Share xbox with pc internet connection

I have an HP pavillion (model 7480) with wireless lan and want to share the internet connection. I also have a netgear wireless router available but not set up. My xbox and internet modem is in basement but computer is upstairs and modem is wired to up stairs but I would like to connect into the basement modem and still share with the upstairs pc (HP). I need help with setting up router (if necessary) and the changes to control panel that are necessary.

If the Router is a modem router , with phone connection, connect it to the phone socket where the modem is currently plugged in, connect a computer (a laptop?) to the router using an ethernet cable to configure it.
When everything is ready and router is on, call your Internet Service Provider phone number to get step-by-step instructions on how to configure the router for your ISP internet settings.

If the router is not a modem router, connect the modem to the router using an ethernet cable on one of the router's RJ45 connector, then connect the router to a computer.

On the computer put router IP on internet explorer address bar, to open the roputer control panel.
You will be asked for ID and password to access the router.
Once you enter into router configuration, the only settings you need to change are the wireless and security (set a wep key) settings.

Refer to router user manual to find out Router IP, and user and password to access router control panel.

Hi there
The only way you can share an internet connection from your laptop is with a "crossover cable" this is a pain as you have to have an ethernet crossover cable attached to the laptop and will have to be at least 30ft long for what you want it for.
I suggest you get your wireless router set up and purchase a Xbox 360 wireless adapter from a company like Amazon for example.
This will cut down the need for very long ethernet cables.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya

Best choice is to wire the xbox directly to the router, and then if required do port forwarding on the ports that are used by xbox live. Let me know ones you have wired the xbox to the router and we can continue.

    In your basement, you may need to add a cheap 5 port switch between the modem and the wireing that goes upstairs so you can have the xbox directly connected to the modem via the switch, this way all we need todo is to open the ports on the modem if required and it should work perfectly.


    The following ports must be available to your Xbox 360 console for Xbox LIVE to operate correctly:


    • TCP 80

    • UDP 88

    • UDP 3074

    • TCP 3074

    • UDP 53

    • TCP 53

Y cant i sign on xbox live


If you are Using an internet cable box, you can connect thorugh you PC, thats what I did. Setup your pc to accept internet through USB Afterwards go to your network settings if you have windows XP or later and go to look at the status of you usb internet connection, go to sharing and then check "allow other computers to share this internet connection. you can also have a wireless usb card for internet and will also have internet I did that as well. Then you connect you ethernet from PC to 360. If you have a router, you can run one from one of the connections in your router.

Cant connect to xbox live with vzaccess!! please help...


You have two options. Number 1, plug the 360 into a LAN port on your PC and set up the LAN connection to share the internet with the VZaccess connection. This will work as long as you are connected through vzacess manager.

Option number two, get an EV-DO router, wireless or wired, and use it to connect the xbox.


If using option 1, you may have to struggle at first with the IP settings. Make sure the LAN connection AND the 360 are set up to configure IP and DNS automatically. And make sure that you set the sharing options to include http and such. more help can be found by searching in Windows Help for ICS (internet connection sharing)

MTU fail


ok well I found a fix but it may not be simple. anyway, i got my xbox360 to work off of my girlfriends laptop by feeding internet to the laptop from the cable modem via usb and then from the laptop to the xbox360 via ethernet. just right click usb connection in network connections and click sharing tab, then activate sharing and tell it to share connection with lan connection... you can also share through wireless if your xbox is wireless. I tried running all this through a dsl wireless router and a basic hub and both of them gave ip address and mtu errors... good luck
