    So im trying to set up a switch on my wireless adapter on my 360. I followed the tutorials Ive been trying for a while and it seems that the device isnt getting enough power. It turns on for a second then turns off. Before I go on I want to see if anyone else has had this problem and if they fixed it.

    It did, but I think I just found a short. So im gonna use real wire striipers instead of a knife this time.

    EDIT: Definlty a short, I just cut a huge section of the exposed wire then rewired it with some new an now turns on. Now I have 6 foot cable attached for easy acess.

    Im now trying a smaller wire like 4 inches. Im still having resitance problems. It only works if I have the two green wires hooked up directly.

    EDIT: Only works with about 1 1/2 inches of heavy gauge wire.

    Pretty much all I did was solder the wires to a switch that I found laying in one of my old part boxes.
