Bad xbox 360 connection


You have two options to improve connectivity:

1) Move your XBox closer to the router. If you are connecting wirelessly, move your XBox as close as possible to your router. The farther away they are, the slower your connection speed.

2) Purchase an ethernet cable and plug it in. An ethernet cable can connect to your router and be plugged into the back of your XBox. This is the best way to utilize as much juice as possible from your router and get you the connection speeds you need to play online. Ethernet cables run about $20 depending on the length and quality, but its a great investment if you are doing a lot of online gaming.

Hope that helps!

Your wireless router may not be compatible with the DSi. You can check here to see if your router is on the list of compatible routers.

Cant connect ps3 to labtop and get connection


Its best to connect your ps3 to an actual modem or router. Going through a labtop I heard is possible, but very complicated.

Ps3 help


the ps3 has a built in wireless modem. if you do not have a router, you might not be able to connect your ps3 and laptop at the same time.

turn everything off.

now in this order, turn on your ps3 and connect to your wireless verizon modem after it comes back on. do not turn your laptop on, since your modem probably will not give out two dynamic addresses. does the ps3 work now?

Xbox 360


For xbox live you dont need to connect it to the laptop.

If you have a router you can go wireless if you have the xbox adaptor or you can use a ethernet cable fromt he router to the xbox, which is a faster connection.

If you want to connect to your laptop to play music ETC go to www.xbox.com/pcsetup to download the media centre extender, this will then connect the laptop to the xbox.

Hope this helps

The PS3 has built in network capabilities, WIFI (wireless), for which you need a wireless router, or wired, where you need an ethernet cable and a router OR just a modem if you don't want anything else connected to the internet at the same time.

well if you have wireless in your house hold you can or have to get the xbox 360 wireless which cost 100.00 at wal-mart. if you have a router that you can hook up a lan ethernet jack from the router to the back of the 360 that is your better bet. you wont have to worry about getting disconnected or anything like that.

i would sueest buying a 100 foot eithernet cable. this dont run cheap. at staples you looking at 40.00 or so, you can get one on ebay for abour 15 and that cover shipping.

with the 100foot you dont have to worry about were you have to put your 360.
