I do not know what Router you are talking about since you did not specify, but most routers are compatible with the wireless and ethernet function that the Xbox supplies.
Also, (and I have had this problem recently) having no internet connection on your desktop should not be affected if you are using the router to connect the Xbox, but if you are sharing the internet connection the wireless network will not function properly and shut down.

Netgear RP114 Stopped connection with Xbox Live.

You say "it does connect to other computers on my network (Media Streaming) through the router" but it's not connecting to "Xbox Live"? If so, it sounds like a problem with your Xbox Live subscription.

Recheck your settings on the xbox.

If using wifi on the xbox, you'll have to setup a new connection to the new router.

If the xbox is wired via cable to the router, you may need to add a router password or other settings .

Can't connect with network

if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.

by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22

glad i could help!!! :3

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

Hooking up xbox live

Well, it's very possible if you are using a wireless router that your connection may not be strong enough. XBOX Live and most online gaming requires a steady. strong, high bandwith connection. A weak singnal, OR someone else using up the bandwith (i.e. someone downloading music on another computer connected to your router) can cause the problem.
If you're using a wireless connection, try moving the router and wireless game adapter closer to each other.
If you're using a hardwire connection from one of the routers outgong ports then make sure other's aren't on the internet (Or at least aren't using alot of bandwith) while XBOX Live is being used.
Please remember also that if you have a wireless network and you haven't implimented wireless secruity (i.e. WEP or WPA encryption) then your network is "Open" and anyone within range can connect and use up your bandwith,

Internet & xbox live sametime Netgear 8-port 10-base-t Ethernet Hub en108

Does the xbox work when connected directly to the internet (not through the hub)? If so, there may be some kind of conflict related to sharing your internet connection between the PC and xbox, and I'd reccommend getting a router instead of a hub.
