Network Connection Problems Through Tcp Ip
Posted 27 March 2010 - 04:43 PM
I have encountered a problem recently with my desktop pc where I have had to format and re-install windows. I am currently running Windows XP SP2, my xbox 360 is connected directly to the tower by means of the supplied cabled.
The Xbox is streaming my music/movies etc. no problem, yet it will not connet to xbox live... when I do the xbox's network test it says it cannot find the netwok???? How is this possible if it is streaming my music etc perfectly fine?
I play extensivly online and have not been able to do so for a few months now due to this "hickup"
Please guys any assistance with this problem will be greatly appreciated.
IP on my pc is 169.254.44.253
Subnet on my pc is 255.255.0.0
Gateway on my pc is 0.0.0.0
Xbox is set to automatic as it has always been

Under younetwork connections right click on your internet connection and click properties. The click the sharing Tab in the window that pops up. There should be a tick box that say something like "share this connection with other computers" or something to that effect. click ok, and maybe reboot... should work at that point.
The connection works now because you have a basic network set up, the xbox 360 doesnt need a switch/crossover cable as its port is auto switching.
