Xbox 360 ethernet problem

Hey, how's it going?

I was wondering if you'd got any assistance with the problem with your Xbox 360's ethernet port. I have the same exact problem.

We had a storm here and lightening struck nearby and fried our cable modem. That was easy enough to get replaced. Once we got a new one though, I noticed that my Xbox wouldn't connect to Xbox Live. It would tell me that the ethernet adapter was disconnected. I tried calling Xbox support but they were telling me my only solution was to have it sent in for repairs and that my warranty had expired.

Take care!

All the message means is it can't find the internet, so your internet must have went down.. your systems should still be working fine. I don't know much about using usb for ethernet, but that sounds like it would work no problem.

I dont know how to set up my xbox live with an eathernet cable can you help?


Hi there

Turn off the Xbox 360 by pressing the power button on the front of the console. Afterward, shut off your modem by unplugging its power cord.
  • 2 Insert one end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port located at the back of your Xbox 360 console. After that, insert the other end of the cable into your modem.
  • 3 Replug the power cord into your modem to turn it back on. Once it is active, press the power button on your Xbox 360 to turn it on.
  • 4 Navigate to "My Xbox" then "System Settings." Afterwards, select "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox LIVE Connection." You will be notified on-screen if the connection is successful.

    I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


    Please try the following steps below;

    To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
    1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
    2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
    3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
    4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
    5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
    6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
    7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
    8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
    If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

    Hope this helps!

    Try restarting without the Ethernet cable plugged in.

    Error E73 on my damn 360


    Hey regza,

    The "E73" message may indicate that a general hardware error has occurred involving the Xbox 360's ethernet port. Unfortunately, Microsoft does not appear to have released a FAQ regarding every potential Xbox error code so far, so there really isn't a way to determine if this is a simple wiring issue or actual hardware failure without contacting Microsoft directly. As such, I would strongly recommend giving Microsoft a call at 800-4MY-XBOX (800-469-9269) for further assistance.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Sincerely,
    Aaron

    8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.
