Re: x box 360 mtu failed

First learn how to type so that people can understand what you are saying. Then post the error message that you got and exactly what it's not letting you do.

Not enough mtu to go to xbox live at hotel

An MTU is the largest physical packet size, measure in Bytes that a network is capable of transmitting.. If messages are larger than the MTU they are divided into smaller packets before they can be sent. All networks have different MTU's which the owner of the network set at what they want to set it at. 576 is a very common MTU if you connect through PPP. 1500 is the most common MTU for Ethernet connections. The Xbox Live system requires your network to have a certain Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). MTU values are important to the performance of online games. If this test fails, you can adjust the MTU setting on your network router or equivalent device to resolve the problem. Xbox live requires the network you use to have a maximum MTU. This is key to online gamesing. If the MTU fails then you have to adjust the router you are using. If you cannot access the router to adjust the MTU the you will not be able to play online games.

Mtu keeps saying failed

I assume you mean you can't play games online?

Is your account Gold or Silver? (Go the the Marketplace blade, then down to account information, membership.)

You can only game online with a Gold subscription, which is like $50/year.

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.

Good luck!
