Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
(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
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 beable 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 may also try power cycling your router/modem. Just yank the power, wait about 20 seconds, and plug it all back in. If this doesn't help, run the Xbox LIVE connectivity test and see what it says, update with your test results if it's not too much. :)

Hi, if it wont connect to the internet, i reccomend, shuting it down, taking the disc out of the tray, unplugging the hard drive,memory card, then unplugging all the cables round the back, then using a vacuum to clear all the dust out of all the crevices, be careful not to open the case unless you dont mind voiding the warranty or you have the skils/tools/expertise to do so, also if its wireless your using, take out the network adapter, keep it unplugged from the power for a minute or so, then plug it back in.
hope that solved our problem :P

Check you internal connections. Make sure that you have set up the xbox to the network with the required network name and password if you have that established.
