In order to connect to Xbox Live with a Wireless Modem and Router, you will need a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter. You can get a Xbox Wireless Adapter cheap on eBay, or you can buy it Microsoft at Gamestop. http://www.gamestop.com/browse?nav=16k-Xbox+360+Wireless+Adapter
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To find your MTU Settings, follow these steps.
1. Click on 'Start'
2. Click on 'Run...'
3. In the bar, type CMD, and hit enter.
4. A black box should appear. Type "ipconfig" without quotation marks in the field.
5. Your IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway codes should pop up.
6 Go to your internet browser and type you IP Address into the URL box.
7. You should find MTU settings, and you can set them to your desire.

How do u connect an an xbox 360 to xbox live


You need either a blue Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox to an internet outlet or a wireless router. If you use the wireless router, hook it up to your computer so it broadcasts a signal, then, depending on what Xbox you have, if its the new 360 slim you won't need a wireless adapter, you search for the signal, then connect it. If you don't have the 360 slim, then you need to buy a wireless adapter and it plugs into the back of the Xbox.

How to connect to xbox live


Get a cat5e or cat6e, connect the 360 to a router with that. Then, connect the router to your DSL or cable modem with another cat5e or cat6e cable unless your modem has a router built into it, then connect it directly to the modem. Then play!

Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to xbox Live.

    Have one ethernet for computer want to use xbox live so i take out the ethernet from computer and put it in xbox unplug wait plug back in turn still will not connect red x for modem


    You should get a cable/dsl router/switch or wireless cable/dsl router/switch and put it between your Modem and network nodes (IE your computer and xbox 360)

    So it is modem to router wan port

    Xbox 360 to router lan port
    Computer to router lan port

    You can purchase one cheaply at best buy
    look at this link

    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.

    Hello taz1028,

    In order for you to be able to log into Xbox Live, you will need to have DSL or Broad Band internet connect in your home. Once you have that, you will be able to connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Modem that the internet provider gives you. If you wish to able to connect both the Xbox and your notebook to the modem you will then need a router or a wireless router. So, if you do not have DSL or Broad Band Internet service in your home, you will not be able to log into Xbox Live.

    Sincerely,

    Agent Xiong

    Ip address failed


    If you are behind a router.. try hooking it up directly to your cable modem or DSL modem. If that fixes the problem then you need to open ports on the router to allow the connect to get routed to your xbox.
