Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The hotel has ethernet plug in the rooms. Laptop works fine, but xbox can't connect to internet. Had the lady at the front desk reset the modem. Also tried to manually configure settings on xbox with all the settings found on the laptop. Even tried changing the last numbers of the IP address. The new Xbox dashboard won't show which test failed, only that it failed to connect to the internet. Talked to the cable co. They said resetting the modem would work. Is there another way? Perhaps connecting the PC to the Xbox wirelessly or wired? Stealing internet from the laptop? Note...modem is not in the room. WTF?? Help...
I figured it out! I am also in a hotel room with only ethernet...and can connect to the network but not to the internet. When I got onto the internet for the first time on my laptop, there was a hotel internet webpage that came up immediately. You have to click CONNECT for 24hrs; 48; 1 week etc. unfortunately for us, Xbox doesn't have a internet browser like the PS3 does. So we can not click CONNECT when we are attempting to connect on the 360. The only reason why I know this is correct is because my friend brought his PS3 to my hotel room and that hotel connect window popped up and immediately we were playing Modern Warfare 2 with "full bars"...Xbox should really add a download for a browser! Like 360 way more. Sorry guys!

If the hotel has wireless internet as well as ethernet ports, you could try buying the Wireless Network Adapter for your 360.If not, well, I have no idea what the problem could be. Sorry if this doesn't help.
