Re: connecting to the internet
Your router is locking it out. if you don't know much about routers try unplugging it and your modem for 20 seconds, that should do the trick. also reset your network settings on the xbox by going into the networking blade and clicking on reset to factory. good luck!

Check if your wireless router is set up to DHCP (this means that it gives out ip adresses automaticly) If its nbot set to that, or it cant be set to DHCP, Try setting the Wii to manual ip, choose something like 192.168.0.150 or 192.168.1.150
As these are often used ip lines.
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).
On the X-Cross Media Bar, (the menu that comes up when you turn on the PS3) under "settings", go to "Network Settings". then go to "Internet Connection Settings". select "yes". go to "custom", "Wireless", "Scan". If your network is not listed, move your PS3 closer to the Wireless Access point. Select your Network and enter your password (if it needs one). select "automatic" for everything. select "Test Connection". the "Obtain IP Adress" and "Internet Connection" should say "Succeeded". If not, contact your system or network administrator or a teacher that knows a lot about computers.
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).
