Try bridging your USB network connection with your ethernet network connection.  This will allow you to share your network connection and your Xbox should be able to hit the internet through your computer.  sandrew is correct, but by sharing your internet connection you can fool your xbox into thinking your computer is actually a router.

As you can see your computer, I'm assuming you have the necessary crossover cable, so you should be good to go after that.

You are only sharing files with your pc to xbox, you cannot connect to the net throught the pc, the xbox has to have connection to a modem/router, or a router itself which is connected to modem.

Xbox 360 DNS failure


unless a 360 has a modem built into it, you're gonna need one. also, you may need to set up an Xboxlive account to do ANYTHING. check your settings on the console as well to make sure things are working.

IPaddress failed


When this sort of thing happens it is usually a DNS error. The easiest thing to do would be to cycle your network. You can do this by unplugging your dsl/cable modem for a minute and plugging it in again.

XB360 also has a network test option that will tell you where in the network the connection is failing in the case that it is not a DNS problem.

ADSL Zoom x6 5590 DNS 360 Problem


Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.

the IP address will fail when it is set on manual, rather than automatic. Be sure, once you enter it, it is set to automatic

My xbox 360 wont take ip anymore


go to your router. find what your ip pool is. choose an ip that is in that pool. set up your xbox's internet manually. you need the gateway, DNS, and everything (you can find this on your router online) this will give your xbox a static IP and might fix your problem
