How to Configure an Xbox Controller
Configure you Xbox controller.
The Xbox 360 utilizes two
types of controllers: wired and wireless. Like most operations on a
video game console, configuring a controller requires little effort. You
can either plug the controller into a port on the Xbox 360, or sync a
wireless controller using the console's built-in controls.
Connect the controller's cable
to the in-line release cord. This cord prevents you from accidentally
pulling the Xbox 360 along with your controller during game play.
Insert the in-line release cord's USB plug into the USB port on the front of the console.
Turn on the console to activate the controller automatically.
Insert batteries in your wireless controller, if necessary.
Hold down the "Guide" button on the controller.
Push the Xbox 360's "Connect" button, located on the front of the console.
Push the controller's "Connect" button to sync it with the Xbox 360.
You can either hook up your PS3 through hard wire using an ethernet cable plugged into your PS3 and your modem or wireless since the PS3 has a built in wi - fi adapter for the wireless network in range.
The DS can only connect to unsecured wireless or wireless with WEP security. If your router is using WPA, the DS can not connect to it. I heard the DSi can use WPA but I have not confirmed that yet.
Note, I do not recommend unsecuring your wireless or using WEP. If you must use the DS wirelessly, it may be better to get a nintendo dongle/USB stick or another wireless router that you can lock down to prevent unauthorized access to your primary network.
