Xbox 360 elite is hard wired. says we must have an ethernet cable, which we do. any suggestions

1st step turn all items off Router and Xbox. Unplug all cables and double check them and make sure in good condition, no tears or kinks in it. Plug both ends back in to the router and the Xbox. Power the router back on and let it run for 2 minutes. Boot the Xbox up and go through the setup menu and make sure the Wired connection is selected. Also I know with the PS3 a DMZ selection is suggested. How you would do this is 1st go into your router usually by going into your internet explorer and enter the IP address for your router usually or You will need info such as IP Address for your router or your Main IP Address, as well as DNS numbers 1 and 2, as well as possibly need Subnet Mask which will all be displayed in your router main page. You can go to gaming and administration. Use an IP address that is outside of your router DHCP range such as if your router DHCP range is you would want to place a static IP in your Xbox such as for example. If you place your Xbox at a static IP such as I explained here you can then enter the same IP from your Xbox into your DMZ in the router. I hope this helps you out. good luck and happy gaming.

I can not connect to xbox live

99% of connection failure comes from the modem and router because it don't provide an IP address. Pull the power cable from the back of the modem and router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in and power up your XBOX 360 to get it working again.

How do i get my isp address for my xbox 360

IP Address is what I hope you mean. Assuming you have a router between you and your ISP(some call them a modem) you should get one automatically.

Plug your xbox 360 into the router. Reset the router(press the reset button for just a second, don't hold it otherwise that will erase the data on it) and you should get an IP when you try and connect

If you do not get an address, you need to manually configure it, and call your ISP so they can walk you through it. You can try and connect a computer to the router as well, if the computer can get online, use it's IP(by opening RUN if in windows, then type "cmd" no quotes and then type "ipconfig /all" in the black box that pops up)

Make sure you reset all network devices after connecting the cable to your Xbox 360. Depending on your setup, you may or may not have to do that every time you plug it in.

go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address? Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?

you need to set static ip's for the xbox 360 and the lan that is on the pc, easy to bride the two connections on your computer, then set static on the lan that the 360 is plugged in to, example:
360's static settings:
ip: sub: gateway ------------------------------- computers settings:
ip sub gateway

My xbox 360 says i need an IP adress

The XBOX is configured for connecting to a router or server that will assign it an IP address. Connect it to your router instead of your laptop.

Xbox 360 live on wireless router

In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

Xbox 360 elite live

It may have trouble recieving the ip addrees from the router, but not sure what switch you are using if you have a router you should connect directly unless its a wireless switch.
