PK5000 Wireless connection to Mac. Ethernet from Mac to xbox.

I had a Motorola 3477 modem that was giving me intermediate wireless internet connection. I had it set up so my mac was wireless, and then I ran a Ethernet out of it to my xbox, using my mac as a router. Xbox Live worked fine except for the random intermittent connection losses. So I called qwest and they sent me a PK5000. I installed it and got it all up and running but now Xbox live will not work. I set my mac and xbox up via these directions http://www.ofzenandcomputing.com/zanswers/358
which worked fine with the other modem... which makes me think i need to change settings in the modem.

SOURCE: xbox live via cricket wireless

I can connect to XBox Live through this fashion on my Cricket Modem:

Now, I have had problems with this fix running Windows 7 (still can't get it to work), but I didn't have any struggles with XP or Vista.

You need to go into Manage Network Connections, right click on your Cricket Modem, and select Properties.

Click the Share Tab, and click it so it allows other users to connect through that network connection. Now, go to the Networking tab under Properties and right click on the Internet Protocol Version 6 and make sure it is automatically assigning both DNS and the 6 IP, Apply.

Next do the same with the TCP/IPV4 section under Networking, make sure everthing is automaticaly assigning.

Click on the Router and make sure that it is automatically assigning the Internet Protocol 4 and 6. Now click diagnos, and it should reset the router, automatically apply the correct settings, and bam. You SHOULD be able to connect with XBox Live.

I have no problems with this with Vista and XP, as I stated before. But now my main computer is running the 7 RC and I can't figure the darn thing out yet. So I figured out a cute solution. I took my Dell Mini, connected the Cricket Modem to it, and ran an ethernet cord from the XBox to the Mini.

Pretty much same solution after that, only instead of selecting your router, you select the LAN connection that is not your Cricket. For me itassigns the XBox as LAN and the Cricket as LAN2.

Let's see how it goes. :)

I have internet but will not let me on xbox live


You dont just need internet you need a modem to give you wireless internet but if you have an older xbox it will need a Ethernet cord that goes directly to your modem and even then you will probably have to use a WEP key or wireless ethernet Password that is also located on the bottom of your modem.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

How do i initially install the sbg901 wireless cable modem


Locate the MAC id number on the modem. May be called the HRC mac id. Write this number down.

Connect the modem to an active cable outlet with a coax cable (the type that you would screw into the back of your tv).

Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.

Connect the power cord and plug it into a power outlet.

Turn your computer on.

Call your cable provider and choose the options for tech support for internet.

They will need that MAC id number and then they should be able to set it up on your account and allow access to the internet.

Thanks,
Robert

I want to plug in another wireless router into my surfboard modem and have the wireless router work as well as the surfboard. Is there a way to do this successfully?


Yes this is possiable. First you need to unplug the power to the Motorola and the new router. Second connect the ethernet cable from the Motorola to the internet port on your second router. This port may be colored in yellow, marked as modem, or the ethernet port by its self. Third connect a ethernet cable from the new router to a desktop or laptop this is only to configure the new router. Next power on the Motorola and wait for the online light to become solid. Then plug in the power to the new router. Give the router about two minutes to obtain ip address from the motorola then try to get on the internet with the pc connected with the ethernet cable. Now you can run the new router setup cd on the wired pc to setup router. Once completed remove ethernet cable to the pc and connect to either network you have and you are good to go. Any questions just ask.

I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


Hi,

XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work

Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

Cannot connect 2 computers to Motorola SBG900 wireless cablemodem


mac and pc security keys are not interchangable. I suggest not using a a key for both units. You can reset the router by unplugging it for 1 minute. or you gain access to the router through the web address. 192.168.1.1 Type this into the address bar to gain access to the router.

XBOX 360 not connected to wireless connection on Linskys WAG54G2


You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.
