Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse


Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

64 Bit Vista Internet connectivity issue


you have to install the proper driver for Lan card you are using ...probably at installing the windows installed a driver for the card but is not the driver that this card is using ...so ..if you have the driver on the cd ..just install it ..and redo the settings to connect ...the tcp ip protocol for lan t1 cable...or the automatic ip for dsl modem ...anyway
even with the wrong drivers it is showing conected and working ..but the packets are not sent ...you can wathc this in the window that pop up when you click on tray system icon ..
another issue is if you changes the LAN card recently ... or you changed the pc ...and u used to have a nother IP based ( static ip ...) you have to call the provider and comunicate the new MAC address on your computer ..
if yo can not get in touch with your provider ..but you know that you have an Ip ;subnet mask ;default gateway ; and servers ..that you set every time ...this means that your mac address have to be changed either on the provider or look on the net and download a patch named MadMac..or MAC make-up ..this will help you to cl;one the mac adress on your lan card in such way that the provider will see it like the old one ...all you have to know is the old card mac adress in order to clone it ..
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network-Tools/Misc-Networking-Tools/Mac-Makeup.shtml
remember ..this with the mac address thing should be done just if you changed card or comnputer and you have a Mac-ip re;lation with your iSP

My xbox 360 says i need an IP adress


The XBOX is configured for connecting to a router or server that will assign it an IP address. Connect it to your router instead of your laptop.

Cant connect to http://192.168.0.50


what you need to do here is manually set your static IP adress, I had this problem as well and I know what to do.
you need to go to your network connections ( Controll panel>network connections) in xp (Controll panel>network and sharing center then left hand it sais: change adapter settings )
then rightclick your wireless connection and look at it's properties. then you need to click on Internet Protocol, for vista/windows 7 it's internet protocol 4 which you need to select. once selected click on properties just a little below.
there you'll see the setting is on: obtain Ip automaticly, but you'll have to choose ( use the following IP adress ) and enter

IP adress: 192.168.0.99
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.50
once entered press OK and now go to your browser and type the routers adress (192.168.0.50) in my case and now you should be in your modems setup menu.
once changed your setting you need to change your IP back to auto obtain IP adress. or your internet still won't work

My xbox 360 wont take ip anymore


go to your router. find what your ip pool is. choose an ip that is in that pool. set up your xbox's internet manually. you need the gateway, DNS, and everything (you can find this on your router online) this will give your xbox a static IP and might fix your problem

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.
