Hope you are able to help. My son's Xbox keeps displaying IP Address failure. He has played on it before OK. Now cannot get past this failure point. Have looked on the net, sounds complicated. Can anyone give me simple instructions. The xbox is connected to a wired router that our Laptop is connected to and then to a modem (think I've got that right).
Any help greatly appreciated, as my Son is doing my head in to get this reconnected.

A router shares your internet connection with local computers and devices on your local area network. Microsoft's xbox live requires a connection to your IP address on a certain port. This will be a problem when using 2 xboxes so what you would need to do is contact your Internet Service Provider, explain that you are using a router and require an additional Static IP Address.
Once they provide you the details for this, you can manually set up one of the xboxes with the static details your isp has given you.
This should stop the 2 xbox conflicting over connecting to the internet, as they will be running on seperate ip addresses.
OK I think the easiest way to connect the xbox to the linksys, is if you configure your XBOX to have a static IP address, because the xbox will not have to pick an IP address every time you connect to the internet using the Linksys router and will not have conflicts with other PCs on your house, if you have any. What the linksys does is to convert your Public IP addres into a Private IP address, so example if your ISP gave you an IP address of: 188.8.131.52 that is your IP address for you, then the Linksys converts that number (NAT) into a private IP address so it can be share with many computer inside your house using a single Public IP address. The Linksys always transform it into 192.168.1.?=any number between 1-256 thats the defaults IP address from the manufacturer but you can change it if you want. Ok enough info about NAT or IP jeje.
Where going to use the default IP addres for an easier setup.
First: On your XBOX 360 dashboard go to SYSTEM, then Network Settings, then Edit Settings, then choose the option manual, here put the IP address= 192.168.1.33 (if 33 doesn't work use another numer like 20 or 45 just pick a number between 2 and 250) ; Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 ; Gateway = 192.168.1.1; DNS options put Automatic. And see if it connects. If it doesn't work just post it here, any problem that you have.
ok, this is what i have to do whith normal computers.
