XBL connection

Basically, sometimes I can't find games on Mw3 for example, and if I dashboard it the sometimes disconnects me from XBL or just has none of the dashboard features (where it comes up with some xbl content is not available). This has only started happening recently. I have a good wireless open connection with unlimited broadband and if I test connection on dashboard it comes up fine, not sure what's happening. Annoying thing is sometimes it's fine, also reseting my router seems to help or turning the console off and on but that is hardly a preminent solution. HELP :(

Check your modems/routers. Sometimes those can stop working properly.

Hey, J! Sorry you are having troubles like this. Shouldn't be happening at all. With you being wireless, I'd like a little info about what device you're connected up to. What router do you have, and who's your internet provider? Also, do you have any wireless headsets like Turtlebeach headsets? These will help us pinpoint what is going on. Thanks!

Sounds like the local profile is out of date or corrupted, and when an app or routine asks for data from it, it causes the involuntary disconnection. I'd start by clearing the system cache (it's just temporary files plus game updates, automatically reloaded) by:
1) Please do Settings | System Settings | Storage
2) Move over any hard drive or memory unit (not the Cloud) & press (Y) on your controller & pick Clear System Cache.
3) When asked to confirm storage device maintenance, choose Yes.
 * Re-download *
4) Tap the silver Xbox Guide button
5) Select Download Profile (and if you don't see it, press the blue X button to make sure you're not signed in) and proceed with Profile Download.
6) Enter the Microsoft Account addresse for your Xbox LIVE gamertag when asked.
7) Enter the password for the Microsoft Account.
7A) If your account is an Xbox LIVE child account, the parent’s Windows Live ID & password is required as well to download your profile.
8) Pick the storage device for your profile (choose Hard Drive if you have one, or Memory Unit if you don't have a Hard Drive).
9) When the download completes you will be asked if you want the console to remember your password. If it's your home console, I'd say yes, otherwise I'd think carefully about leaving my profile unprotected on somebody else's Xbox!
10) Sign in, and retry.


Should that not resolve the problem. a sequential power cycle is a good step in clearing connection problems, and the order and timing of the steps is important to success:

 

1) turn off the Xbox and unplug the power supply cord from the back of the Xbox then

2) unplug power from the router (Some folks have a combination modem-router AKA 'gateway' or only use a modem with no router. If either, skip steps 3 & 6).

3) unplug power from the modem.

4) Wait at least 5 minutes then replug the modem/gateway power.

5) Wait 'til the light on the front of the modem/gateway which says BROADBAND, ONLINE, READY, CABLE or DSL is on solid (not flashing), then plug in the router. If you have a gateway instead of a modem and router or a modem with no router, then when that light says it's ready, skip to step 7.

6) Wait until the WiFi light on the router is on; you may or may not use WiFi, but it's still a good indicator your router is finished booting up.

7) Plug in and turn on the Xbox.  If the problem persists, please send us the info we need  so we may work on this further:
