    You need to share the connection from your net and allow access - i had a bit of trouble doing it but any q's pm me and i will talk you through it

    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

    It's ok my cousin is going to come down and set it up for me, he always used to do it

    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.
