Thank you in advance for your help on my network problems.
Here is the problem:
My xbox is having connectivity issues. It takes a long time just to get to the xbox dashboard. Then it sometimes does not even connect to xbox live (it is supposed to automatically). Then it takes an even longer time to sign into my profile (which is also set to do automatically but it wont). So i connect to my portfolio and xbox live. It says it is working just fine when i run the network tests (even my NAT is open). I try playing Halo 4 online matchmaking, it acts really slow. A few times i have actually gotten into a game or two and played, but it was really laggy both times and eventually kicked me out with an error saying:
"some xbox live content is temporarily unavailable" Status code: 80072ee2
Here is my set up and the resolutions i have tried:
I have a Motorola sbg6580 modem. I connect to the xbox wirelessly. I tried moving my modem closer; practically on top of my xbox to resolve any interference.
I tried connecting a ethernet cable (CAT 5e) but the xbox would not recognize the cable. I know the cable is fine because i can use it to connect my computer to the internet.
this problem has been going on for a long time now. I cannot play online because of it. I thought it might be an issue with the august system update, so i tried every possible way to download it. I:
tested my xbox live connection, it did not prompt me to download anything.
burnt the download to a disk, put it in my disk tray, rebooted the xbox, it would not do anything with it, Just labled it as a "mixed media disk".
put the download file onto an flashdrive, the xbox required that i format the flashdrive, so i did. then i put the flashdrive back into my computer to put the download file back on it, and the flashdrive was completely full with whatever the xbox put on there to make it compatible. So that didn't work
tried re-downloading my portfolio
clearing my cache
and of course, i already restarted my modem 100 times.
i am getting desperate. I will just cancel my xbox live subscription and get a playstation if this forum does not get me anywhere. I have had enough.
