    Let me know how you are trying to connect to live and it will be easier to diagnose the problem.
    Are you trying to connect to live by connecting the 360 directly to your modem.
    Or are you trying to share the internet connection via your pc.

    i think somthing was wrong with the servers or something cause mine and everyone elses on my friends list was messing. the circle thing at the dashboard would continue to go in circles and then it kept signing me off.

    i was about to punch my xbox

    I'm trying to connect it directly to my modem. I got my ip address from my cmd by typing ipconfig. When I run test connection it shows it is connected to the modem. And then like I said the ip[ address fails. I type the address in manually along with the dns and gateway. Do you think it might be the PPPoE (point to point protocal)?

    It's not letting me connect either. So, yeah, there must be a server problem. Anyone have any luck yet?

    I just bought 4 HD movies and Fable the other day, so it better connect soon, or I'll lose my HEAD!

    V13t0r I am having exactly the same prob as you. Hope live will be fixed soon. The servers are probably having mass amounts of new people signing up to live due to christmas. I've found that if you play a game live will stay on and you can private chat to people and send messages. I have found that when I try to search for games it is very hard to find one too. Also when I look at peoples gamertags it says that their gamerscore is 0 and their gamerzone is none and at the top where the bar should be gold it is silver plus I cant see their gamerpicture. But after waiting about a minuet their gamercard does load. However for the dashboard it just loads and loads and loads then signs me out.

    A few other news sites have been reporting problems since right before Christmas. Although it's not affecting everyone at once. It seems to be hitting areas.

    I just tried to log on to Xbox.com and that's not even up. I was going to bitch about losing a weeks worth of service and see how MS was going to compensate their LIVE members.

    I tried getting my sons 360 live going and it keeps saying that it can't connect. All the system tests come out good. I have my cable modem through Mediacom and it is a RCA model#DCM425. I also have my home phone through Vonage where my cable modem runs through the Motorola gateway model# VT2442. I tried running the ethernet cable from the back of the gateway to the 360. I have not a clue what is going on or maybe something that I may be doing wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
