Connection Issues Between laptop and Xbox.

Good evening all,

I have recently bought a new Xbox 4gb slim.

I'm encoutering problems not with connecting to Xbox Live but just getting my Xbox to connect to the laptop.

The setup I have is as follows.

I have a laptop computer that has a wireless connection to the internet running Windows XP

What I am wanting to do is connect the Xbox through an ethernet cable to the laptop through and share the wireless internet.

When I run a network test it's not getting past the first part. It's not getting connected to the laptop, let alone any further to the internet or xbox live.

I have reinstalled my network card and the drivers and that works all ok.

When I run a network test, just to see if I can connect to the PC, not just to internet or Xbox live I am getting the following error:

Can't obtain an IP address from your router or modem. Now the issue wtih this is that I am not connecting the Xbox through a router or modem. It's just hard wired straight from laptop to Xbox.

I have tried running a 5 port switch and using two cables so it's not just hard wired straight through and this isn't doing anything either.

I am getting these errors codes when I see the status of the message:

W: 0000-000B

X:4000 - 1001

Y: 0000-0000

Z: 0000-0000

ID: 0001-0002

I'm pretty sure I need to be messing around with IP settings on my laptop but not sure where to start. I have gone through guides and tutorials today but had no luck.

If someone could start to point me in right direction that would be great.

Thanks again

I knew I have forgotten something.

I have bridged the connections and this hasn't helped either.

Hi there. Once you have wired you xbox to your laptop, you will need to bridge the connections together.

To do this, go to your Network Connections on your PC, highlight both your Wireless adaptor and your Wired adaptor and select Bridge connections.

Apologies, I am having issues with connecting to Xbox live as I say I don't at the top but I think because I can't even connect to the laptop then I can't connect to Xbox Live
