    When i try to connect my xbox 360 to xbox live i cant get it to automatically find an IP. I have been entering in a IP manually (the same one my laptop uses) and it doesnt work when both try to access the internet.

    Im using a Belkin wireless G gaming adapter and and a linksys WRT54GS wireless-G broadband router.

    Try adding 1 to the IP of your working device as a hot-fix (e.g. 192.168.1.4 --> 192.168.1.5). However I cannot see why your router is not automatically assigning your Xbox a unique IP. Type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser and you should access the Linksys settings page and check that the option to assign IP's to new connections automatically is allowed.
