Hey supcom296,

If you are looking to connect two XBox consoles together for offline play, the method can vary depending on the type of XBox you own.

For the original XBox, there should be two supported methods. The first allows you to directly connect two XBox consoles together using a "system link" or Cat 5 Ethernet crossover cable, while the second is to connect up to four XBox consoles using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub.

With the XBox 360, there should be three methods available. The first is to directly connect the two consoles using a traditional Ethernet cable (RJ45), the second allows up to 16 different XBox 360's to connect by using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub, while the third uses either a wireless router or the XBox's built-in Ad-Hoc networking tools to make a connection.

If you are unsure how to set up the consoles using any of these methods, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions in the owner's manual for your XBox, or by simply visiting the support section of Microsoft's homepage.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Running two xbox live 360


Hello there.

A router shares your internet connection with local computers and devices on your local area network. Microsoft's xbox live requires a connection to your IP address on a certain port. This will be a problem when using 2 xboxes so what you would need to do is contact your Internet Service Provider, explain that you are using a router and require an additional Static IP Address.

Once they provide you the details for this, you can manually set up one of the xboxes with the static details your isp has given you.

This should stop the 2 xbox conflicting over connecting to the internet, as they will be running on seperate ip addresses.

Hope this helps.

I have a router with multipul outlets with 2 computers and xboxs 360 live ..can i have 2 xbox 360 live signed up to work at the same time..?


Yes you can run two Xboxes on LIVE at the same time, provided you have a separate LIVE account for each console, and different IP addresses for each Xbox. Assign static IP addresses for your xboxes from within the router's setup page.

I hope that helps.

Two xboxes cannot connect to each other's games.


i've had this problem and if possible you may need to change the mac address in wireless settings on one. they cannot use the same one. It could be a game that doesn't allow two connections on one router also. I've ran into that problem too!

Hi lucicity!

If I'm understanding you correctly, you are having severe lag during your online matches?

If that is the case, first I would like you to visit:

www.testmy.net

There is a connection test that will rate your internet performance.

Also, are you using wireless? While wireless can make life easier, you have to bear in mind the placement of you wireless router and any devices using it (like your 360). That makes a HUGE difference.

Also, have you installed a firewall lately? It may be blocking certain ports that need to be open in order for Live to function properly. Here is a link to the ports that need to be open:

If you list what type of router/connection you have, I will try to assist you farther.

If this solution helped you, please, give me good feedback. Thanks!
