Go to your xbox 360's dashboard go to the far right, the system panel, and click netowkr settings. Then click edit network, then click DNS settings make sure it is set to automatic.

xbox configures the connection automatically as long as it is able to detect an internet connection(either wired or wireless). For wirless connections though, make sure xbox is using the correct security key or wep key for the wireless connection.

Dns failed when i tried to setup xbox live. i have a belkin router set up and my console is set up next to the xbox. what do i need to do?


Information on setting up port forwarding can be found at:

http://portforward.com/


If you want to go with a static setting this is what you need to do:

  • Login to the Router/Gateway by entering it's IP address in your web browser. (http://192.168.2.1)
  • On the left panel of the firmware page, under "Firewall," you should see a link "DMZ" for the Static IP configuration.
  • Your router should generate 25-50 Dynamic IP addresses for, choose a Static IP outside that range. (192.168.x.200)
  • Then go into your Xbox network configuration and set the IP address to the newly defined DMZ.
  • IP: 192.168.x.200 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (Primary DNS is the same as the gateway)
If you need more information about your router follow this link:

MTU setting


Browse to the router's setup page, should be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 and log into it. You just have to change the MTU. Put it to 1500.
Once logged in to the router, go to :

Setup
-
Basic Setup
-
Wireless Setup
-
Internet Connection Type
Connection Type = Static IP
Internet IP Address = 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.0.1
Static DNS 1 = 192.168.0.1
Static DNS 2 = 192.168.0.1
Static DNS 3 = 192.168.0.1
STP = Enable
-
Optional Settings (required by some ISPs)
Router Name = client-mode
Host Name = 2WIRE383
Domain Name = [empty]
MTU = Auto

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.

There can be a few different things causing this.

If you can, with your xbox turned off... Unplug your routers power cord for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once your router has started back up, and all cables are in place, turn your xbox on and see if it connects.

There are some routers that are not quite compatible with xbox live, but most newer routers are. There is a list on the xbox support site of compatible routers. Here is a link to that support site for you...

LIVE connection


Use the ethernet connection. Make sure that you reboot the router if you're using one and that there's a link light on the router on the port where the xbox is. If you have a computer, use it to make sure your connection's dns is properly configured. use the computer to connect to www.fixya.com to make sure.
