Two Computer Lan With Crossover Cable

Im trying to set up a lan between me and my friends computer so that we can play games. So what ive done so far is connect them with the cable, then i went to the connection properties and on my computer:

Set the ip to 192. 168. 1. 1
Subnet mask to 255. 255. 255. 0
Default gateway to 192. 168. 1. 1
Preferred dns to 192. 168. 1. 1

And all the same on the other computer, except i set the ip to 192. 169. 1. 20, ive read that thats all i need to do besides plug the cables in on xp. Well its not working and it keeps saying "a network cable is unplugged" i dont know why its saying that, it is plugged in. Anyone know whats wrong?

I believe there are wireless devices like this, or is it just audio?

Setting Up A Two Computer Lan To Play Multiplayer Games

I want to connect two computers to each other so i can play multilayer games with friends, without worrying about pk'ers, crackers, and idiots. I went to best buy and got a cat6 cable, thinking all i needed to do is plug the two computers together and start playing. I was wrong. I went back to best buy and then they told me that i needed a "crossover cable" because the kind of cord i got needed a hub and another cable. So i traded my cable for a crossover one. I then came home with the notion that all i needed was to plug the two computers together and to know each other's ips to play. Again, i was wrong. After struggling for hours on end in the network connections and calling around for people who might know, we (me and my friend) wasted the whole weekend when we could've been death matching in a halo, half-life 2, and postal 2 binge of all binges. I come to you for a very simple, very short step-by-step instruction in the connecting two computers with one crossover cable. I'm talking so short that i could print the entire thing on one piece of paper. Thrice.

Headphone - Hook Up Ps3 To Computer Monitor Via Hdmi

The situation is i've recently decided to hook up my ps3 to my computer monitor via hdmi, and i'm wondering how to best deal with the sound. As far as i see it, i have (possibly) two options here, at least that would accomplish what i desire. I'm hooked up to my pc at the moment via a pair of headphones, and i desire to still be able to receive my pc audio through these even while using the ps3. I was curious, however, if it is possible to receive output from both the ps3 (via the monitor's audio-out) and the pc at the same time (by using a splitter to plug the headphones into both my pc's sound card and the monitor's audio-out), or would that not function?

The other option i was thinking about was connecting my ps3's audio via optical to my pc's sound card, and hoping i'd be able to hear the audio from both the pc and ps3 that way. But i'm uncertain, too, if that would work, since i'm not sure if i'd have to switch between the pc and optical-in for sound or not. Would this possibility work, or no. ?

If neither is doable, i could always pick up some speakers and hook them up to my monitor's audio-out, but i'm curious first to see if i can get the sound from both ps3/monitor and my pc going to the same pair of headphones somehow (and simultaneously). =>

Edit: to mention hardware, or at least all that i think should matter, my sound card is unfortunately the original x-fi xtremegamer. Which means to use the second option (if it is possible), i'd need to use an optical adapter, i realize.

Xbox 360 Connection Laggy

I have a wireless connection from my xbox to my router. The router and modem both work fine, because they're pretty new, and all other computers in the house work fine on the internet. However, my xbox connection is extremely laggy. I can connect to xbox live when i turn my xbox on, after waiting about 10 seconds. When i test my xbl connection, its says xbox live is up and running. When i play games, i have a one bar connection, (even though when i test my connection, i have full bars) and move around in 40 foot increments (basically, i lag extremely hard). When i try a wired connection, it seems to fix the problem, but i want to be able to have a wireless connection, so i don't have to feed an ethernet cable through the house. When i bring my xbox and my adapter to friends houses, it works fine. At my house, i have the proper xbox ports open, and nat is open. There is usually only one other computer in the house online when i'm online with the xbox, but when i get on by myself, it still doesn't work. Also, most times when i turn my xbox on, my xbox doesn't recognize that my adapter is plugged in, so i have to replug it in. If you are somehow able to answer my problem, i am not only impressed, but you will get best answer, if it is a solution. Oh, also, i have tried restarting my modem and router. Doesn't help at all.

Xbox Live Connection Problem

Ive been having xbox live connection problems. Every time i would play at night (around 10-11) i would get a lot of lag, making it hard to play. It happened every nigt, sometimes even disconnecting me from xbox live. This would only happen at night tho. I could play fine during the day. But now, its happening during the day as well. It gets really annoying an i have to get off every time. I run a connection test everytime but it says everything is ok. Imma see if i can call the internet provider today. Any idea of what it could be?

Xbox 360 Connection To Monitor With Speakers

My monitor is a hp w2448hc hdmi, i am using an xbox360 elite, the current cable i am using to go to my monitor is a hdmi to hdmi cable which makes the picture show up on my monitor and play audio through my monitors speakers. Now the problem is i want to play the sound through my speakers. They are an old brand of harman/kardon. They only have a green connection audio jack input thing. I plug that into my monitor and they will not work. How am i able to get these speakers to work through my monitor so i don't have to listen to my crappy audio from my monitor, but listen to the better quality from my speakers. What cables will i need, or is it simply something i am doing wrong?

Use Laptop For Xbox Live - Network Connection Settings

How do i use my laptop for xbox live and what do i make the network connection settings?!?

Answer:-
Make sure you laptop is connected to a wireless network and is getting an internet connection, then take an ethernet wire and connect it from your laptop ethernet port to your xbox ethernet port and bridge the connection of the wireless network to the wired one from control panel>network connections, just drag the mouse highlighting both connections then right click and then click on "bridge connections".

Hookup Xbox 360 Inside 18 Wheeler With Live Connection

How do you hook a xbox 360 up inside a 18-wheeler and have xbox live connection? I don't recommend attempting to connect an xbox 360 to xbox live in an 18-wheeler. Theoretically, it could be possible to connect an xbox to the internet using 3g technology (3g router + 3g data plan), though the connection speeds would likely be too slow and unreliable for online gaming.

Can Xbox 360 Connected To Router Interfere With Other Router Connection

Can an xbox360 connected to a router interfere with another person's router connection? The netgear router is in my room and my xbox360 is connected to it with a wired ethernet connection. My father is convinced that the xbox360 is the reason that he frequently doesn't have a connection, or it's very slow, and has to unplug the router for 60 seconds. I don't think that makes sense, especially since he'll have problems when i haven't even used the system all day. Also, his connection has gotten worse since he traded in our linksys router for this netgear. Can my xbox360 be interfering with his router connection, or is it the router?

Xbox Or Ps3 Through Computer Audio

Anyone have any stories to share or wisdom to impart regarding console-to-computer hookups, either xbox360 or playstation3?

My intention here is to avoid having to get an av receiver or an external audio decoder. I'd like to plug it into my computer monitor and speakers (without having to plug/unplug anything every time i want to use either console or computer). It looks possible to do hdmi > dvi cable from console to lcd monitor directly for digital 1080 resolution display (monitor has dual dvi inputs so that i can keep the computer hooked up at same time). For audio i was considering optical toslink from console into my htomega sound card (which has optical toslink in and out ports), which is currently running analog out to the speakers.

Computer Monitor With Xbox 360

I'm looking into buying a new monitor that i can play my xbox 360 on because i do not have the money for a brand new tv. I found a 19" flat panel viewsonic for 430$. I believe it has 1280 x 1024 resolution. Is there any specifics i should look for before buying it? 360 games run at 720p and 1080 dpi. Can i connect it with vga box? Or do i need a monitor/tv with video connections? Is viewsonic a reliable brand? Anyone with experience playing a vg system on a monitor, your comments would be appreciated.
