Trying to get onto xbox live with a x-box just bought off a mate..
Heres the problem:
When checking network status, it says cant connect, so I clic test connection....
Then it goes to IP connection and says "failed" on the more info bit this is the info I get....
Your PPPoE settings were not validated by your ISP. Turn your console off and back on and try again.
This test verifies that your console has a valid IP address. If your console does not pass this test:
Confirm that there are no other devices on your network with the same Ip address.
If you are using a router or gateway, verify that it is configured to assign IP addresses to network devices (DHCP enabled)
I am using a router, and a ethernet cable.....
I am thinking this is something to do with the previous owners settings (although I am guessing)
