The reason for this part to fail differs along with the difference of the type of connection you are using to connect your Xbox 360 console as follows:

a. Direct connection to modem:

1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live". 3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Edit Settings” then “Additional Settings” tab then select “Advanced settings” & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the “Alternate MAC Address” part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you’ll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
If you faced any other kind of troubles with this part failing even after you tried these steps please check me man

I have a 802.iin in my windows Xp tower, it works but internet explorer still says offline? Please help


Hi Sarah,
Click on Start.
In the Run box type cmd.exe
This will open the Command line window
In this window type ping yahoo.com
Press the enter key

f2801de3-8dec-4256-8de4-b330799d19b8.jpg

You should see an image like this one above.
If your network card is set up properly you will have TTL (Time To Live) values. If it is not set up correctly you will get Timeout values.
If you want to see if your network card has gotten a good IP adress from your router, stay in the Command window and type ipconfig
If you see your IP address is 169.x.x.x Windows has assigned your IP address and it is not valid on your network.
You need an IP address from your wireless router. This can be manually set by you or delivered via DHCP via your wireless router.
Here is a link on how to do that:

Can't get windows xp home edition to recognize wireless printer, even after assigning printer TCP/IP address. Windows 7 computer prints to it, but the Windows XP computer can't even find the...


Hi!

You din't wrote what's the model of your printer, but I think we can find a solution:
1. Try to ping the IP adress you assigned to the printer. If that works, please download the latest drivers or installation software from the manufacturer of your printer (or second option use the installation disk that came with your printer). If it does not reply to ping, be sure the IP adress you assigned to the printer is in same range as the IP adresses on your network.
2. It is possible that the installation software itself manage to find the printer on the network, and that means the problem is solved
3. If not, install the printer as it is local attached (e.g USB or LPT port)
4. After installing as local printer, please go to printer proprieties, go to port, choose add a new port, choose standard tcp/ip port and write for the port the IP adress you assigned to the printer.
5. Apply changes and ...that's it.

Please let me know if it helped,

Good luck!

On my xbox 360 i can't connect to my friend and he can't connect to me and he told me i needed to change my router settings and i don't know how too and i have a DI 624


You trying to do a system link? If so then you just need to use the network cable you got with the xbox360 put one end in your computer and the other in your friends xbox. This will link your two xbox's without the need of going through the router. If you want to use the router to connect each other you will have to set up the network IP addresses that are set for your network manually. I can't tell you how to do this as I don't know anything about what network setting you using. If you want to connect to your friend over xbox live to play together sign up for select join xbox live from your avartar screen and sign up for xbox live you both will need an xbox live gold account. Once your gold accounts have been set up add each other as friends and then you or your friend can invite each other to games just remember that you both need a copy of the game you want to play in any case.

Hello, my computer has an 169 ip address, i've tried to renew the ip it wont renew it, but other computer works fine on the same router, any suggestions how can i get rid of that 169 ip address? thanks


First make sure your network connection is plugged in and working (i.e. look where the cable goes into your computer and has a green light on near it). 169's a re the windows default when no connection is available.

Then, if the cable (or wireless connection?) is OK, click on start > control panel> Netwok and internet connections>

Click on your Lan (ow WLAN?) connection and hit properties.

Navigate down to the 4th (or 5th depending) in the top box to TCP/IP and highlight it, hit properties, and select "automatically configure" for both the IP adress and DNS Servers, hit Apply, then OK, wait a few seconds and you should be good (assuming it's not actually your router handing out the "169" adress.

If all is not well, try a different network cable or port on your router, or get back with more detail.

In the start menu, bring up Command Prompt. In it type IPCONFIG and it will display all your connection details, make a note of them.
The router should pick up your IP automatically?

XBOX LIve help - wireless network adapter


Go to your Airport Utility, then Option-Click the radio setting button to reveal a drop down menu, from there, select "b/g compatible", not "n (b/g compatible)". That takes away the benefits of an 802.11 n network, but it gets the job done with 54 Mbps.

Next up is to Option-Click the button for encryption setting and select "WPA Personal". In DHCP settings under Internet, using the 360's MAC address, reserve an IP so it stays consistent. Finally, in your NAT options, select the 360's IP address as the "Default Host" to prevent any Live functionality issues, and restart your Extreme Base Station. Once you go to the network settings on your System blade, you should see your WPA-encrypted network show up. So your 360 and Airport Extreme can work together with encryption, although you kind of neuter the Base Station in the process.

System error


Your computer and another computer are sharing the same ip address. Unplug your modem for 5 minutes than plug it back in, this should change your ip adress and inturn fix your problem. If this fails than unplug your modem for 8 hours (overnight) and that should definetly change your ip address. If that fails than call your internet service provider and they can walk you through the steps to change it manually. I could explain the procedure but its better if they walk you through it step by step.
Let me know how it goes. Good luck.
