Ok,

Long story short:

I had my Laptop hooked to my xbox 360 through ethernet/cat 5 cable to get on live. I discover my internet was being stolen, I set up WAP key. I had to reconfigure my laptop (Basically, searched for router so I could introduce key) Worked. Have internet, but my 360 wont work, apparently it is geting wrong IPaddress:

IP: 192.169.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
No default gateway and it says manually config.?

I've tried releasing and renewing ip, nothing. Any ideas?

You mean 168?

Ok, at the laptop, check the ip settings by using:
ipconfig /all

Now configure your xbox manually by using the ip of the laptop + 1 (e.g. laptop-IP: 192.168.0.100, xbox-IP 192.168.0.101)
Use the same subnet mask, default gateway.and dns server ip as the laptop does.

Post back whether it works or not.

Thanks,

But I don't have default gateway. Are you saying to put the IP Address from my wireless connection? Or my LAN connection? (Where the 360 connects)

Let's start here:
What did you get at the laptop when typing ipconfig /all ?
Please post back.

You could have written it, but so what.

So your laptop does it's internet connection through the router by using the default gateway 10.0.0.1, which is your router.

I guess, the xbox is connected by wire to even this router.
So the xbox should be configured like this:
ip address: 10.0.0.3
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
default gateway: 10.0.0.1
dns server: 10.0.0.1

Ah btw, you should also be able to configure the xbox to get this settings automatically via DHCP.
It seems, that it is not !

Can't connect via static IP Address. Restart your modem or router and wait 30 seconds.

How is your xbox connected?
By wire?
If so, is it connected to the wireless router, by wire?

No,

My laptop has wireless internet, then, I connect my 360 to my laptop and access Xbox live through there. But after I placed a WAP Key on my Router, seems like it won't work anymore.

So you use ICS at the laptop to connect the xbox to the internet?

The laptop can surf the internet?

Yea, laptop works fine, in the pic, you see the two icons, one says wireless connection, the other one xbox live. Ok, so the only thing I needed to do was activate the "Allow other computers to access the internet via this computer" option under the wireless connection, that being done, it was all good.

But after I created a WAP Key, it screwed up. I'm thinking of removing that key temporarily to see if that's the cause.

No luck. I'm going to try to setup the network again, I think I may have missed something.
