My Xbox 360 has a USB wireless adapter. Now that the box has been modded with a Maximus 79 Passkey (for my Hitachi 79FK drive) I'm concerned about connecting to Xbox Live. I'm only interested in playing my backups not Xbox Live but i find all my games insist on using my profile by first connecting to Live. My only solution now is to remove the USB connection before playing games; very annoying and potentially the port will become too loose. But i still want to connect to Live in the future or when I'm not playing games.

Any solutions for me? I was hoping to either wrap something around the wireless adapter to interefer with the connection or even blocking some firewall ports if need be.

Add a passcode to your xbox live account. It will sign in to your profile, but not live automatically, if you want live, you put in the passcode smile.gif
