I started up my console this morning and it took a long time to get to the dashboard. It sat on the Xbox Logo for about a minute then it sat on the Loading Dashboard screen (the spinning circle) for about another 2 minutes. After I get to the Dashboard my xbox laggs so slow and whenever I tried to look at my messages, start a game, or look at my friends it freezes my xbox. That was the start of my problem
I then I turned it off, removed the HDD, and reinserted it. Rebooted and the same thing happened.
So I tried to clear my cache a couple times. Eventually I was able to clear my cache. Rebooted, same thing with the xbox logo and the dashboard loading screen but now rather than it going to my dashboard it dissconnects me from Xbox Live.
I then unplugged my ethernet cord and booted it up. It worked perfectly. Only took 5 seconds to boot up to the dashboard.
I plugged my ethernet cord back in, booted it up, and the same problem keep happening. Long bootup time and then it disconnects me from Live.
I tested my connection to xbox live and it says everyting is fine. Tried logging in to my account after I booted it up offline. It stays logging in for about 4 minutes till is says cannot connect to xbox live. I have also tried logging into a second account but same thing happened. I even restarted my router but no luck.
So my problem is that my console is super slow at booting up while plugged into my router and dissconnects after it finally gets to the dashboard or trying to connect to xbox live while offline. But it boots up perfectly if I unplug the ethernet cord.
I have an old xbox that I recieved for christmas in '09
Thank you for your time
