Did you ever get this working?  It seems from your problem description that you're using a wireless connection. Have you correctly entered your wireless security key (WEP/WPA/WPA2, etc.)?

To update an Xbox 360 console by using Xbox Live, you must have an Xbox Live Gold membership or an Xbox Live Silver membership and a high-speed connection. If you do not have an Xbox Live account but you do have a high-speed connection, you can create a free Xbox Live Silver membership. To do this, click the Xbox Live banner in the Xbox Live section of the Dashboard.

Download the update to a computer North America:

    CLICK HERE..The auto-update fails. You receive a connectivity error message, but when you test your connection to Xbox Live, you do not receive an error message.



    Typically, failed game auto-updates occur when the downloaded data is corrupted. This prevents access to gameplay. Also, if the ports that are required to connect to Xbox Live are closed, any auto-update may not download correctly.



    Copy the saved game data to a separate memory source so that you can restore the data if this step does not resolve the issue. To delete game data, follow these steps:



    a.
    Sign in by using your gamertag.

    b.
    Move to the System section.

    c.
    Select Memory, and then press the A button.

    d.
    Select Hard Drive, and then press the A button.

    e.
    Select Games, and then press the A button.

    f.
    Select the profile that you want to view, and then press the A button.

    g.
    On the Select Game screen, select the game for which the update will not download, and then press the Y button.

    h.
    On the Game screen, press the A button to delete the game.

    Note The Delete option is the only option that is available on the Game screen.

    i.
    On the Delete Item screen, select Yes, and then press the A button to confirm the deletion.

    j.
    Press the B button four times to return to the System section.

    k.
    Start the game, and then sign in to Xbox Live to download the update again.



    ***When you delete game data, you lose any saved game information.

    Hope this initial post will help you on your problem, any further assistance regarding on this problem kindly post back again us here..



    Thank you..

Try turning off the system and trying it again.

Why can't you download the update, are you clicking on the area to download it and it won't download or did you think it automatically download which it won't. Does any error come up?

Please update me,

Thanks

    Please let me know what fixes this problem so that when other people experience the same thing, I will know what worked as this isn't very common for me. We haven't ever experienced this problem with our xbox or other xbox's that I've used.

    Obviously since xbox live fails then, microsoft should be the one to blame and by calling the number above, they should be able to help you get this working since this is the only thing they work with.

    The xbox should connect even without the update. Check


    Router Connection with Xbox 360



  • Ginko
    Ginko Apr 24, 2008

    It means that there is a problem with your network connection, go back to the shop, or find a friend with a Broadband connection , and ask the favour to connect to their network and download the live update.

    Alternatively try the following from Microsoft:

    "
    Burn a DVD or CDThe other
    possibility is to download a file from Xbox.com and burn a DVD or CD.
    Use this method if you don't have your console connected to broadband,
    or if you use a dialup connection to the Internet. You could even do
    this at a friend's house who has a broadband Internet connection and a
    DVD or CD burner.
    To create an update disc you need the following:


    • A DVD or CD burner.

    • A blank writeable DVD or CD.

    • The update file from Xbox.com.
    This
    procedure involves burning the DVD or CD by using Microsoft Windows DVD
    or CD burning software. If you're using third-party CD/DVD writing
    software, follow the instructions for creating a data disc.
    The same steps apply when burning a DVD in a DVD burner.
    To create a DVD or CD:


    1. Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate_[date].zip" anywhere on your computer.

    2. Place a blank disc in your burner.

      From Windows Explorer, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer or open the CD drive icon.

    3. Drag
      the zipped $SystemUpdate zip folder to the CD Folder. If the CD write
      window doesn't open by default, drag and drop folder on the CD/DVD RW
      drive.
      Note
      If you are using an earlier version of Windows you will need to open the file using a separate utility (for example, WinZip).


