To make a router connection to Xbox Live:

  1. 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.)
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. 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.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
  8. 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.

My router is not obtaining an ip address through WAN port. I use my rouders WAN MAC Address to identify my rouder to my ISP provider. I can see this MAc address under Internet Connection on the rouder...


Try using the MAC address of the ethernet adapter and clone it to your router. Your ISP might be recognizing the MAC address of the LAN card of the computer.

To get the mac address of the computer go to the command prompt and type ipconfig/all.

You may also need to contact your ISP to clear arp in their end, so that they will detect that you have a router. I hope this helps!

That happened to me once. You should check the wireless device or your ethernet cable( whichever one your using ). If your ethernet cable isnt plugged in on the way it will only let you log into xbox live and that may be it. Lastly try resetting your router and make sure all the wires are plugged in good.
Also Check your NAT settings. If your trying to connect to a friend, You or your friend most probably do not both have an OPEN connection. To find out if you do or dont, go to your xbox's network settings and run a test, if it comes up with a "More Information" button click it, and it will tell you what type of NAT, your xbox is set too. However if it does not come with a More Info button, then your xbox is OPEN.
Make sure both you and your friend do these tests.
If one of you is not OPEN, then you will need to either open some ports up or turn on DHCP and UPnP. But I wont go into detail until you've done the test.
Hope this helps.

Hello my name is steve


1. Make sure the Cable is properly connected to the back of the Xbox.

2. Make sure the Cble is properly connected to the inputs on the TV (Color coded if using component or composite cables).

3. Look on the large part of the cable where it plugs into the Xbox. There is a switch with two settings: HDTV and TV. If using the component cables (Green, Blue, Red + White Red), turn the switch to HDTV. If using the composite cables (Yellow, White, Red), switch it to TV.

4. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft at 800 4MY - XBOX . It's a toll free number but it isn't 24 hour.
