COD server disconnect with wireless adapter

I just received my refurbished 360 last week and everytime since then I can't play a single live match on COD 4 & 5 with out a server disconnect. My wifi laptop works fine and so does my desktop. Is it my signal form the wireless router? or is it COD servers? why did I go from a perfect live experience with the old 360 to horrible connection with the new one? any thoughts? I'm going crazy.

Hi there,

Its to do with your router, every now and again your router settings will turn to strict, as you proberly not usings a xbox compatible router, dont worry not many people do, i dont neither.

All you have to do is just turn off the router for 30secs and turn it back on, this will allow you to play on live again.

Personally if you can, connect it to the routher via a ethernet cable, it provided a much faster connection.

I was playing call of duty and it disconnected me and now it says notice,you must have an active network connection to play xbox live or system link matches.how do i fix it?


The problem seems to be a random disconnection from your home network. Try unplugging and replugging your wireless adapter or Ethernet cable. If the problem persists, try enabling and disabling these connections from your Console settings on the Xbox Live Dashboard.

Says im connected & when i go to play the game i get disconnected


This could just be the games server, a couple of weeks ago people were having the same problem with cod mw2, this just took a few hours for them to sort out, they are probably just doing maintenance, could he play another game, or read a book ; )
Let me know if this was the case with a thumbs up, or comment if you need further assistance.

Whilst playing cod modenwarfare on live with


It's Your internet. Wireless internet gets a lot of interference. It's worse still if you don't have good internet speed. You need average 5 mega bits 8 is recommened though.

It can also be that the person who is host of game and you can't connect well to each other and so this happens. It can also be the game servers as well.(though this is very unlikely) dont worry you are not only one who gets this problem.

It is possible the servers are down. If you can connect to LIVE, this is probably not your problem.

360 Connection


it means u where disconnected from teh router your xbox was connected to.. id try a thicker cat 5 cable(ethernet). it also means u could have a weak connection to the live servers, like alot of ur connection speed is being hoged by another computer. cuz my friend has a hp desktop that takes majority of his bandwidth and it really lags him down on live.. that usually means disconnected is all. or the host cancled the game, like backed out.

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
