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.

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.

I want to PLAY online on XBOX original (not xbox 360).. What cabels do i need????

You just need a regular patch cable to plug into the back of your XBOX original and plug the other end in the back of your router [or cable modem]. If you want to use wireless, you need a special wireless adapter which they do not make anymore:

(this sez XBox 360 Ethernet cable -- but it's just a regular pc network cable which works on all network adapter connections)

If you have a wireless router and modem unplug both of them leave unplugged for about 5 minutes plug in modem first after its all the way booted up plug in the router that should work and also make sure all cords to modem and router are plugged in good.If you don't have a router just unplug the modem for 5 minutes and plug it back in and let it boot all the way up then see if you can get on.

Hi akemccarthy

you may need to open the ports for the linksys Router aswell
because the linksys links the belkin to the internet there using a shared connection

once youve fowarded the ports properly check to see if you have enabled the UPNP on both of the routers if they have any

heres a website showing how to port forward the ports you need opening
