Solution

To play games offline on your console when it is banned, follow these steps:

  1. Physically disconnect your network cable or remove your Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adaptor from the console.
  2. You will have to turn off the automatic sign-in so that you can play games offline. To turn off auto sign-in:
    1. Restart your console.
    2. Select No if you are prompted to update your console software.
    3. Press the Guide button on your controller.
    4. Go to settings and then Profile.
    5. Select Sign-in Preferences.
    6. Set Profile Auto Sign-in to "Off."
    7. Press B on your controller to return to the Xbox Dashboard.

Your console can now play your existing games offline. Any future attempts to sign in to Xbox Live or update your console software will result in an error.
