Xbox 360 And Airport Extreme 802.11n Don't Get Along

How childish can Microsoft and Apple get? Pretty darn childish since they just don’t want to play nice with each other at all. Apple’s iTunes didn’t like Vista and now Xbox 360s don’t like Apple’s Airport Extreme 802.11n. Maybe it’s just a coincidence except it’s not; Wii and PS3 owners have not reported any problems.

Any network run on the Airport Extreme that is secured will not recognized by the 360 whether it’s WEP or WAP encrypted. Is Microsoft doing anything to help their customers? They’re telling everyone not to use Apple’s Airport Extreme or wait until the spring when a new dashboard update is available. Bummer, huh?
