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?

    Are you connecting the XBOX to the one of the 4 ports of the router?

    Have you tried using a different Ethernet cable to connect your XBOX to the router?
    If you connect your XBOX directly to your modem, is it working?



    Please update me about this matter.

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.

Trying to get XBox 360 Live to work and connection fails....I'm at a loss trying to figure out what to do


Check your XBox (network settings) and make sure it's getting valid IP from the Linksys router.

Normally, opening ports (port forwarding) on the router for that specific game should resolve this.

Hope this helps! Just reply back if you needed step by step guide.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. 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 router.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. 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.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. 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.

Hope this helps!

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router


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.

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers


  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. 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
Hope this helps!
