Re: XBOX IP Address Error

hi

 

have you tried using a static ip address on the xbox?

 

is the cable fine? have you hooked a laptop or a pc up to the ethernet to test the cable?

Re: XBOX IP Address Error

Basicly I went on my router where the DHCP section is 

 

the ips are ranging from:

 

192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.51

 

So i picked 192.168.1.20 for xbox

 

i dont know what DNS server ips to put it.

Re: XBOX IP Address Error

do dhcp ip address range is going form 1.2 to 1.51?

so then you would need to pick something out of that range

 

the dns servers are what ver you like so say virgin's are 194.168.4.100 and 194.168.8.100 and opendns is 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222
