If you are using the "XBOX" cable, take a look at the ends. You will see that the wiring sequence is different. On one it is, orange/white-orange-green/white-blue-blue/white-green and the other is green/white-green-gorange/white-blue-blue/white-gorange.

That is a crossover cable. Go to the computer store and get a straight through cable. I am unsure if original XBOX had DHCP capabilities. If it does... great. If not, you will have to give it an IP address/subnet mask/gateway/dns manually. It is easier to hook your PC and XBOX up to a router, copy all the settings from your PC network settings and give it an ip of like 192.168.0.200 or something high up. Only change the last set of number and keep the rest identical to whatever your PC gets from your router.

The "XBOX" crossover cable is used for XBOX to XBOX gaming.

How do i hook my xbox up to my computer to get on xbox live?


hi,

just to elaborate on zombies post.....
Zombie is correct in what she says...but in 'Laymans' terms.........
you dont need to hook up your xbox to ur computer to get 'On Live' .
The easiest way is a direct 'Ethernet' lead (plugged into the back of ur 360....(dont worry....u cant put it in the wrong slot....an ethernet lead will only fit an ethernet slot)) & the other end into an empty Ethernet slot on your broadband suppliers router (the little box they sent you which is plugged into ur fone line)....there are usually '4' ethernet slots on most routers ! once the ethernet lead is plugged in just follow on screen instructions (xbox) for 'signing' up to 'Xbox Live' :-)

hope this is a little easier to understand ??

p.s. Dont get ripped off buying an ethernet lead if u havnt got one long enuf ! dont let the shops tell you ur better off with 'Gold' plated ones !! its rubbish !! u dont need gold plated !
the usual 'bay' shop (u know who i mean??) have numerous suppliers....u dont want to be paying more than £5 for at least a 5 metre one !

p.p.s dont bother with the wireless adapters !! there pants !


good luck :-)

For some reason you can only have the component leads with optical cable, if you put hdmi cable in there is no connection for the opticle cable out.

You should have received the lead to plug into your TV you should also have a lead to plug into your PC monitor plus power lead and brick. The lead for the computer monitor would be the lead you need to play on an HDTV. Please rate if useful, thanks!
