Ok, so I've been connected to Xbox live for months, great connection, everything fine. I'm using a wired Ethernet LAN connection. All of a sudden while I was playing yesterday, I was disconnected from XBL. I replugged the Ethernet LAN cable in the back of the Xbox. The connection to XBL was re-established. However, when I came back later to play, it could not connect to XBL. When I did a connection test it could not connect to my network. I checked the ethernet cable, it is fine, and I unplugged it from the router. I plugged it back in and now it just periodically flashes green. Resetting, unplugging, and turning off the router did nothing. The router is an actiontec m142wr connected to Verizon FiOS. Somebody help!

how to connect the 360 to the Live
network. Before you do anything you are going to need to decide
how you plan on connecting the bad boy. The 360 supports both wired and
wireless connections. In order to use a wireless connection you will
need the Xbox 360 Wireless adapter. Personally I find the wireless
connection to be a bit too temperamental for my liking so I go with a
wired connection via a router, but not everyone has the same wireless
experience. To set up the connection via a router unplug the
router and the modem and turn off the 360. Connect an Ethernet cable to
one of the out ports of the preexisting router then connect the cord to
the back of your 360. Plug everything back in and turn and give the
modem and router about 3 minutes to reboot. Once you have given
everything a few minutes to reboot you can turn the 360 back on. If you
have already set up a gamer profile you will see the Xbox Live screen.
If you have not set up an account you will be prompted to do so. All you
need to do is follow the on screen instructions. It is a pretty cut and
dry process and should not take more than 10 minutes of your time.
connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360
console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem
and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your
With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one
of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your
PC's Ethernet port.
With the third Ethernet cable, connect
one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the
other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to
configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the
router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
you can go to your routers website and enter it manually. Type 192.168.1.1 this might be it or try 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.100
when it shows your routers info write it down and then put it in your xbox's network by entering it manually. btw the secondary DNS is just 0.0.0.0 if it doesn't give you two. the gateway is just your routers ip address.
what else you can do is do port forwarding. But the xbox is not a static ip address so it'll change. what you can do is when it says to put your ip address in your xbox put all the numbers the same as the routers ip address BUT DON'T USE THE SAME LAST NUMBER! so like if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 you can use 192.168.1.23 i use 192.168.2.15 but you may not have the 2 in yours.
I had the same problem, if you have wireless in your house then buy a wireless connector from a local GAME, if you have a wireless router and an ethernet cable all you have to do is plug one end into the xbox and the other into one of the LAN ports on your router, when this happens you should be able to connect to Xbox Live, this means theres always a wire running but it wouldnt cost much to pin it against walls or under floorboards or whatever, hope this helps!
if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.
by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22
you need to set static ip's for the xbox 360 and the lan that is on the pc, easy to bride the two connections on your computer, then set static on the lan that the 360 is plugged in to, example:
360's static settings:
ok, firstly i hate these problems. first things first, switch your hub off (leave for 2 mins) switch back on, this may refresh the ip address, also switch your xbox off.. then try agian. Get back to me and let me know what happens from here.
oh also are you connecting your xbox to the pc? or directly to your broadband hub? if you can connect it directly to your hub, this should solve any problems
Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.
