If you previously used the desktop to access the net using a modem, open up internet explorer, then click tools,then connection tab, then tick never dial a connection.

close IE then open it up again and it should connect

How do i get online with my xbox 360?


You will need to purchase a xbox live silver or gold credit. You will also need to connect your xbox to a router or switch that has access to the Internet. If you do not have a router/switch near by your xbox you can purchase a wireless gaming adapter to connect your xbox wirelessly to your wireless router.

Im trying to get online on my xbox but its telling me i need to turn off my mac filter how do i do that


To turn off your mac filter a quick solution is to reset your router. Gain access to your router which provides the internet for your xbox (the box that provides wireless internet). On the back there should be a button that allows you to reset your router.
(It is usually recessed and in a very small hole, so look carefully)
Press it for 10-20 seconds, this should reset your router, and the mac filter should be turned off.
Hope this helps! Best of luck.

How to hook up laptop and xbox so u can use wireless conection for xbox live


When I tried to hook up my XBox to my desktop, I brought the "Linksys" G series wireless router. I like to shop at Best Buy, I find their sales reps knowalgeable. I not sure if the letter of the series really matters, but the security settings do. The newest securtiy settings are WEP, the older are 128 bit encryption. Find out what security setting that your XBox uses, (Read your users manual on how to do this or go to XBox.com and click on support) When you set up the wireless router connection, make sure the default value matches the XBox. After you're done, the 128 Bit encryption will give you a 24 character long code (I'm not sure about WEP) that you will have to put in manually with the controller on your XBox.

If you have access to the internet you can go to XBox. com, support, troubleshooting, How to connect to XBox Live. I hope this helps.

How to connect xbox 360 to the internet with laptop


I'm not sure if you can connect an Xbox 360 to the internet with a lap top. What I would do, is get a router (guessing that you already have one). But if you don't, it's basically a splitter for Ethernet cords. You plug the router into the Modem (the box that makes the internet), buy an Ethernet cord, plug it from the router to your Xbox and you should have internet. Or, you can get a wireless router, and get a network adapter for your Xbox to get internet wireless. But I don't think you can just get internet from your laptop.

Have laptop with internet but want to share it with xboxs


Yes, simply set up laptop as a mini server (Wireless) at the other end of the house (Where the Xboxes are) and ensure it has the WEP key installed when asked to access the router / internet. Buy a router adapter for each Xbox 360 that connects to them in the RJ45 slot and connect thru the laptop agian using the WEP key that you should have installed in the Router.

How do I connect Xbox 360 wirless network up


There are two ways to set up wireless connection to your Xbox 360, and get Xbox LIVE. Now remember, for you to do anything with the wireless connection, you need to buy Xbox LIVE. The company has a 3 month free trail for Xbox LIVE that you can sign up for. Then, when you have that bought, your true experience can begin. If you are fortunate enough that you console location is near your internet router, then you can hook up your 360's internet cord to the back of your router. then you will have to go to your internet configuration and test your connection, and you will have live. The other way is by going to Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Gamestop, or any other game seller and buy something that is called the Xbox 360 wireless connection router. I'm not sure if that is the exact name, but it looks like a pretty small internet router. Then, you hook that up to the front or back of your 360, into one of the many USB ports, and you install it. You may need help and may have to call Xbox 360 customer service. But, those are the two ways to get live.
Please rate.

Thankyou, Good Luck, Noob815

Need to get wireless on my laptop,


No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.

If all you're looking for is wireless internet within your home, then you can simply buy a wireless router off the shelf from Best Buy. However, a wireless router will only provide a range of a couple hundred feet, perhaps a couple of hundred yards. Essentially, it only provides internet access at a single fixed location. I'm getting the impression you're looking for something more.

If you're looking to have internet access wherever you go, no matter how far from home, you're going to need a subscription to wireless internet from a cellular provider such as AT&T or Sprint. They sell both internet access as well as the cards used to connect to the network, so check out their websites to explore your options.
