Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Wired connection not working

The other day i tried to connect my X-Box 360 to X-Box Live but keep getting a no connection notice.

i have been connected before and my modem is working fine.
i've check the cord and router ports, both are working fine when plugged into another device (compter/wii) and even tried plugging the X-Box into a different port with different cords, still won't work.
also, i've tried to connect the X-Box to my PC, nothing happens.

i've heard there might be a reset button or i could be a blown fuse but i wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas or solutions before i open my system up.

any help would be greatful, thanks.

Before you open your system up its ALWAYS a good idea to send in the xbox or at least call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX to see what they can do. It sounds like a hardware problem. Unless your no longer under warranty, I NEVER EVER suggest even touching one screw on your 360 unless your 100% in control and you know what your doing. Sending in a 360 can take days/weeks depending on the problem and where you live.

If there is a problem that you had no control over they'll replace it free.


Good Luck hope this helped.

If you can't access the router to reset it, your next best bet would be a wired connection. A wired connection tends to be more stable for Xbox Live as well.

Hi my xbox 360 wont connect to my orange live box can you help


Wired? Wireless?
Does it get an IP?
Does it get DNS?

If it is not connecting wireless, try using a simpler encryption such as WPA(not wpa2, wpa2 has caused some people issues with the 360 adapter)

Also make sure you are using the wireless adapter microsoft made or one that connects to your Ethernet port.

Connection to x box live recken my head


two things, if you're using a wireless modem, unplug it from console, re-set it and let it connect and sit for a minute. then plug it back into the console. if you have just a regular modem do the same thing. make sure the wire connecting you're box to the modem isn't too long(over 7feet is too long). it wont update if you're not connected to the internet.

Connecting to xbox live failing


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.

Connect to wireless


I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in? (sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site. http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:d7LlkY7Zo1sJ:www.vnunet.com/personal-computer-world/hardware/2147007/microsoft-xbox-360+xbox+360+wifi+is+built+in%3F&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2 So that may be ya problem?
