if you have a usb modem and a laptop it is real easy. I hav been playing xboxlive in nigeria since i move here, but it is not as much fun. your ping or latency is goin to be really high because of the facts that there is no xboxlive in nigeria and nigerian internet aint that good. you will hav to join British or American xboxlive. its sumtimes fustratating. ill give the steps in any case 1) connect xbox 360 to laptop with ethernet cable 2) change ur ip of xbox to 192.168.0.2, and ur pc ip to 192.168.0.1 3) do not do anything to DNS 4) Go to network and sharing center >> manage network connections >> right click on dail up icon >> properties >> click on sharing tabs, and check all blocks. click apply ok and what not 5) try to connect to xbox live, it wont work right away, so try and try 6) if u hav any problems, search it on google NOTE: Thins is for Windows Vista and Windows 7
unless a 360 has a modem built into it, you're gonna need one. also, you may need to set up an Xboxlive account to do ANYTHING. check your settings on the console as well to make sure things are working.
every computer has an ip adress you might have to go to your internet setting and find some thing that says some thing like... internet adress hook up hopefully you keep files on your computer becuase with out your ip adress you might not be able to hook up its sorta like a combination hope it helpes:)
if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.
by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22
In order to connect your XBOX 360 to your laptop (if the laptop is connected via dial-up), you'll need a cross-over ethernet cable. It's a special type of ethernet cable, which is typically the same price as a regular ethernet cable, but it allows two devices (in your case) to communicate with each other. Then, you'll need to configure your laptop to allow incoming connections via your Control Panel -> Internet Connections preferences.
hey im having almost same problem, i got a motorola s8vs SURFboard cable modem with a battery in it and my ethernet ccord runs from my modem to my xbox but yet my xbox cant read my ip adress, why is this.. do you know?
From the question above I think you are saying that when you unplug your Ethernet cable from your Internet connection out of your E-BOX and try to use it in your laptop, it doesn't work. If this is correct, then it's probably that your ISP only allows for 1x active address to be used at any one time. To overcome the problem you'll need to also power recycle your Internet modem to clear out the MAC address of the X-BOX once you've unplugged it and before you make the laptop connection. You would have to do this each time you wanted to swap between the devices.
Alternatively, get yourself a Router to sit in between the Modem and end devices and then have an additional permanent cable / 2nd physical port to use.
I have to assume that you are hooking it up to a router, most Linksys and Netgear routers have DHCP on by default so you should allow the XBOX to accept a DHCP assigned IP address. If not then you'll need to figure out if your router is using a private IP address scheme of either 192.168.0.X or 192.168.15.x - if the xbox is your only device on the ethernet network besides the router then you could use 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.15.2 for the xbox, depending, again, on the scheme in use by your router. The router should be .1 by default. Hope that helps.
