For the past three days I've been trying to get online but everytime I try and connect to LIVE it asks me for an update. I accept and it installs, restarts and then asks again whenever I try and connect. It's a highly frustrating, never-ending circle. Sometimes it won't even get past the welcome screen and I have to leave it for hours before I can get into any options, if at all.
The update originally asked for more space (which is annoying on it's own as I only ever play two games and they work fine without.) So i plugged in a 4GB USB drive and installed the update fine. But then this circle continues.
I've tried turning restarting my WIFI router. I've tried moving the console and power supply to a completely open area. I've tried clearing the cache on the USB drive as well as reconfiguring it. I've tried leaving everything unplugged for hours. I've tried (when had the option) running a game and signing up through that but it does the same thing when I try to download my profile.
Does anyone have an idea of what this could be? I've trawled the forums for ages and not found anything. I pay my subscription by the month and have lost out on three days of use already. I'm coming close to launching the thing out the window and getting out the hoop an stick.
Any help would be MASSIVELY appreciated!
