Well i got to network connected but internet failed


You may need to also plug in your computers DNS settings into your XBOX. 1. You should be able to click Start, type "view network connections", hit enter. 2. Right-click and hit 'Status', then 'Details'. 3. Notice the IPv4 DNS Server. 4. Go to your system / Network / Wired on the XBOX and try typing in your Computers DNS numbers (ex. 192.168.1.254) Unless they changed it on the new Blade system so that you HAVE to have and IP, subnet, and gateway, in which case, take note of those three numbers on your machine and plug those into the XBOX settings too (except if your computer shows 192.168.1.150, set your XBOX to something like 192.168.1.155, everything else the same).

Need a dns number it keeps failing when trying 2 get on line


I had some problems my self when trying to get online to xbox live. Usually when it can't find your DNS is when something is wrong for example:

  • Wires not connected propperly.
  • Information you entered not correct.

If the problem still persists, contact Microsoft.

Xbox 360 live DNS test failed


if you are connecting directly to the modem, then you are going to need to get the dns info from your ISP. If you have a router just put the router address or let it find it automatically. Also check that the router has the right dns settings from the ISP.

Help settin up xbox live.


If you had a computer connected to this modem, it would also tell you that the DNS failed and you wouldnt be able to access the internet. This happened to me before. The DNS server is a problem on your internet service provider's side. Make sure that the modem is running properly. Also, if you still cant solve the problem, you can call them up, they may be able to fix the problem over the phone, if not, it could very much be a faulty modem. (They arent always perfect when they are manufactured and tend to die quickly.)
