So my friend just gave me an Xbox and I thought i could set everything up in just a matter of the same day, which I did. The problem is that I need to use an ethernet cord (mines a cat6). The cord works great when plugged into the modem itsself but not through the router. I mean I can handle having it in the modem but then my router might as well just be thrown in the trash and then I wouldnt be able to use my laptop or ipod. Bottom line, why wont it work plugged into the router but it works plugged into the modem? and please dont tell me to restart all the equipment, as Ive tried that plenty of times.
