Linksys router i just bought a wireless linksys router so i can play xbox live. i followed all of the steps but i could not configure it. I then realized that my Arris modem is USB but it has an ethernet spot on the back. I have been trying many things to try to make my internet on my computer work and my xbox live at the same time, but either 1 or the other works, not both. Can you please help me.

Unless your computer has an ethernet card it is not going to work, so if your computer is usb then you will need to purchase an ethernet card for it.

How to connect to xbox live with linksys router


Just to confirm you are using a wireless connection to hook up to the router? do you have the router model number? Have you configured the correct wireless settings on the 360? Make sure that if you have a key that you have entered it correctly. http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox/xboxlive/getconnected/setupahomenetwork/stepbystep.aspx
also you can use the xbox support site for reference, use the left side panel to look at wireless settings and other help.
Thank you,
Lee

Change NAT to open


You need to open all the ports for the xbox live. The NAT of that router model cannot be configured to open. Its just a simple NAT for internet connection.

Linksys router and modem problems


Hello,

Most cable company's will not allow you to use the USB and the ethernet connection at the same time. You will need to only use ethernet to your PC and your XBOX. Once you have the ethernet cord connected from your modem to the WAN/Internet port on your router you will need to press the reset button on the back of the arris to authorise the router for access. After that is done you will plug you XBOX into 1 of the 4 numbered ports on the router. Then you will need an additional ethernet cord for your PC.

Hope this helps

I am using a linksys wireless g gaming router connected to my xbox 360 and I have a belkin n wireless router connected to my computer. I cannot connect to xbox live, any help


Does the n router have the B/G radios enabled? You have to have G communicate with G. Secondly, do you have the routers configured in such a way they can bridge? If you can't bridge them wirelessly or connect them physically they won't communicate. If this is off base there are also ports that need to be open for the XBOX to connect to XBOX live and this complicates testing, so test on a normal PC with web or ping first.
