    Hey Ricracrok

    Because of the way Open Networks work like BT FON its basicly a public network that needs a log in and the xbox cant handle that.

    What you need to do is connect your xbox to a PC or Laptop with a enthernet cable. Set the Network up on the PC and share the network with your console in Network Setting. This guide will talk you though those steps

    wifi issues

    So recently my xbox one has not been able to connect to my wifi network. It has before in the past and one day up and stopped working. I've called xbox customer support and went through troubleshoot steps with them but so far they have not helped. The wifi network shows up but whenever i try to test the network connection i get an error message that says 'cannot get an IP address'. I tried a wired connection and that works but i am not able to keep it wired all the time. If anyone might have a solution please help!

  3. Can't get smartglass to connect

    I figured it out for me and hopefully it will help someone else. It was 2 things. One I had the old IOS app, downloaded the new one. Two my wireless network beams a 2.4 GHZ and 5GHZ channel. My phone was on the 2.4 and the Xbox was connected to the 5GHZ channel. I connected my phone to the 5GHZ channel wifi and now all is bueno.

    Could my Xbox be causing my lag...?

    1. Your xbox - network connection wifi or lan? (if wifi then try lan and look if it resovle the problem)

    2. Do you have another devices conected to network in the same time as your xbox (like pc, your mobile phone etc)?

    (try to shut it down and look what happens if you xbox is the only device on internet. I speak from personal experience

    When I am on xbox wifi and have my pc lan connected - then it slows my xbox down)

    Xbox one x won't play games offline.

    If you previously have had it connected to WIFI, go into your network settings and forget all the past connected networks. Then give it another try.

    Smartglass won't connect to Xbox One

    Is your Phone/Surface connected to the same router that your Xbox One is connected to either by wifi or network cable? Or is your Xbox One connected to another router/modem to the one your phone/Surface is on?
