I can't get on live... HELP T_T'

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm totally at a loss as to why I can't get on live.

I've connected it to my router... the Xbox said it connected successfully. I checked the network info and the MT, IC, and NT on the xbox all say "1" which means they're working properly... It's an Xbox-compatible router (D-Link DI-624) with the right firmware for live. I've tried connecting directly to the cable modem (which didn't work). I've tried resetting everything (didn't work) I checked live status online and it says it's up and running...

All I'm trying to do is register... I have a brand new gold card here and I tried entering the code both in all caps and in lowercase... no matter what I do, when I try to submit the subscription code, it says something like, "Experiencing technical difficulties. Try again at a later time."

I've tried it over and over... It acts like it's connected, but it keeps giving me the "technical difficulties" error code.. (as if that even counts as an error code... doesn't help me at all). I googled it, nothing... It's like I'm the only one who's gotten this stupid code.

This is driving me stinking crazy. It's not fun spending all that money on a subscription card, getting psyched up, then spending over an hour fooling with the darn thing without success... I thought it was supposed to be "as simple as 1-2-3!" -_-'.... yeah right.

Any help would be most appreciated... I... don't know what else to try.

Whew...sweet. I finally went on live last night with my 360 and went to enter the key from the card that came with my 360 and it kept coming up as invalid even though I checked it. I tried 3 times and the same thing, thought I couldn't type or something lol

I called them... The woman tried to help... she even verified that my subcription code was active and should be working... She wasn't sure if Xbox 360 Gold subscription cards should work with xbox "version 1", but I'm nearly positive that they should...

She finally ended up advising me to return the starter kit, get a new card, and try that.

Somehow I don't think that will help :'(

Quick question... Is the name that you sign up for the same as your "gamer tag"... what everyone sees when you play with them?... or is that just your account name. I guess it's possible that someone else has already used my account name......

I'm going to swap this starter kit for another one just to appease the support lady, but we'll see... If anything, it will tell her that the card is not the problem.

It shouldn't be this hard -_-'... What happened to "plug and play"?...

If the name is already taken, then a screen will come up showing some suggestions, and a Generate More button.

If you have the XBOX 180 (That's what I call it ) Then just buy the Starter Kit, or a 12-Month Card, not a Gold card. Eventually if you get a 360 it just switches over to "Gold" for the 360. And the acct can be used on a 180 or a 360.

So have you gotten it to work yet?
