    My laptop will find the router and the key is good but it just says authenticating and it sits there looking for approx. 3-5 mins and then finds any available and connects.

Xbox live 'internet' connection failing.


This will be why...

you need to wire the xbox to the router.

if you wire it to your laptop then its just a network connection between the laptop and the xbox.

Im not to sure but if you keep the same setup you may be able to share the internet connection.

For xbox live you dont need to connect it to the laptop.

If you have a router you can go wireless if you have the xbox adaptor or you can use a ethernet cable fromt he router to the xbox, which is a faster connection.

If you want to connect to your laptop to play music ETC go to www.xbox.com/pcsetup to download the media centre extender, this will then connect the laptop to the xbox.

Hope this helps

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

How do i connect to xbox live with a router


Shared connection with a modem and a router
1. Turn the modem off, and then turn it back on. Then turn the router power off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the modem and the router.

Power cycle the modem first, and then power cycle the router. To power cycle these devices, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the modem by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait several minutes for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the modem shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. If power cycling your modem and router does not resolve the problem, try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox LIVE by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. If this setup works without the router, there is probably a configuration issue with the router. See the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
3. Verify that your router's Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service has been enabled. DHCP enables the router to assign IP addresses to the computers and consoles on your network when you go online. If you need help with this, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
4. If you manually entered an IP address, gateway, subnet mask and/or DNS servers in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard , verify that it they are correct. At this point, you can also set your IP settings to Automatic. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Move to the System area.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Automatic.
5. If your ISP requires Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) settings, try connecting to only the modem after you enter these settings in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard. Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard.

Note Some ISPs may require Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/resources/glossary.htm#ethernet) (PPPoE) settings, This means that you may need settings such as a username and password in order to gain access to your ISP’s network. If you are unsure whether you have to enter these settings, please contact your ISP support group. At this point, if you can connect directly to the modem, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router.
6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with a gateway device (combined modem and router)
1. Make sure that the gateway is turned on. A gateway integrates a high-speed Internet modem with a router.
2. Verify that there is network activity by looking for the sequence of blinking lights on your gateway that generally indicate Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN), and connected power status.
Note These names will vary from model to model.
3. Turn the gateway device off, and then turn it back on. This is also known as power cycling the gateway. To power cycle this device, you should follow your manufacturer’s specific instructions. Here are some general steps:
a. Remove the power supply from your device.
b. Leave the device unplugged for 15 to 30 seconds.
c. Reattach the power supply to the gateway by following the device manufacturer’s instructions.
d. Wait for the device to start and to establish a connection with your broadband provider.
e. Verify that the gateway shows the appropriate power and Internet connection indicator lights by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
4. The IP address that you entered in to the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Be sure that this address is correct, or set your IP settings to Automatic in the Xbox Dashboard.
5. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section of the Xbox Dashboard, turn off all devices on the network. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected.

If this works, there may be a configuration issue on the router’s Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. DHCP enables the router to assign temporary IP addresses to the computers on your network when you go online. If you need help with understanding DHCP or the configuration, see the manufacturer’s documentation that is included with the router or contact the technical support group for the router.
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing
1. Verify that you can surf the Internet from your PC. If you cannot surf the Internet, there is probably a problem with your Internet connection. Contact your ISP for support.

If you are using a USB modem to connect to the Internet, the modem will be listed in the "Dial-up" window as the connecter that you are sharing and that you have configured. To verify that Internet Connection Sharing configured it correctly, use the following steps:
a. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
b. In Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.
c. Right-click your broadband connection, and then click Properties.
d. In the Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
e. Click to select the Allow other users to connect through this computer’s internet connection check box.
f. Click OK.
Ethernet Properties
2. Power cycle the modem. If the modem does not have an on and off switch, unplug the modem from the power outlet. You cannot follow this step if you are using a USB modem. Instead, go to the next step. You must follow this step if you are switching the modem between the Xbox 360 console and a computer.
3. On the computer, click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK.
4. On the View menu, click Tiles.
5. If the connection is listed as Firewalled, the firewall may have to be configured. See your firewall documentation.
6. Enter manual settings in the Xbox 360 Dashboard for IP address, subnet mask, DNS address and gateway and test the connection: To edit the settings:
a. In the Xbox 360 dashboard, move to the System section.
b. Select Network Settings.
c. Select Edit Settings.
d. Enter the following:
• IP Address : 192.168.0.2
• Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
• Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1
• DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1Xbox 360: Test Xbox LIVE connection fails at IP address
