No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.
<p>With your xbox turned off unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your Xbox.Next unplug the xbox 360 power cord from the back of the Xbox 360.<br /></li>
<p>Unplug ethernet cable<br />
<p> and power cord from the modem. Wait for about 1 minute and then plug ethernet cable back into the modem.Now you need to plug other end of the ethernet cable into the back of the Xbox 360.<br /></li>
<p>Plug the modem power cord back into your modem , wait for lights to light up on your modem (this can take up to a minute).The last step is to plug the Xbox power cord into the back of the Xbox, turn it on and you are ready to go<br /></li></ol>
to do this you will need an ethernet chord. you plug the ethernet chord into your router or modem, turn on your console and open the xbox guide button it will give you the option to "Join Xbox Live" click the link and follow the instructions. let me kno if this helped or if you need clarification.
The D-Link DES-1008d is an unmanaged switch that does not need any configuration to work. You just need to plug in your device (PC/Xbox/Laptop) into one of the ports of the switch, using an ethernet patch cord, and it would start communicating with it. I think your xbox 360 already includes a patch cable in the box. You also need to connect the 1008d to your DSL/Cable/whatever modem, using a similar ethernet patch cord, in order to get online.
This is all that you need to do as far as your 1008d is concerned.
Once you have everything hooked up:
Ethernet cord going from modem into wireless router in port labelend internet or wan, and an ethernet cord going from the router to the xbox you should try these steps:
Unplug the power cord on the modem and plug it back in- once all the lights come back on
Unplug power cord on router and plug it back in-
Most cable company's will not allow you to use the USB and the ethernet connection at the same time. You will need to only use ethernet to your PC and your XBOX. Once you have the ethernet cord connected from your modem to the WAN/Internet port on your router you will need to press the reset button on the back of the arris to authorise the router for access. After that is done you will plug you XBOX into 1 of the 4 numbered ports on the router. Then you will need an additional ethernet cord for your PC.
