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.
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
1 disconnect all wires,including power from the modem and router.
2 Find reset button on router usually in the back,need a pen tip or paper clip to hold it in.
3 Hold in reset for 1 min.
4 Reconnect modem first,power up.
5 Reconnect router second, power up.
Try changing the ethernet wire from the modem to the router.
So your going to have your cable coax wire to the modem.Then a ethernet wire from the modem to the router,then a ethernet wire from the router to the computer.
Sounds like you may have one wire in the wrong place.
The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is
connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is
installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed
the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to
the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the
router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it
just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection
with the router two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought
the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If
any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox
live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys
wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were
horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known
for being unreliable and dying. I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems
with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not
possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new
router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not?
My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft
has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other
wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've
read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says
it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand i tink with these you can do some thing
This mainly depends on your internet modem, I use linksys when I play xbox live. Also I use wireless adapter, sometimes an ethernet cable as well to plug straight from my xbox to my modem. Make sure your modem is connected to the internet, and that if your xbox has a signal, or properly connected to it.
Hope this helps a little. Good Luck!
Once you have everything hooked up:
Ethernet cord going from modem into wireless router in port labelend internet or wan, and an ethernet cord going from the router to the xbox you should try these steps:
Unplug the power cord on the modem and plug it back in- once all the lights come back on
Unplug power cord on router and plug it back in-
