Re: xbox live


it is possible you tried to sign up/in during a maintaince period

Although it was only supposed to take 2 hours, the xbox live system was unstable for most of the day.

You may find it works fine now, if not you may was to check your router is not on the list of incompatable ones for xbox live.

Xbox live IP address and gateway dont seem to work

Make sure you are using the xbox networking adapter. Some networking adapters may work on it but if you encountered any problems, xbox tech support won't be able to assist you with some troubleshooting since they don't support any product other than the xbox networking adapter.
  • To test the connection, go to the system area on your xbox live dashboard then go to network settings and select test xbox live connection.
  • If you pass on all test down to NAT then it means you are connected already and you can now enjoy playing online.
  • If you fail on the first part of the test which is Network Adapter or if it says not connected on Wireless Network then you need to perform some steps.
  • Get back to the network setting's area by pressing B on your controller and select restore to factory defaults. Doing this will restore the xbox live settings to default and you need run another test again which may allow you now to pass.
  • If you still fail on wireless network then it means that you need to set your console to wireless mode by going back to Network Settings and selecting the Edit Settings option.

I forgot my family passcode and the answer to the secret question on my xbox 360 what should i do?

Hi aureliogovea

Please everyone that comes across my info take a few seconds of your time to rate my solution which you can select at the bottom of my answer Was this solution helpful? YES or NO :)... As i have taken time to answer your question the best i can Thank You......

If children use your Xbox console, you can set a pass code to control access to features and options. Because Family Settings exist for both the console and for Xbox LIVE accounts, you can set pass codes for both.
Here you can learn how to:
Set an Xbox LIVE Pass Code
When you set an Xbox LIVE pass code for your profile, anyone who wants to use that profile will need to enter the pass code before signing in to Xbox LIVE.

To set an Xbox LIVE pass code:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open your profile.
  2. Select Manage Account, Xbox LIVE Pass Code.
  3. Enter a four-button code using the X andY buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  4. Confirm your code by entering it again.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time. (You will have to enter your original Xbox LIVE pass code before you can create a new one.)

Set a Family Settings Pass Code
When you create a Family Settings pass code, anyone who wants to change family settings on your console will need to enter the pass code first.

You can also use your Family Settings pass code to override game and movie settings if you (or those with whom you share your pass code) want to play games or watch DVD movies that your console settings normally block.
For example, you could give the pass code to your 18-year-old so that she can watch R-rated movies that your younger child is not allowed to see.
To set a pass code for your console:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Select Set Pass Code.
  4. Select Pass Code, then enter a four-button code using the X and Y buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  5. Confirm your code by entering it again.
  6. Choose a pass code reset question.
  7. Select Pass Code Reset Answer and enter your answer using either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console.
  8. Select Done from the Set Pass Code screen, then select Done once more from the Console Controls screen. When prompted, select Yes, save changes to put your new settings into effect.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time.
Reset a Forgotten Pass Code
To reset your pass code after you've forgotten it:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Enter an incorrect pass code.
  4. You'll be told that your pass code is incorrect. SelectReset pass code.
  5. You'll then be shown your pass code question and asked to answer it.
  6. Set a new pass code, following the directions in the previous section.
If you've forgotten the answer to your pass-code reset question as well as your pass code, call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

Note The following steps apply only to Xbox LIVE online profiles. When you delete an offline profile, you lose any Gamerscore that is associated with the profile. You also lose achievements and statistics that are associated with the profile.

    1. In the My Xbox area, select System Settings.
    2. Select Memory.
    3. Select the memory device on which your profile is stored.
    4. Select Gamer Profiles.
    5. Select the profile that you want to delete.
    6. Select Delete. When you are prompted, select Delete Profile Only.
  2. In the Xbox LIVE section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Recover Gamertag from Xbox Live.
  3. Select Yes when you receive the following message: To join Xbox LIVE, you must exit your current session.
  4. Enter the gamertag for which you want to remove the pass code, and then select Done.
  5. Select Next.
  6. In the E-mail Address section, type the Windows Live ID credentials (the e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to the Windows Live ID) that are associated with your gamertag, and then select Done.
  7. Enter the password for the Windows Live ID account, and then select Done.
  8. Select Sign In.

One comes one turns off.

You cannot sign in on two xbox's at the same time. It is to stop people using the same xbox live account at the same time.

Connecting to xbox live failing

The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
