This error is related to the update of the xbox360 website or a router problem.
Try disable all encryption and MAC filtering on the router and see if you can connect unprotected.

Hey i have a thomson TG782T and i am trying to connect an xbox 360 elite to xbox live through an ethernet cable and i am having the mtu error come up. i already have an xbox 360 slim connected which works...


Maximum transmission unit is 1500, but for the Xbox 360 it "must" be set within the range 1364 - 1492
Since there's no MTU settings for the TG782T. your only choice is to replace it with routers like Linksys, Belkin, Netgear.

BT HomeHub wireless router which cannot connect to the XBox 360


your router may have incorect connection settings. what i mean is that your router may have security on that rejects connecting to adapter. check if the xbox can connect to the internet via ethernet cable. this will tell for sure if the 1 the adapter cannot read the signal or 2 the adapter is not able read any signals. to test if its the adapter, try searching for other signals.if you find any other signal it means your router. is rejecting to send the signal to the xbox.

Having problems with connecting xbox 360 to this router. Had no problems with my PC connecting to internet using the quick setup method. But, xbox does not connect, it fails it's network test.


Are you trying to connect X-box to the network ?
I believe you know all the wireless settings of the router.
If not then check the wireless settings of the router. Make Sure that the wireless MAC filter is disabled. You may need to reduce the MTU on the router and open the ports on the router

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

Connecting router to xbox live


To change the router's MTU, do the following steps.

1. Open Internet Explorer and type http://192.1680.1.1 on the address bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. By default, no username and password is admin. If the default password didn't work, try to type your own password for the router.
3. When you get to the setup page, under the Setup Tab, look for MTU. By default it is set to Auto 1500. Just click on Manual and set your preferred value.
4. Click on Save Settings at the bottom of the page.

You're all set.

360 mtu test keeps failing


Access the routers setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 (ip address of the router) on the address bar on IE.

then on basic setup page at the bottom part of the page you will see MTU normally its on auto,
to change the value set it to manual. ask your isp what is their prefferred value for the mtu you can go as high as 1300 to 1500.

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 test is failing


I've had the same problem and struggled with it for hours... If your on the Comcast network, there seems to be problems with adjusting MTU. I have a Dell 2350 router and that particular router cannot have MTU modified. Also, sometimes the MTU is effected by computers or phones in the house being on. One more suggestion, try a gaming router. Good ones start at 90 dollars, somewhat expencive but well worth it.
