Shaotim is correct you do not have to have a router to use the Xbox online but if you have a computer you want to use online also then you will need a router... think of a router as a funnel it will allow all of your computers to get to the internet at the same time... most routers have a firewall in them which will protect your computers and your xbox should you also decide to share music, picture, videos, etc from your pc to the xbox

Yes you can plug it in directly, i dont think youll need a cross over cable, you can use a router so you can share the connection between several pieces of electronics, if you get a wireless router you wont need ny cables. A router routes data between ether net cable allowing each line access to what ever is on the network.

How to set up Xbox Live on 360



    1. Have a subscription of Xbox live, it can be from 8 dollars to 50 dollars, this is required to play live with anyone.
    2. If your Xbox is not located near a router or modem, you would have to buy a wireless network adapter but it can be quite costly($89)
    3. If your Xbox is close to the router or modem, all you have to do is plug an ethernet cable in the modem/router, and the other side on the back of your Xbox or Xbox 360.
    4. Turn on the system and on the dashboard, try to create a Xbox Live account.
    5. There are 2 types of LIVE accounts. One is called SILVER which lets you download demos, chat with friends, download arcade games, download movies and Tv Shows but no muiltiplayer, the other one is called GOLD, which lets you have all the features of SILVER but also lets you play with other people around the world, read step 1 for price.

I cant set up xbox live


Connect to the Internet The first step is to connect your Xbox 360 console to your Internet connection. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into a port on your router or gateway. You might need a long network cable, depending upon on the location of your router or modem.

    Note If you do not have a router, you can plug the network cable directly into your modem.
  2. Plug the other end of the network cable into the back of your console.
Verify your setup Your setup should look similar to one of the following:

Router connection

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

Cant connect to live


To connect to Xbox Live, you will need a wired Ethernet cord plugged into the back of your Xbox console. If you are using a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, you have to plug it in into the back of your Xbox located to the bottom left from flat on the ground. Also make sure you have a strong enough connection on your internet, and router/modem. Make sure your Xbox console is close enough to your router or modem as well. Also attempt to reset your connection and modem/router and see if this works. 1 or 2 bars are to low for Xbox Live gameplay. 3 or 4 bars are just quite enough. I hope this helped, just contact me if you have further questions or problems!

Wont let xbox live update i checked connection and it was fine


If your Xbox 360 console is connected to the Internet through a router or gateway (as opposed to through a direct modem connection), try connecting the console directly to the modem. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console and the other end into your modem.
  2. On the console, sign in to Xbox LIVE and start the game.
  3. Choose to download the game update.

If you can download game updates when the Xbox 360 console is connected directly to the modem, there might be a problem with your router or gateway configuration.

Cheers!!

Have one ethernet for computer want to use xbox live so i take out the ethernet from computer and put it in xbox unplug wait plug back in turn still will not connect red x for modem


You should get a cable/dsl router/switch or wireless cable/dsl router/switch and put it between your Modem and network nodes (IE your computer and xbox 360)

So it is modem to router wan port

Xbox 360 to router lan port
Computer to router lan port

You can purchase one cheaply at best buy

Xbox Live On Westell C90-610030-06 Isn't Working


if this is the original xbox you have to use a crossover cable especially if your router is the same as your modem (both the same box) (try google for the crossover cable instructions.) if this is the 360 it should just work, also how is your router plugged into your modem or are they the same thing. If that is the case go get a linksys router and set it up so that your modem-router combo plugs into the linksys router which plugs into your xbox (note that this is a fix for the original to.)

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.
