I have done some troublrshooting and I found a way that may fix the problem (cause it fixed my DNS problem) I call my method "DNS Leaching"...don't ask why I have such crappy method names. I thought that since the Xbox was having trouble getting the DNS data so that I just hooked the Xbox's eaithernet directly into the modem, waited a few minutes then hooked the eaithernet back into my router. The Xbox then worked perfectly.

Step 1: Xbox <----> Modem wait a few minutes.......... then Step 2: Modem <--> Router <-->Xbox (or whatever your setup is)

There is an option that needs to be set on your router. I cannot recall the exact setting, but Im sure google can yeild the results. I would also give the XBOX a static address and put that address in the DMZ. Umm... My friend had the same issue, and I will check with him and report back.

DNS FAiLED thats only the problem .. i can connect to wifi but when i start typing the url then enter go ..the response is dns failed


It is a problem due to DNS server ip address.If you configured ip address in mobile manually to connect wifi check the DNS address.If you have connected to wifi automatically means there is a problem of DNS ip in the wifi router configuration.Google has public dns of 8.8.8.8 if possible configure in Mobile and try it

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, it just says acquiring network address all the time, it does connect to other wireless routers though?


To connect a laptop to a wireless network for accessing internet....you have two ways:-
1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) 2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties.
1.DHCP:- In DHCP method you dont have to enter any settings on the wireless adapter. The wireless network which you are connecting will automatically assign an IP Address to you. But to use DHCP it must be supported by your wireless network router settings.
2. Manual entry of settings in wireless adapter properties. This method is mostly used over wireless Connection in small networks connecting 2-200 computers. In this method you have to obtain the following information from your connection provider.
* IP address (Its format is "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx") * Default gateway address (very important) * Primary and secondary DNS (If not given then you can use "8.8.8.8" as primary DNS and "8.8.4.4" as Secondary DNS...thats free DNS service from google and its very fast) * Subnet Mask (not needed mostly...automatically generated)
To enter these settings you have to rightclick the Wireless Adapter>> and select properties>>Then double click the Internet Protocol version 4(TCP/IPv4) and enter these settings. In many cases when you are using proxy server then you have yo use proxy settings also in your browser..
Hope this will help 4 sure....Cheers..:)

This option is recommended for most users.

    You may have to or prefer to manually configure the IP settings, especially when a static IP address is used. This is necessary only if your ISP has issued a static IP address, or if you have configured the router to issue static IPs (and DHCP is not used).
