IP address Ban. Not able to connect.

Account of being threatened to be booted offline it actually happened. Him telling me he uses some kind of download on the computer to figure out my IP which knocks me offline and my fellow friends. Will xbox support help stop him or just ban his account letting him make a new one to continue his frenzy. Please help xbox.

Since DDoS attacks are targeted at your IP address, and not specifically Xbox Live, there's nothing MS can do (just an unfortunate side effect of the way peer to peer gaming works).


The best you can do is follow these steps:

  • Reset your Internet router (see "Solution 2: Restart your network equipment")
  • Contact your ISP
  • If you are certain of the identity of the DoS or DDoS attacker:
  • Avoid the individual in the future when you use Xbox LIVE


More information about DDoS attacks can be found here.
