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......

Re: xbox360 live setup
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.

If you do not have a router that you can plug directly into the back of the Xbox 360 then yes you will need to purchase a wireless router to sync up with your wireless router that you already have downstairs. You didn't specify if your broadband router had wireless capabilities? Does it? If not then you will need to buy a wireless router to be able to hook up your Xbox 360.
Microsoft has their own personal wireless router that fits on the back of the Xbox 360 nicely. I would recommend you purchase it due to ease of installation and compatability.
if ur xbox has the wireless adapter it doest need to be plugged in. if you dont have that adapter, you must either buy it and connect wirelessly or purchase a cable long enough to reach the router downstairs
Well the only solution that would help you out in this case would be to either keep your Wii where it currently is downstairs, or move it closer to the router. Besides that you could also purchase yourself a better, more upgraded router, or purchase a wifi extension for your router and/or Wii.
ok well I found a fix but it may not be simple. anyway, i got my xbox360 to work off of my girlfriends laptop by feeding internet to the laptop from the cable modem via usb and then from the laptop to the xbox360 via ethernet. just right click usb connection in network connections and click sharing tab, then activate sharing and tell it to share connection with lan connection... you can also share through wireless if your xbox is wireless. I tried running all this through a dsl wireless router and a basic hub and both of them gave ip address and mtu errors... good luck
Hey stchivo, not entirely sure what's happening. It might help to know what type of router you have. I know the new linksys routers have a new security feature by the name of SES or something of the sort. Make sure that is disabled and that DHCP is enabled. Also make sure a firewall on the router isn't blocking it. It might help to have screenshots of your router settings to better evaluate what's happening.
