First you will need a router, Second, you can either run a cable from the router to the XBOX or you can get the XBOX wireless adapter, and the adapter should detect the router almost as soon as you plug it in to the XBOX, and voila! your connected!!

My router was hit by lighting. I replaced the router. The Xbox works fine, but I can longer play online. I replaced ther cable also. I think lighting may have damage the ethernet connection on the xbox


Lighting may have damaged the ethernet connection on the xbox. Take can connect your computer to the same lan port connection that you are connecting the xbox to and see if you can get on line. If so you may be able to save the xbox if you go wireless and install the wireless adaptor.

You don't need it, but you probably want it if you have an xbox adapter with a digital/optical connection. They are pretty inexpensive particularly if purchased online. Here is an example:

Router to connect or sub the speedstream 5100


Option 1 (easy)
you could buy a switch or router and put in line with your modem.
you will have to set up appropriate networking on the xbox
DSL --> MODEM --> SWITCH <-- PC
^---- XBOX

Option 2 (harder)
you could get a wired/wireless AP (Access Point) for your PC and run ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) through Windows. connect the XBOX through your PC

Trying to connect to xbox live,have full broadband signal on my xbox but my xbox wont download an update to get on line, the message says can't download the update.please test your connection in...


If you have a cd burner on your computer you can follow this link
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemuse/xbox360/console/systemupdates.htm and it gives you full instructions on how to burn the disk and update your xbox. If that does not help with connecting try going to the system tab of your dashboard and run the initial setup. Dont worry you wont lose all your downloads and profiles, it just changes all settings back to the default.

Cant connect online


The way that i found to connect was to use a router, and connect it through that. it sets everything up itself.

Xbox to compter


Path #1:

if you want to play online, with other people i am assuming? then what you would want is xbox live. you do have to setup a stable internet connection in order to connect to the internet*. and also you do have to pay a membership fee in order to stay in xbox live.

* and if you want to connect xbox live, you need a cable or dsl connection, either you need an ethernet cable or a pre-tuned wireless usb that is made only for the xbox 360. and also, you would need a cable/dsl company that is accepted by xbox live. and then go to the xbox 360 dashboard, then, click "join membership",

Path #2:

setup an ethernet connection either directly, or with a router/hub, then go the system settings, and click, "computers" and then click connect. but this path way is only to create a connection to the computer.

Xbox live


If you go to your computer hold down the windows key and hit the and hit the R key at the same time.

This will bring up a black window, type in ipconfig/all,this will give you lots of details about your network setup, what we are looking for is the DNS ip's, they should be there under DNS Servers, use the addresses for your DNS servers.
