Need more information in order to resolve this issue! For instance have you made any changes to your network? Ex. Firewall, passwords, usernames, etc. Everytime you make a change to your network it changes something in the direction that two devices communicate with one another. You may need to run a specific software to have your xbox recognize your new upgrade!

Why dose my profile keep signing me out when putting on games and when trying to play some games


Sometimes it may depend on the connectivity of the level your internet. A while ago I had a lot of problems with internet and like you, my games often crashed.

The easiest thing is to check your connection and make sure you are getting a strong signal.

On Xbox 360 to check your connection just follow this link:

Troubleshoot Xbox 360 connection to Xbox Live

While it's a lot to read it will help you in the long run.

To check your speed on Xbox Live go here
Slow experience on Xbox Live (for Xbox One)

You can also check out to see if Xbox Live may be the problem. By going to this link.
Xbox Live Status

The next thing, try replacing your router, when I bought my new router my problems stopped. You can also upgrade to a newer modem to DOCSIS 3.0. This of course depends on your internet speed. If you are below 20mbs I wouldn't worry about upgrading just yet. But upgrading never hurts. However, if you are trying to get 50mbs or more DOCSIS 2.0 bottlenecks. While I am no expert on modems. I think the DOCSIS 2.0 modem bottlenecks around 38mbs.

To Check your speed on the internet, this is the site most people go to.

Speedtest net by Ookla The Global Broadband Speed Test

Use whichever server you wish. I usually do multiple ones to see how it differs.

Tip

Microsoft XBox Live and the 2Wire HomePortal


source: http://support.2wire.com (please visit!)

The Xbox Live service is compatible with all current and previously shipped versions of 2wire software. Simply connect your Xbox unit to the 2wire network and log on to the Xbox Live service.
If you are experiencing problems connecting to the XBox Live service, follow the troubleshooting procedures provided in your XBox Live documentation or XBox Live CD sleeve.
If you continue to have trouble, here are some additional troubleshooting tips:

1. Reconnect your Xbox to the 2wire Homeportal


Turn off the Xbox and unplug your 2wire HomePortal from the electrical outlet.

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Local Ethernet port on the 2wire HomePortal.

Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console.

Plug your 2wire back into the electrical outlet and wait for all lights to turn solid green before proceeding.

Turn on your Xbox console (without a disc in the tray).

From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Xbox Live.

In the network settings, test the connection. The connection test should pass.


2. Create custom 2wire Homeportal firewall settings

Although a custom firewall setting should not be required, manually configuring your 2wire firewall ensures that it is not preventing your connection to the Xbox Live service.

HomePortal software version 3.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages. Alternately, you can type: http://gateway.2wire.net

Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "View your home network" link in the same box.
Click on "Edit firewall settings" next to the unknown device.
In the lower left-hand corner of this screen, click on "Add a new user-defined application."
Enter "Xbox Live" for the Application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on Add.
Repeat these same steps for the following ports and protocols:

Port Protocol
53 UDP
88 TCP
88 UDP
3074 TCP
3074 UDP

Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.
Under "Select a Host Computer" select the "unknown device".
Under "Select the Application(s)" click on "User-defined."
Select "Xbox Live" in the box on the left and click "Add."
Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.

HomePortal software version 2.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages.
Click on the "HomePortal Upgrades" button and if you have an upgrade available, download the upgrade. If you do not have an upgrade available, continue to next step
Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "Advanced" link in the same box.
In the lower, left-hand corner of this screen click on "Add an application" link. Enter "Xbox 1" for the application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP"
Leave the Protocol setting as "Other".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on DONE on the "Add Application" page.
Repeat the same steps for the following ports and protocols. You will need to create a new name for each entry:

Xbox 1 53 UDP
Xbox 2 88 TCP
Xbox 3 88 UDP
Xbox 4 3704 TCP
Xbox 5 3704 UDP

Click on DONE on the "Hosted Application" page when you are finished creating the list above.

How do i get xbox live


If you have broadband, then hook up an Ethernet cable to your modem and then to your xbox and then you onto xbox and sign up for xbox live. That will cost money too. How much depends on where you live. You can buy a code for xbox live online or in a shop.
If you don't have broadband then get that first.

    I just bought an xbox 360 slim and I cannot "upgrade" I'm connected to the internet with a sprint mobile broadband u760 connection flash drive, How do I receive xbox live with the upgrade?


    I don't recommend connecting to the Internet with the flash drive modem unless it's high speed like the 4G network - it's slow. If you have Ethernet access, use that instead to connect to xBox Live.

    First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
