there are plenty of people who CAN get online (beta or retail) with unmodded systems that it's just too much of a coincidence to think that all servers are down.

Games Tested: Xbox Live Connection Tester, MotoGP, Whacked, NFL Fever 2003 Beta, NBA 2K3
Xbox version 4034
BIOS is EvolutionX 2.5
Using the Xodus/Matrix
I have an upgraded HD
I use the EvolutionX dash and I’m having the system boot to yboxdash.xbe.
From the EvolutionX dash, I can invoke the MS Dash. From there, I run the network connectivity tester. It passes the first three tests (Cable connection, IP config, DNS resolution), then fails to connect to the MS servers.
I first tried using the retail CD that just arrived. No such luck. I then tried putting in my original, unmodified hard drive with the Xodus set to disabled. It updated the HD and everything proceeded like a new account. When I try to sign up for a new account (My account is on the upgraded HD), it's unable to connect. Test gives the connect failed message instantly when I run it from the MS dash.
It last worked for me around midnight (Central) on Sunday night/Monday morning. When I tried to connect Monday around 10PM Central, it would take about 15-20 seconds to report that it couldn't connect. Today, it comes back almost instantly saying it can't connect. That tells me that it's not a timeout issue from busy servers. I'm getting rejected. I'll bring home a plain old hub tomorrow and get a network capture of the login and post it on here if I can't discover anything myself. If someone could get a network capture of a successful login and a failed one using the same account, that would be awesome for analysis. If someone has a regular hub (Not a switch) and two Xboxes using the same account (One connects, the other doesn’t) and you are willing to help, just ask for assistance in capturing the network traffic.
I hope you're right and we're getting rejected temporarily. Otherwise, now's the best time to start working this problem out!

|I mean, if they had to buy a new xbox to connect to live, m$ would be losing money, right?|
Not quite. As I said at another post, modders who use copies are no good to MS anyway, these units will never make it to the break point, so if people have to buy another XBox to play Live original games, the this unit will make it to the break point, and even better, it will make the other unit even in about a year or two. Last but not least, if 30% of XBox sold so far are modded and half of them are willing to buy a new XBox just to play Live, MS would raise the installed system base in 15% from night to day.
If this is true, they would score twice with a single shoot: completely cut piracy on Live and higher console sales, wich looks nice on comparison charts.

That's exactly what I said on other post. They can have problems with their servers, but these problems are tending to be very selective and affect mostly (if not only) users with modded systems.

So for me if they ban me I'll just try to get my $50 back (prob not successfully) and they will lose out on the $100 or so they would have gotten from me in the next couple years. As it is I'll have a hard enough time playing through all the games I have cause of my mod chip
