So why do you think the Xbox One X wireless worked after 8 months of non use, was it a placement problem causing signal blocking ?
I remember at the time, it wouldn't detect internet period like it couldn't scan for it, then it would come up with an error screen about a mac address something or other. Moving the device for several days to different locations did not alleviate the issue. I went ahead and reset the unit to its original factory condition. Nothing I did worked. It seemed like a hardware issue. My conclusion (just a theory) is I had devices competing for the connection and one knocked the other one completely off somehow. Somebody wasn't playing nice. I would have had 4 apple devices, a few PS4's connected at the same time. I'm thinking the Xbox tried to mess with another device, or something interfered with it. That in turn caused a defense mechanism to kick in somewhere and some devices went offensive and Xbox went defensive. Since then I have disconnected the PS4's because I haven't been using them. I connected the Switch which wasn't connected before, and I'm still running the same Apple products. If it was a hardware issue it shouldn't just start magically working now. I still think it was software related even though I zapped it as well.
...and back to my post on the way that I'm playing through the Halos. I played each one on their original release dates (except for the plastic wrapped 5).
