IP Address keeps failing on my Xbox 360

Whenever I try to get online with my Xbox 360, it says that my IP Address failed. Im connecting directly to a modem, & I turned my modem off & back on before connecting the new device, but it still continues to fail. Should I call the company that I have my service with and verify that I have a valid IP address?

    I have a slightly different problem. I connected by Xbox straight into the PC that connects straight to the router through wirless. I did an I.P connection test but it failed (although the xbox recognised my ip from before)

I would Recommend that you should call the company to come out and see your modem. ( It's not your IP address) Go into your Xbox live setup now make every thing to 0 then try to connect it should work. If not call the company to come out and take a look. ( I would call geeksquad for this kind of thing). Now like I was saying it can't be your IP address. It's most likely it's failing is because it try's to get through the modem but it can't so I would read in your modems manual and see about setting up app. on it or about gaming.

You shouldnt have an amp, when you do this. Also, you arent supposed to plug the modem directly into the console. It is supposed to be plugged into a router, which is pluged into a computer. That was, you can configure it.

Xbox 360


go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address? Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?

Cannot connect ot xbox live my ip address test fails


if you dont have a router, you can either have the xbox or the pc conneted to the internet, not both. you have to have an eithernet cord or a usb 2.0 high speed usb chord that goes directly from the xbox to the modem. you cannot go from the modem to the computer then to the xbox.

Ip address failed


In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.
