Troubleshoot the router. Unplug it and the modem, reset them if need be. Start the router first.. with the xbox ethernet plugged into it. After a short while start the Modem. Should work just fine after that. If not.. test other things to see if your connection works.

yes it can be, one antenna receives(Rx) and the other transmits(Tx)
other reasons are
1.) encryption of the router is set wrong

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.

Why won't my Xbox stay connected to xboxlive


Be sure to try another channel on your router. Default channels often interfere with cordless phones (up to a mile away!!) Try channel 11 or one of the highest available, in the router.

I can't connect two Xboxes to my one router! For


Reset the router with both wires unplugged.
Plug one xbox in and turn it on, once it's connected connect the other the same way.

If you're trying to log in to xbox live using the same account on both xbox's you won't be able to.

How do u connect an an xbox 360 to xbox live


You need either a blue Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox to an internet outlet or a wireless router. If you use the wireless router, hook it up to your computer so it broadcasts a signal, then, depending on what Xbox you have, if its the new 360 slim you won't need a wireless adapter, you search for the signal, then connect it. If you don't have the 360 slim, then you need to buy a wireless adapter and it plugs into the back of the Xbox.

I bought a new DSL-2642B Wireless Router and Modem but it won't let me connect to Xbox Live, the solution that the Microsoft Solution thingy game me was to change the MTU settings, any idea of how to...


In order to connect to Xbox Live with a Wireless Modem and Router, you will need a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter. You can get a Xbox Wireless Adapter cheap on eBay, or you can buy it Microsoft at Gamestop. http://www.gamestop.com/browse?nav=16k-Xbox+360+Wireless+Adapter
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To find your MTU Settings, follow these steps.
1. Click on 'Start'
2. Click on 'Run...'
3. In the bar, type CMD, and hit enter.
4. A black box should appear. Type "ipconfig" without quotation marks in the field.
5. Your IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway codes should pop up.
6 Go to your internet browser and type you IP Address into the URL box.
7. You should find MTU settings, and you can set them to your desire.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

MTU con connecting. How to fix ?


What does MTU do on Xbox Live?

The MTU of your router or gateway must be greater than or equal to 1365. If it is less than 1365, you won’t be able to connect to Xbox Live.


To change the MTu login to your admin router panel:
  1. Go to start>Run>cmd>type ipconfig
  2. look for "default gateway" then type that address into your router login, usally the login is admin/admin if not look in your manual or call your router maker.
  3. Now login locate the area to adjust the MTU if you cant find it, contact the router maker, or look in your manual.
