You need to setup a network bridge between the tower pc and the xbox 360

Select Control Panel/Network Connections and while hovering over Network Connections, right click and choose Open. This will open a panel that should list your network connections.
This image shows all my existing network connections. Yours may not have the same adapters. The two adapters that matter are your wireless adapter and your Ethernet adapter. They will have different names than mine because I have renamed them from their default values. I have highlighted the two adapters in the graphic below.

Step 2 If you have both Ethernet and wireless adapters (and you must in order for this to work), then both of them will be listed in the Network Connections panel. Using the ctrl-click selection method or the drag-area method, select both adapters.

Step 3 Right-click one of the adapters and select the Bridge Connections option.

Step 4 You will see a notification that the bridge is being built. This may take a few moments.

Step 5 Once the bridge is complete, you will see the bridge icon and the network adapters as shown below:

Step 6 The bridge is only partially complete at this point. To complete the configuration, you need to relate the network adapters to the bridge. I’m not exactly sure why this is because you have to select the adapters to create the bridge in the first place. This is my first bridge, so it’s possible there is a better way of doing it. But this process has worked for me. If you know of a more concise way of configuring the bridge, let me know and I’ll update the process.
In any case, select the bridge, right-click and select Properties:

Step 7 In the Properties dialog, put check marks in the network adapters that you want to bridge. Make sure you select the wireless and Ethecan you help me please?? - 155078549_d38191f841.jpg rel='nofollow' href="http://static.flickr.com/53/155078549_d38191f841_o.jpg">155078549_d38191f841.jpg

To verify if your bridge works, connect the XBox 360 to your laptop’s Ethernet port and connect with XBox Live.

Xbox live IP address and gateway dont seem to work


Make sure you are using the xbox networking adapter. Some networking adapters may work on it but if you encountered any problems, xbox tech support won't be able to assist you with some troubleshooting since they don't support any product other than the xbox networking adapter.
  • To test the connection, go to the system area on your xbox live dashboard then go to network settings and select test xbox live connection.
  • If you pass on all test down to NAT then it means you are connected already and you can now enjoy playing online.
  • If you fail on the first part of the test which is Network Adapter or if it says not connected on Wireless Network then you need to perform some steps.
  • Get back to the network setting's area by pressing B on your controller and select restore to factory defaults. Doing this will restore the xbox live settings to default and you need run another test again which may allow you now to pass.
  • If you still fail on wireless network then it means that you need to set your console to wireless mode by going back to Network Settings and selecting the Edit Settings option.

How do you hook up xbox live to a router


If you are going wired, you need a an ethernet cable running from the back of your router to the back of your xbox.

If you want to go wireless, you need to buy a wireless router and a wireless networking adapter.

Plug all of it up and then scan for networks on your xbox dashboard, if you were successful in hooking it up, you should find your router and be able to connect....

I have a tip on my profile that you might find useful.

I want to PLAY online on XBOX original (not xbox 360).. What cabels do i need????


You just need a regular patch cable to plug into the back of your XBOX original and plug the other end in the back of your router [or cable modem]. If you want to use wireless, you need a special wireless adapter which they do not make anymore:

(this sez XBox 360 Ethernet cable -- but it's just a regular pc network cable which works on all network adapter connections)

I have just got a wireless xbox an i have pluged


Do you mean you got a wireless adapter?
This is taken off the support site from xbox. Also try to unplug your router for a min and plug it back in. It is called a power cycle. That is what I had to do.

To set up your wireless adapter:
  1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
  3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
  4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
  5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
  6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Need help connecting xbox live to the internet, have the wireless router but nothing is successful


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live Connection"

If it works your good to go!

Xbox 360 wireless


There should have been an instruction manual that came with your wireless adapter. But anyways, you may be connected to a password protected router and need to put in the password via the dashboard. I'm pretty sure you would goto network settings and then select the network you'd want to connect to.

Network adapter


Please dont take offense to my questions, I just want to make sure everything is set up right for you.

Xbox does not have built in wireless capability, so first do you have the wireless adapter for xbox360 plugged in properly?

If you do not have the wireless adapter for xbox, even though you have a wireless router, you will still need to plug the normal ethernet cables in.

The only time your xbox will tell you that the network adapter is disconnected is if it is not plugged into the xbox, whether that is the wireless network adapter, or the cord.

I hope I helped to fix your problem.
