I have to assume that you are hooking it up to a router, most Linksys and Netgear routers have DHCP on by default so you should allow the XBOX to accept a DHCP assigned IP address. If not then you'll need to figure out if your router is using a private IP address scheme of either 192.168.0.X or 192.168.15.x - if the xbox is your only device on the ethernet network besides the router then you could use 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.15.2 for the xbox, depending, again, on the scheme in use by your router. The router should be .1 by default. Hope that helps.

I dont know how to set up my xbox live with an eathernet cable can you help?


Hi there

Turn off the Xbox 360 by pressing the power button on the front of the console. Afterward, shut off your modem by unplugging its power cord.
  • 2 Insert one end of the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port located at the back of your Xbox 360 console. After that, insert the other end of the cable into your modem.
  • 3 Replug the power cord into your modem to turn it back on. Once it is active, press the power button on your Xbox 360 to turn it on.
  • 4 Navigate to "My Xbox" then "System Settings." Afterwards, select "Network Settings" then "Test Xbox LIVE Connection." You will be notified on-screen if the connection is successful.

    How to set up Xbox LIVE for beginners.


    First of all, you need either a valid credit card, or a prepaid Xbox LIVE card.

    Alright, now you need high speed internet that uses an Ethernet cord to bridge your connection. Plug into the back of your console. (There is a gray Ethernet cord supplied with most Xbox's.)

    Plug it into where the "Ethernet cable" arrow is pointing, the bottom port. The top one is an USB port.

    Now, go to your dashboard and go to your setting. (All the way to the right on your main dashboard channel) Run a connection test to verify that you have a connection to Xbox LIVE. If everything good, then let's move on.

    Press the center guide button on your controller and choose "Join Xbox LIVE". Have your valid credit card and/or your prepaid Xbox LIVE card ready. Put in all of your personal details. Once you have all of your personal details and preferences filled out, then you're done!

    !!!IMPORTANT!!! IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR CHILD OR WHOEVER IS USING THIS TO CHARGE A LOT OF MONEY TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BUYING MICROSOFT POINTS, WHICH IS MICROSOFT CURRENCY ON THE XBOX FOR THE MARKETPLACE, THEN DON'T INSERT YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER, JUST USE A PREPAID CARD!

    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.
