    I have been running my xbox through a bridged connection from my laptop for the last year. Recently I updated the firmware on my router and now I am getting this error on the xbox. The xbox is the only platform I am having issues with. Both pc's, ps3, and wii work fine. To begin with I should mention that before even getting this far I had to put in the mac address of my laptop for the xbox to even connect to the network. Once I did this, however, the xbox did correctly identify my ip address, dns, addresses, gateway, etc. Even though it did identify these it will not connect to the internet. I have seen people mention that you should plug the xbox directly into the modem bypassing the router to see if it resolves the issue. My modem is my router so I can't do this. I have also noticed a multitude of threads on this but have not seen any resolved.

    First Name:
    can you connect direct to the router , rather than use the bridge connection via the laptop
    see if that works

    also try using the following DNS servers and manually type them into the xbox and
    not sure if the xbox takes two dns primary/secondary or just one dns setting
