    What is the model of your Linksys router?

  • Dennis H May 11, 2010

    Is the router already connected to a modem ? If so and it has picked up the modems IP address, you can hook up both Xbox machines using 2 network cables , once turned on they with both aquire seperate IP address's and go on the internet.

    If you have a laptop, or desktop computer connected to the router , you can check the settings online but I need to know what brand of router you have

Id say yes it can be done by folowing these steps on both xboxes
1. Make sure your wireless router is correctly connected to your Internet access and is broadcasting the wireless signal.

  • Step 2 Connect the Xbox 360 console to a Microsoft-manufactured WiFi adapter with a USB connection. This is different from an older Xbox console, which required an ethernet connection.
  • Step 3 Turn on the console and navigate to the Wireless Settings menu. Go to "System - Network Settings" and then finally to "Edit Settings."
  • Step 4 Configure the console's SSID to match that of the router. The SSID will be pre-selected and appear on the Xbox's display if the router is set to broadcast the SSID. Go to "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter the SSID.
  • Step 5 Set the Network Mode to "Infrastructure."
  • Step 6 Set the security of the Xbox 360 to match the router's security. Set the console to WEP or WPA encryption, whichever one the router uses, and enter the router's encryption key.
  • Step 7 Save all your settings after configuring them. Confirm that the console is connected to the network by going to the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option. This will tell you if your wireless connection is working.

    I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


    Hi,

    XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

    All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
    Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

    alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

    Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
    It will work

    Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

    (However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

    Need proper setup for linksys befsr41 to xbox


    If the router is already set up, all you should have to do is run cable from router to xbox. Xbox should be set to automatically detect settings.

    Belkin wireless will no longer work with xbox or 360


    You need to open the ports that the xbox and PSP uses to connect to the internet in your router. Contact your Router's support and ask them to open the ports in the router for you so that you can connect your game and go online. this is issue with port being blocked.

    Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router


    If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

    360 mtu test keeps failing


    Access the routers setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 (ip address of the router) on the address bar on IE.

    then on basic setup page at the bottom part of the page you will see MTU normally its on auto,
    to change the value set it to manual. ask your isp what is their prefferred value for the mtu you can go as high as 1300 to 1500.

    What equipment do I need?


    here you go, the short answer. Just a simple re-wire and reconfigure (see attachment).




    For the hub I recommend one of these (I have one and it's pretty much plug in play):
