    Xbox One wireless USB adapter doesn't pair with Xbox One controllers


    Hello,


    I recently had an issue with my computer and had to completely reinstall Windows on my system.

    After this issue, I tried to reconnect my Xbox One controllers using my USB wireless receiver and noticed they didn't automatically pair. I thought it was the normal behavior since I juste restarted and simply had to use the "link" button to pair everything back.
    However, this did absolutely nothing and my controller both blink like when they are "searching" for something to connect to.
    My USB receiver also blinks like it usually does when it is waiting for pairing.

    But despite those blinks, nothing ever pairs and my controller keeps searching indefinitely.


    I have tried absolutely everything you support suggests:

    - Rebooting with the device connected

    - Rebooting with the device not connected

    - Putting it in another port

    - Putting it in another port after rebooting

    - Putting it in another port before rebooting

    - Uninstalling the driver

    - Forcing Windows Update to look for updates

    - Asking the device manager to look for a driver update

    - Trying to connect my controllers with a usb cable worked fine

    - Changing the batteries of the controllers

    - I don't have a Xbox One console so I can't try to connect them to the console to see if it works

    - I tried with both of my controllers and they have the same exact behavior


    The wireless receiver is an official product purchased on Amazon and it is properly recognized by Windows it shows up in the device manager, under Network Adapter.

    It is named "Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows", version 1.0.46.1 07/Nov/2017



    Everywhere on the internet and on the support, I see "It should work without doing anything". Well it doesn't and I have no idea what I could do to repair things.

    :)
