Dual LAN and Xbox 360

Hi Guys,

1st Post sorry if its been raised before , but i tried a search and came up with nothing.

My Motherboard has Dual LAN , Port one is connected to my Modem for internet access , and the other port i have just connected my new 360 so i can access xbox live , however when i turn on my 360 it does not connect , I was told it can connect as its sharing the internet from port one , but something is not right , obviously! , I dont have a router , so this is the only way i can get it setup , what am i doing wrong? or have i been ill advised? any pointers??

Kind Regards
Dog09

Thanks for the quick response , however when i open up the ICS , i see my network - home ( local area connection - joined ) and i see another which says unidentified network- public , but i dont have the manage connection options anywhere!! also when i right click on the local connection , there is no sharing tab. Any suggestions?

Here's the official Microsoft version of ICS for W7:

The sharing tab is actually on the properties page of the physical adapter.

If you don't have a router, how does your PC connect through the modem? Is it a cable or DSL modem? We need to get an idea of how everything fits together. Do you have PPPoE configured on the port going to the modem.

You also want to make sure that the firewall is letting traffic through both ethernet ports. I think there's a firewall setting for ICS.

I have a cable modem ( Virgin model vnmg300 ) I have ethernet cable from the back of the modem going into the ethernet port on the pc , i then have the other ethernet cable from my 360 going into the other ethernet port on the pc , PPoE , i have no idea what that is and how to configure , i have dual lan software which i have not installed , but from the manual it just says its for making the internet faster if i have two broadband lines and nothing about connection sharing.

Could you open a command prompt and type: ipconfig /all and post the results here? There's a config issue here somewhere and we need to get a good idea of how things are currently set.

I noticed that ethernet connection #2 shows as media disconnected. If that's where the Xbox is attached, that's a problem.

What kind of cable are you using between the PC and the XBox? It should be an ethernet crossover cable. A straight through cable won't work.
