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.
USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.
Is the PC's connected to the D-Link able to browse the Internet? Sometimes the MAC Address will bind to certain IP's and must be cleared out when the Router is replaced. Please unplug the power to the router, X-Box and Cable or DSL modem. 1st plug in the power to the DSL/Cable modem until the "Ready" light comes on. 2nd plug in the power to the D-Link Router, wait 30 seconds then plug in the X-Box, power on and test. If a computer plugged into the D-Link will browse Internet then this is the solution to your problem.
before you open your system up its ALWAYS a good idea to send in the xbox or at least call 1-800-4-MY-XBOX to see what they can do. It sounds like a hardware problem. Unless your no longer under warranty, I NEVER EVER suggest even touching one screw on your 360 unless your 100% in control and you know what your doing. Sending in a 360 can take days/weeks depending on the problem and where you live.
If there is a problem that you had no control over they'll replace it free.
You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
Primary DNS Server: 10.0.0.2
It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
Power down your Xbox 360.
Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.2 in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
User Name: admin
Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
Internal IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
Start Port: 0
End Port: 0
Click Save Changes
Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
Click Write Settings to Flash
Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
Enter the SSID of your network
Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
Go to the System area.
Select Network Settings.
Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.
Ok go to your computer, goto START/Control Panel/Network Connections. Then highlight your Local Area Connection and right click it. Click on properties and look for Internet Protocol, then click on the properties button below. See if your IP is set on manual or automatic. If it is manual it should have the IP address showing in the boxes. Write the number down and then put those numbers in the Network Settings on your Xbox 360 Dashboard. I hope this helps.
