Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox Live Can't Connect to Friends

Hi -
My Xbox live works, but for some reason I cannot play my friends online. I am working with 2 routers. The modem hooks into a Linksys router (RT31P2) internet port, which then feeds an ethernet cable from a port into the modem slot of a Belkin F5D8223 router. The Xbox comes from here. I have opened up the necessary ports for the Belkin router. Is there any way I can fix this? Thanks!

Hi akemccarthy

you may need to open the ports for the linksys Router aswell
because the linksys links the belkin to the internet there using a shared connection

once youve fowarded the ports properly check to see if you have enabled the UPNP on both of the routers if they have any

heres a website showing how to port forward the ports you need opening

My son has created an online ea account to play football on his xbox 360. he can't play because it is telling him he is to young. can i create another account..


Yes, you should be able to create a new XBox Live account for your son.

When you create a new XBox Live account, make sure to edit the date of birth so it is at least 18 years old. This way any and all restrictions on his online gaming experience will be nullified.

Hope that helps!

How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?



Hi,

Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

  • 2

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

  • 6

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.


  • Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    My xbox is connecting to my Internet but my Internet won't connect to xbox live


    double all connections and connectors, Power cycle, both modem and Router for bout a min(unplug and wait) hook back up and try testing connection to xbox live again. that should do it. Unless your gold is expired but it should at least hook up to live you just won't get to play online with friends and what-not. if that does not do the trick get on the phone with your internet service provider

    On my xbox 360 i can't connect to my friend and he can't connect to me and he told me i needed to change my router settings and i don't know how too and i have a DI 624


    You trying to do a system link? If so then you just need to use the network cable you got with the xbox360 put one end in your computer and the other in your friends xbox. This will link your two xbox's without the need of going through the router. If you want to use the router to connect each other you will have to set up the network IP addresses that are set for your network manually. I can't tell you how to do this as I don't know anything about what network setting you using. If you want to connect to your friend over xbox live to play together sign up for select join xbox live from your avartar screen and sign up for xbox live you both will need an xbox live gold account. Once your gold accounts have been set up add each other as friends and then you or your friend can invite each other to games just remember that you both need a copy of the game you want to play in any case.

    My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


    Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

    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.

    Xbox live is not working it keeps coming up with 'you need an active connection to play online or system link matches' but my connection is fi and none of my friends can play as well?


    Suggestion: <b>MTU Error</b>

    This issue occurs if your router or the gateway is incompatible with Xbox Live, or if your router or the gateway has an incorrect MTU setting. Note: Xbox Live requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. We recommend that you try out the steps shown below.

    Things to try:
    1. Ensure that you have properly setup your connection to Live by using the Connectivity Wizard http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/connectionmethods/webconnectivitywizard.htm
    2. Visit the following Web site to determine whether you have the correct firmware version that has been certified as compatible: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/connect/routerlanding.htm
    3. See the router or gateway instruction manual for information about how to change the MTU setting to 1364, to do this, or to determine whether your router supports this feature, see the router support documentation or contact support for your router device.
    4. If you share a connection with a router and a modem, try a direct connection without the router.
