    Default Help, Xbox Live

    just tried to get online and fell at the first hurdle..
    1) my ethernet cable thingie is too big to go directly into the broadband modem..
    managed to overcome that as then it connects to my pc via a usb lead... which i have plugged into the back of the xbox but
    2) it wont recognise it...when i click to do the 'test connection' it keeps saying its disconected... how do i connect.. please help!!..

    (heres how the connection is currently set up..telephone line.. splitter(tel and sky) and filter..dsl cable to modem, then usb slot to pc..although the usb cable fits in the pc..at the back of the modem box is like a usb block..)

    currently using tiscali as my service provider, wired, with a sagem fast modem box...

    Have you tried resetting the modem with the pc and xbox turned off? I could never get that to work so I unplug the modem and swap the cables round each time!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    the usb port on the back isn't for the xbox modem. It needs to use a lan cable for that. If thats what you meant then

    Try turning the xbox off, reset the modem and wait for it to connect, then reboot the xbox. thats what I do.

    the modem end will be fine, you need a usb too lan/ethernet cable. the xbox needs the telephone type cable end plugged in.

    Thats really odd as all lan/ethernet cables use the same style end. you sure there isn't a sticker covering the port or anything?
