you can't connect the usb stick to the xbox directly, but you can connect your xbox to your pc/laptop with the broadband usb stick in your pc/laptop and share the connection. while this will work, it's not going to be very fast and if you intend to play games online there will be a big lag. But it's better than nothing if that is all you have for internet connection. Anyway here's how. connect your laptop to your xbox using an ethernet cable, and have your usb dongle in your pc/laptop connected to the internet.
now depending on what os(operating system) you have on your computer, navigate to control panel>network and sharing>manage network connections.
once in here you want to enable sharing on your connection and tick the box allow other users to connect through this computers connection. then you want to select local area connection on the home network connection menu.
now you can test your xbox live connection to see if it connects to the internet, if it does happy gaming :)
If it fails, try making your connection to a public rather than private connection. If this method fails, try restarting your pc/laptop and then your xbox and go through the process again.
I know this can be tricky and alot of trial and error, but if this is all you have to connect to the internet and you really want to get online then it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.
Based on your concern, I suggest trying the following steps:
1. Before you plug it in make sure the PSP is in USB connect mode. --> Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not this is how you do it: On the main menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Then select "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format Memory Stick" and press X. 2. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. 3. Press the "home" button on the PSP --> at the lower left of the screen you can see the home button. 4. Use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP. 5. Press the "X" button, your PSP should display "USB Connection". 6. Please wait until your computer tells you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F: 7. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
If you have a Windows PC, you can connect the Xbox 360 to it with an
Ethernet cable and then plug the modem into the PC. Windows Internet
Connection Sharing then lets you share the mobile broadband connection
with the Xbox 360.
Unfortunately, the NAT settings for mobile broadband services are
controlled by the provider. This will affect your ability to connect to Xbox Live or play games with other people.
Any questions leave me a comment or testimonial. Hope this helps.
The internet stick you have would be a USB device which is not supported by Xbox 360, you can connect to Xbox 360 wirelessly or through a wired connection
One way of connecting wireless internet is through the ethernet cable to a laptop paired with your wireless router, or you would have to buy a Wi-Fi adapter for Xbox 360 which retails around $90.
Since Xbox 360 does not have a software like a PC, it is unable to recognize the USB internet stick you have as a internet connection, it may probably end up showing it up just as a USB device on the system settings menu on the Xbox 360 dashboard
How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.
Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !
