Router doesn't work with xbox live

I have been using this router to connect to xbox live for over a month, then one day I can't connect to xbox live because my wireless router doesn't have a sufficient mtu setting. I don't have a user manual for the router and I want to know how to change the mtu setting.

I have a D-Link Router, with an antenna that screws off, and now won't tighten. The entire copper piece outsde the router comes out. One month ago I was able to connect to XBOX LIVE, but now It wo


yes it can be, one antenna receives(Rx) and the other transmits(Tx)
other reasons are
1.) encryption of the router is set wrong
2.) router firewall maybe blocking (put Xbox into the DMZ)
3.) router was hacked and you no longer have control of it.
4.) you have been ban by Xbox live (check your email)
5.) Xbox wifi may be damaged or off.
theres more but start with the easy ones first.

You may have a problem with your internet connection. Try and reset your router and try again.

Having trouble connecting Xbox live. Have wireless router and wireless Xbox 360 adapter. Figured out where adapter goes. Now I'm stuck.


Is the router already setup and working? Do you have anything else that successfully connects to it "wirelessly", like a laptop or desktop or smartphone? If the answer is yes, here's how to setup the 360 to connect to your router:

1. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
2. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
3. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
4. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.
5. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option.
Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need: Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

My xbox live is not working and my connection to the internet is on


Do you have an Xbox Live Gold Membership? To get Xbox Live you have to buy the membership, that's why a lot of people go with PS3 because you don't have to pay a monthly bill. But if you do have a gold membership. Press the Xbox button that has a big green X on your controller and then go to settings. Go to system settings, then go to network settings and select which connect your xbox is connect and then test your Xbox live connection. Hope this helps!

I need to log into my router which is an SMC SMCD3GN. The same problem I need to access my router to open ports for Xbox Live. I even tried the password diabloman posted about 8 months ago. Please Helpppp.


Normaly you do not need to open any ports for XBOX LIVE, XBOX LIVE uses the web connection that you'r XBOX uses to connect to the internet, unless you are using something i don't know, my son is using XBOX LIVE and i never had to open any ports on my router/fierwall.

if you can't remember the login for the SMC just reset it to factory, then login with SMC default user and password

I cannot connect to xbox live. I've called numerous times to microsoft with no results. I've called my router company to open gaming ports, which i did and still nothing. Ive gotten a new xbox, and it...


if you are using a router then you will have to set the connection up your main line to allow the connection to be made. if you are direct connecting with the modem to the xbox and its still not connecting then the xbox live server is down. I used to run into not connecting to xbox live alot more through using my router because my router was old and good gaming on live requires a good gaming router. check to see if your computer is acknowlledging your router, And if it is then, Make sure your router is up to date. sounds like a router issue. post back with any more help if its needed :-)

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.

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

Xbox live


assuming your internet connection, router, etc. are working properly, call 1800-4MY-XBOX and tell them that you need to get them to "open up" your router. They will give you several codes. Then you call your router tech support, and give them the codes to open this up. You should be all set after this. This happened to me a few months ago, and this is how i resolved it.

XBox 360 not compatible with Motorola WR850G


Motorola WR850G router may fail to connect to xbox live after update to firmware 6.1.4. I was able to correct the problem. My solution was
Go in xbox >> network config >> IP and use Static option. Set the xbox to an IP in the range allowed by your router configuration. The router IP config range is found in the router config web >> Lan section. Then I set my router config >> Routing >> DMZ IP Address setting to the xbox ip I just assigned to my xbox. Restart router using the restart button on the Basic page of router config. Restart your xbox and attempt to login to xbox live. This solved my problem.

As a side note, on the xbox networking test page, the xbox live status message will allows show they are aware of a problem with xbox live login. This is a lie. For that reason I postponed trying to fix my router problem thinking it was an xbox issue, it is not. Once you finally connect to xbox live you will still notice this incorrect message remains.
