Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Xbox360 live setup

I have a computer upstairs which runs on a wireless connection. the router is downstairs in the hall as sky said that is where it has to be due to the fact that this is the main phone line.
the xbox 360 is in the same room as the computer. i thought if i just ran the ethernet cable from the xbox360 to the computer and clicked on share the internet that this would work.
a young man in the game store in town told me that this is what he has done.
it isn`t working??? help......please......

When your in the dashboard on your 360 go to the right all the way to the system slide. click netowrk settings then click the ip address box be sure this is set to automatic, and be suree that the DNS box is on automatic as well. if this doesnt work then your cables may be hooked up wrong or some other issue.

Yes, a wireless router should work fine.
You'll need a wireless-adapter (either internal PCI add-in card, or external USB stick) in your computer, if it does not have built-in wireless capability.

Cant connect to internet with main computer, one upstairs is fine


The upstairs computer is wired or wireless ?

If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly.
Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router.
If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer.

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".

Cannot get internet connection on pc with wireless adapter


The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...

Problem connecting to my network


What I would do is replace the wireless router with a 4 or 5 port switch to control computers (devices) downstairs. Or, if you need wireless access, purchase only an access point to cover downstairs.

This way the wire from upstairs goes directly into the access point and you have wireless access downstairs.

And yet another way would be to purchase Airlink 101 PowerEthernet boxes ($54.99 each) and use those to connect an access point anywhere in your home that has an outlet.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G


Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at Lifehacker.com.
