Connecting to Xbox Live using Ethernet and Airport

Is it possible to connect the xbox 360 using a ethernet cable to my powerbook g4, in order to utilise its wirelessly connected internet?
and what do i have to enable etc to do so

Try the following...

  • Connecting to Xbox Live using a Macbook Air?

    Okay, so i've had my Macbook Air about a month now and I wanted to use it to connect to xbox live just like I did when I had windows. I bought one of the adapters as the macbook air doesn't have a ethernet port and I have tried a lot of the tutorials and walkthroughs that other people have posted but they all seem to be froma few years ago and don't work for me. If there is anyone that could give me some help I would really appreciate it.
    I am also using OS X Mavericks 10.9.2.

    Hello BURL3YY,
    After reviewing your post, I have located an article that can help in this situation. It contains a number of steps and helpful advice concerning connection sharing:

    This is a very useful tool and I have used it myself to connect consoles to play games online. Have fun!

  • Trying to connect to xbox live using my home network, I need help.

    I have a xbox 360 that I want to connect to xbox live with, using my home network. Every time I try to connect to xbox live the only part that fails is the connecting to xbox live part. This is how my network is set up. I have Cox Cable as my ISP, a Linksys WCG200 gateway(v2), and WRT54GS(v7). The cable wire is connected to the WCG200 gateway, then an Ethernet cable connects the gateway to the WRT54GS router, and finally an Ethernet cable connects the router to my xbox 360. I have contacted Cox, Linksys, and Microsoft about the situation and they all say the problem is the version of the router. Someone told me that I may just need to change the firmware, but I don't know how to do that. If anyone could tell me what the problem is and hopefully how to fix it, it would be much appreciated.

    u might to open port numbers 88 and 234 on your router
    here's how to open ports
    1: open IE and on the address bar, type in 192.168.1.1 and hit enter
               USERNAME: ( leave it blank )
               PASSWORD: admin ( all in lowercases )
    2: click on the tab " applications and gaming "  then click on the SUBTAB port triggering.
    3: you can just name the application like, box or whatever and fill in 88 for each of the boxes in the first line
    4: same goes to application number 2 but you have to put 2304 for each of the boxes and pls do not forget to enable it, then save settings
    5: Teset the xbox if it's now working.
    6: if still not working, go to the SECURITY tab and uncheck the bock that says, " block anonymous internet requests and save settings.
    7: teset xboox agan and if it still won't work
    8: go to the SET UP tab and look for MTU.
    9: set it to manual and lower down the size by 10.( by default, it's 1500. )→ save settings.
              Hope it will help. goodluck!

  • Having Trouble Connecting To Xbox Live using my router and wireless adapter.

    Okay, so this is kinda long but I'll try and speed through. Recently I moved from my old place to a newer place (larger) and before, my old spot worked perfectly, no troubles. Now, eversince i got my internet cable service re-hooked up I've had problems. My internet is fine, that's not the problem. It's my xbox live for my 360. My cable guy pretty much set up my living room with the main router and not my studio office which I keep my 360 in. Instead he told me it would be much easier to just go out and buy a wireless adapter for my PC to recieve the signal from my living room off the main family computer. Well, went out and bought a $80.00 wireless adapter top of the line and it works perfectly, I get the internet really fast. Problem is, my 360 will not connect now. It always says DNS failed. Well here's the problem. I have a Linksys router in my studio office that sits on top of my PC that i have connected to the ethernet of my PC, then in the 2nd or 1st port i have my 360ethernet wire connected to my xbox360. Still it says DNS failed. Shouldn't my router be getting the signal from my Wireless adapter that it's receiving from the living room? It's connected through the same computer yet it doesnt connect. It finds my I address, and it finds the network adapter yet it always fails my DNS. I've tried evern switching the xbox360 ethernet to the main ethernet port on my pc and that just makes me fail the IP address test. I need help guys. My wireless adapter for the pc is a Belkin but my router is a linksys and not sure if the 360 just doesnt recognize it or not. Is there settings I'm missing or something? Please help!!!
    The Burninator...

    On your 360 if u getting an error msg DNS failed,you can login to your router setup page and go to status tab, not the Static DNS1 and DNS2 numbers and u can give a static dns to your 360. its will resolve ur issue.

