Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Xbox 360 does not directly connect to Xbox Live

When I turn on the Xbox and go sign into Xbox Live, it comes up with an error. Then when I go to troubleshoot connection there is absolutely nothing wrong with it and it then allows me to sign to Xbox Live. I have to troubleshoot the connection everytime to be able to sign into Xbox Live, and it is really annoying to do. Do you know why this is and what can I do to fix it?

    No it is connected directly to my computer using a crossover cable, and my computer's wireless is fine so there is no problem with that. Thanks for trying anyway!

                      You will need to recover your Gamertag.

                        To recover your gamertag, you need the associated Windows Live ID and password for your Xbox LIVE account.
                      1. If you're signed into Xbox LIVE with another gamertag, press the Guide button, and then press X on your controller to sign out.
                      2. Press the Guide button again, and select Recover Gamertag.
                      3. Select Recover Gamertag again.

                    When using my x-box the msg cant sign into messanger keeps appearing what can i do to resolve this

                    Hi Stephen!

                    When your Xbox 360 signs you into Xbox Live, it automatically attempts to sign you into Live Messenger, as they use the same communications systems since Microsoft bought MSN.

                    To resolve this error message popping up every time you sign in:
                    1. Sign into Xbox Live,
                    2. In the Xbox Dashboard, scroll over to your Gamer profile,
                    3. Find the "Auto Sign-In" tab,
                    4. Under "Windows Live Messenger", check "Disable".
                    Hope this helps!

                    Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine

                    If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

                    1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
                    2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
                    3. Choose to download the game update.

                    If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

                    Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
                    This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

                    Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

                    Results should come up (for wired router)

                    Network Adapter - Wired
                    Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
                    IP Address - Confirmed
                    DNS - Confirmed
                    MTU - Confirmed
                    ICMP - Confirmed
                    XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
                    NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

                    If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

                    If results come out to be
                    ''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
                    After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

                    Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

                    If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.

                    Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

                    Best of luck
