I typed the stuff down below because I lost my connection to Live and I couldn't figure out how. Xbox.com is down, however, and I remember getting a message saying the system would be down. Is it tonight?


Help with XBox Live > Apple shared connection?

I have my airport express giving wireless internet to my powerbook. I have my 360 connected to an ethernet cord with my mac, and I have succesfully shared my internet through it's ethernet port. I can play X-Box Live just fine, sometimes even without lag and definitely while simultaneously using the internet.

However, tonight I was playing and mid-game my 360 told me I lost connection. And I cannot reconnect to X-Box Live. I ran the "test connection" and while network adapter is wired, ip address and dns are confirmed, something called "MTU" is not.

The "More Info" tab states that maybe my airport express is not correctly set up, although I'm not sure just how this could happen.

Its been up and down for me the last two days. I was downloading a movie sunday and it went down. Last night I was downloading a movie and it went down again.

Maybe microsoft doesn't like me downloading so much stuff. :)

Are they updating their servers to get ready for the massive Halo 3 demo downloading? That's just around the corner, isn't it?

Either that or to allow for more content to be downloaded. They said awhile back they were going to start a iptv service for xbox live.

I posted another thread about this last week, xbox said they were upgrading the servers as orignally scheduled, I wouldn't be surprised if they were priming up the servers for the Halo beta around the corner, might even see some all new, never before seen content in the Marketplace.
