I see you did not mention that you have a router. You will need a router to connect the laptop and XBOX at the same time. If you just want to connect the XBOX straight to the modem you can follow the instructions below.

If you are using a cable modem you just have to plug it in the modem then turn it off and on.
if you are using DSL then you have to setup the XBOX to connect via PPPoE that you can do via the network settings then put in your username and password

    Depending on the router that you have, you might have to do a port forward for your router.



    You will have to forward ports 88 and 3078 both for UDP and TCP



    Please give the model of your router

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.

IP address failed


The Xbox 360 cannot access the internet through an ethernet cable that is connected to your laptop. You have to connect your Xbox 360 directly to your modem or to some form or router.

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.

Xbox360


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
