Hi. I'm having a problem when trying to connect my xbox 360 to my Desktop.
Let me explane my setup:
Xbox 360 connected directly to Desktop with an ethernet cable. Not through a modem or router.
Desktop recieves internet via a 3g wirless USB Modem
Desktop runs Windows Vista Home Premium
My problem is that while I am able to access all of my music, video and pictures from my Desktop on my Xbox 360, I still get an "Cannot obtain an IP address from your router or modem" error.This happens when the xbox is searching for the network. Now I know that Windows Vista reconizes 3g wireless USB Modems as dail-up connection, and that all dail-up connections use a dynamic IP address. What I want to know is if theres a way to enter or add a static IP address so I can give that static IP address to my Xbox 360 so I am able to connect my xbox to my Desktop. Also I have turned off my firewall so its not that.
Any help would be appreciated. thank you
