System Link for Borderlands

Hi,

My friend and I have just started playing Borderlands again and we want to play together using the system link.

I have the older (white) xbox 360 and he has the (black) newer one.

We conected them using an ethernet cable, but we could not get them to link.

Well we dont think we did, the screens ran amost exactly the same but when we both started to play we could not see the other player......so we dont think it worked.

Any ideas what we are doing wrong????

Hi Para3Monkey,

You mention that you are using an Ethernet cable but System Link requires a Crossover Ethernet cable.   They are wired differently however it is very seldom that they are  labeled so it can be difficult to tell the difference between a regular Ethernet cable and a crossover.

 

Can you confirm that you are using a Crossover Ethernet cable? 
If yes do you have the ability to try a different crossover Ethernet cable?

Did this solve your problem?

I have tried using an ethernet cable and followed the instructions at that link before my first post and it did not work....Thats why I asked what i might be doing wrong....It would help if you read my post before answering as I had already done what you have just suggested and it did not work....

To use system link you need an Xbox system link cable or an ethernet crossover cable.

Then follow this guide:support.xbox.com/.../connect-xbox-360-consoles-together-for-system-link-play-910583
