What went wrong here, is that you have to reset your modem and or router. You can do this by unplugging it from the outlet. Then plug them back in and see if it works. If it still doesnt work, contact Xbox customer support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX. (1-800-469-9269)

Hope this helps ;)

The way that i found to connect was to use a router, and connect it through that. it sets everything up itself.

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

Xbox live ip address test fails


If you are using Windows XP or below, press START, click RUN and type "cmd". If you are using Windows Vista, press START, click the search bar and type "cmd". The command prompt should appear.
Type: ipconfig /all
Search the list for your network adaptor and make a note of the MAC address. 
Turn on your Xbox 360 and go to network settings. Select manual settings and enter the MAC address under the Alternative MAC address option. Retest the connection. If your computer is connected to the internet, your Xbox 360 will be too,

Cant get xbox live connected


You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Ip address failed


I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Ip adress


this is not a fault with the xbox 360 rather it is a problem you have with your internet connection or router. you'll have to check or possibly renew dhcp (the protocol that issues ip addresses on your router if you use one) or contact your isp about it.

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.
