Hi i just bought a xbox 360 last week, but i am unable to get online with it, the xbox is telling me that my network adapter is not plugged in, which it is. i haee a wireless network set up for the two pc's in the house, i have the small usb port on my pc and the main box is next door, would this cause a problem. i am slightly confused and would be grateful for any advice thank you

Please explain the setup a bit better.

What is the "Main Box" next door?

What is the relevance of the "small usb port"?

What have you plugged into the Xbox?

Who is your ISP?

"i have the ethernet wire connected into my xbox 360 and into the ethernet slot on my pc"

Surely it should go from the XBox to the Router? You might be able to do via the PC with Internet connection sharing but i looked into that for a PS2 and gave up.

so i should run the cable from my Xbox into the router in the other room?

Well i would have.

In order for it work the way you want (via the PC) you need to set up Internet Connection Sharing but i have experience doing this with a XBox.

Is there no manual with the XBox?
