anyone having problems connecting to xbox live

While it seemed like xbox live itself had some issues that started last night, and while they may still have some issues. it seems like a good chunk of the users unable to connect to xbox live are comcast users. anyone able to connect??!

Re: anyone having problems connecting to xbox live

The reason you see a "good chunk" of Comcast users having trouble is because Comcast is one of the largest ISP's in the country.  By definition, any widespread problem (like with the Xbox Live systems) is going to include a "good chunk" of Comcast customers.  Be careful not to drawn erroneous conclusions from that kind of anecdotal data.

Re: anyone having problems connecting to xbox live

I would like to know why my internet went to **bleep** after 2-3 months of good service. I mean I would play on xbox live pretty much for most of the summer but then all of a sudden my internet was all lag.

 

oh and another comcast tech is coming in on Monday to say its fine then they will leave then it will lag again. Its a never ending cycle. I wish Verizon was in my area so I could get some good internet service. (sigh)

Please go back to your own thread which unfortunately turned to **bleep** due to a troller instead of now hijacking someone else's thread and do the stuff in these links to the self troubleshooting sticky topics, then post the requested stuff there.

Giving respect may beget respect.

 

What's wrong with the term "guy" ?

 

It wasn't meant to be offensive on my part ! I offered to help you.. Hello !!!! Smiley Sad

 

You didn't post any of the requested info...

 

Have fun ! Smiley Happy

 

Maybe a CC employee will help you.

You don't send it anywhere, you post it here for diagnosis.
