    Do you have a cable/DSL modem that has multiple network jacks on the back (switch or hub)? Make sure your modem/router has DHCP turned on and configured correctly. Usually the factory defaults for DHCP work good on most routers.

It may be that the modem/router has to be reset everytime you change devices.

This is because the modem only recognises the devices that are first attatched to it. It will connect t the modem, but it will not get internet until you reset it.

I have the same problem with mine, can be a nuisance but it's the only way it will work.

Hope this helps,

Ps, you should have got a PS3.... =)

Ip address fails test connection


you need to set your 360's network to automatically detect your settings if you have other devices hooked up to the airport and they work it is not the Airport.

When it says IP address failed it has nothing to do with comcast it is your LAN having issues not your WAN

My adapter is Wired but my IP address Fails :(


I am not sure how to fix it through multi-wired interned but the best way to get connected to the Xbox Live is to give it a direct access to the internet.

Try to look into your manual you got with your Xbox and find how to connect it through other means than direct access.

In the meantime, before you find a way - your best bet is to just take your internet cable that is connected directly to the modem and connect it to the Xbox.

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.
