When you hooked up the XBOX 360 it most likely, by default, made another network name but used teh same wireless hook up. Meaning when it is unplugged you need to:

1. Right click on the icon in the bottom right corner of the screen that has your wireless connections (Usually a picture of one or two computers)

2. Click on CONNECT TO A NETWORK

3. Find your network and connect.

That should work.

How can i download xbox games for windows 8


The first thing you need to know is that Windows 8 and XBOX 360 console have a different set of games.

So a game that exists on XBOX 360 might not exist in Windows 8 and vice versa.

In order to download xbox games for Windows 8, all you have to do is to go to the windows store by typing store and pressing enter while at the windows 8 home screen (you should see the live tiles), or by clicking on the green tile that says store.

There are also some XBOX console applications you can download such as xbox 360 smartglass which converts your laptop/tablet to an XBOX controller.

Xbox live is not working


How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.

Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !

Xbox 360 setup


it way be that your modem and/or router does not recognize the ethernet cord. the contacts on either the cord or port might be fried. try plugging the xbox cord into the laptop port if the laptop is hooked up by cord or try using a wireless adapter for your xbox if the wireless seems to work fine with your laptop.

Salutations LHmom,

Because your using laptop computers and a mobile carrier for your internet services this will be a little harder then normal but not imposable.

First what you would need is a ethernet switch or hub. This should allow you use the laptop with the Verizon card as a "Gateway". You would then connect the Xbox 360 to the hub and it would share the internet from the laptop.

Windows XP, and Vista have nice networking wizards that can walk you through the settings. But be aware you may need to change the settings back when you are not using the Xbox 360.

Hope this helps.
