Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Ethernet port Ok so the other night why i was sleeping i had a power surge and it messed somethings up. It some how messed up my router so i had to go out and get a new one and once i did that i came home and hooked it up and tried to get on LIVE. But it says that i have no network adapter hooked up. So i tried some other ethernet cables thinking that maybe the surge messed it up. But that didnt work. The only thing that is weird is that there is no error codes and the usb port still works. Oh yeah i know about getting a wireless adapter but i dont want to spend the money on getting a new router and adapter. And im not afraid to open the 360 i already had to for an unreadable disk problem. Sorry for the wall of text. : )

Your network card may be fried.
if its still in warranty, send it to sony, otherwise you could remove the old network card (in the xbox) and replace it.

If your router works wirelessly but the ethernet ports do not work try using a new ethernet cord. If it still does not work try using another device with the old and new cord. If that still does not work try doing a hard rest on your router and setting it back up. if that doesnt work you may have taken a power surge and they are dead.

I can't connect my lap top or any device to the router by cable only wireless can connect it seems that the 4 ports doesn't work


I would try another ethernet cable, it is very rare that all 4 wired ports are dead unless it was damaged in a power surge.

1
Choose your equipment wisely. There are many types of wireless routers, and they are not all created equal. Some of the lower end wireless routers are very basic, and will limit your home network to speed of 56 megabits per second (Mbps.) This is really not a very fast speed. If your access points will be very far apart, consider getting a router with ultra-range abilities, or a dual-band router. Also, while you're at the store, be sure to pick up one wireless access point for each computer you intend to connect to your network.

2
Remove your DSL or cable modem from the power supply.

3
Remove the Ethernet cable which connects your DSL or cable modem to your computer from the computer, but leave it plugged into the back of your modem. This cable looks something like a phone cord on the ends, but with much larger connectors and a larger, round cable. Do not remove the phone cord from the modem which is plugged into the telephone jack on your wall.

4
Connect the loose end of the Ethernet cable to the internet port on the back of your router. This port should be clearly marked, and will probably be a different color than the other ports.

5
Reconnect your modem to the power source. To protect it, plug it into the same surge protector which guards your computer.

6
Plug the Ethernet cable which came with your router into the Ethernet connector on the network card on the back of your computer. Then plug the other end into one of the Ethernet network ports on the back of the router.

7
Plug the router's power cord into the power supply. This device should also be protected by a surge protector. If you run out of plugs, it is well worth ten or twenty dollars to invest in a second surge protector.

8
Check the lights on the front or top of your router. The power light should be on, as well as the internet light, the wireless light, the security light, and a light for one of your Ethernet network connections. Check to see if any lights are off, flashing, or red or amber in color. This will indicate that the router is having a problem. If any lights are not on as they should be, check your cable connections to ensure that they are securely connected. Repeat the setup steps if necessary.

9
Install the software provided by your wireless router's manufacturer.
This is it you are done
Thanks .

The CISCO light is on and the computer has an internet connection, but cannot find the internet. Charter has told me it's a problem with the computer. Additionally, the number light that used to be...


If the number light isn't on anymore, there's something wrong with the physical connection between the PC and the router. About all you can do in this instance is to start "swapping things out".

Try these things in order. They go from easiest to more difficult.

1.) Move the ethernet cable to another "number" port on the Linksys router. Does the corresponding "number" light come on? If so, you had a bad ethernet transceiver on that port. (Note: this is *highly* unlikely, but it's worth a shot.

2.) If #1 doesn't work, try using another ethernet cable...that's the cable that runs from the computer to the "number" port on the router. If the "number" light on the router comes on after doing this, trash the old cable.

3.) If #2 doesn't work, Plug another PC into another "number port" on the router. It's easiest if you know somebody with a laptop. If the 2nd PC lights up the router's "number light", there *is* indeed a problem with your PC...namely the ethernet port. If the 2nd PC *doesn't* light up the number port on the router, your router is probably dead. Note: If you're up to it, you can take note of which cable goes where, completely disconnect the router, and take the router to the PC you want to hook it up to. If you do this, all you need to do is hook up the power supply and the PC's ethernet cable to the number port. You don't have to connect the non-number port.

