can you tell me what type of router you are working with.
most routers have about 4 cat five cable slots where you can plug them into other computers. If you have a wireless router and you have a wireless adapter for the xbox that will work also.

another question are you working with the xbox360 and if so do you have an xbox live account?

another thing you might have to go into the setting of the router usally on the main computer to do this you will have to bring up the command prompt where it can be found at for windows 98/2000/xp/vista <start >all progams >accesses command prompt > type in ipconfig it will pop up with a default gateway and your ip you take the default gateway open your brosswer type it in. If you have not set up a password most routers have it as admin. from there i would need to know what kind of router you have ! hope that helps a little
let me know

Router or switch? I'm getting cable internet service in a couple days. The modem will only have one ethernet output but I have multiple PCs and xbox 360s in the house. My question is: Will I be able to...


Hello wetgrass 80,

Switches create a network. Routers connect networks. A router links computers to the Internet, so users can share the connection. A router acts as a dispatcher, choosing the best path for information to travel so it's received quickly.

So, you need a router. Be sure to buy one with wireless connection (wi-fi) so you can connect other gadgets too such as cellphones, psp, netbook, etc..

I hope this helped you.
You can rate my answer if you appreciate my help.
Thanks!

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

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 and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

Sounds like there is an issue with bandwidth on your internet connection. Either you have a lot of sisters using your bandwidth, your ADSL connection is on the slow side, or both. Your Xbox isn't getting the bandwidth it requires to operate smoothly.

There are ways to configure your router to allocate bandwidth to connected devices in proportions that you set. You could have 70% and they have 30%.

Also check that they're not watching streaming video or downloading stuff at the same time you play. Alternatively just hide their laptops. :)

Router communication with cable modem


If you change service providers, connection type and hardware, then all your previous connection settings will not work, and they'll have to all be reconfigured.

Have you been given a new modem/router (combo unit)?

Did you previously have a separate modem and a separate router?

Do you connect your xbox via WiFi?

Go back to basics now. If your computers connect fine, then connect the xbox using an ethernet cable and see if it works. Then try wireless.

I have a NetGear Wireless Router which wont connect to internet.


Verify that you can connect to the internet without the router by hooking the cable from the dsl modem to your computers NIC.

If you can connect to the internet that way the problem is with the router. press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to reset it to the factory settings. (this just makes it easy to determine the problem) if this corrects the problem you can setup your security again

How TO connect XBOX360 to Back of computer and be able to use both at the samethime. Have DSL internet


Why connect the XBOX to the computer? Can you connect it to another port on the DSL router or do you only have one port for internet connection? If so get a DSL router that will allow you to connect multiple network devices. The router will have to be configured like the current PC so that it can connect to teh internet. Then you can connect your XBOX to one of the router ports and teh PC to another port. Your PC ethernet internet connect will need to be changed so that it uses DHCP.

a second option:
You PC probably only has one ethernet port that you are using to connect to the DSL. You will need to get a second ethernet card for the PC to connect the XBOX. Not worth the trouble or $$$.