  • Updated instructions for connecting to Xbox Live

    Hi everyone,
    Like many others, I can't seem to get my Xbox Live to connect consistently through the Airport Extreme. There is a ton of lag. I have been working on this for about a week and there have been some great posts related to this issue. However, all of the instructions and Youtube videos I have found aren't using the current OS, so I just can't seem to make it work.
    Can someone write out the detailed instructions for connecting to Xbox Live using Airport Utility 6.1? Or, if there is a post somewhere, I would appreciate it if someone can point me to it.
    Thanks!
    Patrick

    Hi there,
    You might need to forward/open ports on your router first so that your xbox's connection will work very well.
    In this link, Click Here, you can see an example on how to forward ports.
    But in your case, forward/open ports for your xbox's connection.
    Under the Port Range Forwarding page, enter the following:
    > Application=xbox1 Start Port=2869   End Port=2869   Protocol=TCP      IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
    > Application=xbox2 Start Port=10280   End Port=10284   Protocol=UDP      IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
    > Application=xbox3 Start Port=1900   End Port=1900   Protocol=UDP      IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
    > Application=xbox4 Start Port=10243   End Port=10243   Protocol=UDP      IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
     > Application=xbox5 Start Port=88   End Port=88   Protocol=Both
          IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
    > Application=xbox6 Start Port=3074   End Port=3074   Protocol=Both
          IP Address=(IP of the xbox)  Enabled = Checked
    Good luck! 

  • Upgraded to extreme and can no longer connect to xbox live

    My old airport express died so yesterday I bought an airport extreme to replace it. I had no problems setting it up, my powerbook and powermac connect to the internet just fine. My ps3, wii, and apple tv all connect fine. However I lost the ability to connect to xbox live with my xbox360. Running the "Test Xbox Live Connection" test shows that it passes all the tests and is connected to the internet until it reaches the xbox live test where it fails. According to xbox support there are no current outages or problems with my account.
    Since the only thing which has recently changed is the upgrade from airport express to an extreme it seems like that is likely the problem. I thought it might be a NAT or port thing but in the airport setup utility there are no options for changing either NAT or port settings.
    Any ideas anyone? It looks like a year ago when the extreme came out there were problems between it and the xbox, but it also looks like they were resolved. Also they caused the xbox not to be able to connect to the network at all, which mine can do.
    Thanks very much for any ideas or help. Otherwise the extreme is going to have to go back.

    That's a drag.
    I wish I could be more help, but I can not think of what the problem would be. I have mine connected to a network that bridges two AEBS to allow for a large area WIFI. I have no problems with either of the 360's connected. I have no special port forwarding or any settings changed to get the connection.
    I also know that since I just replaced my main base station for an unrelated problem, that it worked out of the box both times.
    I would say try direct connecting it. (the xbox) Not necessarily to correct the problem, but to isolate the AEBS as the problem. I would also try shutting down anything else that may be connecting so you only have a connection with your xbox. Again, none of this will probably solve your issue.... but you can get in contact with customer care or visit a genius bar.
    In my experience if you can give detailed results to test you have already performed to trouble shoot, they are very receptive to replacing your product. Isolating the AEBS and saying you know t will connect direct, and that even when it is the only device connected.... it fails. I would also try both wireless and wired if you have both options.
    I know it is not the optimal answer.... probably a pain.... but sometimes things just work kinda goofy. I know the stuff works and works great when it does... but I have had my share of issues with apple hardware. The good news is they have never failed me when it comes to taking care of it.
    Good Luck !!!

  • New Fios G1100 and Multiple Xboxs Connected to xbox live issues.

    I just upgraded my router from the Actiontec MI424WR to the G1100. Now I am into an issue with Fios keeping a connection to xbox live on selected xbox devices. I have 3 xbox 360 and 2 xbox one connecting to the network. Both Xbox One maintain solid connection to live, but the 360 experience I have a totally different experience. My set up has 1 Xbox One Wired, 1 wireless. I have 2 xbox 360 wireless and 1 wired. I am also experiencing problems with one of my desktops which is wired that randomly loses a connection to internet. I been using this TRENDnet 8-Port 10/100Mbps GREENnet Switch (TE100-S80G) to help with wired connections. Both Xbox Ones on the network remain connected at all times, or at least I haven't seen a drop. My experience with my xbox 360s are completely different from my Xbox One.They all drop connection randomly every 5 to 20 min. I can immediately sign back in , but this continuosly happens. I was able to get one xbox 360 to maintain a continuous connection by putting it IP address and enabling DMZ on it. I have tried port forwarding but that doesn't work. Anybody have any suggestions or solution? Or should I just shipped back the G1100 and go back to Actiontec MI424WR.      

