Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Can't get Xbox live to Connect to Xbox Live

When I try to connect it tells me that it can't connect so it goes through the tests, passes the fact it is connected to something but fails at the IP test.
My XBox is connected to a LinkSys EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Switch. Then is connected to a Motorola Broadband Modem.
I've also tried just connecting the Xbox straight to the modem but that didn't work either.

I have xbox live but cant update it.


The new update for xbox 360's launch of Kinect is causing problems. I fixed mine by going into System Settings, Network settings, then running a test on xbox live. Initiating the test logs your profile out then runs a network test. The test completed with no problems and then asked me if I wanted to update again. Without logging back into my profile I clicked OK and the update ran without a hitch. I think the solution lies in the fact that my profile was logged out and from what I have seen, the only way to connect to xbox live without a profile being logged in is with a network test. Once you connect to xbox live it senses that you don't have the update and asks you again, this time without a profile logged in and you are able to do it.

What so I need to have xbox conected to the pc? what part of product do I need to be conected to xbox live?


You need to have windows live and a wireless router or Ethernet cable that goes directly from your modem/computer/ to your Xbox. As for Xbox live, same process, most people have wireless adapter to connect to their wireless router. If it doesn't connect when you test it, it will tell you why. Have fun and hope this helped, if you have more questions contact me.
Good luck!

Xbox live connection problem


Well depending on when you were trying they may have passed but the amount of information that was trying to run through your internet may not have been able to go through so in turn that may be the cause is your internet, if that is not the case and you have restarted the modem and everything I would call 1 800 4 MY XBOX and get some help with the xbox live they are very helpful.

Connecting to xbox live failing


The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
