Will not let me download or update xbox but will let me play games online and also communicate with people but the internet is working fine

use port forwarding or port triggering in your router to make sure that all of the appropriate ports for Xbox Live are open. To do this, you would need to make the Xbox IP address static first. has an easy to follow instructions on how to do this for many many different types of routers. It even gives you the instructions on how to specifically set the ports for Xbox Live.

Can play online but says cant sign into messinger

The "Can't connect to messenger" error does not apply to in game chat or voice messaging, but only to the version of MSN that can be downloaded from xbox LIVE. Go to network settings, then test the connection to the internet. If it says that your NAT type is moderate or High, you need to do some port forwarding on your router. You can find how to do this on Xbox's main site. The port to be forwarded needs to be number 3074. (or something to that effect)

Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...

there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
thank you.

Opening ports strict nat

The ports will need to be opened in your router, you can also try enabling DMZ

Read this microsoft page, it tells you the ports that need to be forwarded on the router

Please read the documentation that came with your router to figure out how to enable port forwarding, if you don't have a hard copy of a user manual, it should be included on a CD and its also available online.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360

If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Network address translation [nat]

Depending on your router, you will need to go to its setup. Go to the link where you can forward ports. (Port range forwarding). Then you will enter the information that you recieved when you called Xbox Customer Support. (Call them for it, it is free) Enter the information and you will be good to go.
