You need to plug your 360 into a router to get an IP address.

I have a xbox 360 tryin to get on the xbox live but wont let me


1. go into your modem through internet browser and type in ip address...(type find my ip address in google if you dont know it).
2. Enter username/password...("admin" is usually the username/password by default...if you cant get in, there is a reset button on your modem...very small...might need a pin to poke inside...PUSH AND HOLD IN FOR 30SECONDS and repeat step 1 and carry on from there).
3. Find these settings in the modem: -LOCAL NETWORK / UPNP......enable it -DMZ HOST.......type in your ip address you typed in to get into your modem....(you might not have DMZ which is even better so don't worry about it).
-VIRTUAL SERVERS/PORTFORWARDING.....type in the following:select custom service or name and type in i.e XBOX360 AND TYPE THESE IN:Port start 3074 port end 3074 and TCP protocolPort start 27014 port end 27050 and TCP protocolPort start 3074 port end 3074 and UDP protocolPort start 3478 port end 4380 and UDP protocolPort start 27000 port end 27030 and UDP protocol
5. reboot modem.
6. Go in XBOX network settings and in basic settings manually type an ip address that is within your dhcp range...( dont worry what this means just follow the example) to your normal ip address i.e if your ip address is 10.1.1.1 then you would use 10.1.1.100 etc, 255.255.255.0 in subnet mask and your main ip address in gateway.
7. DNS settings should be automatic.
8. reboot XBOX you are ready to go.

HOPEFULLY :P

Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse


Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

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.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.
