How do you set up the xbox to wireless connection

Turn on the unit without a game CD in the drive; this brings up the main Xbox menu or “Xbox Dashboard
Using the joystick’s control pad, go to“Settings” then click the “A” button on the joystick

From the “Settings” menu, go to“Network Settings” and click the “A” button on the joystick

The “Network Settings” window has various options to connect the Xbox to a network or directly to an ISP using PPPoE. Click the “A” button to select “IP Address

The Xbox defaults to DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol). If there is a good network connection to your HomePortal, you should see the IP address fields populated. If the Xbox was previously configured for a static IP address, click the “A” button on “Configuration” and select “Automatic”. Click the “A” button to accept the changes or the “B” button on the joystick to go back up one level in the menu

The “DNS Servers” (Domain Name Service) is set to “Automatic” by default; you may need to reset it to a previous static setting. Simply click the “A” button and change the setting to “Automatic”, then click the “A” button to save the changes

PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) is turned off by default; if the Xbox was connected directly to a DSL modem before the HomePortal was installed, you need to change it back to “Off”. Simply click the “A” button on the “Configuration” menu and change to “Off”, then click the “A” button to save the setting.

The “Advanced” tab has the configuration menu for the Xbox-branded wireless adapter, where you change the DHCP Host Name and spoof the MAC (Media Access Control) address if necessary

Verify the settings; click the “Connect” option and click the “A” button to test the network connection.

The system now checks the physical connection, verifies the IP and DNS addresses then tests the connection to the Xbox Live service. If everything is ok, the test shows “Connected to Xbox Live

Xbox connected through network cable to pc ! what do i need to perform on pc through my wireless usb port connected to go online

If you are running Windows Vista on your PC here is how you can route your XboX360 through your PC/Laptop in order to get on Xbox Live Wirelessly:

1. Set up a Static IP address in Vista. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Network & Sharing Center -> Manage Network Connections

2. Right-click on Local Area Connection and go to Properties

3. Double-click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IPv4)

4. Set the option to "Use the following IP address"

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway: blank

5. Just to be safe, also set the options to "Use the following DNS Server Address"


(You may use your ISPs DNS entries also, these are just the OpenDNS ones that should work for everyone)

6. Under the "advanced" tab, you need to check "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection."

7. Right-click on your wireless connection, go to properties, click the "advanced" tab and check the same box to allow other users to share the connection.

8. On your Xbox360 go to the network configuration menu and enter the following settings:

IP address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:


Now you should be able to get on the internet with your Xbox as it will be using your PC/Laptop's wireless connection.

Cant get on to xbox live using wired connection

If you are connecting the system directly to your Broadband Modem than your ISP may have your regularly connected computer's MAC address logged in their system. Generally only Cable Modem companies do this, so to see if that is the problem do the following:

1. Locate your Cable Modem

2. Flip it upside down and locate the MAC address, it should look like this:

3. Write down the MAC address

4. Now turn on your Xbox360 and go to the network configuration menu.

5. find the part that says CLONE MAC ADDRESS and then put in the MAC address you wrote down.

6. after the settings have been entered back out to the main menu, and power off, then power back on your Xbox360, you should be able to get on line now.

I can play any game online fine, but when it comes to fifa i send my friend an invite he accepts then nothing happens it just comes up this game session is no longer active, or when i do get a game it says...

You need to either give your PS3 a static IP address and then put that IP in DMZ in your router, or you need to open up the ports it tells you in the Fifa 09 manual.


To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PS3 Console) 

Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal Ip address. This means that everytime your PS3 connects or "talks" to your router, the router will assign it a different internal IP address. These IP addresses typically run in series. So for example, if your PS3 is the second device communicating with your router, then it will be assigned an ip address of However, if you choose to use your PS3 without the computer being on, the assigned IP address your PS3 has will be As this is different, and obviously will change, it would be stupid setting a DMZ up on one of the above Ip addresses, unless your PS3 was the only device that would ALWAYS connect using that specific IP. 

To make sure that your PS3 is always assigned the same internal IP address by your router, you will need to go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 Cross bar menus. 

You will be presented with an option which primarily asks whether you are using a Wired or Wireless connection. Obviously, you will choose the option which refers to you. If choosing the Wireless option you will need to input the security details in use on your router *If you are not currently using wireless security, i strongly reccommend you do so ASAP* 

Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected. 

This will display a page where customisable IP Addresses are available to be selected. 

IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Personally, i use I use this because it is extremely unlikely my Router will ever automatically assign this IP Address to a device, as i will never have 99 other devices connected to the same system. 

Subnet Mask - Is always set to 

Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router. 
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to 
cmd [Hit Enter] 
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway". 

Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

After entering all of these IP Addresses, you will now click "Enter" or hit the "right" button on the D-Pad. This will take you to a screen which says "MTU" at the top. My setup has this as Automatic, solely because i haven't a clue what MTU actually means or does.This won't affect your ability to set up a DMZ. 

The next steps are very simple. You do not want to use a proxy server unless you connect to the internet using one, however i can be of no help there, and you should enable UPnP if your router supports it. 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PC) 

Now head over to your PC, and load up your internet browser. In the Address Bar, type the IP Address of your router (the one you found using the Command Prompt earlier) 

This will take you to your Router Configuration Page. 

Every router interface differs from an other, and depending on what router firmware update you last installed, router interfaces can differ, even on the same model routers. This means that you will need to search the router config page yourself. You are looking for any mention of "DMZ" or "DMZ Host" 

When you have found this, it will ask you generally to input the IP Address of your DMZ Host, which is just the static IP address you assigned to your PS3 earlier, my example was, so we'll stick with that. Then click "apply" or similar. 

You should then turn off everything running on your home network. PS3, PC, Router etc. This is solely to make sure that the changes are applied as soon as possible. 

This should fix all of the problems as listed earlier in this guide, and probably some other issues

PS3 and Internet connection using Ethernet - from a mac

Where did you obtain the IP address?

If you went into System Preferences and saw the PS3 there and copied the assigned IP address, then it should work.

Can the wii send spam emails from its ip address?

No this is not a function of the Wii.

If you are looking for a way to send spam from a different IP address you may be out of luck. All computers on your home network broadcast out from the same public IP. There are ways to change your public IP with certain internet providers. Your public IP comes from your internet providers system. It checks for the MAC address of the device connected to the modem to assign an IP address. If you go through the router settings you can find where the MAC address settings are and choose which MAC it will broadcast, it's own internal MAC or a MAC from 1 of the connected devices.

Wirelesss web access?

you have to acquire the MAC address from the game console and go to your routers MAC configuration and add that mac address. Since you have wireless, you need a secure connection so the mac address has to be set for all users. All non known mac addresses and IP's will be blocked and not able to connect to your PC

Looks like a mac address problem, follow these steps if you feel up to it, or hire someone to do it for you.


1. Locate the PS3 MAC address number: Settings - System Settings - System Information
2. Open the software controlling the rounter. This is usually done my typing the router's IP address on your browser. ie
3. Locate a tab for FILTERS
4. Select MAC filters.
5. Enter the PS3 MAC address from previous step as an allowable MAC address.
6. Save entry. At this point router will reset itself.
7. Go back and set up the wireless connection on PS3. Select all settings automatic or EASY as the case maybe.
