I don't quite understand your question: What is the "3" from which you got a USB broadband dongle?

Microsoft does sell a plug-in wireless networking adapter for the Xbox360. That's the only way to get Wifi networking enabled on the Xbox360. Your other alternative is to run a standard network cable from the Xbox360 to a network router / residential gateway that then connects to your cable or ADSL modem. If your broadband connection goes directly into your PC (no router / gateway) then I'm not sure how to fix that. You should call your broadband company and explain that you want to hook a game console into your home broadband network.

You can attach your 3 dongle to a computer and hard wire (ethernet) your xbox into the computer. Then set up a home network with your 3 modem as the internet connection it should then work fine. This is how a friend and me have set it up.

Can i connect to xbox live using vodafone mobile broardband usb stick

hi there,
you can't connect the usb stick to the xbox directly, but you can connect your xbox to your pc/laptop with the broadband usb stick in your pc/laptop and share the connection. while this will work, it's not going to be very fast and if you intend to play games online there will be a big lag. But it's better than nothing if that is all you have for internet connection. Anyway here's how. connect your laptop to your xbox using an ethernet cable, and have your usb dongle in your pc/laptop connected to the internet.
now depending on what os(operating system) you have on your computer, navigate to control panel>network and sharing>manage network connections.
once in here you want to enable sharing on your connection and tick the box allow other users to connect through this computers connection. then you want to select local area connection on the home network connection menu.
now you can test your xbox live connection to see if it connects to the internet, if it does happy gaming :)
If it fails, try making your connection to a public rather than private connection. If this method fails, try restarting your pc/laptop and then your xbox and go through the process again.
I know this can be tricky and alot of trial and error, but if this is all you have to connect to the internet and you really want to get online then it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.

Connect your 3g mobile broadband to an xbox360!

Have you ever wonder if you could connect your 3G mobile broadband modem to your xbox360? Well i have done it and it works fine.

What you will need to do is enable network sharing in your laptop/pc

I am using a vista laptop and orange mobile boradband, and this is how i done it!

First of all connect your 3G modem to your laptop/pc as you normaly would. Now get an ethernet cable and plug this into your laptops ethernet port and then into the back of your xbox's ethernet port.

Click on start> connect to> Then you will see "open network and sharing center" Click that. In the next window you will find all networks connected to your laptop/pc. You will see one below your normal internet connection called unidentified network. Click "view staus" Now in this window click and go to properties. now in this window click on the network tab at the top of the window. While now in this window click on enable network sharing via this device. Now go to your xbox360 and try to connect to Xbox live if at the first atempt it did not work test your connection via xbox as it will ask you to do this anyways. You should now be eable to connect to xbox live using your 3G modem.

Hope this helps!

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?

For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit

    How to connect to XboxLive via 1800HG 2WIRE+Linksys adaptor?

    The easiest way to connect to Xbox Live without using your pc is to buy a
    wireless network adapter for your Xbox.

    You would then go into the system settings on the Xbox and configure the settings for your wireless network.

    Xbox 360 - direct to internet - No PC.

    Unable to connect

    You have to set up a network bridge. It's pretty easy to do.

    - Highlight the connection thats online and the ethernet connection then right click and bridge.

    - Wait a few minutes, attempt to get on Live and it should work.

    Xbox live is not working

    How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.

    Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !
