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...

Connect ps3 to laptop via web and walk


Connecting PS3 to a network I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me, was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

Finally the DNS problems I had with connecting my PS3 to my network has been resolved. I have LinkSys wireless router which is working perfectly for other devices (like laptop, Xbox360, TiVO). My wireless network is configured to NOT broadcast the SID and with a WEP key. After entering this manually in the network setup on my PS3, I was able to obtain an ip address from my router, I was able to open the configureation page on my router, but connecting to the internet would fail with some kind of DNS error. The way this was resolved for me (and I know someone else mentioned it in an other post here), was to enter the DNS server addresses manually in the PS3 network settings AND use tetertiary DNS server from my ISP as either the primary or the secondary DNS server. Voila... I am upgrading my PS3 software as I write this.... ..btw, this also fixed the similar problem I had with my PSP.. Thanks!

I'M HOOKING MY XBOX 360 TO A WIRELESS ROUTER FROM THE COMPUTER AND THE GME SAYS MY DNS FAILED!


Yeah, DNS is the domain name service that sometimes sucks depending on the ISP and day of the week; there's an OpenDNS.org you can try on the XBox to get things going if the ones from your ISP can't satisfy; but it might also be that you need to explicitly allow DNS routing for the XBox.

Also, your problem description is lousy because I can't tell what the data path to the XBox is; off the router, to your PC, and again on a cable from your PC to the XBox, or what?  Take off all-caps and explain what router you have...maybe make a new question under that router's model name, since that's the issue...and how you think the XBox ought to have internet connectivity.

Ps3


Sounds like you have a network problem there. I'm guessing that you are using some kind of router to connect to the internet... within the router, is UPnP enabled? This could fix your problem. If it is, then maybe you need to port forward your PS3 to get the most out of online experience. Goto www.portforward.com in order to get detailed instructions on how to port forward your router. One thing that I can tell you is to pay attention to your primary DNS that your ISP provides you and make that your secondary DNS while putting your router as the primary DNS. Making a IP is a little different with each router, that's why I pointed you to www.portforward.com for more detailed instructions. (although the DNS was never really covered in it, that's why I said it here...) I had to do this with my xbox360 in order to get my full connection as the auto connection was making it really slow...
