DHCP not assigning an IP to my Xbox

N/a / XBOX 360

Specs: Windows Vista, N/A
Okay, I have a Win Vista that can create ad hoc networks. I also have a Cricket Aircard as an ISP. I created an ad hoc network and connected my Xbox 360 to it (I'm trying to get on Xbox LIVE). My Xbox comes up with ana IP error at the network section. I figured out my computer was assigning public IP addresses (169.*.*.*). I looked it up and I found that it was because of APIPA interacting because the DHCP server was unreachable. I tried enabling DHCP everywhere in ncpa.cpl - (control panel\ network connections), but it still didn't work. In cmd.exe I entered the command "ipconfig \all" and looked through it. the only thing that wasn't enabling DHCP was Cricket Broadband. I don't know if that would be the problem or something else.

Ok, first off, the "169.254.x.x" (or 169.something.x.x) network means "i wasn't assigned an IP, I'll make one myself so i feel better".

Secondly, i dont think that an xbox360 supports ad-hoc connections. I would recommend connectify instead (click here) as a better alternative, it allows the creation of an infrastructure network rather than an ad-hoc network. (which is what routers are)
