SOURCE: Cant find IP address

You need to make sure that DHCP is turned on for the router and the the Xbox is set to automaticallly get network settings. If not, then you will need to manually configure the adress and settings. If this is the case, please post back the address of the router and all other devices on your network and we can help you make a suitable choice and get it configured.

A switch will allow you to see multiple computers and use multiple connections at any one time.

It will also allow you to PING other computers connected to that switch.

Ensure it a powered swictch and that the power is ON.

Double check that you do not have any IP conflicts and that both computers are in the same domain or workgroup.

Also check that the subnet is the same

My home network consists of xboxes, media centres, servers, laptops, other computers so I can confirm my information to you as correct.

Could be a few different problems. One is your internet connection speed. If its below 5Ms I would say you are blowing out your bandwidth and it your ISP can't keep up, thus causing a slow connection or even some time-outs. If you are at or above 5M, check what ports you have your connections in. Some hubs are set specifically to take the ISP in a certain port and have it looped through another port. I'd start there.

Hi, I would recommend downloading the latest firmware for this device and then se if your "crashing" goes away.
If you plug directly into the cox modem do you have problems?
If that doesn't work I would replace the Cat 5e network cable from the switch to the cox modem.
If that doesn't work replace the coax cable from the cox modem.
If you continue to have issues replace the switch.

How do i connect two computers so they both have the same ip address i have a linksys 5-port workgroup switch will that work ? also i had hooked it up but only one of my computers had internet


They cannot have the same IP address due to the mechanics of DHCP. Buying a cheap 50$ router (not switch) will fix your problem as your internet service provider will see that device as a single unit that it will assign an IP and then the router will give out internal ip addresses so that they can get online. The switch does not have this functionality.

You have a 5-port router. The 5th port can be used either as an "uplink" port (with a cross-over Ethernet cable) or as a "data" port (with a straight-though Ethernet cable).

You've not provided enough details to trouble-shoot the "staying online" problem, i.e., IP-addresses of each of the connected computers/printers, whether you're using CAT3 or CAT5 or CAT5E cables, whether you've tried different Ethernet cables, and whether the router is connected into a UPS that provides "smooth" power.

Hello Friend
You could definately use Network Switch-10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w to Connect to Network Router or Modem using Uplink Port at back Panel of 10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w Switch.
Simply Connect Modem cable to Uplink Port of Switch and connect computers to other 2 ports of switch. Allow computers to get Automatic ip addresses..if computers still not getting ip addresses auto--contact cable company and config your cable modem to use NAT or enable NAT--

Linksys switch question


You certainly can. In a real network you have one router and x amount of switches or hubs. Because whats going to happen is your equipment will automatically will ask the switch which will bounce to the router and your router will issue the address to that device.

Can't get two computes to run internet at the same time


Hi,
If you login to your router and make sure DCHP is enabled, and then go to Services (services.msc) on your computers and make sure that the DCHP Client is running, it'll automatically assign IP addresses for your computers and they'll both connect okay.

Hope this helps

Xbox 360 to Linksys wireless modem...


OK I think the easiest way to connect the xbox to the linksys, is if you configure your XBOX to have a static IP address, because the xbox will not have to pick an IP address every time you connect to the internet using the Linksys router and will not have conflicts with other PCs on your house, if you have any. What the linksys does is to convert your Public IP addres into a Private IP address, so example if your ISP gave you an IP address of: 209.235.205.30 that is your IP address for you, then the Linksys converts that number (NAT) into a private IP address so it can be share with many computer inside your house using a single Public IP address. The Linksys always transform it into 192.168.1.?=any number between 1-256 thats the defaults IP address from the manufacturer but you can change it if you want. Ok enough info about NAT or IP jeje.

Where going to use the default IP addres for an easier setup.

First: On your XBOX 360 dashboard go to SYSTEM, then Network Settings, then Edit Settings, then choose the option manual, here put the IP address= 192.168.1.33 (if 33 doesn't work use another numer like 20 or 45 just pick a number between 2 and 250) ; Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 ; Gateway = 192.168.1.1; DNS options put Automatic. And see if it connects. If it doesn't work just post it here, any problem that you have.
