Windows 7: no lan connection

06 Dec 2010   #1

windows 7 home premium x64
no lan connection

i am really new to windows 7 so don't get too technical with me, but i don't have a lan connection.

whenever i go to my network connections there isn't even an icon for it. i have tried downloading drivers but i still have no lan.

i just want to have my xbox use the internet from my laptops internet through an ethernet cable so if there is another way to do that without all this lan business just tell me that.

Please mention the type of connection that you have at home i.e., using a modem,wireless modem,router etc.

Did you check if you have the latest drivers for your LAN card???

As for the set up or connecting your XBox, there are two ways it can be done. Via a direct connection by use of a crossover cable or via a router.

If you do it by connecting directly, the xbox and the LAN connection on your PC being used for the connection will need to have Static IP's assigned. When you know the xbox's IP (usually displayed on the dashboard of modded xboxes) use that to set up a connection with the FTP Client of your choice (i.e. Flash FXP, Cute FTP)

If using a router to FTP; the process is a little more easy. Make sure DHCP is enabled on both your xbox and PC, plug the xbox into your router, restart it and then input the current IP displayed on the xbox into your FTP Client.

Hope this resolve your issue!!!
