    yeah, there is. List the network settings on both the PC and Xbox. Without those how can anyone tell if the settings are right?

    My Xbox and my 360 i use the same wireless gaming adapter with so it should be fine. If the 360 connects and you do not have them both hooked up at the same time then the Xbox settings should match what you have in the 360 that does connect.

    Nice. trying to show how annoying the writing for the thread title was?

    and actually you can use a cat5 ethernet cable to connect strait to the PC or through a router. And you can also use DHCP for both types as long as that is how the PC is set up. That is what i did. And there are so many factors why it will not connect.
    check the settings on both, make sure you have the same information in the 360 settings as you do in the Xbox 1
    make sure you set your hacked dash to STatic: no so it automatically picks up an IP adress, DSN, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway from the PC.

    Listing your PC settings and Xbox dash settings like i asked above would really help though.
