Hi, I have just purchased a wireless networking adapter for my sons 360, the problem is getting things up and running.
Confirms that its got a wireless network, and that my router is recognised, but comes up with..IP adress failed, your console was unable to negotiate a lease with your DHPC server??? We are with AOL, and use a wireless connection through a netgear dg834g (small flat white)..
Anyone know what i need to do?? This is all very new to me!! :)
Thankyou..

Hi....I am not part of the "tech" group or "the "geeks-to-go" squad, but I do have an Xbox 360 and used to have the same issue....

1) My Xbox->System Settings->Network Settings->Configure Network->Basic Settings-> Here under "IP Settings" and "DNS Settings" should both be "Automatic"

2) On your Wireless Router, is there a password or some sort of block you might have that you need some sort of code for?

3) Also, check your firewall, it might not be allowing your Xbox 360 to use your internet without the proper authorization.


Hope that helps!! :)

I had some DHCP issues with my xbox, try setting a static ip, it works better, just make sure the IP is in the same range as your other PC's and your DNS server is usually your router's ip.
