According to Microsoft, two errors can produce an IP (Internet Protocol) address status failure. First, your Xbox 360 is unable to acquire an IP address from your ISP (Internet service provider) or DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol—a method used to automatically assign an IP address to devices on a network). Otherwise, your Dashboard settings may be incorrect.

With many network connection problems, you may need to attempt a number fixes before actually solving the problem. Your particular network setup can also affect the solutions you should attempt. For example, if you connect your Xbox 360 directly to a broadband modem and your ISP determines your IP address settings automatically, set your console’s Network Settings to Automatic. However, if you use a static IP address (the IP address your ISP assigns you does not change; you must usually pay an additional fee for this), you must enter the proper static IP address in your Xbox 360’s Network Settings. If your ISP requires PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) settings, you also need to enter those settings. Power-cycle your router by unplugging and plugging it in if you know your Network Settings are correct.

If you share your Internet connection among two or more devices, such as a PC and the Xbox 360, via a router, power-cycle both the modem and router before adjusting any settings; it’s possible that you simply need to refresh one or both of these devices. Next, attach the modem directly to your console and attempt to connect to Xbox Live. A successful connection indicates your problem lies with your router. Each router is different, so consult your router’s users guide to verify if its DHCP service is enabled. Again, if your ISP requires PPPoE settings, make sure these settings are also correct on your router.

In the instance that your broadband modem has an integrated gateway device (for example, the modem and router are combined into one device), check that the device is turned on and that its status LEDs (light-emitting diodes) indicate it is working properly. Power-cycle the device. If this doesn’t solve the problem, set your Xbox 360’s Network Settings to Automatic.

The final situation involves using Windows’ Internet Connection Sharing. Microsoft recommends checking that you can browse the Internet; if you can’t, you’ll need to reconfigure Internet Connection Sharing. In Windows XP, click Start and Run. Type ncpa.cpl and click OK. Click View and Tiles. If you see the connection listed as Firewalled, you should read your firewall’s documentation and configure it to grant access to the Xbox 360.

Next enter the following settings in your Xbox 360’s Dashboard:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1
DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1

    The content settings are located in the System section of the Xbox Dashboard under Family Settings. To make any changes to the Family Settings of a child’s profile, you must first sign in to the child’s profile. You will also have to know theWindows Live ID credentials (the e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to the Windows Live ID) for the parent’s Windows Live ID account. The parent’s Windows Live ID account determines the access to the Family Settings in the console.

    To configure the content settings, follow these steps:



    1.
    In the System section in the Xbox Dashboard, select Family Settings, and then select Live Control. You are prompted to enter the password for Windows Live ID account that you used when you signed up for Xbox LIVE.

    2.
    Use the on-screen keyboard to enter the appropriate password for the Windows Live ID account.

    3.
    Select Content Settings.

    4.
    Select one of the following options:




    User Created Content
    If you select the User Created Content option, you can restrict your child from viewing content that was created by other users.


    Purchase Content
    If you select the Purchase Content option, you can restrict your child from purchasing premium content.

    5.
    Select from the following settings based on the option that you selected in the previous step:




    User Created Content: allowed, allowed with friends, blocked


    Purchase Content: allowed, blockedNotes
    Family Settings can prevent users from not just playing certain content, but also seeing certain content in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and Download Content area of a game title. For example, visit the following Web site:

Your account is probably registered to someone who is listed underage for some of the content.

1. You can wait untill you are adult
2. You need to make a new account for examble with your parents details. and with theyr birthdate.

I dont know of any other way.

You will need to disable parental controls completely. The account may be set as a child account and it will require and "adult" account to remove all the restrictions under Family Settings

Wont let me download M or R rated


It only means that the account you created on xbox live is a CHILD ACCOUNT ( its below 18 years old ). you wont be able to download any M rated contents using a child account.

You wont be able to change the age because the system recognizes you as a child profile.

Here is a step you can try.
1. Create an adult account. make sure that the birthdate you enter is your dad's age. or ask permission. ( Create a silver membership for free )
2. Download M rated contents using the adult account and you can access the contents using the child account.
Note:
As long as you use the same xbox 360..

Hope this helps.

The only solution for this is to contact the customer support of xbox. First, you have to provide your account information so that they will be able to verify that it really is yours, then they will be forwarding the call to their supervisor who will be informing you about the next step.

Cant download M rated demos


It sounds like the Parental lock has been enabled. Unless you know the code to unlock it you will have to reset to default on the systems menu. I dont know how old any of you are so I wont get more specific on how to do it, but i gave you the idea. Sorry.

Downloadable content


How old are you? if you are under the age of 18 it may require you to get a new gamer tag. I know this happened in my case. Once i ot a new gamertag to download with i was fine just say you are 18. If it still doesnt work call 18004myxbox and they will take care of it.
