I can play Xbox live as a single player. But when I play with others, I immediately get the "connection interupted" display and it takes me back to the start of the game. It doesn't do this when I have a hard lined connected into the router (Linksys WRT150N), only when I'm using the wireless. I've forwarded the ports, and assigned a static IP address to the XBox, but still the problem persists. Can you help me?
I had the same problem "connection interrupted" keep coming popping up everytime i was playing an online match.......all i did was go buy a router that cost about 70 dollars and ever since i connected the internet to the router it works good now.......

Re: connection interupted display
I too had this problem and I hardcoded the mac address of my 360 into the router and enbled no encryption, Im note sure but i think it might have been the security encryption causing it for me. I work fine now...

Hi. Your son most likely bought the Gold membership to XBOX Live thinking that it was an XBOX Live Gold Family Pack. A single Gold membership costs $59.99 USD. An XBOX Live Gold Family Pack costs $99.99 USD. With the family pack, you get four 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold memberships for less than the price of two. Two players cannot use a single Gold membership, but if they play on the same console, then two players could share one membership. Also, certain games, such as Call of Duty: Black Ops and Halo:Reach allow players to play online multiplayer games together with one "guest" player at the same time, on the same TV. I hope this cleared everything up.
Hi, to answer your questions, 1 you will have to pay for xbox live you can get top up cards from most video games shops or you can pay by card, you dont have to purchase live at all if you dont plan on playing massive multi player on line games such as call of duty etc etc, you can still play these games as normal on your xbox but you can get to play other players online via the live network if you plan on challenging other players around the live network if your into playing massive online player games, you also get some bonus levels via live but these are not needed if you dont want to use live.
i have got an xbox 360 and all i use it for is playing the games as they come ive never needed to use it online as im happy enough just playing the games as they are.
now for the updates, you can either go through the live network to get the firmware updates or certain games come with the updates on them so if you dont want to use live then the xbox will update from a game, it is not something you need to do with every live game but as microsoft bring out new patches to get round bugs in their software or a new feature your xbox needs to play a certain game well you will either be sent the update via the live network if your planning on using the network or when you buy certain games the xbox will update from the game, the updates come out say every 6 months to 12 months so its not something you need to do all the time and its not something you need to be worried about because if you buy a game that needs your xbox updating then this game will update the firmware without you having to go on live network.
please let me know if you have any other questions or problems.
will give you some advice though, when you get the xbox please make sure the air vent at the bottom end of the xbox as if its lying flat, at one end you have the hard drive if it comes with one or if you buy one but the other grey plastic panel at the other end is an air vent so make sure this is not blocked as it will cause the xbox it over heat in a couple of minutes you will then have the dreaded red ring of death and need to get it sent back for repair so make sure this vent has a good 3 inches of space before anything else as the air is sucked in through this panel and at the back make sure the fans vent is not blocked as this is where the hot air will be blown out.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
please rate this solution as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks
check playing with this disc on any other Xbox 360 connected to live, ideally the disc should not have problem since the problem you are facing could be with saving or downloading of the specific update required to play game online on xbox live which is mostly related to updated playlists.
If it still does not work, try erasing the saves for this particular game from your Xbox 360 HDD in case you are okay to forego the game progress / XP gained for the offline campaign play.
If u have a credit card. connect your xbox to your network and enter the marketplace. there you will find the signup for LIVE icon and go from there. no credit card. purchace a Live membership from Target, Gamestop, Toys R us etc....Connect to LIVE with your xbox and enter the unlock code located on your purchased LIVE card. hope this helps.
to format your hard drive go to the dashboard then system settings then memory then click into hard drive u will c device options on the bottom of the screen press y to go into it in there u will c the option to format. it sounds like your loosing the update you dont get updates every day that would be crazy you could try a friens hard drive and c if it holds the update
