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.

Am trying to get xbobx live for my nephews birthday, hes got the xbox 360 ellite, but its not the shinny latest model do i need a wireless adapter as well as the router that came with my broadband, but we...


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.

Here is a link to an example of what it looks like: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-n-networking-adapter/76045?ref=recpdp&cross=802124

And a cheaper older model: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-network-adapter/40678

And here is a link to Xbox step by step wirless hookup: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-live/get-started/connecting/wireless.aspx

If you are having specific issues then ask away and I can see what I can do to help you out. Try to be specific on what your current setup is and what problems you are having. thanks.

We have a wireless router connected to two computers upstairs and have tried to connect our Wii to the Internet which is downstairs, it is picking up the access point but will not connect, is it too far...


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.

MTU fail


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

Ive got a 40gb ps3 and a bt home hub wireless router how do i connect ps3 to computer ps ps3 is upstairs and pc downstairs


look on the back of your home hub. there should be a Wireless Key in a Grey box. (BT Home Hub wireless settings)

note the wireless key.

go to your ps3. and turn it on log on ect. go to settings and down to network settings (right at bottom).

(Im not sure of the next section because im currently on a network but it should be an option to find network).

anyway you search for networks. should find your home hub.

keep going right untill you have to enter any settings. and write your WEP Key (Not WKA). (wireless key from back of router).

Cant connect to xbox live through router


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.
