Or, if you want to set it up with the XBox, then

First connect your USB wireless adapter to any available port for USB If you have problem with your USB port use the USB extender, that is already included. This way your wireless will go smooth without interference.Make the connection with the wireless adapter and the USB extender and then plug in the USB extender in the port for USB.Put the AA batteries in the battery bay of the controller.Press the Xbox button on the controller until you see that the lights are on.On your wireless adapter you will see a sync button, press it and then hold it for a little while so you can pair the controller with the wireless adapter.The light you will see on your Xbox controller shows the pairing status, this way you will know if the Xbox controller and the wireless adapter are successfully pairedIf the light flashes slowly then the pairing is not successfulIf the light flashes rapidly than the pairing is still in progressIf the light is solid than you are finished
