    So I just moved to a new house, and I have the internet working... wireless network is set up but for some reason my xbox 360 will not connect to xbox live. When I test the connection it says that the IP Adress fails, yet I'm not sure why because I have dhcp enabled.

    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

    Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : HRDU-D1R6J8C1
    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
    Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid
    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
    WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    roller
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-15-C5-C8-59-48

    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-19-7D-15-A7-E9
    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.102
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254

    could it be becuase the dhcp has the same ip as the default gateway? and if so, how do I change this? Any help is greatly appriciated.

    nope. The Gateway and DHCP server can be the same device, though I am curious as to why the DNS server entry is 192.168.1.254, when the rest of the network is on the 192.168.2.x subnet.

    Was this configuration on the xbox?

    Also does the XBOX have a ping utility?
