Not sure how far back it spans but reprots for xbox live being down started around friday night could have been earlier than that.

Xbox live is down atm most of the online gamesxbox live - 1.gif right now are not working and the voicemail and messaging systems are down. Im sure that the downloading system1.gif is also down. They now about it and are working on it. If you would like to track the status go to www.xboxlive.com and search status this will bring you the xbox live status whether it is working atm or not just yet they hope to have it working this week. This issue started on friday or saturday this past week.

Restart your modem or router. Give it a little while and try again. If it still does not work try the tips that x-box live recommends.

Change NAT to open


You should first reserve an IP address for your Xbox in your router DHCP server settings. If it is not possible to make a reservation, you should assign a static IP to your Xbox and excluse that address from the router DHCP server.

Then, you should set DMZ to point to the IP address you just reserve for your Xbox.

You should be set!

MTU setting


Browse to the router's setup page, should be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 and log into it. You just have to change the MTU. Put it to 1500.
Once logged in to the router, go to :

You should have no problem w/ comcast.
First make sure your computer can connect to the web with the same connection. If it does then you should be good to go. My guess is that you are not able to from your set up the way it is configured. Make sure your signal is split with a router. Your IP and DSN should set automatically from within the Xbox. Don't try to manually set up the IP address or the DNS.

Make sure you run your test setup though the Xbox and pay attention to what it says. Read the solutions that are offered for every fail test. Be patient. I am confident you can do this. But to repeat. Make sure you can log onto the web with a computer from the very same TCIP plug that you will use on the 360.

Hello taz1028,

In order for you to be able to log into Xbox Live, you will need to have DSL or Broad Band internet connect in your home. Once you have that, you will be able to connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Modem that the internet provider gives you. If you wish to able to connect both the Xbox and your notebook to the modem you will then need a router or a wireless router. So, if you do not have DSL or Broad Band Internet service in your home, you will not be able to log into Xbox Live.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

IP address Problem when connecting to xbox 360 live


i had the same problem buddy. The problem might be that you hacve another system on the wireless network that uses that same IP address. This can cause a conflict that will prevent the xbox from logging on. Try deactivating other systems on the network to see if thats the problem
