    so I have a new xbox 360 s live but cannot connect it to the internet or to xbox live. I have tried all the steps given on the xbox live webpage and still cannot connect. I am even unable to connect using an ethernet cable so im not real sure what the problem is. When I try to connect it tells me that the password is wrong but its the same password that i am using for my wii console and my laptop and the blu ray dvd, they all are working fine. there is a psoitive wireless connection, the xbox even recognizes and detects the wireless connection but it just wont connect. Im am going crazy trying to figure it out. please help

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    Is your router set to only accept the "known" devices?
    I forget the exact name of the option but I had a similar problem with my router. It was locked to the already connected devices, wasn't allowing new connections. Even when I entered the password it wouldn't allow it. had to set the option in the router settings.

    Sorry that is so vague, but have a look at your router settings, see if there is anything similar.

    Are you using MAC Filtering on the router?

    Also when you are using Ethernet, at what point in the set up does it fail?
