    Default Original Xbox Wifi Network Adapter MN740 AC Adapter

    Hey guys,

    I have question about the original Xbox Wifi adapter. I bought one the other day for $7 bucks (like new in box), but it did not include the AC adapter. I googled around, and have found the original specs of the adapter to be:

    (DC) 6V, 1.0A

    Does anyone out there have one of these adapter on hand, and can you check the polarity on it for me? I would greatly appreciate it!


    Also, I bought a replacement adapter for $1... but the specs aren't an exact match..

    the specs on the replacement are: (DC) 5V, 1.0A.

    Can anyone give me a firm answer as to weather this adapter would be compatible with my Network Adapter? Would the 1 less Volt destroy my unit? I would really like to know.. as I haven't tried it out yet without hearing anyone's suggestions first.

    here's the Network adapter I'm talking about.

    If it works, it will be less reliable as there is less power going to the unit. It may work, it may not. Your best bet would be to hit radio shack. They will have a 6v/1a, and they'll be able to help pick out the right plug as well.

    thanks for the reply.. I've thought about going the radio shack route, but paying more for the AC adapter than the actual unit seems silly to me.

    Any hardware guru's can chime in and give me a firm answer on this? Is 1 less Volt going to break my unit?

    thanks!
