Xbox 360 probs
My son’s uncle bought him an Xbox 360 for Xmas. Only problem we’re having is trying to get on Xbox Live, we can’t get it to connect with the modem (checked pass key thingy-m-bob etc).
We’ve tried all the recommendations but still no joy.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Many thanksPosted 7 years ago
I’ve been onto the helpine guys, seems they weren’t much help, they kept telling me it was the pass key for my modem that was the problem, although I have no probs getting on the internet with my pc (or the Wii, or my son’s laptop!).
We were on for about an hour. I did get through to Xbox Live at one stage, then it told me I needed to download an update, which I started then it said it couldn’t download it. Then I couldn’t get back to Xbox Live.
Argh!!! I hate technology (apart from the cycle kind!!)Posted 7 years agoshreckMember
i had this prob crimbo day with my sons xbox,phoned the help line and got it sorted,had to reset network setting to default or factory settings cant remember the name its one or the other then turned the router and xbox off,then entered the wep code and worked fine,on the test did you get a big cross at the first stage?Posted 7 years ago
Yep, got the red cross at the first stage. This is despite resetting everything a few times, entering IP details manually as well as a lot of other details for the IP and modem.
Seems I have to call Sky and see if I’ve got the correct wep code (despite having my pc, my sons pc, his Wii to the same router).
I lost interest, to top it all off he can’t watch You Tube vids on his pc or play one of his online games as it keeps saying I need to download Adobe 10 (or something) but it won’t let me, I think it’s the anti virus or firewall software or both that’s stopping it and I don’t have a clue what I’m doing……………………….AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!
Jesus, I’m crap. Is it just me or is anyone else as techno-crap as me?? Surely I can’t be the only one.Posted 7 years agoallthepiesMember
I thought Sky routers came pre configured using WPA security and not WEP ?
WPA is the more secure, my brother’s sky box was set to WPA anyway.
Have you tried setting Xbox to WPA ?
You can check the Sky settings by accessing your router at http://192.168.0.1
Then select the Wireless option from the left hand menu and see if you can see the security mode (WPA / WEP etc).
The security code should be there also, make sure the xbox has both the mode and passcode correctly entered.
Oh, also ensure that the xbox is accessing the right wireless network (the SSID identifies the network) and you’re not actually tring to get on a neighbours network 🙂Posted 7 years agoOllyMember
have you tried it wired?
afaik, if you plug it in, it should “just work”
i have the old shape one so never tried wireless (it also sits next to the router)
i know my router doesn’t play too happily with mine though, its EITHER xbox, or Internet, and there is no “disconnect from xbox live” button in the dashboard, so if jose wants to get online while im playing, i have to play offline games, and physically remove the cable from the box.
xbox live is the SHIZZLE to be fair.
makes a pretty antisocial toy a fun social tool i find.
really enjoy teaming up with friends from uni across the UK to shoot at whingey american kids 😉Posted 7 years ago
also, playing against real people improves games hugely over playing against computer opponents
