Question about Dynex 5 Port 10/100 Ethernet Switch (DX-ESW5)

1 Answer

Xbox live I've hooked my router up to both my laptop and my xbox 360, and only my laptop is able to go on the internet. The xbox says something about the MTU failing, and that there is a way to adjust my router for it to work. How can I alter the MTU setting so that I can use my xbox?

You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.RICHARDM69

I cant get internet to hook up to the x box 360. Xbox is identifying my router but not my internet server


Hi there,
This would be a router problem. Your 360 can connect to your router but the router isn't letting it access the internet. The following webpage will step you through the process of setting your router up to work with Xbox Live. It also has images to assist you if you aren't sure what to do:

My pc has room for one ethernet cable and its already taken to a router box. i have no idea what its for but now there seems to be nowhere to hook up my 360. i want to hook up for xbox live and netflix....


Simply put

You need to plug your xBox 360 into the Router not the PC.

The Router should have more than one ethernet slot. (That is what is generally meant by the term Router).

Therefore:

1. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into your xBox 360.
2. Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into an available slot on the Router.

If your Router is constantly connected to the Internet then this should solve the problem. If it is not, then connect to the Internet via your PC and then when the internet is on the xBox should find it.

Hope this helps. Regards,

How do I connect Xbox 360 wirless network up


There are two ways to set up wireless connection to your Xbox 360, and get Xbox LIVE. Now remember, for you to do anything with the wireless connection, you need to buy Xbox LIVE. The company has a 3 month free trail for Xbox LIVE that you can sign up for. Then, when you have that bought, your true experience can begin. If you are fortunate enough that you console location is near your internet router, then you can hook up your 360's internet cord to the back of your router. then you will have to go to your internet configuration and test your connection, and you will have live. The other way is by going to Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or any other game seller and buy something that is called the Xbox 360 wireless connection router. I'm not sure if that is the exact name, but it looks like a pretty small internet router. Then, you hook that up to the front or back of your 360, into one of the many USB ports, and you install it. You may need help and may have to call Xbox 360 customer service. But, those are the two ways to get live.
Please rate.

Thankyou, Good Luck, Noob815

Can't connect with network


if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

Hello taz1028,

In order for you to be able to log into Xbox Live, you will need to have DSL or Broad Band internet connect in your home. Once you have that, you will be able to connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Modem that the internet provider gives you. If you wish to able to connect both the Xbox and your notebook to the modem you will then need a router or a wireless router. So, if you do not have DSL or Broad Band Internet service in your home, you will not be able to log into Xbox Live.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong
