Connecting to Xbox Live Using a Windows PC or Mac

Not at home? Trying to connect your Xbox One to Xbox Live by using your PC or Mac's internet connection? If so, you've come to the right place! Below are the steps you will need to setup these connections.

Connecting using a Windows PC
Use Windows Internet Connection Sharing.
You can use Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection between your computer and your Xbox One console. If you do this, both the console and the computer can access the Internet at the same time.

Create a Network Bridge Connection.
If you have a laptop computer with both wired and wireless network adapters, you can use your laptop to connect your Xbox One console to Xbox Live. This type of connection is called a network bridge connection. This connection is quick and easy, but you can’t access the Internet on the laptop when it’s connected to your console.

Connecting using a Mac
Connect your Xbox One Console to Xbox Live Using a Mac.
If you want to connect your Xbox One console to Xbox Live and don’t have a router, you can connect through your Mac computer. If your Mac is connected to the Internet and has an AirPort Card installed, you can share its Internet connection with your console. All you need to do is connect your Mac to your console, turn on Internet sharing, get your computer’s DNS server address, and then set the network settings on your console.
