Hi

i have 2 mac and one pc on a network the powermac is connected via a wire to a belkin router. the macbookpro and the windows pc as wireless.

i have xbox live connected via the windows pc and i keep getting an ip address error on xbox live.

IP addresses are always re-allocated so you just set it up to a certain range....

I had this prob with my network IP addresses changing on my iMac/PC so in Zone Alarm on my PC I just entered a range of 20. This way any changes won't interfere.

Hope this helps you. I don't really know if the above is relevant for an XBox...

Do you have Zone Alarm or similar on your PC?

could the router be blocking any more ip adresses? try logging on to it (192.168.1.1) and poking around any ip blocking option
