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.

Xbox live connection keeps dropping


It can either be your internet connection, your adapter cable, or your router. I have had lots of problems with my internets router and I have Linksys so if you have that same type it might just be the routers connection. Did you try hooking up your 360 straight to your internets modem? My fiance does this with his 360 because he has had problems with the router and the connection. Maybe try to disconnect your router it and let it sit for a couple of minutes and then reconnect it and let it reset before you reconnect it to your 360. Also you may want to call some type of support either for your internet or your router. They may be able to help in some way. It seems like everyone I know has gone through at least one 360 system. We had to just replace ours also after having it for under a year. The only system that I haven't heard complaints about is the 360 elite but the price is too much for us to get one. Anyway good luck and hope I helped a little bit.

How do i put songs on my xbox


Follow these steps :
1.
Burn CDs. The easiest way to put music on your Xbox 360 is to rip CDs from your own collection. Simply insert your favorite CD in you Xbox 360 and then pull up the secondary menu with the Xbox logo button. Then select "Rip CD" from the menu to transfer the tracks from the CD to your Xbox hard drive.
2.
Sync your computer with your Xbox 360. If you have Windows XP Media Edition or Windows Vista (any edition) and a wireless connection your computer will be able to detect your Xbox 360 and can share media with it. Simply find the "Windows Media Extension" tool on your PC and follow the prompts to stream video to your Xbox 360.

Were do you get wep or wpa trying to hook up xbox 360 to my wireless router


You need to configure the wireless networking component of the router:
* pick a network-name ('SSID'),
* pick an encryption-level (preferably 'WPA'),
* pick a network-password.

Then, configure your XBOX to use that SSID/password, to connect to your router.

Trying to get Xbox live connected...


Follow these steps if you are trying to use a laptop :
1.
Make sure that your XBOX 360 is fully functional and your laptop is connected to the internet by means of a wireless card.
2.
Locate the Ethernet cord and connect it to both the computer and XBOX 360. Don't turn on the XBOX 360 yet.
3.
On your Vista, click "Start" then "Network". After select the tab "Network and Sharing Center." On the left tab, click on "Manage network connections." You will see a Local Area Connection and a Wireless Internet Connection.

Use your mouse to select both icons and right click. Click on Bridge Connections. Turn on your XBOX 360, Sign In, and you will find yourself connected to XBOX LIVE.
5.
Once you are done, and you need to use your computer for other uses. Simply right click on the Bridge Connection and select disable.

what you have to do is go on to one of the menus on the Xbox and find your connection on there. First you have to link the wireless network adapter to the back of your 360 (around £45) and then its done!

I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
Tips:
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need:
  • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)
