    HOW TO: Connect your PC to your XBOX (3 Ways)

    Post  Peppies™ on 19th January 2011, 11:25

    In order to connect to your Xbox you must create a simple network connection between your computer and your Xbox. There are three easy ways to do this. You can use a hub/switch, a router, or a crossover cable. This tutorial will show you how to configure the hardware. Remember though, You will not actually be able to login to your xbox until you have installed and configured the EvolutionX dashboard.

    Xbox Network Connection using Hub

    This is the most common network configuration and is also the easiest to setup.
    Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your cable/DSL modem into the uplink port of your hub. (Make sure that your uplink is switched to "on").
    Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the hub, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
    Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your hub directly to your xbox.
    **NOTE** A switch may be used in place of a hub with the same basic setup.**




    That's it! No other network changes should be needed for this configuration. Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.

    Xbox Network Connection using Router

    This is another common network configuration.
    Step #1: Plug your network cable(RJ-45 cable) that comes from your modem into the WAN port of your router.
    Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from one of the ports of the router, directly to the Network Interface Card (NIC) installed in your computer.
    Step #3: Take another RJ-45 cable and run it from a different port of your router directly to your xbox.

    **NOTE** In steps #2 and #3, you should not use a port that is directly beside the "uplink" port on your router, if your uplink port is being used to connect to another routing device.** If your router has a built in firewall, you will need to forward ports 8602 both incoming and outgoing to the internal ip address of your pc. Consult your device manaul for port forwarding.

    That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC

    Xbox Network Connection using Crossover Cable

    This is the last network configuration. For this setup you need at least one NIC card.
    Step #1: Plug your USB cable that comes from your modem into your PC's USB port. This should already be done, if you have a usb modem for your current internet connection.
    Step #2: Take an RJ-45 cable and run it from an installed NIC card on your PC, directly to the Xbox.

    **NOTE** A crossover cable is only needed if you are connecting the Xbox directly to the second NIC card. If you have a device such as a switch, hub or router in between you should use a standard RJ-45 cable. This type of network setup also requires "Winroute©", a program downloadable from the world wide web. Consult the manual for specific instructions on how to set this up. Also if you have a USB ethernet adapter, you may use any of the setups described herein. USB ethernet adapter basically converts a USB cable into an RJ-45 cable.

    That's it! Your Xbox is now on the same network as your PC.
