Xbox 360 ics apipa

Hi, I have an xbox 360 connected through an ethernet cord to my computer (ics), which is upstairs, and i have a wireless network card in the computer.I have a router downstairs hooked to a modem. i have two computers wireless connected and two other computers directly connected through ethernet. my router is a wrt54gsv4 running firmware dd-wrt. I have the newest model modem and I have Cox internet.
Im running windows xp service pack 3. my tcp/ ip are set to automatic.

The problem is My computer's local connection, that my xbox 360 is connected ICS to, is set to apipa (169.254.x.x)
that means i can't connect to xbox live.

Things I've tried:
ipconfig/release - ipconfig/renew
setting my tcp/ip for local and wireless. (only allows my xbox to connect and stops wireless)
reseting my router and modem.
restoring the settings on my router.
repairing connection (both wireless and local)
using a different cable.
calling xbox 360 support, calling microsoft (but i think i dont have a genuine windows) calling cox, and calling linksys
then at my friends house I tried: hooking my xbox 360 to a router through ethernet which was connected to a modem but i could not connect, my error was something like xbox 360 is connected, but cannot recieve xbox 360 live.
the funny thing is, using the same xbox 360, my friend put in his hard drive and it worked.
one guy i talked to was a little sketchy but he said that it wasnt connecting because the xbox was on the same ip as another... even though i was only on one, lol, but he may have had a point... so i changed my ip address for the xbox 360 and it still didnt work.

so what im trying to say is that im begging for help!
please please please help! :D

(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router... you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wired router...)

Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet... so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to the wireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type into your browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to find your router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd... then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router address will be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browser and login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize it because you will need it later...if you have not changed the password its usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once you are logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports for your xbox 360 for it to be able to connect to xbox live with an open NAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once you get to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports for best performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forward these ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88 UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled... find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to 192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come in handy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go to network settings and manually change your settings... so if you have your ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me... change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computers that connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses... so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it so there arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told you to minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the command box into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in th e dns settings... first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are done with that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computer to your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... network connections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wireless connection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... and click on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

You need to set static ip's for the xbox 360 and the lan that is on the pc, easy to bride the two connections on your computer, then set static on the lan that the 360 is plugged in to, example:
360's static settings:
ip: 192.168.1.14 sub: 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 ------------------------------- computers settings:
ip 192.168.1.15 sub 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

What do i need to connect to the internet. can i also use wireless connection


For wireless you need to buy a xbox 360 wireless adapter. I would recommend the N one for most likely a better connection even on G networks.

If you can't afford it I know people sell these adapters for dirt cheap on craigslist. like 30 dollars for the G one.

But for not wireless you can plug a Ethernet cord right into the back of the console. Every 360 comes packaged with a Ethernet cord.

Wireless router cannot connect to XBOX Live


I have a linksys 10/ 1000 card and a 2wire wirless router and had the same problem. You need to go to your control panel and double click the wireless network. Once you set it up you need to make sure that if you have a firewall that the xbox has permission to access the net. Also all wireless devices have a security measure some have WEP keys and others have passwords you need to find out what yours is.

Can't get on line


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.

How To: USB hookup for computer while having ethernet hookup to Xbox 360.


USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.

Connect to wireless


I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in? (sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site. http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:d7LlkY7Zo1sJ:www.vnunet.com/personal-computer-world/hardware/2147007/microsoft-xbox-360+xbox+360+wifi+is+built+in%3F&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=2 So that may be ya problem?

Link Your Console to Another Console


Console-to-Console Connection: Wireless Some Xbox games offer console-to-console, or system-link, play, in which two or more players (depending on the game) can wirelessly network their consoles for multiplayer use. Console-to-console wireless networks are also known as ad-hoc networks. In ad-hoc networks, a wireless adapter on one device connects directly to a wireless adapter on another device. An Internet connection isn't shared with this type of network, and the console-to-console connection is typically temporary. For console-to-console play, you need: Two Xbox 360 consoles. Two Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapters. An Xbox 360 game that supports system link play. To wirelessly connect your console to another console: Attach an Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to the back of each console as described in Use Your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter. On each console, go to the System area to enter your network settings. (They will be the same for each console.) If all settings are correct, exit the System area. The consoles should now be wirelessly connected to each other.
