Help deciding about xbox live please

I am thinking of getting xbox live but i am worried it wont work
i have virgin media broadband which is 20mb and a motorola surfboard SB5101E modem connected to an ethernet cable

i dont mind disconnecting the ethernet cable from my modem to put the xbox cable in but i would like to know if this will allow xbox live to work without any problems
thanks :) x

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?


For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit www.xbox.com.

    Tip

    Check your broadband speed and report it as a Slow/Not Spot


    I have a maximum download (connection) speed of 3.5MB at my exchange which is a Local Loop Unbundling or LLU from which I live about 5km as the crow files.

    My expected maximum will be only 70% of this at about 2.5MB due to signal to noise ratio loss on the BT line, dont bother trying to change your MTU or any TCP tweak settings you will probably cause more problems with the speed becoming lower maybe even cutting yourself off your own broadband connection

    However most ISP use Local Loop Unbundling is the process by which third party networkoperators are able to install equipment in to BT telephone exchanges in order to provide their own services without having to touch BT's network. Only the copper pair from the exchange to the premises, which remains the property of BT, is used by the third party. Use SamKnowsBest to check what options you have at your local BT exchange


    BT copper line MAX is only 8MB irrespective of the the LLU that you use this means your ISP hardware.

    Optical Cables MAX is 20MB and only Virgin Media in the UK can use this transmission medium.


    I used to get only 750kbps which is not even 1MB now I can get double that between about 1500kbps - 1800kbps which is still only 1.8MB depending upon the time of day.

    Also make sure that your connection is not shared with another user they will steal your bandwidth ensure that if you are using wireless use a WEP or even better a WPA-PSK encryption. Close all instances of P2P or FTP uploading during the speed test.

    http://www.speed.io/index_en.html

    My Results as a comparision

    http://speed.io/backend/result/24801225?pID=project1 750 Kbps
    http://speed.io/backend/result/27957779?pID=project1 1500 Kbps
    http://speed.io/backend/result/27959284?pID=project1 1800 Kbps

    There is not a lot you can do other than report this slow speed to this website the more they can build up a picture of the bad or NOT SPOT areas then your ISP will have to act to ensure that you don't move your service to another provider.

    http://www.broadband-notspot.org.uk/

    NOTE:
    If you have the same problem as me then unless you can get Virgin Media Cable that can supply upto 20MB download speeds then BT maximum 8MB speed will be your limit expect to get about 4MB using the BT copper wired pair and your ISP's own router if you live over 5 miles from the exchange.

    Cant get a signal on xbox live via a D-link wireless router & Virgib broadband


    virgin use fibre optic, make sure that your router is for CABLE connections, not ADSL.

    Check that uPNP is enabled on the router, can your xbox find other things on the network? at what stage in the process does it fail?

    I have zyxel nbg334w bought before xmas 08 can connect pc to internet with it but although wireless laptops and games consoles find it still wont connect i am connected to internet via virgin media...


    Had the same problem connecting zyxel NGB334W to XBox 360. Other computers and devices would see the SSID but the XBox 360 would not. I had no luck talking to the techs at zyxel, they said it was incompatible with the wireless XBox device. Good news!!! This can be resolved. I went into the setup (192.168.1.1) / Wireless Lan / Advanced / Wireless Advanced Setup. Under the 802.11 mode set to 802.11b. Factory is 802.11b/g and this was not seen. Hope this helps you out.

    Trying to connect to xbox live,have full broadband signal on my xbox but my xbox wont download an update to get on line, the message says can't download the update.please test your connection in...


    If you have a cd burner on your computer you can follow this link
    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/console/systemupdates.htm and it gives you full instructions on how to burn the disk and update your xbox. If that does not help with connecting try going to the system tab of your dashboard and run the initial setup. Dont worry you wont lose all your downloads and profiles, it just changes all settings back to the default.
