How to use a cell phone as a wireless modem for xbox360 problem:


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.

Hello Brian

Using Xbox Live on Dial up Modem would be a big pain, still listing the steps for you, hope you have a stable connection to successfully connect

Required Items

- Windows ME, XP, Vista
- PC with dial-up connection working
- Ethernet Cable (RJ45) cable or CROSSOVER CABLE
- Xbox 360

Let's Get Started

1. First connect the Xbox 360 and the PC using the Ethernet cable.
2. Double Click your Dial-up Network connection and wait for it to connect.
3. Choose "Start Menu" and then choose "Settings" then "Control Panel".
4. Select "Network and Internet Connections".
5. Open the "Network Setup Wizard" and then press "Next".
6. On the next screen Ignore the checklist and press "Next" again.
7. Select "This Computer connects directly to the internet." and press "Next".
8. Now Select your dial-up internet connection as your default connection to the Internet and press "Next".
9. Select "Local Area Connection" as your private connection and leave all other areas untouched and click "Next".
10. On the Workgroup screen leave all settings alone and click the "Next" button.
11. On the next screen Turn on "File and Printer Sharing" if you want to share your files, mp3's, divx files with your xbox 360 and click "Next".
12. Now review the settings and click "Next" to apply the changes.
13. You do not need to run the Network Setup Wizard on any other pc's so just click "Next" and continue.
Now that the wizard has completed you may need to reboot your PC and dial your internet connection again.

Now we have configured your PC to share its internet connection and files to your Xbox 360 we need to configure the Xbox 360.

(Steps for old Xbox 360 Dashboard, in case you do not have NXE dashboard)

1. Go to the "Xbox 360 Dashboard".
2. Select the "System" Blade.
3. Select the "Network Settings" Option
4. Now choose "Test Xbox LIVE Connection".

Your Xbox 360 will now attempt to contact your home network. It will check to make sure it can assign itself a IP ADDRESS from your PC and then it will also check DNS server information and XBOX LIVE.

Why isn't my xbox 360 connecting to the internet anymore i have reset my modem and everything


Check your Ethernet cable is plugged in tight. Also you might have to open ports, and also make sure you can use internet on computer.. if it works, then also make sure.. "Share Connection" is enabled!

CONNECT XBOX 360 TO COMPUTER


you are only sharing files with your pc to xbox, you cannot connect to the net throught the pc, the xbox has to have connection to a modem/router, or a router itself which is connected to modem.

2 Solutions-----

Number 1 - If your ethernet cord is going from a modem straight to your 360, then get your modem replaced by your ISP.
This will probobly be free, but if your charged, it will be a small fee.

Number 2 - If you have it going to a routerfrom a modem, then go to your 360 main screen, scroll to the far right 'System' blade, select the 4th choice 'Network Settings', and test your Xbox LIVE Connection. It will ask you to sign out. Select yes.

Results should come up (for wired router)

Network Adapter - Wired
Wireless Network - (Left Blank)
IP Address - Confirmed
DNS - Confirmed
MTU - Confirmed
ICMP - Confirmed
XBOX LIVE - Confirmed
NAT - (either moderate, opened, or strict)

If all those are the same, the problem has nothing to do with the xbox itself and you need a new router, or modem.

If results come out to be
''Network Adapter - Disconnected''
After test is run (and your 360 is connected properly to your router AND modem then you have a hardware problem. Whether the problem is in the 360 or the router/modem is easy to test.

Connect the modem directly to the 360 via ethernet. If this fixes the problem, the router is fail.

If you can get on the internet wirelessly and grounded on a computer, the 360 is busted.


Sorry it took me so long to explain that, but i hope it helps you.

Best of luck

NAT


Everyone has NAT, whether its strict (which i'm guessing yours is) mederate, or open.

Open NAT can be achieved by buying a new router or connecting your 360 via ethernet to your modem. If you connect it to your modem, restart both the modem and your 360 and you WILL have an open NAT

Xbox Live (Xbox 360) Strict NAT PROBLEM!


You can hook it up to your computer where the ethernet connection is then plug in your internet through USB and if it still doesn't work then it is most likely a problem with your computer's security at that point. You can also call 1-800-MYXBOX for technical support and every time i have called they have been pretty good and they were also American every time so they were easy to understand.

Nat / strict


First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
