Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
This is an easy to fix problem but your ethernet cable is not going to work.
What you need is a special cable that is called a cross-over cable - you can purchase this from most computer stores, however if the length needed is longer than 12 feet you may have trouble finding the cable. You can either use an adapter or have a cable custom made for you - and computer repair shop that offers setup services should be able to mae the cable for you - I do this all the time for my local clients.
Once you have the cross-over cable, plug that into both systems, load the game that you want to play and then engage system link - you do not need to do anything with the IP settings on either system as peer-to-peer play like this uses system link and not the IP network.
