Hi.

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.

Have fun!

I can connect to xbox live wireless when in same room as router but go upstairs and can not connect..help please


Could be due to metal in the floor like insulation shielding the radio.
Would suggest using a power point switch if power points are on same power circuit

and then either connect power point network switch to another wireless access point upstairs to cover upstairs area. All settings have to be the same as wi fi router down stairs. Same encryption password . Or you could just plug the Xbox into the power point ethernet network switch via ethernet blue cable.

I need to use my laptop to connect my xbox online


Get yourself a pair of homeplugs.

Connect 1 homeplug next to your modem and connect it to the modem. Then connect the other one to your xbox and you should get your network working to it.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Connecting powerline ethernet adapters through orange livebox


Try to eliminate the problem into smaller parts. Try networking the two via the same power outlet via a multiple power board first in the same room. I don't have much experience with these powerline ethernet but i'm sure the configuration of these will be very similar as wireless router / access points and wireless adapter cards. However what I do know is that your power outlets need to be on the same "phase" of your electrical power system, so if you do this test I suggest (from one outlet board) you know the equipment works and your setup procedure works. then try seperating again and if it still doesnt work, check if your power outlets are wired on seperate phases (depends if your house has 3 phase wiring incoming to your home or not). Try another room or another outlet.
