    I am struggling to connect my XBOX - XBOX Live. Unfortunately, I am not to up on the technical stuff and I am limited in what I can do with the computer that I get my wireless connection from for my laptop. (The computer belongs to the premises that I work at.) I have the wireless adapter connected properly, I've got the XBOX working fine, I've registered ok on-line, but to no avail. All I want to do is play golf with my mates on the other side of the world. The XBOX said I had to upload the 'upgrade' or the live connection would disconnect. I did this. (15 mins.) then tried again but no luck. Please help a learner.

    How are you connecting to the Internet with the laptop? What kind of wireless network are you connecting to? Make/model of the router and modem please. How are you attempting to connect the XBOX, using ICS or bridging the connections in the laptop?

    Hi John.
    I am using wireless connection (via password) through a Linksys-N Home ADSL2+Modem Router.
    Model No. WAG12ON

    I am guessing by 'bridging' you mean do I have a cable connected? NO I don't. The computer and Router are in the hall, and my XBOX (and Laptop) are in the lounge.

    BJ

    I'm not talking about a wire, I'm talking about using ICS or bridged network connections in the laptop. Bridging is preferred if possible.


    Bridging two network connections:

    1. Make sure the secondary connection has DHCP enabled.
    2. Open the Network Connections folder from the Start Menu, Settings.
    3. Select the first connection to be used in the bridge and highlight it by left clicking on it.
    4. Holding the Ctrl key, select the second connection to be used in the bridge by left clicking on it.
    5. Right click on one of the two highlighted connections and select Bridge Connections.
