I live in a dormatory at the University of COnnecticut and XBOX 360 live works fine for 360 games. Ive got gears of war and madden to both work on live but when I try to sign on to live with halo 2, it says that there is no connection and offers to start troubleshooter. We run troubleshooter and it says EVERYTHING is working fine.. but still can't get into xbox live with halo 2. What could be the problem?? Also, sometimes i cannot join public servers for counter-strike PC. When i join a game, it lags up to like 2000 ping and can't join or see whos in the server. Other times, it works fine.. COuld this be connected to the problems with Halo 2??? THanks in advance foer any response.

Fiox you are so wrong. I play Halo 2 on my 360 online all the time. I don't know why yours doesn't work. Could be scratched.

It could be your ISP is interferring with Bungie's Halo 2 servers, and thta could be the problem thats not letting you connect to Halo 2 online

i am having the same exact problem. I live in a dorm at USC and we have to register the mac address of anything before we can use it on the network. before i did that i could not connect to xbox live. After, i was able to connect and play games like Lost Planet and Gears of War online, but I cant connect with Halo 2. At this point I am wondering if it is just a halo problem, or a problem with original xbox games in general. To test this i am going to try to go online with battlefront 2, but i dont really know if that is going to work. I have a feeling that the university is somehow blocking it, but i am not sure about that either. I did call them to try to get xbox live working originally and they said that they do not block live so i dont realy know what the problem is at this point. I did have my old xbox up here last week though and that was easily able to connect to live and play halo, so i also get the feeling that they are not blocking it. i hope this is enough information for someone to offer some help, thanks.

ok, were able to fix it, all we needed was a little router or switch. you just have to runthe xbox live through it and for some reson that works. we are not supposed to use switches or routers but we do anyway, so just try that, we have noticed that some of the games lag and are not sure if that is us or not, good luck

I'd suggest consulting the Network Admin for the dormitory you live in and get his perspective. I had this similar problem using a Netgear router, but switching to a Belkin router solved the problem. There was some issue regarding my ISP moving through a Netgear 6.0 or older

And yes, I play Halo 2 on xBox360 without a problem as well. That is one game they could not leave out 360 support for. Now my MLB05, yes, will not play on 360.

Do you have a hard drive attached to your 360? You can not play any original xbox games without the hard drive.

Aside from Hard Drive, Network, or Downloaded Content, I'm not sure what else could be causing your problems.

I have a problem with playing halo 2 on xbox live with my new 360. it says it cannot connect to xbox live and offers to start a trouble shooter. i do the trouble shooter and it says everything is up and running. I've tried to look for downloadable content such as maps aand stuff but it doesnt even have halo 2 in the xbox live market place. If any one has an answer to my problem can you please help me out.
