Try Connecting to live and let it do the connection test and post what it says and we can get more of an idea on how to solve your issue..

And when your plugging it in keep xbox off and than when its in turn xbox on that might be it.

And your using the grey chord right? The one that goes from the xbox to the router? Or xbox to modem?

Why dose my profile keep signing me out when putting on games and when trying to play some games


Sometimes it may depend on the connectivity of the level your internet. A while ago I had a lot of problems with internet and like you, my games often crashed.

The easiest thing is to check your connection and make sure you are getting a strong signal.

On Xbox 360 to check your connection just follow this link:

Troubleshoot Xbox 360 connection to Xbox Live

While it's a lot to read it will help you in the long run.

To check your speed on Xbox Live go here
Slow experience on Xbox Live (for Xbox One)

You can also check out to see if Xbox Live may be the problem. By going to this link.
Xbox Live Status

The next thing, try replacing your router, when I bought my new router my problems stopped. You can also upgrade to a newer modem to DOCSIS 3.0. This of course depends on your internet speed. If you are below 20mbs I wouldn't worry about upgrading just yet. But upgrading never hurts. However, if you are trying to get 50mbs or more DOCSIS 2.0 bottlenecks. While I am no expert on modems. I think the DOCSIS 2.0 modem bottlenecks around 38mbs.

To Check your speed on the internet, this is the site most people go to.

Speedtest net by Ookla The Global Broadband Speed Test

Use whichever server you wish. I usually do multiple ones to see how it differs.

Frezzing up loosing conection


If your Xbox is doing this a lot, check your internet connection on your Xbox. If there is any triangle with ! or any ! point in there it means you have NAT problem. Which will make you lose connection. In order to counter that, you will have to go into your router and fix your NAT by going into port forwarding and putting different types of numbers, which you can look up nearly anywhere on the internet. Just search Port Forwarding numbers for Xbox 360 and it should show what you need to put in.

If you don't have any problems with your NAT, it could be your router is older. I would recommend buying a newer one.

Also this goes without saying but make sure your Xbox has plenty of room to breath and has lots of air getting to it as they do shut down and freeze if they are too hot.

I have xbox live gold menbership. i disconeted from the router . now when i connect it.. it wunt let me sing in... why and how do i fix this porblem... i put my ip adress and all n it only work wen it want...


First verify that your internet connection is working (login from a computer on your network)

Then try logging in with your XBOX ID and password at xbox.com - this will make sure you have the correct username and password.

Run the xbox live connection test from your xbox 360 console. If the connection fails before the step that says "Internet Connectivity", you have a problem with the XBOX's connection to your network and you will need to re-check your settings.

If it says you have a valid internet connection, you may want to re-enter your ID and password as you did on the Xbox.com page to make sure you are using the correct ID and Password.

If all that fails, you will probably want to call microsoft to make sure your account is set up properly.

Hope this helps

My xbox wont work it is saying This game requires a system update


You need to connect your xbox to the internet, either with a wireless adapter or with a cord into the wall port. After you are connected, when the xbox turns on, it should ask if you want to install the system update. After that, you will be able to play the game.

How do i connect to live?



1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live".


applysettings.jpg3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then "Additional Settings" tab then select "Advanced settings" & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the "Alternate MAC Address" part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live". editbasic.jpg3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you'll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
automanual.jpg
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to "System" area then "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose "Test Xbox Live".
If you faced any other kind of troubles with this part failing even after you tried these steps please don't hesitate to leave a comment.
