I haven't connected my ethernet cord to my 360 because it automatically signs on to xbox live and I'm afraid I will get banned. Is there anyway to get around this, I want to play halo 2 over XBC. Another question, I dont have an xbox live gold membership, only the silver. Is it safe to use the xbox live silver membership to d/l demos and what not? Or do they only ban people who try to play games over xbox live? Thanks

that is not true.many people such as myself dont play backups online but were still banned.if you have ever played a backup without true stealth then you can be banned.silver or gold it doesnt matter.

what if I block Xbox Live Access for my console through the family settings? Can I do that, then connect the ethernet cord to it and play halo 2 over XBC? Would that be safe so that I wont get banned from Xbox Live?

I believe you can sign into your profile w/ the ethernet cord unplugged, once signed in, plug it back in, and it shouldn't connect to live automatically.

You should be able to set your DNS server on the 360 manually to (localhost) so it can't resolve the IPs to connect to live. It would still be able to connect to XBC since it connects through your PC.

The best way to do it is to manualy change the Default Gateway of the xbox 360.
this will stop any internet activity from the xbox but it will allow you to use streaming media and other tools
it is quite easy to do.
Goto your network setup.
Assign a manual IP Address and set you Default Gateway to your PC`s IP Address.
Press test setting and test Xbox Live.
it will sign you out, once the tests have started quickly cancel them.
Then go back then back again.
Now look at your Network setting they have saved ok.
Now you will not be at risk of ever going onto Live at all.

If you want to play online/systemlink try this.

How about manually disabling the ports required for the services. Reroute the following port to a different IP than the console, that way communication isnt possible. Wonder whether the ports are require for gaming.

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly: UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074
