Method 2: Turning off Modem/Router

 

1. Go to your Router/Modem and find the off/on button and then turn it off.

4. Turn the end that was plugged into the Xbox 360/ Slim Console into the Modem/Router.

If this method didn't worked for you, please move on to the next method.

 

 

Method 6: Factory Settings

2. Go to Settings  and then System.

3. Select Network Settings.

4. Select Wired Network  or Wireless Network, depending of what kind of Network you have.

To restore the settings, please continue with the following steps on your computer.

8. Find your connection, like Wireless Network or Local Area Network (LAN).

9. Write down the following Numbers from the items:

- IPv4- Adress

- Subnetmask

- Standard Gateway

10. Now make a unique IP-Adress for your Xbox.

You can do this for example by adding10 numbers to your IP-Adress.

For example, if your computer IP-Adress is 192.168.1.1 your Xbox IP-Adress can be for example 192.168.1.11

Note: Every IP-Adress needs to be ''unique''!

Now you've to set the numbers you have write down in your Xbox Network Configuration.

18. When done, Press the B button and test your Xbox Live Connection again.

 

If this method didn't worked for you, please move on to the next method.

 

Method 7: Port Forwarding

 

*Requirments*:

- Name of your Modem/Router

- Internet connection for PC

 

This is the last method I know.

Port Forwarding actully means ''Opening Ports''.

To do that, do following:

1. If you don't know how to forward Ports, please contact your ISP (InternetServiceProvider) for further assistance.

If you know how to Forward Ports, please skip step 1.

2.  Please enter the IP adress from your ISP into your webbrouwser.

Note:  If you don't know your corresponding IP-Adress, please consult the manuel or take a look at the site of your Modem/Router manufacturer.

3. Log in.

Note: If you don't know the name and/or password to log on, please consult the manuel, take a look at the back-side of your Modem/Router or contact your ISP.

4. Then you can start ''Forwarding Ports''.

Do following to enable them:

Port 53: TCP and UDP.

port 80: TCP.

Port 88: UDP.

Port 1863: TCP and UDP.

Port 3074: TCP and UDP.

Note: Some ports work only when TCP and UDP is enabled. If you have the ablity to select both you can enter the port one time instead enter them twice.

5. Save the changes you've made.

6. Test your Xbox Live Connection again.

 

If this method didn't worked for you, please move on to the next method.

 

Method 8: Contacting your ISP

 

If none of these methodes worked for you, the only option that's left, is to contact your ISP (InternetServiceProvider).

Proberly there's a hardware issue inside the Modem/Router itself.

Now it's your ISP time to figure out what's wrong with the Modem and/or Router.

 

I hope this was usefull!
