Hi,

I recently set up a home network so that the four computers in my house can share printers, files etc and since I've done it, we can no longer connect to Xbox Live!.

It was working fine last night, but when I set this thing up this morning, it no longer connects.

The automatic IP address is nothing like what I recognise on our network, usually it is 192.168.1.___, but the automatic IP assigned to the XBOX 360 is nothing like it.

The internet is working fine on the computer which the Xbox 360 is connected to, so no problems there. Any ideas?

Please Help!

p.s. sorry if i've posted this is the wrong place...

What IP is it assigning? is it a 164.x.x.x IP?
If so, it's not pulling from the DHCP server.

Did you check the cable to make sure it is still OK and seated properly.

This is what it's assigning automatically -

IP address: 169.254.243.156

Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0 <--- this seems wrong aswell?

Gateway: 0.0.0.0

DNS: 0.0.0

Yeah, all the leads and cables have been swapped with new ones etc, to no avail.