    Who is your ISP...?
    Are you getting any error message...?
    Try the following settings and check..
    Open the router setup page,On the set-up tab change the MTU Size to 1365 and click Save Settings...Click on "Administration" tab and disable the option UPnP and click Save Settings...
    Click on "Applications and Gaming" tab and then click on "Port Range Forwarding" subtab...
    1) On the first line in Application box type in ABC, in the start box type in 53 and End box type in 3074, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box, click Save Settings once done...
    2) Once you return to the set up page click on the Security tab and uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...
    3)Click on the Status tab and take note of DNS1 and DNS2 Addresses...
    4) Goto the XBox Network Settings and IP Address Settings and select manual IP Settings and assign the following on your Xbox
    IP Address :- 192.168.1.20, Subnet Mask :- 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway :- 192.168.1.1...
    5) Also assign the DNS Addresses on the Xbox
    Use DNS1 and DNS2 Addresses you took note off of the router status tab as Primary DNS & Secondary DNS for the xbox...
    6) Turn off your modem, router, and Xbox...Wait for a minute...
    7) Plug the modem power first, wait for another minute and plug the router power cable, wait another minute and turn on the Xbox and test it...it will connect...

  • Connecting HP Laserjet 500N using ethernet cable and router

    I had my HP Laserjet 5000N connected to my wireless router via ethernet cable. It worked fine. But then I changed routers and can't remember how to reestablish the connect. 
    Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    no problems.
    There is a priority order when multiple networking interfaces are available.
    Ethernet is higher than Airport in the order.
    If both ethernet and Airport interfaces are connected to the network, then ethernet becomes the primary networking interface.
    If nothing is plugged into the ethernet port, then Airport will get control.

  • How do I connect TC to a new ethernet and share a new ethernet DSL with a new PC and use with my macbook Pro? I tried and get no internet on the PC or Macbook Pro?

    how do I connect TC to a new ethernet and share a new ethernet DSL with a new PC and use with my macbook Pro? I tried and get no internet on the PC or Macbook Pro?

    Ok.
    I am connected to wi-fi through TC connected to a specific router and is working perfectly and saving data through TM without any issues.
    The TC version is 7.6.1 and am using OS 10.7.3
    The router mode is on Bridge mode and router is connected to TC through USB cable, I suppose for internet access. My Mac is on wi-fi through TC
    I have another location, much further, which recently have been installed with wi-fi through router that has WPA accessibiulity with password, 100% different than the current one.
    Since, I will be most of my time in this new location, I wish to move my TC to this new location, and configure it in similar fashion like what I am having right now.
    Naturally, I do not wish to lose any saved data on the TC.
    Hope I managed to provide enought info.
    Thanks in advance

  • I lost my connection when I was using internet and when I want to reconnect to airport it give me connection timeout error, I changed my password on router but still doesn't work. How can i fix my problem?

    Hi,
    I lost my airport connection when I was using internet and when I wanted to re-reconnect to airport it gave me connection timeout error, I changed my password on router but still doesn't work. How can i fix my problem?

    Hello there hastibahreini,
    It sounds like you were using your Wi-Fi network from your Airport base station and the connection cut out. You have reset the password on the device but the issue persists. I would try the 3 resets outlined in the following article in order to help resolve the issue. If it persists, is the Wi-Fi connection issue happening on more than one device or computer?

  • Will the AirPort Express Base Station create a wifi connection that will enable me to wirelessly connect to XBOX live on my xbox 360

    will the AirPort Express Base Station create a wifi connection that will enable me to wirelessly connect to XBOX live on my xbox 360

    Yes, but not in all cases with it provide your with an "Open NAT" condition that some on-line gaming require. However, for most Xbox LIVE access, it should work just fine.