    4. In the Explorer window, click Write files to CD from the CD writing tasks or right-click the CD/DVD RW drive and select Write these files to CD.
      Caution
      The update filename and folder structure must be intact for the update to run properly.


    5. Follow the steps in the CD wizard.

      When you are finished with the wizard, the CD will eject. Your CD is ready.
    To update the console:


    1. Place the CD in the Xbox 360 console.

    2. Power cycle the Xbox 360 console.

    3. The update program will start automatically. Select "Yes, update now" and press the A button.

    4. Wait for the update to complete.

    5. The console will reboot and you're done.

Xbox live IP address and gateway dont seem to work


Make sure you are using the xbox networking adapter. Some networking adapters may work on it but if you encountered any problems, xbox tech support won't be able to assist you with some troubleshooting since they don't support any product other than the xbox networking adapter.
  • To test the connection, go to the system area on your xbox live dashboard then go to network settings and select test xbox live connection.
  • If you pass on all test down to NAT then it means you are connected already and you can now enjoy playing online.
  • If you fail on the first part of the test which is Network Adapter or if it says not connected on Wireless Network then you need to perform some steps.
  • Get back to the network setting's area by pressing B on your controller and select restore to factory defaults. Doing this will restore the xbox live settings to default and you need run another test again which may allow you now to pass.
  • If you still fail on wireless network then it means that you need to set your console to wireless mode by going back to Network Settings and selecting the Edit Settings option.

How do i hook my mi-fi internet to the xbox 360? i have purchased an adapter and can not figure out how to get the internet working


Here's how to configure your wireless settings:
  1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If you are prompted to select a wireless network, complete these steps, otherwise skip to step 4.
    1. Select the name of your wireless network.
    2. Enter your wireless network password and select Done.
    3. The console will automatically try connecting to Xbox LIVE. If you get an error message, go to the following webpage for help: support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx (http://support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-live/troubleshoot/connection-issues/connect-xbox-live.aspx)

    Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.

  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.

    Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article: 977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
  6. Select Scan for Networks.
  7. Select your wireless network name.

    If your network is not listed, try the following:
    1. Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
    2. Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).

      If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article: 909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
  8. Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.

    Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.

  9. Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

How do you set up the xbox to wireless connection


Turn on the unit without a game CD in the drive; this brings up the main Xbox menu or “Xbox Dashboard
Using the joystick’s control pad, go to“Settings” then click the “A” button on the joystick

From the “Settings” menu, go to“Network Settings” and click the “A” button on the joystick

The “Network Settings” window has various options to connect the Xbox to a network or directly to an ISP using PPPoE. Click the “A” button to select “IP Address

The Xbox defaults to DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol). If there is a good network connection to your HomePortal, you should see the IP address fields populated. If the Xbox was previously configured for a static IP address, click the “A” button on “Configuration” and select “Automatic”. Click the “A” button to accept the changes or the “B” button on the joystick to go back up one level in the menu

The “DNS Servers” (Domain Name Service) is set to “Automatic” by default; you may need to reset it to a previous static setting. Simply click the “A” button and change the setting to “Automatic”, then click the “A” button to save the changes

PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is turned off by default; if the Xbox was connected directly to a DSL modem before the HomePortal was installed, you need to change it back to “Off”. Simply click the “A” button on the “Configuration” menu and change to “Off”, then click the “A” button to save the setting.

The “Advanced” tab has the configuration menu for the Xbox-branded wireless adapter, where you change the DHCP Host Name and spoof the MAC (Media Access Control) address if necessary

Verify the settings; click the “Connect” option and click the “A” button to test the network connection.

The system now checks the physical connection, verifies the IP and DNS addresses then tests the connection to the Xbox Live service. If everything is ok, the test shows “Connected to Xbox Live

IP address Problem when connecting to xbox 360 live


i had the same problem buddy. The problem might be that you hacve another system on the wireless network that uses that same IP address. This can cause a conflict that will prevent the xbox from logging on. Try deactivating other systems on the network to see if thats the problem
