No connection ATALl to internet/live

When i turn my Xbox360 premium on, I try to connect to XBL, and it comes up with a error, saying that my Xbox cannot obtain an IP adress from my router/modem. It suggests I restart my Router/modem and try again, which I have done, and the problem still exists. I cannot connect to XBL atall. Anyone have an answer? thanks in advance

Okay check the cable of the xbox make sure its not broken or KINKED could have a broken wire somewhere make sure the wire work try the wire on a computer to see if it gets an IP.
Check the connector too, make sure none of the wire are lossen up, if so then replace the connectors or buy a new wire. make sure its Cat 5 or Cat 5E. doesnt have to be cat 6. thats overkill.

if its wireless then check if your router has WEP or WAP enabled, then you have to get the Key to get into the router, and make sure the SSID of the router is correct.

Hope this helps

Good Luck

My xbox live no longer works? it would not let me go in xbox live at all. Is it possible that someone block or hack my connection to the xbox live? because its not internet problem its the xbox live that...


No one but Microsoft can stop you from connecting to XBL[Xbox Live]. Either you ran out of your gold subscription, or you were cheating on a game and Microsoft banned you. That's if you say it's not your internet.

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

I can't get xbox live on my xbox it says i have to have a wired or wireless connection with xbox live. I just want to redeem a code to get xbox live. I can't get it


You need to have your Xbox connected to the internet to get XBL. Connect wirelessly or with an Ethernet cable and update and then you can get XBL.

I am trying to set up my xbox live and it will not connect to the college internet


Theirs a chance that your college is blocking the use of XBL.. If that is the case you can actually bridge your internet connection using a laptop/desktop/mac etc.. so you could either try that or give a little more information on what is happening..

I can't set my xbox360 to the internet


try running the diagnostic to see what the problem is. Could be a router / modem error or simply XBL is down.

Also reset your modem / router leaving the power off for at least 30 seconds then reconnect the router 1st, wait another 30 seconds then plug in the modem.

I can't connect to xbox live 'cause of an udate loop.


You could maybe chalk it up to bad connection or maybe the box is banned. You could try downloading the update from Microsoft's website and update that way.

Xbox live 'internet' connection failing.


This will be why...

you need to wire the xbox to the router.

if you wire it to your laptop then its just a network connection between the laptop and the xbox.

Im not to sure but if you keep the same setup you may be able to share the internet connection.
