How do you connect a Xbox 360 to a wired network?

Student

One of the main reasons that gaming systems wont connect to the network is because the safeconnect manager that regulates what can and cannot use the network sees them as an unknown device. So a way to tell the manager that your device is in fact an XBox 360 which is covered by our safeconnect system, is to run the Internet Connection Test.

If you are not able to connect to the internet with your XBox 360 then go to XBox Live and try to sign in a few times, this should create enough traffic to let the manager know that this is a gaming system.
