How to connect xbox360 to internet with laptop


Hello bernelltaylo,

This is a very simple procedure, but pay close attention.

First, here are the requirements to attempt this procedure.
_____________________

- An Ethernet Cable,
- Wireless Connected Laptop
- Bridged Connection Eligibility
_______________________

1. Get an Ethernet cable, they are commonly blue, or yellow.

2. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console, and the other end of your Laptop.

3. Log onto your laptop, (assuming you're using Windows), and find the list of your wireless/wired connections.

4. You'll see something like, "Local Area Connection 2", and "Wireless Network Connection 3". Make sure you're already connected to the Wireless Network before continuing to the next step.

5. Highlight both the connections, and right click one of them. Click on, "Add a Bridge".

6. A process will start which will bridge the connections, enabling your laptop to work as a modem for your Xbox 360. This may take as long as anywhere between seconds, to minutes.

7. When it's done, do NOT remove the Ethernet cable, until your desire to disconnect from the internet on your Xbox 360.

Hope this helped, see ya' later. :)

Ok, my router is way in the other room and I want to connect my Xbox 360 to the router for XBOX LIVE. The thing is, is that I can't find a way to get something to extend the wire that's connecting to both;...


There are several solutions to your problem .
1. Run Ethernet Cable from an attic & drop either end down in the walls of the two rooms . Hardwiring is always going to give you the fastest , most stable connection .
2. Purchase a set of Power Over Ethernet Modules , you then plug your ethernet cable into your Xbox 360 on one end & the Power Over Ethernet Adapter on the other end , then plug the " POE " Adapter into a standard electrical socket . You will do the exact same thing on the other end with the Router this time . It should connect just as if you ran a single ethernet cable between the 2 devices .
3. You can use a laptop or desktop pc with a Wifi connection & Ethernet port to Wifi Tether / Share your Internet Connection . Just do a google search on Wifi Tether Xbox 360 or check out some of the videos at

Ip address failed


In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.

Hope this help!

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.

Why isnt my xbox connecting? i plugged the cble into the rouder and then put the other cable into the xbox and its not letting me connect.


To make a router connection to Xbox Live:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
  8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.
