Hi there, you dont need to disconnect anythink they will all link together,

If you can link the xbox and Router with a eithernet cable, this way its alot faster.

if your using wireless then you have to pair the router with the xbox.

hope this helps

    You need the WEP key, should be at the bottom of the router, enter that into the Xbox then theres a button on the routher, maybe a button with the number one or a wireles button, press this to set as pairing mode, then press accept on the xbox and you should have it all paired up :)

How to play games on line what do i need and do i need special soft ware


You don't need any special software, just the internet. If you have a router or modem just hook a regular ethernet from the modem/router to the back of the XBOX. Then you will have to set up an XBOX Live account. You can see instructions here After that, you should be able to play your games against other people online.

yeah a better modem would be the easiest thing to do because it's clear that the one you've got is either not transmtting properly or is just the unit you'vee got has a fault in it

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360


If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!
