Network connection failed when trying to connect to xbox live
I have a Linksys WRT300N Router. I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360. The port it is plugged into in the router is not lit up,it seems to not be reconizing it. I called Linksys they set up a port for my Xbox. It still does not detect a network connection. Can you please help me with this problem, is it my Xbox?
Re: network connection failed when trying to connect to...
You may want to try the following:
Use a different ethernet cable. Reset the router and xbox by powering them down for at least a minute. Run the connection wizard under Xbox Live. If the test passes you should be connected to the web. If not you might have a problem with either the router or the xbox.

connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360
console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem
and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your
With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one
of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your
PC's Ethernet port.
With the third Ethernet cable, connect
one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the
other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to
configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the
router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.
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
reset the router the make sure ur firewall is set to low if that does not work go into ur modems settings open internet browser type192.168.1.254 and go to wireless then custom services click in the box scroll to the bottom and select xbox live then u will c another page saying select host open box selxct the bottom one then click enable and try connecting again
How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
