Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller
I use a standard ethernet cable to connect to my pc, it will connect to media centre on vista but then i test connection to pc it says my router will not assign a ip address. ive imputed a ip address manually but the problem still exsists. any help would greatly appreciated
If u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.
by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22
glad i could help!!! :3
