Phew thank God...I was about to cuss when I got that error message, because I thought "Oh no, here Comcast goes again." But I'm relieved that its because of the update. Can't wait to get rid of the stupid gamer pic and make an Avatar though.

The reason to which your MTU is failing is becuase of a serious update by Microsoft. The whole dashboard and interactive elements are being changed entirely. See this link for further details.
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/nxe/

Down time can be up to 24 hours. So sit back and enjoy single player for today

Posted on Sep 29, 2008

My MTU has failed, too. I read up and apparently everyone's MTU fails at the same time when Microsoft takes down XBL to update it, fix it, etc. When they put XBL back up your MTU should work fine again. IT'S NOT YOUR PROBLEM! Blame the evil corporation of Microsoft who made you call your ISP for no reason. Down with the the Windows and Gates (Bill that is)!

I have the same problem....It states that my router MTU settings needs to change. or contact my ISP.
Now that i know everyone is having the same problem. I feel a little better. I think microsoft must be working on this issue as we type.

Xbox sent out a warning saying it would be down today. So just take it and be happy, they are supposed to be giving out a bunch of updates currently. so we have to wait until tomorrow to get on. Man I wanted some COD4 too. haha

Not enough mtu to go to xbox live at hotel


An MTU is the largest physical packet size, measure in Bytes that a network is capable of transmitting.. If messages are larger than the MTU they are divided into smaller packets before they can be sent. All networks have different MTU's which the owner of the network set at what they want to set it at. 576 is a very common MTU if you connect through PPP. 1500 is the most common MTU for Ethernet connections. The Xbox Live system requires your network to have a certain Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). MTU values are important to the performance of online games. If this test fails, you can adjust the MTU setting on your network router or equivalent device to resolve the problem. Xbox live requires the network you use to have a maximum MTU. This is key to online gamesing. If the MTU fails then you have to adjust the router you are using. If you cannot access the router to adjust the MTU the you will not be able to play online games.

MTU fail


ok well I found a fix but it may not be simple. anyway, i got my xbox360 to work off of my girlfriends laptop by feeding internet to the laptop from the cable modem via usb and then from the laptop to the xbox360 via ethernet. just right click usb connection in network connections and click sharing tab, then activate sharing and tell it to share connection with lan connection... you can also share through wireless if your xbox is wireless. I tried running all this through a dsl wireless router and a basic hub and both of them gave ip address and mtu errors... good luck

This appears to be a common problem, most likely due to the recent Xbox Live server maintenance. Nothing we can do except for wait until Microsoft fixes things on their end.

Connection problems


MTU stands for "Maximum Transmission Connection". Some routers and/or network gateways are incompatible with Xbox LIVE, while others may be compatible but merely need to have a setting changed. If you compare your router to the list of routers at the following web address, you can confirm whether or not your hardware has been confirmed as compatible with Xbox LIVE by Microsoft:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

Whether or not your hardware is listed as compatible, it would still be a good idea to check your instruction manual for the hardware you are using and see how (if possible) to change the MTU settings. Microsoft suggests that the MTU setting should be 1364. Using untested hardware or hardware not listed as compatible may still work, however, future updates to LIVE may suddenly make your hardware incompatible, as updates to LIVE and the Xbox console are made to work with the specifications of tested and listed compatible routers and gateways.

Mtu


If you have your Xbox connected through a router, most routers, on their control panel (192.168.1.100 for example) give you the option of setting an MTU, or leaving it to default. This option is normally found on the setup page of your routers control panel.

MTU stands for maximum transmission unit, basically a speed thing.

If you can set it, change it to something above 1500 depending on how fast your internet connection is, but I am fairly certain that 1500 is the minimum that you would want to have set for xbox live.

Another way to do it is, if your router has this option, set the MTU to Automatic. That way your router (should) be able to do all of that dynamically as the need arises.

I hope this helps to solve your problem, good luck!
