Hey ive been going at this for the past couple of days trying to get my xbox set up for live with my 56k dial up connection
im pretty sure its a internal modem and it has a place to connect a Ethernet cable so im assuming it has a NIC card.
Heres my situation i go to network connections set up ICS and then i turn off computer off then connect the Ethernet cable from my xbox to my computer.(yes i do have a phone line connected to the phone jack). Then i turn comp on dial up my connection turn on xbox and go to live and it gives the mesage no connection was found click here to troubleshoot. Ive tried taking cables in and out and now im trying to set up my ip adress i really dont no how though, and do some ISP's not have gateways mine has a ip dress and subnet mask and now i got the ip down and i had somthing down for my submask but now when i change it it says that is not vailed for this connection or some crap.
Any way if theres somthing im not doing right or im doing somthing just plain stupid give me a slap to the face and tell me what needs to be done
Thanks for all ur help

Xbox LIVE requires DSL/Cable, no dial-up.
Dial-up (for example, 56K), ISDN, and satellite Internet services are not supported.

You need a slap in the face....56k isn't even close to being enough for Live...probably not even good enough for a fast paced game of pong.

I thought ive seen many instances where people have connected using a 56k modem so im positive you can
lol you guys goole how to set up xbox live with a 56k modem
Here is a EX: http://www.halo-center.com/staticpages/ind...050320095945529
where he shows how to set it up that list is just some service providers if you notice it says if ur using a diffrent provider and we notice then we will add it to the list, and all the talk about is broadband and dsl becuase there afraid to many ppl will try and use dial up and lag xbx live up. But if ur saying that the console has a feature that can detect wiether ur using dial up or highspeed i would like you to prove it to me

You have to set up your computer and xbox to be on the same network using static assignments.

Such as entering the ip adress subnet mask and gateway i cant find my gateway and i cant change my subnet mask for some reason...help
Dec 1 2005, 02:00 AM
Well I have never tried this kind of hookup, but if I had to guess at it;
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: (Leave Blank)
If you want to test these settings, you should be able to ping your xbox from your pc when its all done.

ok my ip adress is 18.104.22.168 and my i put in that subnetmask but on my computer it doesnt show me a gateway when i look there is nothing there any suggestions? and how would i ping my xbox
Dec 1 2005, 02:17 AM
The information I put in above for your computer is what you have to put in for your ethernet connection on the PC.
Ping your xbox by going to a command prompt and type "Ping 192.168.1.2"
Dec 1 2005, 02:18 AM
Ok i looked on my network bridge and saw that the ip adress was 192.168.0.1 and the subnetmask as you said above but i dont see a gateway, and i dont understand why the ip adress from the network bridge is diffrent from my actually connection.
Dec 1 2005, 02:26 AM
If by actual connection you mean the 22.214.171.124 IP address, that's your WAN-side IP, the actual address of your PC on the net that your ISP serves you.
192.168.x.x IPs are LAN (Local) addys (not Wide Area Network.. WAN).
Dec 1 2005, 02:28 AM
lol is there a tutorial for this
where do i go to put that in for my ethernet connection
or i mean where do i go to find the ip subnet and gateway etc... i have a dial up remeber guys

Yes, there are several versions of the best tut on this site in various places.
Since search is down ATM, here: http://www.chefelf.com/xbox/networking.php
Not going to address the dial-up issue though.

well got damnit i think i have a straight through cable and i was trying to connect it from my computer straight through my xbox... guess ill have to just save this one for another day. I know wally world isnt going to take it back..

well, actuly you can. yes. it is possible to connect to live with 56k. but you will lag. expecialy in counter strike and halo 2. games like pso, and tetris will play fine. they dont need as mutch transmission as halo.
i have connected to live via 56k - router and ICS in windows xp Pro. my service provider was netzero. i had a pci internal modem, and a pci NIC. i connected the normal way, to my 56k modem. dialed my service provider. and setup ICS with my modem to share with the NIC. i connected a patch cord to the NIC, and xbox. set up the xbox to detect all settings automaticly. then made a static IP address(i.e 192.168.1.61, gateway( i.e 192.168.1.1), dns(i.e 126.96.36.199), subnet mask(i.e 255.255.255.0) and had my router detect those numbers. then relay them to the xbox. i set my router to allow MTU to be at max (i.e 1492).
also, make sure you have no programs on your PC that utalize any internet connection.
so, once your online, and your router is blinking active connection. and your xbox gets past the DNS auto detect.... that will cause some isses. it did for me.
your on the live dash.
as for games.. .well i played pso fine. i tryed halo. i could not use the head set with out having cut out or getting static feedback in eather game. and as long as my internet connection was up. i could play as long as i want.
i did have a difficult time getting the xbox to see DNS from my router. but i eventuly got it to work.
also, a internet accelerator might help. i installed one of those, it improved connection quality. a little , but still no luck on a headset.
so, in all. yes it is possible. but not easy to keep active.
(and no im not crazy.. well...)
