I am helping a neighbour who is having issues with his XBOX360 S Console ethernet connections
The system was working fine on Sunday, wasnt used on Monday and then when he tried to use it on Tuesday he encountered the following problems. No changes had been made to the system in the meantime:-
All via the System Settings/Network Setttings menu :
no network seen & when selected get a message saying "To use a wireless Internet connection, connect an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to your console" (note S Console has integrated wireless)
To double check I connected my own wireless adapter (from my original Xbox360) and still get the same message.
Note that I can connect to the wireless network fine with my laptop, so know it is workign OK
Wired Network :-
(Have long ethernet cable plugged into router, but ethernet port on router does not show active when plugged in)
When trying to access the wired network connection on the Xbox get the message "To use a wired Internet connection, make sure an Ethernet cable is connected to both your console & your router or modem"
Tested the cable by connecting it to my laptop (disabled wifi on the laptop) and connects OK & route now shows ethernet port as active.
Looks like all networking functions in the Xbox are not working,. Is there a known fix for this or is it a case of taking it to the repair shop?
