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

Do you have to have cable tv to have netflix?


No, you do not have to have Cable TV in order to get the Netflix service. However, in order to watch Netflix you basically need to have an internet connection preferable of decent speed. You will also need a supported device that will let you watch Netflix.

The internet speed will ultimately determine whether you get quality video output on the device you intended to watch Netflix.

You can watch Netflix on your computer or you can use a device (generally now called a media device) that will allow for you to watch Netflix on your TV.

The Netflix app comes on many different media devices, which you essentially plug to you TV and connect to your home Internet connection.

Newer TV have the Netflix app built in to them as well as Internet. These TVs are referred to as Smart TV.

Right of the top of my head are the following Netflix capable devices Xbox 360, Roku, Wii...

Here are a list of other supported devices on Netflix's Website:

Lagging on a xbox 360 with a 320gb hard drive


It is not only the memory to check when your xbox is lagging. You need to check if you are connected wirelessly for it might be interferrences issues. You need to connect via ethernet cable first to isolate wireless issue. Once connected via ethernet cable and still lagging you can check the bandwith issue. Make sure that when connected to your computer/tower, its only the xbox in use. Turn off any computer, laptop, any wireless device that might be using the internet.

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!

It says it cant connect to xbox live even though i have a ethernet cable hooked up to my lab top running to the back of my xbox 360.


Depending upon your Internet setup connecting your XBox cannot give you Internet access to XBox Live.
For a least complicated method, you need to connect the XBox to a DSL or cable modem that has Internet connection via your Internet Service Provider.

How is your laptop connected to the Internet?
This information would assist me to help you.

If other devices can connect once your son is off then it might not be a problem with a router. Try connecting the xbox VIA WI-FI. If the problem persits i would contact your ISP.

I have several wireless electronics like a wii, xbox, ipod touches and blue rays i was wondering what wireless router do i need to run most of these thing without slowing down my connection all the time


The connectivity speed of the router depends on the range of the device u are using.
Go for a router which supports more wireless range.
The internet speed depends on your internet connection if all the devices are in range.

Cant connect to internet using internet stick


The internet stick you have would be a USB device which is not supported by Xbox 360, you can connect to Xbox 360 wirelessly or through a wired connection

One way of connecting wireless internet is through the ethernet cable to a laptop paired with your wireless router, or you would have to buy a Wi-Fi adapter for Xbox 360 which retails around $90.

Since Xbox 360 does not have a software like a PC, it is unable to recognize the USB internet stick you have as a internet connection, it may probably end up showing it up just as a USB device on the system settings menu on the Xbox 360 dashboard

How do you hook up xbox 360 to cricket a600 broadban


Yes, but if you want to connect the X-box and computer directly you may need to get a crossover cable. Sorry, I can't say for sure on this as it depends on the network card in the PC.

You should have a box in the configuration dialog for the Cricket saying something like "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection". Be sure this box is checked.

When you connect the laptop to the router are you using a network cable?
When you connect two computers such as your laptop and the xbox using a network cable you need a crossover cable not a standard network cable.
If you use a network hub you can connect two or more computers together using the standard network cables.

How to set up for xbox live connection


You need to connect the cable to an internet modem or to a router. you dont conect the xbox to the computer.

The cable is suposed to have both ends exactly the same. the reason why you cant't fit it in your computer is becase you probably allready have a cable with internet connection going to the computer, so connect the cable going to the computer to the xbox or get a router an connect that cable to the router and then get two more cables to go to the computer and other one to the xbox
