Yer dw i realise the sites on the left

Basically hook your 360 up to your pc

Then connect to xbox live

Then it tests all that stuff and list what doesnt connect and then we can go from there

If your using a router your gunna have to enable it t share the net - but it should be fine if youve had ur 360 hooked up b4

Fails on IP Address

Right - so from that we know that something is blocking it from obtaining it - Now my guess is this

Go to your main net in network connections

Right click it and go properties and then advanced

It should be ticked - "allow other users etc....."

if its not ticked do that

If it is ticked then go to your router connection in the network connections and look for the same thing

If you are wireless you may need to enter your WEP key again.

If you are using the official wireless thing plugged (has an ariel) into the back of your console what colour is the light on it when the console is on (red or green).

If it's red it may be that your 360's router settings have been changed (you say you got it back, from where?). I can't remember exactly how but you need to go into the 360's network settings and check to make sure you are picking up "your" wireless not someone elses then make sure you have your WEP key entered.

The easiest would probably be to restore factory defaults in network settings then re scan for your ssid and re-enter the WEP key (long string of letters and numbers) off the sticker on your router. This is only if you are wireless and just WEP of course.
