Cant get xbox live connected


You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Cant chat to 1 of my freinds on xbox live


What is their internet connection speed?

Your friend may not have port forwarding on their home network and the network router filters the Internet NAT redirection...

Setting up a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on the router for the Xbox gives it unrestricted access to the internet; also puts your Xbox outside you routers firewall.

DMZ ports have to be programmed manually and the IP address also must be manually entered; The DHCP Automatic IP address puts the Xbox back behind the firewall; just duplicate the automatic DNS Server settings and the Netmask. Then choose a IP address outside the Automatic IP range (e.g. 192.168.1.175)

If that does resolve the issue see if the other Xbox needs a Live Update.

Ip address failed


I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck
