Why do I keep disconnecting from the Xbox Live network?


Hi everyone,

So I have this issue whenever I try to play Portal 2 on Xbox Live. Within 5-30 min of playing I get disconnected from xbox live. It’s not the router I use because I do not loose internet access, plus my router is a beast and is meant for gaming. I have a wireless adapter for my xbox, but I’ve never had this problem before EVER. Can anyone shed some light on my situation?

  1. Your router might be a “beast”.but it’s doesn’t hurt to try to unplug it for 30 seconds then plug it in again just to reset it. Same goes for your wireless adapter.

    If that doesn’t work, then it might be your adapter.

  2. It could be the server the game is using, they can get overloaded sometimes. I don’t play Portal 2 so I don’t know if there’s an option for “local server” but if there is that should help.

  3. maybe a dmz issue or port issue, best to type your ip into web and just check out your secuirity settings,

    *hey BTW i read your question about your hp2010i, im thinking of buying one just curious did it allow hdmi output on your console or were u playing in nonhd settings? also was there any lag in response time or ghosting? =)))

    thx man any help be grateful cuz im buying new monitor for gaming and this looks quality, this or the asus vh236h.
