Xbox 360 lan party setup

#1 Posted by Ghostmut (19 posts) -

Hi guys, just a quick question regarding setting up for an xbox lan party.  Now, i've done it before a few times by using a network hub but i dont have access to it anymore so i was wondering if its possible to connect the xbox's just through mt d-link modem/router? There are 4 ethernet ports on the back.
 
Thanks for your help!

I have a 4-port d-link router that I have used to LAN xboxes (and PCs, for that matter) -- I can't think of any reason why yours wouldn't work as well.

Yeah I've used a D-link router before too, no problems to speak of. You should be LANing it up in no time.

You can use a eithernet router and have a hosting xbox 360 the best one's to get are d-link cisco and belkin all others sucks if your running comcast or verizon you might have a router built into the modem it self other then that you should be good i been doing this since the first original xbox came out
