Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Im trying to get onto xbox live for the first time and im computer iliterate and it keeps sayin ip address failed?
hi, i have got the same problem my xbox 360 doesnt want to find my ip adress
i have a wired connection, because my xbox and laptop are in my bedroom and so i have a 10m cable from my phone line to my laptop and an ethernet cable connecting my laptop and xbox.
i have tiscali broadband (not cable so i guess it must be dsl?) and i dont yet use a router because my dad thinks there is no real need for us to get one and they are easy to hack into. my modem is a speedtouch 360 (thomson).
thanks very much James
In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.
Hope this help!
