I've been using an ethernet cable connected to my laptop to connect to Xbox Live for over a year. All of the sudden it stopped working yesterday. I haven't changed anything. I went through everything to make sure my laptop was still sharing the internet and it was.I've tried connecting using both my laptops, which both worked before yesterday. The laptops I've been using are an old HP Dv7 - 1240us and a new HP Elitebook 8730w. I've been getting the message, "Can't obtain IP Address from your router or modem." My xbox stops connecting before "Network." Verison is my ISP.
I went through all the troubleshooting on my xbox and on xbox.com. Nothing has worked. Someone please help me. Thank you for any attempts.
