i searched on google how to do this and found this site to be the most helpfull, it worked fine with my old laptop and i could go on live whenever i wanted. then that laptop broke so i bought this one and couldnt remember how to set it up so i used this site again and it all worked fine, for 1 day, then the next day i tried to connect to live again and it wouldnt allow it, so i checked all the connections and theyre all the same, ive been trying to figure it out ever since but i just cant get it to connect, it still says my IP is the problem. its really been annoying me so i decided to sign up and ask you guys for help, if anyone can think of anything i may have bypassed or something please let me know, or let me know of everything that should be ticked or something, maybe a firewall problem or something i really dont know so any kind of help would be much appreciated. thanks in advance.

Changing the router’s IP address to worked for me, and now I’m up and running with Xbox Live.

My friend has a laptop with Vista. They connect to an unsecured Netgear router (which as of this moment IS secured..i accessed the router config and added WPA and a password to the router itself. Most likely the person has no idea that their router is broadcasting much less that other people USE their unsecured wireless connection or that someone added security, but thats besides the point).

My xbox 360 is connected to the laptop via cat5e cable and the laptop is using the wireless connection which is bridged to the ethernet port to share access. The xbox connects to Live quickly. When i try to play Halo3 thats where the problem happens.

I expected to get a certain degree of lag due to the unknown quality and congestion of an unsecured router. (which is why i added a WPA key) But the problem isn't lag. I was kicking *** in a game when all of a sudden the game dropped out on me. I thought it was because the owner might have noticed lag or a lot of data transfer and unplugged the router but that wasn't the case, as the laptop still had connectivity.

Could it be because it was run over the laptops bridged wireless adapter-to-ethernet port, the fact that i WASN'T using a crossover cable, or some other reason which causes the xbox live connection to drop out after 5 minutes of play?

This all started out as an experiment to get my xbox online for free but now its turned into a mission for me.

any experiance with this or suggestions/answers are appreciated.
