Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Do you know how pass the test to connect to xbox live?
The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.

Check the firewall settings on your router or modem

Well, there could be many problems of why it says Xbox Live failed, such as:
1.) Connection (maybe the connection from your Xbox 360 console to your modem/router is weak and maybe replaceable?). 2.) Internet (Maybe your internet connection is down/out for the time being).
3.) ISP (Some Internet Service Providers can only connect to Xbox Live and others can not connect to Xbox Live).
But it could be possible for Xbox Live to be down without any advanced notice, but is very rare to see happen.

Hey killerblue1, and Guest
It's somewhat a vague question, but I'll try my best to give you some options. I'm going to assume that your friend doesn't have an xbox 360, and you brought yours over to play, so I'm gonna go by that scenerio.
Try this, once you plug in your xbox360 to the network, which I'm assuming you have it set to be Modem --> Router --> Xbox.
Unplug the power from both the router and the modem, leave it unplugged for about 30 seconds, and then plug them back in, starting with the modem.
turn on the xbox, and see if it works for you.
If it doesn't, try this method:
Update the firmware on that router. I had the same issue with my xbox360. It's quite easy to do. Go to the manufacturers website of the router, and just do a search for, 'firmware'. Then, once you download the file, open up the console to your router.
It usually something typed in the browser like, 192.168.0.1, etc. Login, and update the firmware.
If that doesn't work. Get ahold of sony, maybe even checking their site. They may need some specific ports opened up on the router to allow specific packets to go through the network.
Hope this helps.
PS: If all of this doesn't work, please attempt to test the connection, and post back what step it fails on. It can be easily narrowed down to what is causing the issue if you do.
