so i'm trying to connect to xbox live for the first time via my cable modem. I connected the internet cable into the back of the xbox from my modem but it says that it cannot find an IP address. I know how to manually put one into the xbox to set up the connection, but i dont know how to figure out what my IP address is. Any help?
so i just figured out that i also need a subnet mask and gateway information...anybody know how to get it? and the gaming thread will take weeks to figure out how to do this, after i figure it out i'll delete the thread. please help.
nevermind that, now i need to find my DNS server. anyhelp?
Dude, that doesn't help. What you need to try to do is called "Power Rotating". Make sure that the ethernet from your xbox is snug into your modem, and unplug your modem for about 30 seconds. Then plug it back in. Should be fine.
