I cant set up xbox live

Connect to the Internet The first step is to connect your Xbox 360 console to your Internet connection. Here's how:

  1. Plug one end of a network cable into a port on your router or gateway. You might need a long network cable, depending upon on the location of your router or modem.

    Note If you do not have a router, you can plug the network cable directly into your modem.
  2. Plug the other end of the network cable into the back of your console.
Verify your setup Your setup should look similar to one of the following:

Router connection
connect_router_300px.gif Your Xbox 360 console and computer are both connected to a router. The router is connected to a modem, which is connected to a cable wall jack.
Modem connection
modemsetup_300px.gif Your Xbox 360 console is connected to a modem, which is connected to a cable wall jack.

There is no internet connection to the laptop. The arris modem gives internet acess to the PC computer, though. The manual for the Airlink 101 router says to connect the router and MODEM to each other by a...

What you're missing is that ALL the PCs will be connecting THROUGH the router to the Modem. Unplug the PC network Cable from the modem, then plug a network cable from the router's INTERNET port into the modem (where you removed the PC's network cable). Now, plug the PC's network cable into one of the ports on the router (usually 4 or more, marked 1,2,3,4. Think of a Router as a "splitter". It connects to the Modem, then several devices connect to the Router, some of them by wire and some by Wi-Fi. So your desktop PC is connected by wire to the router and your laptop PC is probably connected by Wi-Fi (wire is an option, as well). The Router sorts out all those signals and communicates with the Modem. Sound reasonable?

I'm having trouble connecting my emachine to a cable modem.

Turn off the computer before you begin making connections. Make sure the cable modem is up and running with your service before you attempt to make the computer connection.

  • 2 Connect the coaxial cable from the wall outlet into the back of the cable modem where it is marked "Cable" and has the male coaxial connection. Use an extension coaxial cable if necessary to reach the modem.
  • 3 Connect the CAT 5 networking cable from the cable modem where it is marked "PC" (or something similar) and connect the other end into the back of your computer where the networking card is. These connections are RJ-45 connections that look like oversized telephone jacks. If you also have telephone service through your cable provider, you will want to connect the telephone line into the port on the back of the cable modem marked "Telephone."
  • 4 Connect the power cord into the back of the cable modem and plug it into a power strip with power surge protection. The modem should power on by itself once it is plugged in. It will cycle through a power on self test and then make the connection to your cable Internet provider. Once the lights indicating power and cable are green, you are ready for Step 5. It could take several minutes for the modem to connect to your service provider.
  • 5 Turn on the computer and test out your Internet connection. Should your computer still have a problem connecting to the web you may need to reset your cable modem. You will find a small recessed button the size of the head of a ballpoint pen either on the back or front of the modem. This button will be marked "Reset." Pushing it once will allow the modem to reboot and reset all its connections. Turn off the computer before resetting the modem to allow the computer to flush all the networking connections out of its memory as well.

  • If the power goes out and your connection is not restored when it comes back on, always reboot the devices in this order: cable modem first, computer second. Keep the cable modem where it can get proper ventilation. Call your cable Internet provider if you get frequent interruptions to your cable Internet service and rebooting the modem does not solve the problem.

    Cable modum not detecting PC activity????

    Unplug the power from your cable modem. Turn off your computer. Make sure there is a network or usb cable connected to the computer from your cable modem and they are connected properly at both ends (if usb use the back ports on the computer).

    Plug the power back into the cable modem and wait 1 minute. Turn on your computer. Check connectivity by trying the Internet.

    If you still do not have connectivity, try these things in this order:

    1. Update the drivers for your network card through your computer/motherboards manufactuar website.
    2. Replace the network or usb cable and try again.
    3. Contact your cable provider to make sure they can see your cable modem on the network.

    If you need to connect via PPPOE, usually this only applies to some DSL clients. It is reccomended to use the install disk that came with your modem so you can set up your username and password correctly to connect. If you need additional information on this, contact your ISP for configurations.

    Have fun.

    The only drivers you need are for the network adapter.
    If they are there, you're ready to get online. But--if you installed everything and didn't reset your modem, then it won't work.
    Unplug the modem. Remove its backup battery. Replace the battery and plug it in and restart the computer and then to into my network places and choose the option to connect to the internet.

    Please dont connect a cable modem to an internal modem.

    Be sure that you have the cables connected to the correct ports on the back of the router. The modem should be connected to the port designated for uploading. I am not sure if you are saying that you have a wireless pc that is able to connect to the internet. If this is true then you already know that the cable to the modem is correct. If you have the cables connected correctly then you should try another cable to connect to your pc to be sure it is not the cable that is connected to your pc that is bad. If this does not help then it could be your network card in your pc. You can get a wireless network adapter for your pc to plug into your usb port if the network card is bad.

    the cable modem lead should plug into the internet socket, then a lead rj45 should come from any of the other 4 ports to your lan network card in the back of your pc and thats it, all the settings will be the same as before.
