Hi, In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on the Router.
Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074
It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the following troubleshooting steps:
A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.
1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0 and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1 2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS Address as: 220.127.116.11
# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP Address on Your X-Box.
C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:
1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced. 2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen. 3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’. 4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1). 5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending port as 88. 6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50 7. Hit ‘Apply’. 8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'. 9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50. Click On 'Apply'. 10. Log Out of the Router Page.
Please repeat Steps 3 – 7 to configure the ports “UDP/TCP 3074”.
The DNS is your routers ip address. the secondary DNS is 0.0.0.0 or thats what mine was
you can go to your routers website and enter it manually. Type 192.168.1.1 this might be it or try 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.100
when it shows your routers info write it down and then put it in your xbox's network by entering it manually. btw the secondary DNS is just 0.0.0.0 if it doesn't give you two. the gateway is just your routers ip address.
what else you can do is do port forwarding. But the xbox is not a static ip address so it'll change. what you can do is when it says to put your ip address in your xbox put all the numbers the same as the routers ip address BUT DON'T USE THE SAME LAST NUMBER! so like if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 you can use 192.168.1.23 i use 192.168.2.15 but you may not have the 2 in yours.
It sounds like your dns or host file is damaged. Download and run this program and it should get you going. Winsockxpfix This will rest your dns, host file, renew your ip address. After this repair the best thing to do would be scan your system for spyware since your problem is one of the things spyware can do. IThis should work for you, please rate my solution if it does.

can u please tell me which router it is? in most of the router there is a feature call DMZ. u need to enable the DMZ in the router & then u need to provide the static ip to Xbox 360 like 192.168.1.5 etc in the default getway u need to type the router IP address & on DNS u need to try three different settings 1st on primary DNS type the router ip address like 192.168.1.1, if it didn't work try with univeral DNS try on primary DNS as 18.104.22.168 & on secondary 22.214.171.124, if this didn't work either call ur ISP and ask for the DNS server address of ur ISP and try with that.
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).
Contact the people you get your internet from. tell them you need to register your xbox. I have the DNS issues when i visit my girlfriend at college since they dont like to keep the Download speed high for the students. always fails
