    I have to admit, this is the first time I've heard of this. Do you have issues connected with a ethernet cable with the HDMI display cable used?

    i have no problem when using ethernet, but because it kind of inconvenient at my place i prefer to use wireless.

    I've seen this once, someone on our forum reported it, they fixed it by replacing the HDMI cable not sure if it was replaced with a different make or the same.

    Where exactly does the connection test fail? Between your console and the network, the internet, or LIVE?

    And just to confirm, if you remove the HDMI cable, you can connect to wifi properly, yes? Can you try using these HDMI cables with another console, preferably the same model? Thanks!

    Is your TV connected via wifi as well? I'm thinking there is a relationship between your TV's wireless connectivity and the Xbox. Could you try turning off the wifi adapter on the TV and see if your console is then able to connect?

    the tv have no wifi, i dont have the wireless adapter for it.
