Re: internet connection for 360 elite

You can purchase as much ethernet cable as you need. You can purchase pre-made ethernet (cat5e) cable at circuit city, best buy, compusa etc. for not too much money. They usually sell in up to 50 or 100 foot rolls, if thats how much you'll need. If you're going over 100 feet I'd suggest going with cat6 cable, instead of cat5 because it can handle longer distances better.

I have a tevion steering wheel (5 years old not used yet) can I connect it to my xbox 360 elite. the connection leads have 4 plugs one for GC, one for Play station 1/2 , one for pc(usb) and one for Xbox....

Sorry to be the one to break this to you mate, but the Tevion steering wheel is only compatible with the following;
  • Game Cube
  • Playstation 1
  • Playstation 2
  • PC
  • Original Xbox
Now I can not guarantee this will work, but before you give up completely, Try Using the USB plug for the PC in one of the USB ports for the xbox 360 elite. They are located to the right of the front if you have your xbox 360 elite lying down flat, under a small flap. I use a Keyboard intented for a computer with my xbox 360 S in the same manner, so hopefully that will work.

When my Xbox is plugged in my phone line doesn't work.

The Xbox 360 Console is not compatible with a dial up connection or a phone line. It will only work with an Ethernet connection and some sort of high speed internet. You can also use the wireless built in the new 360s or purchase a wireless adapter for the older models if you have a wireless router with high speed internet in your home already.

My new 250gb xbox 360 is not connecting to the internet

If it is a new Slim you need to have a wireless router... but if it is an Arcade, Pro, or Elite you need to have a cord connecting to the Xbox to the internet router.

Cant git xbox live with internet card in my notebook

As in an internet card that acts as a wireless receiver? If so, these things don't transmit wirelessly, so it's just for internet in your laptop. You need either an ethernet cable running from a land line, or a wireless receiver for the 360 with a wireless router.

Cant share xbox with pc don't know how tae dae it

I ended up isolating my network from the internet by disonecting the modem, then turning off my internet security, then my Xbox connected fine. After they connected I reenabled my security and reconnected to the internet. Everything works fine now.

My xbox 360 dosent read my halo 3 disk my game dosent work when i put it in the 360 and now my game does not work

So at first Halo3 stopped working then other games stopped working?

Sounds like your lens is dirty. You can buy a cheap lens cleaner (looks like a cd with brushes on it). What I do is open the tray and pull the power when it is halfway open. From there I take a compressed air can and use an extension to blow any dust off the lens.

You can also copy your games directly to your hard drive if you have ample space. This helps with scratched disks and such. When you do this, you will still need the game disk in the tray to play.

Is your Internet connection able to Reach to the Xbox 360?? If it is then you probably have to try asking a friend to join your game to see if it works. If it doesn't work then try moving the Xbox 360 closer to your Wireless Connection. O Btw... People dont always join your games.

Xbox 360 elite live

It may have trouble recieving the ip addrees from the router, but not sure what switch you are using if you have a router you should connect directly unless its a wireless switch.
