Hello,
I just go my xbox this week and i would like to hook it up to live. I went out and bought a Linksys model number BEFSR41 router. I have a DSL connection and i do not think it is PPPoE. I have my router and everything installed and running the internet just fine on my computer, i can get the xbox to pick up the router but can't get an IP address out of it. Any help would be great thank you in advance.

Is the XBOX wired or wireless? If wireless, try it on a wired connection.

Let's see this for the working computer connected to the router.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

What IP address does the XBOX get? If you can't get an IP address at all, I'd be looking at cables, the port on the router, or the xbox having a problem.

Solved my problem. I tried to hook my xbox up to just my modem today and the box said that it was un-hooked as to where on the router it said it was hooked so i went and bought a new ethernet cable hooked it up and it is working great.

I was going to suggest the cable, since that seemed the likely issue here, glad you found it.
