Cant connect to xbox live need an ip address how do i get one


When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.

Can't connect with network


if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3

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

Ip address failed


In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

Ip address for xbox live


ok, firstly i hate these problems.
first things first, switch your hub off (leave for 2 mins) switch back on, this may refresh the ip address, also switch your xbox off.. then try agian.
Get back to me and let me know what happens from here.

oh also are you connecting your xbox to the pc? or directly to your broadband hub? if you can connect it directly to your hub, this should solve any problems

You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.Was this solution helpful?

UNABLE TO FIND IP ADDRESS


I think the Ethernet cable needs to run directly to your router/modem, you can't bypass it through a laptop (as far as I know!)

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.
