    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.

Computer won't allow me to log on :(


Hi Samantha, I am not sure what operating system you have but if it is windows 7 or windows 8, try rebooting and pressing the F8 function key as it just starts booting up. This should bring up the advanced boot options. You can then select Startup repair. Hopefully this will fix your issue.

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. 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 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.

It say do not disconnect


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support.

In a case where you are receiving a Do not disconnect message and freezes in that state even if you disconnect your iPod, the usual remedy is to allow your iPod's battery to completely drain. Then connect the iPod back to your computer and allow it to completely recharge. At that point, connect it to iTunes and perform a restore,

A restore will restore your iPod back to its original factory settings, but once it does, you will have your iPod back and should also be able to restore your iPod back to one its previous backups via iTunes.

Try this procedure and let me know if this helps.

Regards,
