You will need a cat5 or cross over cable, plug it into the pc and xbox, if you use vista then it is quite easy, goto the startbar and goto connections, you should now have at least 3 connections.
your connection to the xbox and if you have wireless your wirless connection or wired connection to the internet and a connection with just numbers 14... or somthing like that. Note that xp does not allow wireless and wired connections to be bridged, i dont know if they have changed this through updates, but last time i did this it would not let me. I cant remember the program that does allow you to do this on xp, but as i can remember it is quite hard to do.

You will need to bridge 2 connections, your xbox connection and you internet connection, to do this left click on one of the connections just to highlight it, press control(ctrl) key and hold down, click to highlight the other connection, you should now have 2 connections highlighted, now right click on 1 of them, in the drop down menu you will see a tab saying bridge connections, click on that and it does the rest. After it has finished bridging the connection you should have a new icon in the network connections window, it looks like a bridge. You may need to restart your computer to make the settings take effect.

Now try to connect to live on the xbox, you should be able to connect straight through the computer to internet connection, and also if using vista access your media.

You may have a problem with your NAT type after doing this. Usually it says you have a strict NAT type, you will need to forward ports on your router to enable you to connect properly, do a google search for which ports you need to open in order to remove the strict NAT, you also search on how to forward ports using google, all the information should be there. hope this helps. Post back if you need further assistants.

Can the console recieve live signal without added components


If you don't have an Ethernet cable connected from your XBOX to your router, or an XBOX 360 wireless adapter (purchased seperately) connected by WiFi to your wireless router, then no.

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.

I got a two day gold pass and a xbox 360 i also got tmobile broad band internet on my pc so how do i get started with xbox live without an adapter or do i need an adapter


Requires a Router/Switch
(2) ethernet cables

Using your PC as the main Internet Provider, connect one cable from the PC's ethernet jack to the WAN jack/port of a router. Next hook up your XBox to one of the wired 1-4 jacks/ports on the same router with the other ethernet cable.

Why isnt my xbox connecting? i plugged the cble into the rouder and then put the other cable into the xbox and its not letting me connect.


To make a router connection to Xbox Live:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
  8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.

It may have trouble recieving the ip addrees from the router, but not sure what switch you are using if you have a router you should connect directly unless its a wireless switch.
