Try calling XBOX customer support. They will know exactly how to fix your problem. Their number is 1-800-4MY-XBOX. (1-800-469-9269). This is the best way to fix this problem because the technicians are certified and they know what to do.

Hope this helps,

You might not have been banned. Not being able to connect to the DNS or having it fail can be caused by a few things:
The DNS address serves couldn't be reached
The info on the DNS serverdns - 1.gif couldn't be snagged from your ISP or the DHCP server
The DNS values in the dashboard are wrong.

I don't want to come off like I am insulting your intelligence, but check your internet connection to make sure you have the ability to connect. I'm sure it is all in proper order. So the next thing you need to do is check to see if you IP is set and passes all the tests. If it isn't then you can click the more link on the test page to follow the directions on how to fix it.

You may also want to check out if you are using a XBOX live compatible ISP. Click on Learn More to see if you are using the right ISP or to adjust your settings. You can also check out the connectivity1.gif wizard to find out if there are some other issues revolving around this.

Still running into problems!?!?!? try running the modem directly into your XBOX. This has helped me in a few time of need.

Here are some helpful links on what you can do when your DNS fails:

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.)

Xbox live connection


When your DNS fails, its not your fault, you are doing everything fight. The DNS is a result from your ISP. (Internet service provider). It could be because your modem is faulty or their service is just down at the moment. If you have a motorola modem, make sure that the 4 top lights are solid green. This problem just happened to me and i called brighthouse. They came to my house the next day, replaced the modem, and it was all free. They also credited my account for the 2 days it didnt work.
