  • xbox live

    I'm using a crossover cable which goes straight from my computer to the xbox, everythign used to work fine but i think i changed some settings on my ip and stuff a while back, im pretty sure i got back to normal again but now ont he cable it says "limited or no connectivity" and i can no longer connect to xbox live.

    I'm all out of ideas!

    Are you using Comcast? or have you gotten a new router or modem?

    if the IP 192.168.1.1 is in use, you can't use this crossover cable setup. But post back, maby we can fix it.

      I kept the same router, I was doing port forwarding so I changed my IP to static, then changed it back but now i have to use a static IP or my internet won't work.

      For some reason now, if my xbox is plugged into my pc, when i turn on the box; the internet turns off.

        So you have two network cards in your computer and one is connected to your router and the other via a crossover cable is connected to your xbox?

        If that is the case, does your router not have switch built into it? If it does, then you could just plug the computer and the xbox directly into the router.

            Have you fiddled with tcp/ip settings?

            If you go into cmd and type in ipconfig /all and then go into network settings, and select the local area connection, you can then change the ip to become recognized by the network... also make sure you give ftp access to connect to the internet

              Sounds like the wired ethernet adapter doesn't have an IP address anymore then. Did you double check those settings?

                yeh i have fiddled about with the tcp/ip settings, ive tried ipconig /all and tried some of the other ip addresses and such but it didnt make a difference.

                On my ethernet cable it does say it cannot establish an ip address.. I still haven't got a clue though

                  have you also configured your xbox settings?

                  like if your xbox is on 86.192.1.1 your pc is going to have to be on 86.192.1.2
