Re: hooking up xbox 360 to router

Hi, If I may assume, currently the modem is connected directly to the back of the tower (PC) by a lan cable. To connect the AP/Router, remove the LAN cable from the back of the PC and connect it to the WAN input of the router. With another LAN cable, connect one of the 4 ports of the router to the LAN card of the PC. Go to the router's Web Configuration Utility and make sure Wireless, SSID, broadcast and DHCP is enabled. For the moment, WEP, WPA and MAC Filter off. See if you can connect you XBox 360. Hope this be of help/idea to you. Good luck and post back should you need additional information. Kind regards.

Where do i hook up my x box 2 the computer

It's quite simple actually. All you need to do, is buy one eithernet cable and have a router. (continued below)
Step 1. If it's an Xbox 360 it would've come with one ethernet cord. If it's an original Xbox, then you'll need to buy 2 instead of the intended 1.

Step 2. Make sure the ethernet cable from your modem is in the back plugged into the router, also make sure that another cable is plugged into the back of your computer and also to the back of your router (thats what one of the cables is for).

Step 3. Now take the second cable (the one that you bought) or the cable came with the xbox system and plug that into the back of your system into the ethernet slot.

Step 4. Plug the cable you just plugged into your system into a third open slot on the back of the router and Voila! you are ready to "Pwn The Noobs" on a 'lil XBL. Mind you that Xbox Live does cost money ($50 or so a year). Now you can play with friends, transfer pictures or movies or music, depending on if its an original or xbox 360!...I hope this helps

p.s. - You will need to do a few more things: go to system setup on the xbox dashboard (all the way to the right on the screen where your profiles are kept) then go to computer setup. Then you will get a code to enter at

The above will only hook up the Xbox 360 console to the INTERNET by routing the internet to it, a router just splits the internet and assigns internal IP addresses in order to allow internet use by both the computer and the Xbox console. If you meant how to hook up the console to "Browse" its hard-drive/DVD drive/etc., it is not quite as easy. You should look up "Xbox 360 hotswapping" in google or something and that will show you how to view the hard drive contents.

My router is on, and is hooked up to my verizon modem. My xbox 360 and my computer are both hooked up to the router and all the lights are on but only my computer is working for the internet where my 360...

with verizon, you need to set the modem to full bridged mode so that the connection from your modem will be opened. This certain firewall is called NAT. Your modem and your router has this feature. To disable NAT on your modem, you need to set it to full bridged mode. To disable the NAT on your router, you need to open ports on your router.

You need to open this port on the router for Xbox live to work
TCP: 80, 3074, 53

UDP: 88, 3074

forward it to the ip of your Xbox.

this should set the NAT on your xbox to open, not moderate.

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)

Make sure your modem or router is compatible with XBOX. I think Microsoft has a lost of working modems and routers. If this is all clear, connect the eth.cable to the modem/router. Power up the modem FIRST then the xbox. All this without any cd/dvd in the tray.
Usually as simple as that...

Want to hook laptop up to home computer via cable modem

You need a router or a wireless router to do that.
If your cable modem is wireless you can set directly via wireless network a connection with your laptop (the laptop also need a wireless card (if dont have any built in))
The connection must be done in this way

ISP ----->> Cable Modem ---->> Wireless Router o Router ----->> Computer ( 1, 2, or more)

How do I get my connection to stay on?

While the modem is connected to the router, and both are turned on, try unplugging the modem power cable for 30 seconds then plugging it back in, this will force the modem to recognize the router as a trusted device.

If this does not work, check to make sure the cables between your modem and your router, and between the router and your xbox are secure, and that they are in good condition. If they are older cables and the connectors are pulling off the end of the wire, replace them.

Next you can try connecting your xbox directly to your modem, once again, unplug the modem while connected and plug back in. If you still have the problem after this step, then you've narrowed the problem down to either the modem, or the network adaptor on the xbox.

Xbox 360 dns problems

There is an option that needs to be set on your router. I cannot recall the exact setting, but Im sure google can yeild the results. I would also give the XBOX a static address and put that address in the DMZ. Umm... My friend had the same issue, and I will check with him and report back.
