You will need a DSL router. A sample would be the Linksys BEFSR41 that is a good option or if you want to try wireless the WRT54G will do.

Can i connect my xbox to my laptop /w pc usb


Xbox Network Connection using Hub

This is the most common network configuration and is also the easiest to setup.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your cable/DSL modem into the uplink port of your hub. (Make sure that your uplink is switched to "on").
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the hub, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your hub directly to your xbox.
**NOTE** A switch may be used in place of a hub with the same basic setup.**

That's it! No other network changes should be needed for this configuration. Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

Xbox Network Connection using Router

This is another common network configuration.
Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your modem into the WAN port of your router.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the router, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your router directly to your xbox.

**NOTE** In steps #2 and #3, you should not use a port that is directly beside the "uplink" port on your router, if your uplink port is being used to connect to another routing device.** If your router has a built in firewall, you will need to forward ports 8602 both incoming and outgoing to the internal ip address of your pc. Consult your device manaul for port forwarding.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC

Xbox Network Connection using Crossover Cable

This is the last network configuration. For this setup you need at least one NIC card.
Step #1: Plug your USB cable that comes from your modem into your PC's USB port. This should already be done, if you have a usb modem for your current internet connection.
Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from an installed NIC card on your PC, directly to the Xbox.

**NOTE** A crossover cable is only needed if you are connecting the Xbox directly to the second NIC card. If you have a device such as a switch, hub or router in between you should use a standard RJ-45 cable. This type of network setup also requires "Winroute©", a program downloadable from the world wide web. Consult the manual for specific instructions on how to set this up. Also if you have a USB ethernet adapter, you may use any of the setups described herein. USB ethernet adapter basically converts a USB cable into an RJ-45 cable.

That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

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
look at this link

Do you have a router? Most cable/DSL modems have built in routers (more than one ethernet port). The ethernet cable looks like a large phone cable (it's called RJ-45). If so, you will need to powercycle your modem.

You can powercycle your cable modem by:

Unplug the power from your modem for 1 minute (no lights on the device). Plug it back in, and reboot both devices and they will both have IP address to get out to the internet.

Let me know how it goes or if you have anymore questions.

Trying to hook up xbox360 to my internet to play online


if your using a modem its possible that it doesnt have a Ethernet port....Check the back of your modem and you should see a port that says ethernet near it. Plug your ethernet cable to the port in the back of the modem where it says ethernet. With the other end you plug it into the back of your Xbox 360 (its located in back to the far left....it looks like a phone line jack). You should then have xbox live

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox


Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

Cannot connect ot xbox live my ip address test fails


if you dont have a router, you can either have the xbox or the pc conneted to the internet, not both. you have to have an eithernet cord or a usb 2.0 high speed usb chord that goes directly from the xbox to the modem. you cannot go from the modem to the computer then to the xbox.

Trying to play x box live by running an ethernet cable from my dsl modem to my x box, but it doesn't work why?


Easiest way to fix that problem is to run your eithernet cable through a router/gateway/switch... it will go modem>gateway>xbox after cable has been ran set everything to auto and run a test. may need to do a few configuration changes to gateway but othere then that you will be online and good to go.

Ip address failed


If you are behind a router.. try hooking it up directly to your cable modem or DSL modem. If that fixes the problem then you need to open ports on the router to allow the connect to get routed to your xbox.

well if you have wireless in your house hold you can or have to get the xbox 360 wireless which cost 100.00 at wal-mart. if you have a router that you can hook up a lan ethernet jack from the router to the back of the 360 that is your better bet. you wont have to worry about getting disconnected or anything like that.

i would sueest buying a 100 foot eithernet cable. this dont run cheap. at staples you looking at 40.00 or so, you can get one on ebay for abour 15 and that cover shipping.

with the 100foot you dont have to worry about were you have to put your 360.
