how are you trying to get them to "talk to each other" and what operating systems are they using?

If you go Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > double click 'Local Area Network' and click 'Support', it will tell you your current network settings (IP, Subnet mask, DNS, Gateway and DHCP server.

U shouldnt really need to IP address to hook it up to a home hub?, as if youve got DHCP running, your IP address is likely to change whenever the PC is turned off and on again. Have you got MAC filtering or typed in your pass key correctly, or WEP key if your using WEP security?

oh, so you knew instinctively that the OP wanted their computer's IP Address? Well done - pass me the crystal ball next time.

As dcx_badass correctly indicated, it could have been a number of addresses, including the external IP Address which your ISP gives you.

Next time, take your own advice and STFU if you know nothing about a subject!

A typical reason why the IP address cannot be given to a computer on the wireless network is when you've entered the WEP/WPA key incorrectly.

Re-check the WEP/WPA key, re-enter it and go from there. Leave the network settings to automatic for now on your laptop (as your 360's obviously getting an address automatically so something's working!).

Exactly what I was going to say, it's confusing as the laptop looks like it's connected as it will show as being associated and give a signal strength but will claim it is unable to get an IP address.

Have you pressed the pairing button on the homehub & tried to connect the lappy?
#16
If i remember right the ip address of the homehub should be 192.168.1.254

so set your pc
ip 192.168.1.1
subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.254

dns 192.168.1.1
(or if you know both isps dns address can put them in)

Pretty sure that won't work as 192.168.1.1 is reserved. I would say to try..

IP : 192.168.1.200 (Homehub allows static from 164-253 even though its also in the dhcp pool)
DNS : 192.168.1.254

:thumbsup:

By the way, if using Vista, these numbers need enering into TCPv4 not v6.

I don't think manual IP addressing is the way to go as I believe the problem is the wireless but these settings definitely wouldn't work - you've set the DNS server the same as the client IP which means the machine is going to try and resolve addresses itself.

Also as Shengis mentions it's never a good idea to set the address as 192.168.1.1 due to this address being commonly used as a router IP address. I tend to go for something in the 100s as that should keep it far away from any DHCP range.

As I stated earlier, there's no reason to be manually setting IP Addresses. The OP has a 360 wireless adaptor which no doubt is set to automatic and works, therefore DHCP addressing is doing its job. I'd still go with the fact the WEP key has been entered wrongly.
#21
thank you everyone for your replies i just got back now so il try entering the wep key again i bet im doin some tiny little basic mistake somewhere along the line that il kick myself when i find out
#22
Funny enough im having the problem, the internet is connected via main pc, im on laptop wireless, and so is the 360, yet the connection on the laptop drops out sooo much, but shows its connected.
#23
Try restoring the home hub to factory settings, on the older hub hold down the wireless assoc buttin for 10 seconds, on the newer smaller (but not new black hub) put a paper clip into the reset button slot. Worth a try. Have you tried connecting your laptop via ethernet rather than wireless?

I had this problem with a USB wifi dongle, everytime I connected a USB device or inserted a memory card I lost connectivity on my PC but the wireless was still connected.
#25
this network key or wep mine is a mixture of 10 letters and numbers ? cos i put that in same as when i did my 360 adapter
#26
It's on the back of the Hub unless you've changed it.
