I had the same problem, you may have to port it. I did mine years ago when I got my console... Best thing to do is find porting instructions. I forget where I got mine. But I'll have a look

Wont down load up dates

Slow internet connection can be caused by just about anything, however, try this; Unplug your modem (From the mains), wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in. Then, do the same thing to your router. Is the internet slow on your computer, or any other devices on your network?

1. Go toXBOX 360 dashboard.2. Go to System Settings then go to memory.3. After going to the Memory you should see the word HARD DRIVE, Do not click it, just press the "y" button from your controller.4. Try and download update again.5. If this doesnt work, plug your console directly to your modem/router. Most of the time the issue is interferences so it will be better if you will directly connect the console to your modem.6. You can also check it with XBOX support to check if there are account related issues that affects the update for everytime you connect to XBOX server it checks your account as well.
Thanks for choosing

Just got xbox live using the old xbox(not xbox 360)we cannot figure out how to use it - what gets hooked up to the laptop, modem, console , etc. looking for step by step instructions to set it up April

I see you did not mention that you have a router. You will need a router to connect the laptop and XBOX at the same time. If you just want to connect the XBOX straight to the modem you can follow the instructions below.

If you are using a cable modem you just have to plug it in the modem then turn it off and on.
if you are using DSL then you have to setup the XBOX to connect via PPPoE that you can do via the network settings then put in your username and password

How to setup xbox live

Hello there

No problem, in just a few steps you too will be online and ready to go.

Ethernet Cable

With your Xbox 360 turned off unplug the ethernet cable from the back of your Xbox.

Xbox 360 Power Cord

Next unplug the Xbox 360 power cord from the back of the Xbox 360.

Unplug ethernet cable and power cord from the modem. Wait for about 1 minute and then plug ethernet cable back into the modem.

Now you need to plug other end of the ethernet cable into the back of the Xbox 360.

Plug the modem power cord back into your modem , wait for lights to light up on your modem (this can take up to a minute).

The last step is to plug the Xbox power cord into the back of the Xbox, turn it on and you are ready to go.

your best bet would to be get a wireless adapter for the 360 and use it that way. then you won't have to pair it up with your laptop. i believe you lose half connection speed doing it that way.

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox

Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

Xbox wont find ip address

It may be that the modem/router has to be reset everytime you change devices.

This is because the modem only recognises the devices that are first attatched to it. It will connect t the modem, but it will not get internet until you reset it.

I have the same problem with mine, can be a nuisance but it's the only way it will work.

Hope this helps,

Ps, you should have got a PS3.... =)

Xbox elite ip adress failure

From the question above I think you are saying that when you unplug your Ethernet cable from your Internet connection out of your E-BOX and try to use it in your laptop, it doesn't work. If this is correct, then it's probably that your ISP only allows for 1x active address to be used at any one time. To overcome the problem you'll need to also power recycle your Internet modem to clear out the MAC address of the X-BOX once you've unplugged it and before you make the laptop connection. You would have to do this each time you wanted to swap between the devices.
Alternatively, get yourself a Router to sit in between the Modem and end devices and then have an additional permanent cable / 2nd physical port to use.

Xbox 360 setup

it way be that your modem and/or router does not recognize the ethernet cord. the contacts on either the cord or port might be fried. try plugging the xbox cord into the laptop port if the laptop is hooked up by cord or try using a wireless adapter for your xbox if the wireless seems to work fine with your laptop.
