Xbox 360 Wireless Connection problem

Having a problem connecting to xbox live. This is a new account. Currently have Qwest for high speed internet with 2 Wire 2700 modem.
Bought a Linksys RangePlus wireless router and hooked that up to 2 Wire, (on the main floor) no problem there. Then have a Xbox 360 wireless adapter connected to the xbox in the basement. Have an error:
TCP/IP connection status not enabled for this connection. Have tried repair on connection status, no luck. Appreciate any help, rather computer lame here so please speak slowly to this old broad.
Thanks, Bluefire

  • leiwsrobb Dec 20, 2008

    Hi. I have a wireless router in my living room and i have tried to use the spare socket to hard wire from the living room to the upstairs bedroom. I have correctly wired up the connectors as in a normal network connection. It hasn't worked and i wonder if the wire has to be a specific one compatible to the x box? as the original cable that came with the x box only has four wires where my cable has eight coloured wires. Any help or advice please?

SOURCE: IP address Problem when connecting to xbox 360 live

i had the same problem buddy. The problem might be that you hacve another system on the wireless network that uses that same IP address. This can cause a conflict that will prevent the xbox from logging on. Try deactivating other systems on the network to see if thats the problem

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!

(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router... you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wired router...)

Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet... so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to the wireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type into your browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to find your router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd... then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router address will be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browser and login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize it because you will need it later...if you have not changed the password its usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once you are logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports for your xbox 360 for it to be able to connect to xbox live with an open NAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once you get to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports for best performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forward these ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88 UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled... find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to 192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come in handy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go to network settings and manually change your settings... so if you have your ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me... change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computers that connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses... so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it so there arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told you to minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the command box into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in th e dns settings... first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are done with that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computer to your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... network connections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wireless connection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... and click on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

My xbox 360 live service is down


There are reason why you will not be able to connect to xbox live:
1. You should have an active internet connection.2. If you are on wireless connection, try to connect hard wired first to isolate interferences issues3. You need to chaccoueck if you have account related issues.4. Blocked accounts will lead to no connections to xbox live at all, I mean they will not allow you connecting to xbox live unless you create a new gamertag and start from scratch.
It will be better to check first the status of your account with Microsoft XBOX support, because if someone reported any abuse against your gamertag, your account might have status concerns.

How to get an internet connection for xbox live


Hello award ward,

To get a wireless internet connection for Xbox live, you will need a high-speed Internet connection such as cable or DSL and a router, gateway, or wireless access point (WAP) that is compatible
with Xbox live. If your XBOX360 console is first generation, you will also need a Xbox 360 wireless networking adapter. If you are using a wired connection, you will need a network cable. Plug the network cable into your router and the other end into your Xbox 360. On your Xbox 360 console, navigate to "MY XBOX" and then select "system settings" Next select "Network settings" and then select "Test Xbox Live connection" Select YES when the prompt appears asking you to update your software. After you become connected, there are two choices: Free membership of Gold membership. Once you are connected, navigate back to "My XBOX" and select your avatar and then select "Join Xbox Live" If you need any more help feel free to contact me. Thank you for using Fixya

When my Xbox is plugged in my phone line doesn't work.


The Xbox 360 Console is not compatible with a dial up connection or a phone line. It will only work with an Ethernet connection and some sort of high speed internet. You can also use the wireless built in the new 360s or purchase a wireless adapter for the older models if you have a wireless router with high speed internet in your home already.

How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?



Hi,

Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

  • 2

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.

    Recently upgraded DSL speed which required new modem (Q1000, Actiontec) which in turn stopped xbox live from getting a connection with older wireless router, bought the microsoft wireless N which is stated...


    I gather from reading this that you have another router that is connected to the Actiontec. The Xbox connects to the other router. You need to check the settings on the other router and the modem to see if the DHCP is enabled, also check to see what the subnet is set to. Make sure they all match. Then check those settings on the x-box.

    setting up xbox live is a very simple method and can be done easily if you follow the step by step process on the xbox. First of all, Xbox Live requires a high-speed Internet connection. There are many different videos on youtube that show you how to get an internet connection on the 360 even if you dont want to by a 100$ adapter or run a wire throughout your house. after you get a connection you can follow this process:



    after you get a connection you can follow this process:
    1. On the Gamer Profile screen, select I Want to Join Xbox Live and then press A. 2. Scroll to the Join Xbox Live option and press A. 3. Select Yes and press A to continue. 4. Enter your gamertag and press Start. Xbox Live checks the availability of your selected gamertag: • If the name isn't available, you're prompted to try another name. • If the gamertag is accepted, you are automatically prompted to link to your Passport account. 5. Select your current Passport account status: • Yes, I do(you have a Passport account). • After you sign in to an existing Passport account, you can skip to Step 16. • No, Create One(you don't have a Passport account). 6. If you select No, Create One, you can now choose your Locale. 7. Set your preferred language. 8. Set your birth date. 9. Enter your e-mail address. 10. Select a password, a secret question, and a secret answer. 11. Select Next and then press A. 12. Enter your first name, last name, phone number, and contact e-mail address. 13. Read the Terms of Use. 14. To accept the terms, choose Accept and press A. If you don't accept the Terms of Use, you can't create an Xbox Live account. 15. Pick your Xbox Live membership type. When creating a new Xbox Live account, you have two basic choices: • The Gold (paid) account lets you in on multiplayer games on Xbox Live. • The Silver (free) account lets you download game updates and purchase new content through Xbox Live. 16. Confirm your account type choice (and enter payment details if you chose Xbox Gold). 17. Choose a gamer picture. 18. Choose your level. 19. Decide whether you want to subscribe to e-mail information about Xbox Live
