    Sorry that wont work I read that this has happened to several people. I think it has to do with symantecs and norton and possibly packet #3. So basically I still need help trying to get my network connections back by fixing this problem without being connected to the internet as I am unable to log on to the net Thank You

    If it is a Norton issure all you have to do is disable it and try it again. Do you have more than one firewall turned on? You might want to go into Windows security and check that as well. You should have only one turned on.



    Disable the firewall when setting up the network connection.

The new download fore the x-box isn't downloading even though I tested the connection and it connected to x-box live


Here's how I fixed mine. When I got the message stating that the download was unsuccessful I went into settings, then network, and I tested my network connection. During a network test it automatically logs your profile out, but when the test came back good, before it logged my profile back in, it asked me to update again. I hit "a" to accept the update and it worked this time. I think the key is updating with the profile logged out, which under normal circumstances you can't do, only during a network test.

If that fix doesn't work you might try going into your network settings in the dashboard and lowering your firewall restrictions, then updating, then putting your firewall restrictions back to what they were.

I have an internet connection but it wont allow me to play because update wont go through


Here's how I fixed mine. When I got the message stating that the download was unsuccessful I went into settings, then network, and I tested my network connection.

I hit "a" to accept the update and it worked this time. I think the key is that it has to attempt the update before logging your profile back in.

I saw another response that makes a lot of sense too in case my own fix doesn't work. Go to the network settings screen again, lower your firewall restrictions, then retry the update.

How to use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Note To perform System Restore, you must be logged on to Windows as an administrator. If this is your personal computer, you are likely already logged on with an administrator account. If this is a computer that is part of a network at work, you might have to ask the system administrator for help. To verify that you are logged on to Windows with a user account that is a computer administrator, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/admin (http://support.microsoft.com/gp/admin) To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
  1. Log on to Windows as Administrator.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
  3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
  4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.

    Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
  6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
  7. Click OK.
If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you are finished.

If the restore process completed successfully but the computer is still not performing as you want, go to the "How to undo a system restoration after you perform a System Restore" section. If you received an error message and the restore process did not finish, or if you cannot run System Restore, go to the "Next Steps" section.

Wireless switch is amber


Your computer is not detecting the wireless network, that's all. Leave it in an enabled state (even thought it's amber), and try a shutdown and restart.
If not, force it to search for wireless networks. It should detect.
By logging off the internet, what do you mean? Shutting your browser, disabling the wireless device under network connections, switching off the radio on the switch on your computer, or something else?
