Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

X Box 360 can't connect in hotel room!

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.

How to connect xbox360 to internet with laptop


Hello bernelltaylo,

This is a very simple procedure, but pay close attention.

First, here are the requirements to attempt this procedure.
_____________________

- An Ethernet Cable,
- Wireless Connected Laptop
- Bridged Connection Eligibility
_______________________

1. Get an Ethernet cable, they are commonly blue, or yellow.

2. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the back of your Xbox 360 console, and the other end of your Laptop.

3. Log onto your laptop, (assuming you're using Windows), and find the list of your wireless/wired connections.

4. You'll see something like, "Local Area Connection 2", and "Wireless Network Connection 3". Make sure you're already connected to the Wireless Network before continuing to the next step.

5. Highlight both the connections, and right click one of them. Click on, "Add a Bridge".

6. A process will start which will bridge the connections, enabling your laptop to work as a modem for your Xbox 360. This may take as long as anywhere between seconds, to minutes.

7. When it's done, do NOT remove the Ethernet cable, until your desire to disconnect from the internet on your Xbox 360.
______________________________________________________

Hope this helped, see ya' later. :)

I am trying to connect to xbox live at a hotel and it says i do not have a sufficient mtu setting. i cant change the mtu setting because it isnt my network and i dont have a modem in the hotel room


Hotel wireless networks are not the best to be playing games on since everyone in the hotel has access to it and slows it down making the internet connection slower and unable to handle online gaming. You will just have to stick to single player games or split screen until you get home.

I am trying to get xbox live in my sons room, but my modem and router are located in the living room.it is wireless but i have no clue how this all works


The Xbox 360 does not have a wireless adapter built in. You must connect it through a CAT 5/5e/6 Ethernet cable, or purchase one of the Xbox Wireless Network adapters.

Ok, my router is way in the other room and I want to connect my Xbox 360 to the router for XBOX LIVE. The thing is, is that I can't find a way to get something to extend the wire that's connecting to both;...


There are several solutions to your problem .
1. Run Ethernet Cable from an attic & drop either end down in the walls of the two rooms . Hardwiring is always going to give you the fastest , most stable connection .
2. Purchase a set of Power Over Ethernet Modules , you then plug your ethernet cable into your Xbox 360 on one end & the Power Over Ethernet Adapter on the other end , then plug the " POE " Adapter into a standard electrical socket . You will do the exact same thing on the other end with the Router this time . It should connect just as if you ran a single ethernet cable between the 2 devices .
3. You can use a laptop or desktop pc with a Wifi connection & Ethernet port to Wifi Tether / Share your Internet Connection . Just do a google search on Wifi Tether Xbox 360 or check out some of the videos at

How to connect xbox 360 to the internet with laptop


I'm not sure if you can connect an Xbox 360 to the internet with a lap top. What I would do, is get a router (guessing that you already have one). But if you don't, it's basically a splitter for Ethernet cords. You plug the router into the Modem (the box that makes the internet), buy an Ethernet cord, plug it from the router to your Xbox and you should have internet. Or, you can get a wireless router, and get a network adapter for your Xbox to get internet wireless. But I don't think you can just get internet from your laptop.

Why does my xbox lag i got wireless router and modem but it started lagging 3 months ago for no apparent reason, no computer just laptop and that works fine upstairs in the same room as x box


There could be a trojan in one of the pc's that is leaking into the xbox making it run bad. Believe it or not, it was happening to our xbox. 3 pc's on one modem wireless, all were fine but one and the xbox 360 was direct into the modem via ethernet. We'd take my sons pc off line and the xbox would work great. Put the pc back online (connected to wireless) and the connection on xbox was back to awful.

Check and see if that's the problem.
