I will be happy to help you today.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing Wi-Fi connection issues with your Xbox Series S. Here are some steps you can take to try to fix this issue:

    Check your Wi-Fi password: Make sure you're entering the correct password when trying to connect your Xbox Series S to your Wi-Fi network. You can check the password on your router or ask your Internet provider to provide you with the correct password if you have forgotten it.
    Restart your router: Turn off your Wi-Fi router and disconnect it from the power source for a few minutes. Then turn it back on and wait for it to reboot completely. Once the router is online again, try connecting your Xbox Series S to the Wi-Fi network.
    Forget Wi-Fi on Xbox: Go to the network settings on your Xbox Series S and look for the option to forget the Wi-Fi network you're trying to connect to. Then try to connect again by entering the correct password. This can help resolve incorrect authentication issues.
    Check Wi-Fi signal strength: Make sure the Xbox Series S is close enough to the router to receive a strong, stable Wi-Fi signal. If you are far from the router, the signal may be weak and cause connection problems. Try moving the Xbox Series S closer to the router and see if that fixes the issue.
    Update your router's firmware: Check if firmware updates are available for your Wi-Fi router and, if necessary, update it to the latest version. Firmware updates often fix compatibility issues and improve connection stability.
    Reset Xbox Series S network settings: If the above steps do not resolve the issue, you can try resetting the network settings on your Xbox Series S. Go to the console's network settings and look for the option to reset settings network. Please note that this will erase any custom network settings and you will need to reconfigure your Wi-Fi connection from scratch.

    Is Xbox One S unable to connect to 5Ghz networks broadcasting on DFS channels (e.g.: 116)?

    Hello Etanarvazac R, My name is David. I am an independent advisor, happy to help you today.

    Yes, it is possible that the Xbox One S (XO) may have limitations when it comes to connecting to 5GHz networks broadcasting on DFS (Dynamic Frequency Selection) channels, such as channel 116. DFS channels are subject to regulatory requirements because they share the same frequency range as certain radar systems, and as a result, devices need to meet specific criteria to operate on these channels.

    The Xbox One S and Xbox Series S may have different Wi-Fi hardware capabilities and firmware support, which could explain why the Xbox Series S (XS) is able to detect and connect to the network on DFS channel 116 while the Xbox One S (XO) cannot.

    To confirm if the Xbox One S is indeed unable to connect to DFS channels, you can try the following steps:

    Change your router's 5GHz channel: Set your router to a non-DFS channel that is within the supported range of the Xbox One S (e.g., channels 36-48 or 149-165). This will help determine if the Xbox One S can connect to the network on a non-DFS channel.

    Update the Xbox One S firmware: Make sure your Xbox One S is running the latest system software and firmware updates. Sometimes, firmware updates can include improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity and compatibility.

    Best regards.
