When our xbox 360 is online and we sign in on the same wireless router with our ps3, it briefly interrupts the connectivity of the xbox 360 and we have to re-sign in on the xbox 360. Any ideas why?

How do i get online with my xbox 360?


You will need to purchase a xbox live silver or gold credit. You will also need to connect your xbox to a router or switch that has access to the Internet. If you do not have a router/switch near by your xbox you can purchase a wireless gaming adapter to connect your xbox wirelessly to your wireless router.

How do you get xbox live connections


you need to sign up with xbox live on the xbox console , you need a wireless adapter plugged in and connected to your wireless or a ethernet cable from the xbox to the router. Then just sign up for xbox live , you will receive a 1 month free trial of xbox live gold which will allow you to play people online, after the month trial you either pay for it or you are demoted to xbox live silver

My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

I cant play online without the modem being by my ps3?


Yes, using a longer ethernet cord will work, but the PS3 has a bult-in WiFi card that can connect to any wireless router (you can buy a wireless router from a computer store like BestBuy).

If you are going to buy a wireless router, see if a wireless G-mimo or wireless N with signal boost is within your budget. Try looking through the network settings to see if you can connect through the wireless router.

Or just get a longer ethernet cord and run it directly to the PS3 from the router. Ethernet cords are the most reliable connection, granted you are on a good internet connection, they won't get interference from things like mobile phones, cordless phones, microwaves, TV's etc.

I have both the PS3 and Xbox 360 and the only thing I like better about the PS3 is the free online game play and Blue-Ray. Other than that, they're even. Good luck and have fun online! If you find me (wraith0127) say hi! Don't forget to rate. Thank you!

Must i get a xbox 360 or Ps3?


Both consoles have advantages.
The Xbox 360 has a vast array of titles and has the biggest fan base of the two. If you connect the console to the internet, you can download games and movies through Xbox Live. You can also connect your PC to your Xbox 360 and use the console as a multimedia center using Windows Media Center.

The PS3 has a blu ray drive as standard, so you can watch blu ray movies through your PS3. DVD's are also upscaled up to 720p to improve the look of your movies. The PS3's online service is free, and allows you to download game demo's and downloadable content for games.
The Xbox 360's disadvantages are the fact you need to pay for access to Xbox Live, roughly £40 per year, but it does guarentee a reliable online service. Also earlier and cheaper models of the Xbox do not support full HD via HDMI.
The PS3 is very expensive and lacks quality titles. The console is also on a 10 year plan, so even though the console will outlast its rivals, it is likely to become outdated.
If you want to watch blu ray films and play games occasionally, go for the PS3. If you want a console with a lot of titles and a reliable online service,  get the 360. Of the two I'd choose the 360, but in 2 years or so I might need to reconsider.

Call of duty 4, xbox live "connection interrupted"


try putting your xbox on the dmz in your routers settings. find your xbox's ip address and insert it into the dmz which leaves ALL security open but since no one can hack a 360 you don't have any worries, it worked for me! good luck

Prolem with xbox


well if it IS working, you wouldn't be here would you? XD
anyways go to the wireless settings and manually add your SSID and WEP/WPA if applicable. If this doesn't work, get back to me.

Xbox Live Connection Interrupted


Ok, all you have to do when it comes to buying a wireless reciever is to buy the microsoft brand one made for xbox live. (100 dollars) Once you have this;
1. turn of the xbox 360 and plug in the adapter.
2.turn on the 360 and go to the network settings option
3. this should bring up a page offering a view of you ip address and ect., go to the bottom link (3rd), and select it.
4. this should give you the option to select your wireless network, then connect to it and test the xbox live connection.
5. Once you pass the test, continue to hit "b" until you are back at the very main menu and begin playing!
