I am 14 and was playing xbox live, it shut me offline and when i diagnosed the proble it said my mtu setting need to be at least 1364, how can i fix that?


MTU is the maximum size (in bytes) a protocol is able to send. Not super familiar with xbox but I would check under your network settings. Although I doublt the xbox will allow you to set this. So the next step would be to check your router settings. You will need the following
  • A PC or laptop
  • Ethernet cable
You will need a computer plugged in via ethernet into your router.
  • Open a browser and enter the gateway address in the address bar
  • You can obtain your gateway address by going to a command prompt and typing "ipconfig"
  • Login to your router (if you've never setup the router with a login it will probably be a generic login such as admin/, admin/admin, / or /admin
  • Look for your MTU setting, this is generally under the advanced settings
  • Set it to 1500 if it is not already.
Please comment with how the xbox is connected to your network as well Comment back if you need more assistance
Another cause of xbox live booting you is if someone logs into your xbox live account else where as xbox live only allows for one login at any give time.

For some reason i cant get connection to my internet through my router i have to be plugged in to my modem so i cant play xbox live how. how do i fix it?


reset the router, if that doesnt work access the router settings with 192.168.0.1 and enter password, and see if the settings are good, you could just change them to default and everything should go the way it was factory set

I want to open my NAT so i can play xbox live


Okay. If you look at Network connections on Start menu (XP) open network connections...
Then select the on you are connected to... (LAN or WLAN) Click the support tab and you will see something like "192.168.1.1"
Well type that into your browser, if it ask you for a password the default is normaly "admin" or "1234" (No quotes)
Temper with the "Gaming" or "Wireless connections" or "port forwarding"
If that does not work, are you sure you got xbox live gold?
(or hit the reset button on the back of your router)

I can't connect to xbox live , it tells me to test my connection , its going fine , halfway to through the xbox live bar then an update pops up , if i say i dont want it , it signs me out of xbox live


have you tested the Internet connection? what are you using wireless or wired? this isue comes up sometimes when you use wireless and it looses signal... this can happen if the xbox is too far from the wireless router OR there is interfearence ebtween the 2 devices (microwave, wireless phones, etc.)

Will not let me sign up to xbox live for first time help!!!!


The only way for you to be able to play XBox LIVE, is to pay for it monthly. So, check and see if you paid, if you have, please call the number on your XBox warrenty. :) I hope this helps.

Also, you need internet in order to play XBox LIVE as well, so you might want to call your providers if you have paid your bill.

I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
Tips:
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need:
  • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)
