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

Hi, You need to go into Control Panel, Network and sharing center, there you have all your options, I know it`s different, but more secure, "select Connect to a network" and the rest should be easy.
The thing you have to remember is vista and windows 7 will not connect to an open Wifi, (like a Donkey you will have to drag it and point to it) because it thinks that that connection is not safe, it is all about security.

Hope this helps.

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)

Xbox 360 live using internet through my laptop


Normally you would connect your xbox directly to the router. Is there a reason you are trying to connect to your laptop instead? (distance, etc.)

If that is what you truly want to do then first thing make sure you are using a CROSSOVER cable to connect your laptop and xbox together. standard network cables only apply to connecting to routers, switches, and other network controlers. If you are connecting two devices directly you must use this type cable. It is ussally red.

The share tab is only for sharing dialup connections to LAN connections. You are sharinbg two LAN connections so all you need to do is bridge them and make sure there are in the same IP group. Check the status of your wireless card to see what address the router is assigning to it. Then assign the IP to the wired adapter with a differnt higher number.. Example: If your wireless card is 192.168.1.100 then make your wired adapter 192.168.1.151 This should make it work.

Again, it would be much easier to connect your XBOX to the router like it was intended ;)
