My neighbor has one from Verizon and it has wifi.

If yours is the black thing with antennas all you may need is the wifi for the 360.

It's 802.11g so that's about as good as it gets.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
