If the xbox is hooked up with ethernet cable then make sure all settings are set to automatic. If your xbox is hooked up with a wireless device that is set up to router then, make sure all your mac addresses are correct and mae sure you set your IP's and DNS codes.

My xbox doesnt want to pickup the ethernet connection

There are two ways in which you can address this issue:

1) Attempt to connect wirelessly. You can access this feature via "Settings" on your XBox home page. After setting up your XBox to automatically connect to your internet router (by entering the password and name), you should be able to log into and play on XBox Live.

2) Connect via ethernet cable.
Although you've already tried this, it's possible there is an issue with your modem and not your XBox. Routers and modems usually have a shelf life of about 2-3 years-- if you have had yours for longer than that, it might be time to invest in a new one. Another issue could be a faulty ethernet cable-- they're usually pretty cheap (around ten bucks), so if the above fixes don't work go into a local electronics store, purchase one, try it out, and if it doesn't work return it immediately and you should get your money back.

Just got xbox live using the old xbox(not xbox 360)we cannot figure out how to use it - what gets hooked up to the laptop, modem, console , etc. looking for step by step instructions to set it up April

I see you did not mention that you have a router. You will need a router to connect the laptop and XBOX at the same time. If you just want to connect the XBOX straight to the modem you can follow the instructions below.

If you are using a cable modem you just have to plug it in the modem then turn it off and on.
if you are using DSL then you have to setup the XBOX to connect via PPPoE that you can do via the network settings then put in your username and password

I just got this new x box 360 to replace the older version x box, but i am not able to connect to x box live, the wep key is correct, but it still says there is a problem and it will not connect. I have...

Likely is not an issue with your Xbox 360 but instead an issue with your router being able to communicate with the Xbox 360. I had a similar issue. (eventually I was not able to use a wep key as my router was not syncing up with any of my devices proeperly with the wep key. I factory reset my router and instead closed my router to allow only specific mac ids to allow access instead of using the wep function)

If you are in control of your router then attempt (for testing only) to open your router so that it does not require a security wep code. If you are able to connect your Xbox 360 via this route then you know that it is an issue with the router trying to communicate via wep key use.

Also, try connecting via lan line and making sure that your router is able to work with your Xbox 360. Eliminate all scenarios before you take back your Xbox 360 or any other device when dealing with routers. Likely culprit is not the device but the way the router is trying to communicate with the device.

Xbox has been connecting no problem via netgear router. Suddenly it has stopped and cant go live any more. Dont know how to work out if it is xbox wireless adaptor or netgear router.

Do you have any other computers or game consoles hooked up the netgear router? if the other computers etc. can connect to the Net via your router, then it sounds like your Xbox adaptor might have failed.

MTU fail

ok well I found a fix but it may not be simple. anyway, i got my xbox360 to work off of my girlfriends laptop by feeding internet to the laptop from the cable modem via usb and then from the laptop to the xbox360 via ethernet. just right click usb connection in network connections and click sharing tab, then activate sharing and tell it to share connection with lan connection... you can also share through wireless if your xbox is wireless. I tried running all this through a dsl wireless router and a basic hub and both of them gave ip address and mtu errors... good luck
