I AM SIGNING UP 4 XBOX LIVE AND MY INTERNET CONNECTION FAILED IN RESULT OF AN INCORRECT SECONDARY DNS SERVER IM WONDERING WHERE DO U GO 2 FIND THAT


Have you tried dns settings in automatic? I take it from your post that you have the primary dns server, my primary and my secondary has only one number difference,
primary 194.168.4.100
secondary 194.168.8.100
you only have 9 numbers to try so its worth a go, I hope this helps because I know from experience what a frustrating pain in arse this can be.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

If you are using an access point or a router to get onto the internet you have to ensure that the unit has been set to accept the Xbox 360 as an authorized unit.

Cant connect to xbox live with vzaccess!! please help...


You have two options. Number 1, plug the 360 into a LAN port on your PC and set up the LAN connection to share the internet with the VZaccess connection. This will work as long as you are connected through vzacess manager.

Option number two, get an EV-DO router, wireless or wired, and use it to connect the xbox.


If using option 1, you may have to struggle at first with the IP settings. Make sure the LAN connection AND the 360 are set up to configure IP and DNS automatically. And make sure that you set the sharing options to include http and such. more help can be found by searching in Windows Help for ICS (internet connection sharing)

Xbox live


2 Solutions-----

Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

Results should come up (for wired router)

Network Adapter - Wired
Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
IP Address - Confirmed
DNS - Confirmed
MTU - Confirmed
ICMP - Confirmed
XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

If results come out to be
''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.


Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

Best of luck

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:

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.
