1. check your netwok calble properly
2. check your router internet connection
3. follow these steps

Accessing network settings loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To access the Network Settings area, follow the steps for the version of the Xbox 360 Dashboard that you are using.

New Xbox Experience Dashboard:
  1. From the Xbox 360 Dashboard, select System Settings in the My Xbox area.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.
Legacy Xbox 360 Dashboard:
  1. From the Xbox 360 Dashboard, move to the System blade.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Edit Settings.
IP settings, IP address, subnet mask, and gateway loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Collapse this imageExpand this imagenetworksettings-basic.jpg

After you select either Configure Network or Edit Settings, you will be on the Basic Settings tab, which contains your IP and DNS settings. When you select the IP Settings block, you are prompted to select an Automatic or Manual configuration. If you select Automatic, the Xbox 360 console will try to automatically determine your IP settings from your network or from your modem or Internet service provider (ISP). This option is recommended for most users.

You may have to or prefer to manually configure the IP settings, especially when a static IP address is used. This is necessary only if your ISP has issued a static IP address, or if you have configured the router to issue static IPs (and DHCP is not used). To manually configure the settings, select Manual, and then enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway by using the keyboard on the screen. When the information is complete, select Done.
DNS settings, primary and secondary DNS servers loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); After you select either Configure Network or Edit Settings, you will be on the Basic Settings tab, which contains your IP and DNS settings. When you select the DNS Settings block, you are prompted to select Automatic or Manual configuration. If you select Automatic, the Xbox 360 console will try to automatically determine your DNS settings from your network or from your modem or ISP. This option is recommended for most users.

You may have to or prefer to manually configure the DNS settings, especially in scenarios in which a static IP address is used or where DHCP is not available or not offered by the ISP. To manually configure the settings, select Manual, and then enter the primary and secondary DNS server names by using the keyboard on the screen. When the information is complete, select Done. Note You do not have to enter a secondary DNS server to connect to Xbox LIVE. A secondary DNS server is required only if the primary DNS server has technical problems.

  3. Follow the instructions to select your wireless network, select your wireless network name, and then enter your wireless security information.
  4. Select Done.
PPPoE settings loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If your Internet service provider uses PPPoE authentication, you have to enter the settings in the Xbox Dashboard if you have a direct connection through a modem. If you use a router or a gateway instead, leave the PPPoE settings blank because the router performs PPPoE authentication.

To learn whether your ISP uses PPPoE authentication and to learn the correct PPPoE information, contact your ISP.To configure the PPPoE settings on your Xbox 360 console, follow the steps for the version of the Xbox Dashboard that you are using.

CAN"T SIGN IN TO XBOX LIVE


You might not have been banned. Not being able to connect to the DNS or having it fail can be caused by a few things:
The DNS address serves couldn't be reached
The info on the DNS server couldn't be snagged from your ISP or the DHCP server
The DNS values in the dashboard are wrong.

I don't want to come off like I am insulting your intelligence, but check your internet connection to make sure you have the ability to connect. I'm sure it is all in proper order. So the next thing you need to do is check to see if you IP is set and passes all the tests. If it isn't then you can click the more link on the test page to follow the directions on how to fix it.

You may also want to check out if you are using a XBOX live compatible ISP. Click on Learn More to see if you are using the right ISP or to adjust your settings. You can also check out the connectivity wizard to find out if there are some other issues revolving around this.

Still running into problems!?!?!? try running the modem directly into your XBOX. This has helped me in a few time of need.

Here are some helpful links on what you can do when your DNS fails:

THINGS TO TRY loadTOCNode(1, 'whattotry'); Direct connection with a modem only loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. If you are connecting to Xbox Live by using a modem that is connected directly into your broadband socket, your IP address settings are obtained from your ISP. Set your IP address in Network Settings to Automatic. 2. If you use a static IP address that you obtained from your ISP, you must manually enter this address in the Dashboard. Contact your ISP for their static IP address if you do not know it. If the IP is not static, continue with the rest of the troubleshooting. 3. Power cycle the modem. 4. If your ISP requires PPPoE settings, verify that you have entered them correctly. 5. If your ISP does not use PPPoE authentication, do not use these fields in the Dashboard. Shared connection with a modem and a router loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Power cycle both the modem and the router. 2. Try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox Live by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. • If this setup works without the router, there is a configuration issue with the router. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. 3. Verify that your router's DHCP service has been enabled. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. 4. The IP address that you entered in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Set your IP settings to Automatic. 5. If your ISP requires PPPoE settings, try to connect with only the modem after you enter the PPPoE settings in Network Settings. • If you can connect, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router. 6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section, turn off all the devices on the network. Try to connect with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected. • If this works, there is a configuration issue on the routers DHCP server. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. Shared connection with a gateway device (combined modem and router) loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Make sure that the device is turned on. 2. Verify that there is activity with the blinking lights sequence WAN, ADSL, and Internet connected power. Note These names will vary from model to model. 3. Power cycle the gateway device. 4. The IP address that you entered in to the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Set your IP settings to Automatic. 5. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section, turn off all the other devices on the network. Try to connect with only the Xbox 360 console on the network. • If this test works, there is a configuration issue on the gateway DHCP server. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Verify that you can browse the Internet. If you cannot browse the Internet, Internet Connection Sharing is not configured correctly. 2. Power cycle the modem. If the modem does not have an on and off switch, unplug the modem from the power outlet. You cannot follow this step if you are using a USB modem. Instead, go to the next step. You must follow this step if you are switching the modem between the Xbox 360 console and a computer. 3. On the computer, click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK. 4. On the View menu, click Tiles. 5. If the connection is listed as Firewalled, the firewall may have to be configured. See your firewall documentation. 6. Enter manual settings in the Dashboard for IP address, subnet mask, DNS address and gateway: • IP Address : 192.168.0.2 • Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 • Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1 • DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1 • DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1If none of this works you might be banned. If you modded your xbox360 or for downloading game saves from the internet to boost you gamer score. You might be banned!
