Hi Frederic! Have you tried resetting the controller? Have you tried any other controllers to see if they work? Also, are you sure the battery in your controller is good and it's charged up?

Hello my controller has a hard time working from 4 feet away from my console and disconnecting. Im thinking of doing this hopefully it works. Is the bluetooth and wifi part the same thing because my wifi doesnt seem to pick up my wireless router.
