    How would I change the MAC address? If you have AIM or any other instant messaging system that'd be great.....the wireless isn't involed in this issue at all each xboxes are connected to the router with ethernet cables..The game Call Of Duty WAW will allow us to play in the same game because we have before..just recently it hasnt been allowing us.

I've had this problem and if possible you may need to change the mac address in wireless settings on one. they cannot use the same one. It could be a game that doesn't allow two connections on one router also. I've ran into that problem too!

D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming.

Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to xbox Live.

    My xbox 360 wont connect to xbox live and ive tried everthing


    things you can do..... first start by connecting your 360 to the router and run a test through the system setting menu on your 360 dash board.... to do this go to system setting menu and select the network setting menu.... after selecting network setting there should be an option to test you`xbox live connection.... this is the first step in trouble shooting.... if your xbox connects to the network or router than the problem may be in the Internet connection.... after you have a connection between the xbox and the router... connect the router to the Internet and run the the test again... if you are connected to the network and the internet but still not to xbox live try doing a system update to update your system with xbox live.... after doing all of these steps you may have purchased and xbox that has been banned from xbox live and will not be able to join xbox live..... a more simple solution is that you may not have an xbox live account and simply need to set one up... this can be done through the xbox or you can go to www.xbox.com and set up a live account... you can also find FAQ's and trouble shooting steps there

    Wont let me connect to xbox live


    Check your firewall on your router. The Xbox Live service uses UDP ports 88 and 3074 as well as TCP port 3074 for its IP networking.

    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 :-)

    Will not connect to xbox live threw computer and cable is good to router


    I had the same problem, if you have wireless in your house then buy a wireless connector from a local GAME, if you have a wireless router and an ethernet cable all you have to do is plug one end into the xbox and the other into one of the LAN ports on your router, when this happens you should be able to connect to Xbox Live, this means theres always a wire running but it wouldnt cost much to pin it against walls or under floorboards or whatever, hope this helps!

    Xbox 360 live on wireless router


    In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

    I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


    1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

    2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

    3. 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.

    4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

    5. 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. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
    6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

      On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

      On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
    Tips:
    1. 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)
