You appear to be on a router where you flipped on a security switch in the router and now this MTU is not working properly. There is a small, small button on the back of your modem or router. You have to press it with the tip of a pen, it's that small! This will reset all settings on the modem or router and then you can power off and on the box for 30 seconds, leave it on and try again. ONLY DO THIS IF YOU OWN CONTROL OVER THE BOXES OR GET PARENTS PERMISSION FOR THIS KIDS! By default, all the security settings are disabled and go back to original working state for configuration or use or the box. If you turn on anything security related on your router or modem, this will give you MTU issues all the time! Stop touching those settings if you don't know how to configure a router.

Not enough mtu to go to xbox live at hotel


An MTU is the largest physical packet size, measure in Bytes that a network is capable of transmitting.. If messages are larger than the MTU they are divided into smaller packets before they can be sent. All networks have different MTU's which the owner of the network set at what they want to set it at. 576 is a very common MTU if you connect through PPP. 1500 is the most common MTU for Ethernet connections. The Xbox Live system requires your network to have a certain Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). MTU values are important to the performance of online games. If this test fails, you can adjust the MTU setting on your network router or equivalent device to resolve the problem. Xbox live requires the network you use to have a maximum MTU. This is key to online gamesing. If the MTU fails then you have to adjust the router you are using. If you cannot access the router to adjust the MTU the you will not be able to play online games.

We tried going on xbox live everything but the MTU didnt work.


Try it with the ethernet cable,that should work. Then try wireless, if it doesnt work, you'll have to take it further into your router config. Contact me for more assistance (MSN iBen@Gmx.Co.Uk

Xbox is not signing me in ? Account is paid for the year, very annoying and it keeps happening,please advise. callinghook


Test your Xbox Live connection. It's found on the dashboard when you go to Network Settings under the System tab. If the MTU test fails, it's a Microsoft problem and you can't do anything until they fix things with their servers. They performed Xbox Live server maintenance all day Monday Sept. 29 and it looks like they're still working on that.

Xbox live connection?


When the Xbox live fails, it just means XBOX Live is currently down in your area. Give it a day then try again. If the problem continues, call microsoft.
