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.

What jack does the Slingbox Ethernet cable hook into on a ATT 2wire modem? I have a choice of DSL or one like the phones are hooked into. It's not working now so I'm backing up each step, no matter...


Before you change anything - is this a new device you are hooking up or had this thing worked in the past? First thing to do is reboot everything starting with the modem and ending with the computer at the end of the line. Wait at least 30 seconds between each device. Review all the connections - everything plugged in where it should be? (this is of course your question - see more below).

Eithernet connections (plugs) are RJ-45. The RJ-45 looks like a RJ-11 (telephone jack) only bigger. Typically, the RJ-45 will not fit into the RJ-11 AND SHOULD NOT. Why? Your Cat 5 eithernet runs on very low voltage and signal (packet switching). If you succedssfully get the RJ-45 CAT 5 cable into the RJ-11 phone jack, when the phone rings, you will be sending 60 volts into your network. Can you spell "Do I smell smoke?" A RJ-11 will have up to 6 wires (one pair or two pair or three pair) in the jack and up to 6 'buds' on the RJ-11 plug. A RJ-45 will have 8 wires (in the jack) and 8 'buds' on the plug of your cat 5.

Your device may say DSL on the Cat 5 connection - count the wires inside or the jack.

There are other Cat 5 connection types, punch down and terminal screw types, I dont think you are talking about either.

On your AT&T modem, you should find a RJ-11 which will attach to a near by telephone jack and a RJ-45 for your Cat 5 cable. Your modem may also serve as a router and as such would have additional RJ-45 ports. I suspect you are using a separate router for your home network. As such, one of the ports on the router should be marked Internet or Upload or maybe it is a special color or is set aside from the other ports. That special port will be connected to your modem and your other computers will use the other, lesser ports.

Of course, you could call your service provider for clarification also.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com - I am sorry you are having this trouble and I hope I have helped you in some way. I hope you are able to get your system back up in short order.

How to connect Xbox 360 to modem


Hi Nacee..
Hope your r good there!

Anyways...First thing you should do is turn off your computer, cable or DSL modem and XBOX 360. Then you should hook an Ethernet cable from the cable modem to the Ethernet port on the back of your XBOX 360. Then power up your cable mode and then power up your XBOX 360.

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.

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.

I have a Linksys router and it really dosn't tell me a lot about hooking it up! Can anyone help? MDL# EZXs55W It is a five port. The tech connected the cable and the eithernet cable to the modem. I tried...


Great !

But if you have trouble installing the cd, follow these instructions:
Router setup
You do not have to use the cd.

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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.