  • How to connect to Xbox Live with the Actiontek GT704-WGB wireless router

    If the title got you here, then you are probably a Verizon DSL customer who is trying to connect your Xbox to Xbox Live with the Actiontek GT704-WGB wireless router and are getting nothing but errors saying, "your NAT is set too high", or, "Your MTU setting is too low", etc.  Well, after many calls to Xbox support, Actiontek support, and Verizon support, I finally came up with the solution myself.
    All that is needed is a little techie know-how about router settings and you'll do just fine!  However, if you are uncomfortable with doing it yourself (and it is really really easy to do!) then you can call Verizon support and have a tech support rep remotely conntect to your PC and make the changes for you: however, you have to speak with someone in advanced tech support and to do that you have to agree to a 1 year support contract to the tune of $14.95 per month in order for them to do it!  Scam???  You be the judge!
    So, here are the steps to take to get it working and by the way, YOU CAN NOT GET THE XBOX TO CONNECT TO THIS ROUTER WIRELESSLY!!  YOU MUST CONNECT YOUR XBOX TO THE ROUTER WITH AN ETHERNET CABLE IN ORDER FOR THIS TO WORK!!!  If you don't heed this warning, you will unfortunatly go through all the steps below, only to find that you get the same errors but, ethernet is faster than wireless so it's better!....right?.....right?   (hears crickets chirping)....right?  Oh well, I tried!  Also, you must have your Xbox on in order to change the router settings (which you'll see why later) Anyway, here's the steps:
    1) On your PC, open a browser window and type in the address bar:  192.168.1.1 and press enter.
    2) You will then see the interface on which you will make changes to the router's settings.  If at any time you are prompted for a username and password (which should happen right after you press enter) the defaults are: username: admin password: password.  If you have changed these, enter what you changed them to.
    3)Click on the icon on the top labelled "Advanced Setup"
    4)In the left section, click "WAN IP Address"
    5)At the warning screen, click "yes"
    6)Scroll down until you see "MTU setting" and enter 1370.  NOTElease don't be tempted to either enter 1500 or leaving it at 1500 (which is the default) because you might know that 1500 is the maximum at which this can be set which is TOO HIGH AND WILL NOT WORK!  Trust me and enter 1370 and then click on "apply"
    7)Click on the top icon labelled "Security"
    8)In the left column, click on "applications".  This is where we are going to open the 3 ports that Xbox Live uses to communicate with your Xbox.
    9)In the drop down box labelled "PC Name" select "Xbox 360". This is why you had to have your console on and connected cuz if you didn't, it would not show up on the drop down list!
    10)Under "category" click on the bubble next to "user"
    11)Click on "New" which is one of the blue buttons near the bottom.
    12)As for the rule name, I entered "Xbox" but you can put whatever you want but I'd use that so you know it's the ports you opened for the console.
    13)For protocol, select TCP. (Yes you will also open the same ports for UDP but for some reason if you select TCP.UDP instead of doing them seperatly it doesn't work.....I dunno why!?
    14)For all 3 "Port start", "Port End", and "Port Map Start" put the # 80.
    15)Click "apply"
    16)Now, select UDP and put the same port # 80 and again click "apply"
    17)Repeat steps 13 through 16 except with the numbers 3074 and 53, clicking apply after each one.  What you should have now on the bottom are a list of all the ports you opened, one TCP and one UDP for each number totalling 6 entries.
    18)Click "back" to return to the Applications screen.
    19)If you have to, select Xbox 360 for PC name, and click the bubble next to "user" and you'll now see the entry called "Xbox" or whatever you called it.
    20)Click that entry to highlight it and then click the blue "add" button to the left and then click "apply" at the bottom.
    21)Close the browser screen and turn off your PC and Xbox and any other hardware connected to the router.
    22)Turn the router off and unplug it and wait about 5 minutes.  It can take this long for any residual current in the router to dissapate and for the NAT table to clear itself.
    23)Turn on the router and wait for the internet light to come on green meaning the router has booted and has an internet connection.
    24)Turn on the Xbox AND ONLY THE XBOX!
    25)There is no need to go into network setting as when the Xbox is connected by ethernet, it automatically configures and connects intself.  You can, however go into network settings and perform a connection test but this to is not necessary.
    You now should be able to connect to Xbox Live!  If not, you've done something wrong and must either go through all the steps again or let Verizon do it for you (for a fee that is).

    I followed jtktlw's instructions to the letter.  Problem was I had already enabled UPnP before doing so.  Afterward I disabled UPnP and rebooted....no change.  I reset the MTU to 1500...boom, it works.  Seems for me all I needed was to open the right ports to get it to work.
