Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop

1 Answer

Connect internet via ethernet

I connect to the internet via (suddenlink) cable (ARRIS) modem, I have a Dell PC, an XBOX 360 Live, as well as an Apple G5 PowerMac. After conducting a reset/startup procedure (at least 12 times)I can still only get the Dell PC to connect to the internet. I have set the Mac and X-Box settings to Automatic because I am using a Dymanic IP. But I can't get a connection. I keep getting "You are not connected to the internet" notice. I have disconnected everything and started from scratch with a direct connect of the Mac (as well as the X-Box) to the ARRIS modem and even with the startup procedures cannot connect to the internet. What is my problem?

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

It says it cant connect to xbox live even though i have a ethernet cable hooked up to my lab top running to the back of my xbox 360.


Depending upon your Internet setup connecting your XBox cannot give you Internet access to XBox Live.
For a least complicated method, you need to connect the XBox to a DSL or cable modem that has Internet connection via your Internet Service Provider.

Setting up xbox live


ARRIS modem is a phone/hsi modem. What youll need to do is first turn power off on xbox then unplug the power supply from the back of the Arris modem and unscrew the coaxil/cable wire from the back of the modem for about a minute. Then plug in the power cord to the modem wait another half minute then screw in the coaxil/cable wire....wait for the lights to come back on make sure the online light is solid green not flashing and follow the ethernet cable (Looks like a thick telephone wire) and make sure you have that ethernet cable seated/snapped into the ethernet port on your xbox. Then turn the xbox on and do connection test. FINISHED..IF it's still not working make sure you have Internet service from your provider and if using a router bypass it at first see if you can get onto xbox live without the router. If you can with just connected directly to your arris modem without the router involved. If you do want to use wireless contact your router manufacture and or xbox support at 800-469-9269.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

How To: USB hookup for computer while having ethernet hookup to Xbox 360.


USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.

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

  8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.
