We have found that many Xbox 360 users are reporting about the IP address error which is not letting them connect to their wifi.

If you are also having this error then in this post we are going to cover this error and will share possible workarounds.

How To Fix Xbox 360 IP Address Error?

Fix 1: Format The HDD And Factory Reset Everything

As I mentioned above, many Xbox 360 users are experiencing this error, and in our research, we have found that the best workaround to get rid of the error is formatting the HDD and then factory resetting everything including your network settings.

So try the same and check if you still receive the error.

Fix 2: Are You Using a 5G WiFi network?

If in case you are using the 5G wifi network to connect to your console then it’s likely the culprit for the error as the 5G WiFi network is not supported by Xbox 360.

Fix 3: Check if Your Wifi Is Set To 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz band

If the error still continues then check if your Wifi is set to 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz band because if your router is set to 5 GHz then you are likely to get this error as Xbox 360 doesn’t support 5 GHz band.

In order to connect your Xbox 360 to wifi you need to change your Wifi to the 2.4 GHz band.

Fix 4: Enter IP Address And DNS Manually

Another thing that you can try is to manually enter the IP address and DNS.

Many users have mentioned that choosing the manual setting over the automatic fixes the error for them.

Fix 5: Try Using Hotspot

You can also try using a mobile hotspot to get the internet over the 2.4 GHz band.

And using the hotspot connection to connect to Xbox 360 works great for many users.

So we will recommend the same to you.

Fix 6: Try Using an Ethernet Cable

If using the Hotspot connection also doesn’t resolve the error then try connecting your console with the Ethernet Cable, and check if it helps.
