I ran a new ethernet cord through the house so I can connect to the internet after the repeated "server connection timeout" issue grew old.
I am in USA and have Road Runner, using an Ambit modem/router combo. I've used all the solutions in the wizard located <a href="http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-live/connecting/cant-connect-to-xbox-live-wizard">here</a>.
I'm not an IT whiz so it's possible I didn't do something right. My IP on XBox when set to Automatic shows up as starting with 169 instead of 192.168.0.1 like it should. The subnet mask shows up as 255.255.0.0 instead of 255.255.255.0 like IP config suggests.
The tutorial says that if my IP shows up with 169 (like it does) or 0.0.0.0 (like my default gateway does) then it's a DHCP issue. DHCP was already enabled according to the steps I followed by going to Networking, clicking Local Area Connection, Properties, IPv4 etc.
Perhaps when I went into the router I didn't do it correctly? I've tried creating a manual IP and automatic detection, neither worked. It's registering that it's wired, but not obtaining the correct IP sequence, subnet or default gateway. I can't connect to the modem/router to even attempt to connect to LIVE.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
