Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

I can't play Xbox and surf the web!

When I am online playing Xbox, I can't use my desktop or laptop(wireless) to surf the internet. It's like the Xbox takes away the router's capabilities.

    Are you talking about the MTU setting? That's all I can find. I'm using a linksys WRT110 and a Motorola 2210 Modem.

Make sure there is not a setting with the router that limits amount of kbps being transmitted.

You were just lucky if you played xbox on hotspot because you usually always have to be connected to direct internet to play on xbox. Maybe you were connected and didn't know it. I've tried it on hotspot, it never works, it always says need internet connection.

I have cable modem can i hook up my belkin wireless router model #f5d8236-4 v3 to it ...my son wants to play his x-box 360 while im on the computer...please help


theres a number of solutions

you son my have a wireless reciever on his xbox(this is either built in or can be purchased) this will allow him to access the router around the house wirelessly allowing you to keep your cable plugged in to your desktop

protip:,make sure that the router channel number is set to 11 or the xbox wont read the wifi signal

you can get an extra long cable to reach between the router and the xbox (standard cat6 cable) id buy that online as its cheaper than in the stores.this will plug into one of the ports at the back allowing him to play while you surf the net

Cant play online games with my Gateway® M-6864 FX Black w/ Orange Accent. can still get on the internet but cant play online games.


Hi Bob,

If you are having issue playing online games but able to surf the internet, It means that the Firewall is not allowing you to play online games. Normally this is cause by a Firewall protection. As of now, DSL modems has Firewall features and you can manage them if you know so. But if you don't, contact your Internet provider to resolve this issue.

I have been confused about my internet connection lately. My ISP is Qwest DSL and I have friends that have the exact same connection as I do. Now when I'm trying to play an online game using a wired...


when you are playing with a friend and they are hosting it, it can be their connection that is causing the lag, the same goes if you host and they experience lag, the wireless and wired connection will be the same internet speed, but with wireless the data is transfered at 54MBPS over from the router to your xbox, but wired transfers at 100MBPS, the internet speed is always the same with both.

There are other factors which can cause lagging, one of which depends on the amount of people surfing using your ISP at the same time and sharing your line bandwith.

Hook up wireless network to play xbox 360 online.


Hey Lil Man23,

There are two things that you'll need in order to connect your Xbox 360 to the internet wirelessly: a wireless router and a wireless network adaptor. While both of these may often be obtained through an internet service provider (ISP), you can generally purchase both hardware devices from a local retail store.

In order to connect to the internet, your Xbox 360 will need to be set up in what is referred to as "infrastructure mode." This essentially means that your Xbox 360 will be set to connect to a single access point (the wireless router) in order to access the internet. If you're not quite sure how to do this, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions on how to do so in your owner's manual, or by using Microsoft's Xbox 360 Connectivity Wizard:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/connectionmethods/webconnectivitywizard.htm

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your ISP for further assistance. Many ISP's are able to provide home networking services for their subscribers, but remember that there may be a charge for any in-home services provided by your ISP or any third-party company.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
