Yeah, anytime a router is involved it is a wireless set up

Because most cable companies use a dynamic ip address, sometimes when it changes, the router will not always catch it and you lose connection. Always do this and do it in this order if you lose connection and are using a router:
1. Remove Power Cord from the Modem
2. Remove the Power Cord from the Router
3. Shut your main PC all the way down
Once the PC is completly shut down then do this:
1. Put the Power Cord back into the Modem
2. Put the Power Cord back into the Router
3. Turn on your PC.

Easy way to remember is the name: Modem Router PC, aka MR. PC

I know that is the proper way of doing a restart, but that's the first I've heard of MR. PC. Thats an awesome way to remember it, I think I'm going to start teaching that to my end users since they never get it right. (it's also critical for NAT with XBL for some reason)

Don't know if it's been mentioned here, but you can use a laptop as a wireless connector for your XBox. I helped my brother set it up and have now promptly forgotten how to do it. But, I am sure you could google it.

When I was living in a split level our cable jack was downstairs and my computer was in my office upstairs.

I just bought a 50 foot black ethernet cable and tacked it down to the baseboards up the stairs and under a small throw rug. Almost invisible and was a way better connection versus wireless.

We had wifi running as well, but most wifi routers will have additional ports for running network cable.

I found this on it, haven't tried it (i took the hit and bought a wireless adapter), but it looks like it would work and the video isn't too bad.

I still have it as pending. I'll remove the request and shoot another request, presumably to be promptly ignored. Wizard's gotten so bad that even their former employees hate the fans...

Huh. I actually thought I'd removed that due to its WUMBiness...weird. That said, if you are offering an update Kearstin, can I send you some art for a new banner? If so, thanks much! If not, no worries!

I am not on often but my username is boberthavok. I have had it for a few months now but don't get a chance to play it.

But odds are if I am online I will probably be playing Halo 3 or the original TMNT arcade game or what ever game I rent at the time if it is multiplayer online

Anyone played "Borderlands?"

I saw this link and became pretty interested in the game. I mean, Ice T is a helluvan endorsement!

Just curious if anyone had a review or thoughts on the game?

Cuz, if I don't get this, I prolly won't be playing XBox much until L4D2 comes out.

The demo is already out for those who pre-ordered. And it should be coming out Nov. 3rd for those who haven't.

Alright, I finally got set up with XB Live today. I basically disconnected my modem from my computer downstairs and connected it upstairs long enough to do it. Tomorrow I'll go to my cable company and get another modem for the upstairs to where I can start exploring this more. I'll eventually go wireless, but for right now it will only cost me a few bucks to do things this way. My handle was already taken, so here is the alternative: The 1st Donster. Please seek me out, as I'm kind of new to this and don't know what I'm doing guilty

Hey, so for anyone who hasn't figured it out, you can hook your 360 up to your computer. Shit's awesome, I can watch all my downloaded movies/shows without having to bring my comp downstairs and hook it up to the TV.
