This could happen for many reasons. It could be other people using up all you internet. If possible connect your xbox directly to your router or modem and see if that fixes the problem. If not use speedtest.net and see if the speed you are getting is what you are paying for.
you can't connect the usb stick to the xbox directly, but you can connect your xbox to your pc/laptop with the broadband usb stick in your pc/laptop and share the connection. while this will work, it's not going to be very fast and if you intend to play games online there will be a big lag. But it's better than nothing if that is all you have for internet connection. Anyway here's how. connect your laptop to your xbox using an ethernet cable, and have your usb dongle in your pc/laptop connected to the internet.
now depending on what os(operating system) you have on your computer, navigate to control panel>network and sharing>manage network connections.
once in here you want to enable sharing on your connection and tick the box allow other users to connect through this computers connection. then you want to select local area connection on the home network connection menu.
now you can test your xbox live connection to see if it connects to the internet, if it does happy gaming :)
If it fails, try making your connection to a public rather than private connection. If this method fails, try restarting your pc/laptop and then your xbox and go through the process again.
I know this can be tricky and alot of trial and error, but if this is all you have to connect to the internet and you really want to get online then it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.
my first suggestion is check your setting to make sure everything correct. to be sure re-enter everything if you still have problems. I would then check if the adapter can read your router (this can be done by searching for a signal). if the router is found and can connect but failes connecting to internet your router itself may not be connected. make sure your router can connect by itself and that you can connect to internet through the router from your computer. if all these steps are takin try config your router so it will accept incoming signals and that it has the right security for the xbox to connect.
I heard about clearing the cache, but it has nothing to do with your xbox live connection. Perhaps you need a faster connection from your ISP or it could be that their are too many ppl using the internet around your area. Try playing at night or mornings, thats when the network isn't so bad.
go to the dashboard,and test your conection,once it failes you can then search for your network,click on your network and type in the WPA key,which is written on the back of your router,and it should have no problem conecting to xbox live,depending on your conection,you mite have a bit of lag during online games.
In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
go to your router. find what your ip pool is. choose an ip that is in that pool. set up your xbox's internet manually. you need the gateway, DNS, and everything (you can find this on your router online) this will give your xbox a static IP and might fix your problem
Live goes down randomly everyday now after christmas. You can check the status of Xbox live on www.xbox.com. They usually will post a report when they are having problems. I guess all the new Xbox owners after christmas are clogging up the Live system and it can't handle everyone. Very aggrevating. They need to get their servers upgraded... fast. Nothing like paying monthly for something and not being able to use it because a ton of other people are using the free one month trial that comes with the system.
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.
