X box 360

I have a wireless router in one room and my Xbox 360 is in another room with my wireless computer . I hooked up my 360 to my computer using an ethernet cable . I'm trying too the ICS to connect to the internet so i can play online but the Xbox 360 can't pick up an IP address when I test it . My computer gets online just fine but it won't share the connection with the X box 360 .

    I'm having the same problem, but I have doubts that it can be resolved. The Xbox page on compatible networking devices doesn't list the DI-514. See here:

    That said, I've tried connecting at a friend's house where he's using a brand new Linksys WRT54GS router, and it still can't connect. And it's supposedly an Xbox compatible router.

    The irony is that my friend's Wii has no problem at all connecting to the internet, and does so with minimum setup (we just entered the network's WEP and were done). Funny how Nintendo seems to have a better understanding of this Windows networking stuff than Microsoft does.

You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.

How do u connect an an xbox 360 to xbox live

You need either a blue Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox to an internet outlet or a wireless router. If you use the wireless router, hook it up to your computer so it broadcasts a signal, then, depending on what Xbox you have, if its the new 360 slim you won't need a wireless adapter, you search for the signal, then connect it. If you don't have the 360 slim, then you need to buy a wireless adapter and it plugs into the back of the Xbox.

I need to hook up my xbox 360 to the internet using a netgear router but my computer is in a different room what wires go where

The router needs to sit near the phone line.
Then run LAN cables to your 360 and PC from your router.

Can't get on line

If you are using an access point or a router to get onto the internet you have to ensure that the unit has been set to accept the Xbox 360 as an authorized unit.

Cannot get wireless router to work with Xbox 360

Does the westell router only have 1 ethernet port, if so a ethernet hub would be better, they can be baught for about £10.
You will need to input your account settings for your broadband conection into your new router for it to work, with this router all you actually need to do is connect it to the 360 with an ethernet cable, if you want to use it wirelessly you need to buy a wireless adapter for the 360 for about £30 - £60 depending where you buy it.
