I got a Motorola wired modem and it dosn't let me play xbox live why?


you may have to open a port that you xbox can use to connect to xbox live
    • 1 Connect only your Xbox and computer to the Internet. Disconnect all other devices. This is done to easily determine the Xbox's IP address, which is used in the Port Forwarding process.
    • 2 Open the Windows Command Prompt from the Start Menu. Click "Start > Run...," then type in "cmd" and hit "OK."
    • 3 Enter "ipconfig" n the command prompt. A list of IP addresses pop ups. Write down the IP address of your computer.
    • 4 Open your router setup utility through a web browser. Use the given directions from your router manufacturer to do so. Generally, the configuration page is opened by inputting the router IP address into the URL in the following format: http://123.456.7.8/ (where the IP Address number is unique to the router manufacturer).
    • 5 Open the "DCHP Client List" section of the router setup utility. This lists the devices currently connected to the Internet through the router, which is your computer and Xbox. Write down your Xbox's IP address (in this case, the one that is not your computer's IP address).
    • 6 Navigate to the "Virtual Servers" or "Port Forwarding" menu in your router setup utility. Most manufacturers have a side menu on their router setup utility, which is generally a section under your "Firewall" settings.
    • 7 Input the following port numbers and your Xbox's IP address into your router's port forwarding configuration:
      TCP 80
      UDP 88
      UDP 3074
      TCP 3074
      UDP 53
      TCP 53
      Placing these numbers in the port forwarding menu opens up the required ports that your Xbox needs to connect to the Xbox LIVE network. Save this configuration.
    • 8 Start up Xbox LIVE to check your connection. If you have no problem connecting, then you have successfully forwarded the required ports.

Cant use facebook entered wrong dob on setup


Okay, since an Xbox live account takes it's information from Windows Live, this is what you have to do:

Go to Hotmail.com
Sign in using your Xbox Live account e-mail and password

If you're not already signed up for mail, don't worry about it. Click view contacts if you're not already signed up.

In the top right corner click options
click More options
Click View and Edit Your Personal Information
Click Registered Information
Change your birthdate
click Save

Your age is changed!
This may or may not be enough

If it is: HURRAY! If not: read on

Sign on to your xbox 360
Open the guide menu
Go over to System setup
Go to Account Information
Click Promote Child Account
It will ask if you want to connect to Xbox Live
It will then take you to the account setup
Click continue
Then You will need to enter Credit card information. It is supposed to be a new one.
You need to accept a new terms of use then follow the prompts.
Next it will bring you back to the dashboard (you will be signed out) Sign in, accept the terms of use again, and you're all set. Have fun!

Cant connect to xbox live with vzaccess!! please help...


You have two options. Number 1, plug the 360 into a LAN port on your PC and set up the LAN connection to share the internet with the VZaccess connection. This will work as long as you are connected through vzacess manager.

Option number two, get an EV-DO router, wireless or wired, and use it to connect the xbox.


If using option 1, you may have to struggle at first with the IP settings. Make sure the LAN connection AND the 360 are set up to configure IP and DNS automatically. And make sure that you set the sharing options to include http and such. more help can be found by searching in Windows Help for ICS (internet connection sharing)

Cant chat to 1 of my freinds on xbox live


What is their internet connection speed?

Your friend may not have port forwarding on their home network and the network router filters the Internet NAT redirection...

Setting up a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on the router for the Xbox gives it unrestricted access to the internet; also puts your Xbox outside you routers firewall.

DMZ ports have to be programmed manually and the IP address also must be manually entered; The DHCP Automatic IP address puts the Xbox back behind the firewall; just duplicate the automatic DNS Server settings and the Netmask. Then choose a IP address outside the Automatic IP range (e.g. 192.168.1.175)

If that does resolve the issue see if the other Xbox needs a Live Update.

Ip address for xbox live


ok, firstly i hate these problems.
first things first, switch your hub off (leave for 2 mins) switch back on, this may refresh the ip address, also switch your xbox off.. then try agian.
Get back to me and let me know what happens from here.

oh also are you connecting your xbox to the pc? or directly to your broadband hub? if you can connect it directly to your hub, this should solve any problems

Xbox live connection: My NAT


its likely your router needs to have port forwarding setup on it, or you could try setting up your Xbox ip address as a DMZ on your router.

however some routers simply wont work, I had a voyager 105 using port forwarding but it still never worked till i changed to a Draytek

post more details of your router and what you have tried.

also you cant go far wrong visiting here

Xbox live


Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck
