There’s only a handful of issues you can experience on any Xbox console. The connection errors are most common and they are, arguably, the hardest to deal with. Now, Xbox offers the Network Diagnostic tool which should provide users with the important information and help them identify the connection problem at hand.

You can always navigate to the Xbox Support page and look up for the troubleshooting steps for by searching for the error. However, if you want a thorough inspection on your own, we tried to shed some light on the Xbox Connection Error Status Report detailed list.

Xbox Connection Error Status Report and how to understand it

There are dozens of different connection errors and it’s hard determining what exactly is the problem on your own. And the Xbox Connection Error Status Report is similar to Windows troubleshooting tools. It’ll provide you with the simplified log. However, if you’re willing to dig deeper, there’s the detailed report covering 14 important connection-based information. The problem here is that, well, all sections tags are abbreviations, without notable explanation for what they stand for.

Microsoft’s idea with this is that only tech-savvy users will need a detailed diagnostic report, and they’ll probably know what letters stand for. This is a mistake since every end-user should be provided with the intuitive interface with distinguishable explanations. For that reason, we enlisted all sections in the Xbox Connection Error Status Report in order to help you understand the problem you’re dealing with better. Have in mind that the available information is limited so some of the sections may not be correct.

  • Y – Internet setup (wireless or LAN setup code)
  • Z – Xbox Policy offenses (administered bans for Xbox Live)
  • ID – Identification code
  • L – Logs
  • Q – Error code
  • T – Type of connection
  • A – IP address
  • G – Gateway
  • D – DNS
  • N – SSID
  • S – Wireless security type
