Make sure that you have a router first of all, that it is properly configured, and that the system is connected to it either via a ethernet cable or wireless connection. Make sure that the video game system is set up to automatically get its settings (DHCP) from your router. Unfortunately, all I can give is generic advice because you did not provide enough information on your particular situation (i.e: what game system, what type of internet connection, do you have a router, etc).

Can you tell me what an ip addresse is im trying to connect to xbox live and it keeps asking for ip addresse


Every device connected to the public internet is assigned a unique number known as an internet protocol (IP) address. IP addresses consist of four numbers separated by periods(also called a 'dotted-quad') and look something like 127.0.0.1 

since these numbers are usually assigned to internet service providers with region based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the region or country from which a computer is connecting to the internet. an IP adress can sometimes be used to show the users general location because the numbers may be tedious to deal with, an IP adress may also be assigned to a host name, which is sometimes easier to remember hostnames may be looked up to find IP adresses,and vice-versa. at one time ISPs issued one IP adress to each user. These are called static IP addresses. beacuse there is a limited number of IP adresses and with increased usage of the internet ISPs now issue IP adresses in a dynamic fashion out of a pool of IP addresses (using DHCP). these are referred to as dynamic IP addresses. This also limits the ability of the user to host websites mail servers, ftp servers, etc. in addition to users connecting to the internet with virtual hosting,a single machine can act like multiple machines (with multiple domain names and IP addresses).

Hmm, try setting it closer to your router. Ya know the box that has the wireless internet in it. It might not be getting a strong enough connection.

My xbox 360 says i need an IP adress


The XBOX is configured for connecting to a router or server that will assign it an IP address. Connect it to your router instead of your laptop.

Connect it to your router with an ethernet cable.
Make sure the router is setup correctly to your modem, if you can connect all your devices by ethernet cable to the internet then it's set.
If you are using a wireless connection and if it asks for the WEP or WPA key, make sure that you are entering the correct encryption key. You may want to call your router manufacturer to know the correct key for the wireless connection. FYI, it will say that the wireless network is connected but it will still fail the IP Address.

If you have a wired connection and the IP Address or DNS failed, I suggest you to call your Internet Service Provider to check for the Internet connection and obtain these (static IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, primary DNS server and secondary DNS server). If your Internet is okay, enter the IP settings manually on the console (System > Network Settings > Edit Settings > IP settings).

That should work.

Ps3 internet


Have you tried to find the settings automatically? Your router may be stopping the ps3 from access it to retrieve the information
