I finally figured out why I cannot ping or connect to my xbox. It is because i have a wireless network also using that same IP address, what address should i try? or how do i avoid this conflict? thanks again.

p.s. I discovered this b/c when trying to re install my drivers i recieved the message, "Windows cannot set up this computer to share its Internet connection because the IP address it needs ( is being used by another comnputer or device on the network, or by software running on this compuer."

please help!@ thanks again.

most DSL and Cablemodem routers use the following IP adress ranges. Set your box to something else and you should be fine: -> routers IP address
192.168.0.[100:150] -> DHCP scope (used to automatically assign an IP address to you PC(s).
