I have constant trouble with my toshiba laptop using windows vista constantly losing the dial up internet connection.

If your telephone line may have disturbances from any electronic devices at any point then this could happen. Try moving other devices especially speakers, mobile phones and TV near the modem. Does your laptop wifi enabled one? Do you use telephone in that line? If so use a line filter with two out. could you give your laptop model no.? There is not enough details to pinpoint the problem

How do you update your xbox 360

How To Get the Updates
For most gamers, keeping the XBOX 360 up to date is pretty easy, especially if they've taken advantage of the numerous online components through XBOX Live!. When a gamer is signed in to the Live! service, the system automatically checks for new updates. If one is available, you'll be prompted to update. Most updates take 3 to 5 minutes depending on the speed of your internet connection.

If you've never updated your console, but have access to a high speed internet connection, getting your updates through the web is pretty simple and straightforward. Unfortunately, Microsoft has made online updates unavailable to those who have not registered for the XBOX Live! service. Most folks that don't like or participate in online gaming wouldn't normally think of signing up for XBOX Live!.


The Live! service has two levels of membership. The gold level allows you to play games online with others, an enhanced friends list, the online marketplace, and more, but is only available to those who subscribe monthly or purchase prepaid subscription packs. Getting a silver membership is free, and allows you to receive all system updates, but this also means you'll need to give some personal information to Microsoft. I've read through their terms of use and privacy statements pretty carefully, and even though it doesn't contain any major clauses that would cause me to be concerned, I would have appreciated an option to get online updates without having to give out my name, telephone number, and personal address.
8b5644ba4a76476f--54c34f3a-11972598fb2--76ab-628131945-w580h580.jpgYou can sign up for an XBOX Live! account directly through the 360 dashboard. Instructions for doing so are located here. Once you've successfully created an account (which may take a few attempts if the service bombs out on you), you should be notified immediately that a new update is available.
Not everyone has high-speed Internet access, and those that don't participate in online gaming may not have their Internet access accessible from their living rooms. Yes, Microsoft offers a Wi-Fi bridge for the 360, but most folks are not going to cough up $100 bucks to download an update. Besides, that still wouldn't solve the problem for dial-up users.
Microsoft has made one update available as a direct download from, which allows you to play more original XBOX games on your 360. If you don't care about 1080p or any other feature that they've made available, you can download the update and burn it to a CD. To update your 360, just stick that CD into the drive. It's unfortunate that Microsoft doesn't make all updates available in this manner, which would benefit a great deal of users that own high-tech consoles, but have low-tech web connections.
If you're in the dial-up group, there are a few ways you can get the full updates to your system. One option is to grab your console and drag it to a friend or family member's house in order to download updates. It's certainly a pain, but fortunately major updates are few and far between.

8b5644ba4a76476f--54c34f3a-11972598fb2--76a9-87690626-w580h580.jpgIf you're technically inclined, you can use a Windows 98SE, 2000, XP, or Vista computer to share your dial-up connection with your XBOX 360 via ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). It can be a little tricky to set up for the novice, but fortunately there's plenty of useful guides to walk you through the process. Updates will take a while to download this way, but it will prevent you from having to pack up your 360 and drag it to your neighbor's house just to download the latest updates.
Final Thoughts
On the surface, it may seem inconvenient to make the casual 360 owner jump through hoops to update a video game machine, but the move to an upgradeable platform will allow video game makers to adapt their existing technologies to ways that will improve your experience long after your initial purchase. Those who are up to date in the latest gaming hardware, but relics when it comes to computers and Internet access, will find updating their 360s much more inconvenient than those with ultrafast connections and whole house LAN. It's unfortunate that there's been less effort to provide system updates via alternative means to the Internet.
In the end, if you're always looking for ways to get more out of the gear you already own, these updates are a sure fire way to make your 360 investment seem better and better every day.

Hope this helps.

For connecting to laptop and using internet needs ACTIVE GPRS/3G connection. If you doesn't have this please call the net work provider to make it active.

After that you need to create an data account in the data communication settings. Otherwise you can ask the provider to send it to you according to your mobile model.
Install that and restart your mobile.
Connect it to your Laptop and create a network connection.
You have to dial a number there to connect to the provider. Dial the number and connect.
Now you can browse the internet using mobile.

Salutations LHmom,

Because your using laptop computers and a mobile carrier for your internet services this will be a little harder then normal but not imposable.

First what you would need is a ethernet switch or hub. This should allow you use the laptop with the Verizon card as a "Gateway". You would then connect the Xbox 360 to the hub and it would share the internet from the laptop.

Windows XP, and Vista have nice networking wizards that can walk you through the settings. But be aware you may need to change the settings back when you are not using the Xbox 360.

Hope this helps.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
