getting random ip address from router on Xbox

Recommended Posts

my game [cod] just started playing like $h1% ,  I checked to see what port was open on my xbox and the ip number starts with  169 .  my router ip numbers start at 192. I've got the xbox hard wired.  if I run the xbox in wireless mode it kicks to the 192 numbers. if I change the ip 

address on the xbox the router just changes it back?

That's interesting, an IP usually starts with that number when it cannot ascertain an IP properly. I'm surprised it actually let you play if that was the case. Did it start before you were playing or as you were playing? If you switch back to ethernet does it show the correct IP?
