Re: hooking up xbox 360 to router
If I may assume, currently the modem is connected directly to the back of the tower (PC) by a lan cable. To connect the AP/Router, remove the LAN cable from the back of the PC and connect it to the WAN input of the router. With another LAN cable, connect one of the 4 ports of the router to the LAN card of the PC.
Go to the router's Web Configuration Utility and make sure Wireless, SSID, broadcast and DHCP is enabled. For the moment, WEP, WPA and MAC Filter off. See if you can connect you XBox 360.
Hope this be of help/idea to you. Good luck and post back should you need additional information.

with verizon, you need to set the modem to full bridged mode so that the connection from your modem will be opened. This certain firewall is called NAT. Your modem and your router has this feature. To disable NAT on your modem, you need to set it to full bridged mode. To disable the NAT on your router, you need to open ports on your router.
You need to open this port on the router for Xbox live to work
TCP: 80, 3074, 53
UDP: 88, 3074
forward it to the ip of your Xbox.
this should set the NAT on your xbox to open, not moderate.
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.
go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address?
Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?
you need to set static ip's for the xbox 360 and the lan that is on the pc, easy to bride the two connections on your computer, then set static on the lan that the 360 is plugged in to, example:
360's static settings:
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.
While the modem is connected to the router, and both are turned on, try unplugging the modem power cable for 30 seconds then plugging it back in, this will force the modem to recognize the router as a trusted device.
If this does not work, check to make sure the cables between your modem and your router, and between the router and your xbox are secure, and that they are in good condition. If they are older cables and the connectors are pulling off the end of the wire, replace them.
Next you can try connecting your xbox directly to your modem, once again, unplug the modem while connected and plug back in. If you still have the problem after this step, then you've narrowed the problem down to either the modem, or the network adaptor on the xbox.
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.
There is an option that needs to be set on your router. I cannot recall the exact setting, but Im sure google can yeild the results. I would also give the XBOX a static address and put that address in the DMZ. Umm... My friend had the same issue, and I will check with him and report back.