If there's a problem with your computers ethernet port, just replace the card. I personally like the old Intel E100B's or 3Com 3C509's because you don't have to mess with drivers....just put it in a slot, and any Windows version 98 or or later will automatically load the drivers. If you buy a new card, you'll probably have to load drivers. Do the same thing if the ethernet jack is on-board. The system will work fine as long as only the new card is plugged into the network.

Hope this helps.....

No connection after lightning and thunder


There's ALWAYS the chance of damage.

If you have reset both the router and the cable modem and it still doesn't work, bypass the router and try connecting the system directly to the Cable/DSL modem. If your computer works in that situation the router has been affected, double check your connections between modem & router AND between router and computer.

If you still cannot connect, call your internet provider and inquire re: system status in your area. If all is good ask them if they can 'see' your modem. They will check their equipment to see if your modem is connected and communicating with their system. If they don't find it the modem is suspect.

If they can see the modem but you are still unable to connect to the internet via the router/switch, then the router/switch is the culprit.

Of course this all assumes everthing is OK with your computer. Otherwise this becomes a much larger troubleshooting issue. But let's not go there yet.

BIG TIP: Invest in a lightweight UPS or a line conditioner, particularly one that will protect your inbound Internet connection (coax or phone line) as well as the Ethernet port protection you need. In the end it's a LOT cheaper than replacing lightning damaged hardware.

Surge Protectors are of limited value because a majority (80% or more) of all power related electronic issues, especially regarding solid state circuitry, is due to BROWNOUTS, not surges. Something the manufacturers of surge suppression strips & related hardware are reluctant to admit, but that's why they can reliably afford to insure their surge protectors for ridiculous sums.

Apply this same principle to home entertainment systems, tv's (especially LCD & Plasma), game consoles, and any other valuable home electronics.

A router is basically a mini-computer that splits up one internet connections to 4 (or whatever # of ports you have).

Basic Connections to a router:
A Router requires a internet connections, so your broadband modem must connect to the WAN port (theres only one) of the router DIRECTLY. Then Ethernet cables go from the router to the computers on the LAN ports. Don't do something weird like connecting your internet to your computer then your computer to the routers WAN port, it'll most likely mess up.

Once you have connected your router like this, it should work.

If your modem only has a usb port, I have no idea how to make that work out. Sorry. Try getting a new modem from your ISP, or check if your modem does have a ethernet port, if it does just connnect that to the routers wan port.

Also computers should not interconnect with each other with use of a router. Thats what the router is for. Everything gets connected and split up at the router, nothing connects to anything else but the router, basically.

Ok to start the yellow ethernet port should be connected straight to the Linksys router in the ethernet in port. Then you connect the cmputer to one of the other the 4 ports on the back of the wireless router. wala you shouldn't have any more trouble after that.

Linksys Router and Modem


Get one router working first with the modem following the standard instructions. If you've been messing with the router settings, use the Reset procedure described in the manual.

When your computer is able to access the internet, you've got the first router working.

I assume you want the second router to make more ethernet ports available.

Disconnect the computer from the first router, and plug it into the second. DONT CONNECT IT TO THE MODEM.

Again, reset it to the factory defaults. Open your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 and login to the router. Find the DHCP server setting, and disable DHCP.

Get another ethernet cable and connect it to one of the ethernet ports on the first router, and the other end to an ethernet port on the second router. DONT USE THE WAN PORT.
Unplug each router, then replug them.

You should now be able to use any of the ethernet ports on either router (reboot your PC after doing the above).

Need to connect router to deck top.comp.


This might work for you. Now to go in and configure the router thats something totally different.
To physically install the router
Step 1: Connect the power adapter Connect the power adapter to the router and plug it into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch.
Step 2: Connect the router to the computer Disconnect the ethernet cable that is connecting the broadband modem to the network adapter in the computer. Connect the ethernet adapter in the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Step 3: Connect the router to the modem Connect the ethernet port on your broadband modem to the WAN port on the router.
Step 4: Check link lights and connections
Check the front of the router to make sure the Power, WAN and LAN1 lights are on.
