Either the network connection between the 360 and router is not working correctly, or your router is not configured properly for DHCP.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that automatically assigns a network address (and some other settings) to your computer....or Xbox in this case. It works like this....when your Xbox connects to the network, it sends out a broadcast packet on the network that looks for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is present, it responds. Next the Xbox requests its network address and other settings from the DHCP server. Your WGR614 router has a DHCP server function built in, but it may not be enabled. Try reconfiguring the router using the Netgear "Smart Wizard" installation CD and be sure to enable the DHCP capability, if asked.

My PS3 can't find the IP address for my wireless router and I don't know how to enter it


possible cause is that ps3 uses an ip address leased from the wi fi router via its DHCP Server in Router. If PS3 was off for a while another computer on Wi FI network may have been assigned the IP address that the PS3 thinks it has.
Try page 29 of
http://au.playstation.com/media/2Pv7AFEC/CECH-2102B_2103B-3.20_UKANZ[EN]_vf1.pdf
on page 31 change the ip address setting to manual
set ip to 192.168.0.254 subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Now exit setup
Then go back into Setup
Change IP address setting to Auto
Why

This will renew the ip address from the DHCP server to the ps3 hopefully allocating you a fresh IP address lease .

Cant get xbox live because it keep asking for an ip address dont know how to fix this


It sounds like it can't get an DHCP lease from your router. Go into your router settings and permit it to connect to (make DHCP leases to) this additional device so it can get online.

Connection to winows media failed


1. check your netwok calble properly
2. check your router internet connection
3. follow these steps

Accessing network settings loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To access the Network Settings area, follow the steps for the version of the Xbox 360 Dashboard that you are using.

New Xbox Experience Dashboard:
  1. From the Xbox 360 Dashboard, select System Settings in the My Xbox area.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.
Legacy Xbox 360 Dashboard:
  1. From the Xbox 360 Dashboard, move to the System blade.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Edit Settings.
IP settings, IP address, subnet mask, and gateway loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Collapse this imageExpand this imagenetworksettings-basic.jpg

After you select either Configure Network or Edit Settings, you will be on the Basic Settings tab, which contains your IP and DNS settings. When you select the IP Settings block, you are prompted to select an Automatic or Manual configuration. If you select Automatic, the Xbox 360 console will try to automatically determine your IP settings from your network or from your modem or Internet service provider (ISP). 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). To manually configure the settings, select Manual, and then enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway by using the keyboard on the screen. When the information is complete, select Done.
DNS settings, primary and secondary DNS servers loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); After you select either Configure Network or Edit Settings, you will be on the Basic Settings tab, which contains your IP and DNS settings. When you select the DNS Settings block, you are prompted to select Automatic or Manual configuration. If you select Automatic, the Xbox 360 console will try to automatically determine your DNS settings from your network or from your modem or ISP. This option is recommended for most users.

You may have to or prefer to manually configure the DNS settings, especially in scenarios in which a static IP address is used or where DHCP is not available or not offered by the ISP. To manually configure the settings, select Manual, and then enter the primary and secondary DNS server names by using the keyboard on the screen. When the information is complete, select Done. Note You do not have to enter a secondary DNS server to connect to Xbox LIVE. A secondary DNS server is required only if the primary DNS server has technical problems.
Wireless settings loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To configure your Xbox 360 console to connect to your wireless network by using an Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, follow these steps:
  1. Access Network Settings .
  2. On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Settings.

    Note If the wireless settings area does not appear or is unavailable, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 909333 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909333/ ) While attempting to view the settings for a wireless network connection, all the wireless functions appear to be disabled in the Xbox Dashboard
  3. Follow the instructions to select your wireless network, select your wireless network name, and then enter your wireless security information.
  4. Select Done.
PPPoE settings loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If your Internet service provider uses PPPoE authentication, you have to enter the settings in the Xbox Dashboard if you have a direct connection through a modem. If you use a router or a gateway instead, leave the PPPoE settings blank because the router performs PPPoE authentication. Note If your ISP does not use PPPoE authentication, make sure that these settings are blank. To learn whether your ISP uses PPPoE authentication and to learn the correct PPPoE information, contact your ISP.To configure the PPPoE settings on your Xbox 360 console, follow the steps for the version of the Xbox Dashboard that you are using.

New Xbox Experience (NXE) Dashboard:
  1. Move to the System area of the Xbox Dashboard by using one of these methods:
    • Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller to open the Xbox Guide, scroll to the right to access Settings, and then select System Settings from the list of options.
    • Select the My Xbox channel, and then scroll to the right to select System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. Select Configure Network.
  4. On the Additional Settings tab, select PPPoE Settings.
  5. Use the keyboard on the screen to enter the PPPoE information that was provided by your ISP.
  6. Select Done.
  7. Select Back to return to the main Network Settings area.
  8. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection to restart the test with the new PPPoE settings that you have configured.
sure it will work thank you

When testing the connection for xbox live it can't find the IP address.


Hi,

Xbox 360 Connection Tests: IP Address
This test verifies that your Xbox 360™ console has a valid IP (Internet Protocol) address.
If your console does not pass this test:

Confirm that there are no other devices on your network with the same IP address.

If you are using a router or gateway, verify that it is configured to assign IP addresses to network devices (DHCP-enabled).

If you are connected to a router, make sure that your console'sEthernet cable is not connected to the router's LAN port rather thanits WAN port.

If you are connected directly to a modem and your ISP (Internetservice provider) requires PPPoE settings, verify that your PPPoE username and password are correct. If your ISP doesn't require PPPoEsettings, remove the PPPoE user name and password settings.

If you are connecting directly to a modem and have replaced a devicethat was connected to your modem with your Xbox 360 console or anotherdevice, turn the modem off and back on before connecting the newdevice.

If you are using a static IP address from your ISP, verify the address with a your provider.

If your console is connected to an ad-hoc network (in which devicesare connected directly to each other), it will probably not pass thistest. If your IP address is assigned automatically and your ad-hocnetwork does not include a DHCP server, this does not indicate aproblem. The test is properly reporting that a DHCP server could not becontacted. Xbox Customer Support does not support the use of ad-hocnetworking to connect to Xbox Live.

If you're using an ad-hocnetwork without a DHCP server and you can't connect to Xbox Live, checka different diagnostic test for the root of your problem.

This comes from http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/connectionmethods/troubleshootliveconnection-testipaddress.htm

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter


You need to let it automatically find dhcp and it will grab that ip address. If not then theres something wrong with your router because its now leasing an ip address out to the xbox at all. So make sure dhcp is enabled.

Xbox live


Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck

IP address Problem when connecting to xbox 360 live


i had the same problem buddy. The problem might be that you hacve another system on the wireless network that uses that same IP address. This can cause a conflict that will prevent the xbox from logging on. Try deactivating other systems on the network to see if thats the problem
