I have a wireless router in one room and my Xbox 360 is in another room with my wireless computer . I hooked up my 360 to my computer using an ethernet cable . I'm trying too the ICS to connect to the internet so i can play online but the Xbox 360 can't pick up an IP address when I test it . My computer gets online just fine but it won't share the connection with the X box 360 .
You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.

Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On
the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings ->
Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path
is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the
wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the
SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise,
select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the
mode used by wireless routers.)
Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your
router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox
does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to
use WEP encryption instead.
Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter
supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740)
only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.
On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a
connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the
Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully
been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.
On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

You can find the wireless password also called wep key or wpa pass phrase through the set-up page of the router. If you don't know how to access it, follow the instruction in How to Access the Router's Setup Page (just click it.)
with verizon, you need to set the modem to full bridged mode so that the connection from your modem will be opened. This certain firewall is called NAT. Your modem and your router has this feature. To disable NAT on your modem, you need to set it to full bridged mode. To disable the NAT on your router, you need to open ports on your router.
You need to open this port on the router for Xbox live to work
TCP: 80, 3074, 53
UDP: 88, 3074
forward it to the ip of your Xbox.
this should set the NAT on your xbox to open, not moderate.
1. If this is wireless I would try position the game box closer to the router or hard wire to the game box if possible. 2. You also may have a problem with bandwidth. The other computer is competing with your Xbox for bandwidth and the switch may not be able to supply it to both the device at the same time. 3. check if your router to see if you have QOS ( quality of service). Log into the router and check this feature to see if it is enabled.
Well, it's very possible if you are using a wireless router that your connection may not be strong enough. XBOX Live and most online gaming requires a steady. strong, high bandwith connection. A weak singnal, OR someone else using up the bandwith (i.e. someone downloading music on another computer connected to your router) can cause the problem.
If you're using a wireless connection, try moving the router and wireless game adapter closer to each other.
If you're using a hardwire connection from one of the routers outgong ports then make sure other's aren't on the internet (Or at least aren't using alot of bandwith) while XBOX Live is being used.
Please remember also that if you have a wireless network and you haven't implimented wireless secruity (i.e. WEP or WPA encryption) then your network is "Open" and anyone within range can connect and use up your bandwith,
