You have to make sure that when you go to 'network settings' and 'wired connection', that you pick the same security option that your connection shows. (wlap or something) (hopefully it is the 'none' option) if it is none then you should have no problem. if it is one of the other 2 then you have to make sure that the password that you enter is identical to that of your modem and/or computer (it is case sensitive) hope this helps, if so please rate me...Thanks a lot.

My 360 pro wont connect online. it says "can't connect to your network hardware using static ip address" i do not know what a static ip is how do i check and fix that?


a static IP is when your computer's name (or IP address) doesn't change each time you log on. This is opposed to a dynamic IP that would provide a new IP address every time you go online. To fix this try these steps:
1. go to system settings on the xbox and select network settings. Restore factory defaults. 2. Restart your modem and router by unplugging the power source and waiting 30 seconds before plugging it back in
If all else fails, go to the xbox website and check under support or call 18004myxbox

I can't connect to xbox live, was ok 2 hours ago now won't connect. Internet is ok etc. I have tried all the usual solutions is this a live issue?


if you've done a power cycle on both your router and modem, your internet is active and your online gold membership is active, it may just be a problem with the live, very rare and I've never seen it myself
also try unplugging the wireless off the xbox for bout a minute, maybe have to go into network settings and "automatically set new IP address" good luck

My xbox 360 is not working


Log out of xbox live, and go back to your main menu. Press the Xbox button and go all the way to the right till you find "network configuration".

Once you've opened network configuration, go to "diagnose connection problems or text xbox live connection" (can't remember which it is). If it connects fine, great, it should be working -- if it doesn't, follow the on-screen troubleshooting guide.

If the on-screen troubleshooting guide doesn't help, then you will need to configure your xbox's network settings manually.

Go to your computer and go to Start Menu -> Run (or WindowsKey+R) and type in cmd.
Once the command prompt comes up, type in "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.

You should see network settings for your computer, you're going to need to copy the Subnet mask, Default Gateway, and the DNS Servers that are displayed for your internet connection.

For the IP Address, if your machine says something like 192.168.0.15, have your xbox be 192.168.0.169 or something high up there, so you won't have any duplicate IP conflicts.

Just FYI, this guide is written assuming that you're using a direct wired connection from your router to your xbox or that you're picking up wifi from your xbox.

Hope I helped to solve the problem. =) Good Luck.

How do i get my ps3 online using a wired connection wen system says optaining ip address


You need to check and see if your router is configured for DHCP. If it is not you will have to log into the router and change it. The PS3 is asking for an IP address from your router, if your router is set to static IPs only the PS3 will never get an IP from the router.

IP address


I had the same problem with my Xbox and Netgear DG834 v4 (wired) router. I bought a Belkin F5D7632 wireless router and that did not work either. I then bought an Xbox wireless adapter and it connected ok. I do not know why the wired connection does not work. The cable length is 10m.

Problem getting online.


Your IP number is probably not set to your IP, open up Command Prompt on your computer, type IPConfig. That will display your IP in a 0.0.0.0 format. Type that IP for the connection IP on your PS3 and it should work :) Hope this helped.

My ps3 will not connect to my wireless internet


Try setting a static ip address on the PS3:-

First you need to find a Windows wired or wireless device already connected to the network in order to find out the required settings

Windows XP
1. Click start --> (sometimes settings) --> Control Panel --> Network Connections
2. Double click on the active connection which will say connected underneath
3. Click Support
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Windows Vista
1. Click Start --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center
2. Click on "View Status" to the right of your connection
4. Click Details
5. Now the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, Primary DNS and Alternate DNS which are displayed should be noted.

Set these values under "manual settings" in the PS3 but add 1 to the last number for the IP Address as this has to be unique on your network
