When I turn on my xbox it usually connects automatically, however, it does not. I try to test the xbox live connection but when I get to the screen that asks me if I'm using a "wired" or "wireless" connection, I select "wired" and a message pops up telling me to make sure that my ethernet cable is connected to the xbox and a router or modem(which it is). I powered everything down and then back up and the same result. Then I tried a new ethernet cable and nothing changed. I'm beginning to think there is a problem with the ethernet port on my xbox elite.
What should I do?
I've never had a problem for over a year with xbox live until I went on vacation for a week and came back and I couldn't connect.
I use a wired connection straight to my Motorola modem. I unplug my connection occationally to get other devises internet. So my xbox ethernet cable was not pluged into the modem for about a week.
