    THE CONNECTION FAILED!

    So guys last night and this morning I tried to get on to play my game and this message shows up...

    THE CONNECTIONS FAILED!
    You must be signed in to Xbox Live and the EA servers in prder to access the online features of this title.


    Funny thing is I am signed into live.....as for the servers probably not, but I am unable to sign in.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    I've never heard of that happening before.

    Seems like a pretty big game. Im in favor of waiting as long as possible for you to sort the situation out...but thats just my opinion.


    Even if you are from Iowa.

    Alright guys I sent a question email to EA to see if they have any insight. I don't know if they will help me or not but it was worth a try. I have been trying to log on all day to play but get the same msg over and over. I don't want to hold you guys up any longer so bondzai if you would put me on auto-pilot until I get this figured out that would be great. I will continue to try and keep you all updated. Thanks, Frisk

    I'm sorry this is a huge ordeal, I even went to the point of purchasing a new 360 gamer-tag.....that still didn't work haha. But I got my game in this morning, hopefully it doesn't happen again.

    nice to hear you got your game in. As to the problem, i could make a few random suggestions in the dark.

    First, and I assume you did this, Turning it off for a few minutes then trying again.

    If you have a router, its possible that it is lossing packets that are related to what it is you are trying to do but not signing into live or ea servers.

    If its a wireless connection, you may have a signal problem.

    you might try turning off your router for a few minutes then turning it back on. Sometimes they need to have there memory flushed out.

    Its possible that your router settings could be forwarding a port to a different location on the network. If that port is used by NCAA you will have problems whenever that port is attempted.

    You might also try updating the drivers on your router.

    Keep in mind these are complete guesses.

    I have a PS3 connected via wire to the same router. No problems on PS3, all problems on 360 haha. Thanks for the insight tho.... I have never had this problem in the hundreds of games and times I have logged on the past few years
