    Basically, the XBOX is telling you that it cannot obtain an IP address. (IP = internet protocol) connect to the internet. If you've connected this xbox to the internet via the wired connection, be sure that the cable is properly connected to your router or cable modem, etc.



    To help you any further, I'll need to know exactly how your internet connection is setup in your home. Do you have cable internet? DSL?



    What about hardware? Do you use wireless or wired, what type of router do you use, etc...



    Let us know, and we'll go from there.

Cannot connect ot xbox live my ip address test fails


if you dont have a router, you can either have the xbox or the pc conneted to the internet, not both. you have to have an eithernet cord or a usb 2.0 high speed usb chord that goes directly from the xbox to the modem. you cannot go from the modem to the computer then to the xbox.

Ip address failed


In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

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.
