I think someone plugged an internet cable into the back of your xbox or this cable was in there already but now started to work.
If you do not want xbox live disconnect the cable or maybe change the settings to not 'search for x box live'
If you want live make sure the cable is connected to the internet and follow the instructions in the manual.

Hope that helped

I'm losing my connection...

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link

Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine

If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
  2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
  3. Choose to download the game update.

If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

My xbox wont update xbox live

Most cases here you on a wireless connection?

If youe on a wireless connection change to wired then update, if your already on a wired connection then you need to connect your machine direct to your ISP modem and not any routers or switches or things that would inhibit or bloack the transmission. What happends is Xbox live is loaded and sometimes the download drops out because of the amount of users on the service at any given time. Once it falls below any certain KB/per secound the transmission is stopped by your isp this is called a abandoned download.

If your on a router disconnect and go directly into the isp modem.
