Things You’ll Need

– Xbox console

– Ethernet cable

– PC with Windows 10

If you’re experiencing slow Wi-Fi connections, the Xbox One console can be connected to a PC via an Ethernet cable. Here’s how!

Connecting the Hardware

The Xbox gaming console should be connected to a PC with an Ethernet cable if you want to play games that are either disc or software-based. The Xbox One is a gaming console, while Windows 10 PC with Xbox app installed is your computer.

In order to connect the hardware, all you have to do is plug the Ethernet cable into the back of both devices. This will enable them to share resources and network connections.

If you’re using a laptop for your PC, you’ll need a USB Ethernet adapter in order to connect it directly to the Xbox One console. All laptops don’t have network ports built-in.

How to Stream Games from Xbox to PC with Windows 10

The Xbox One console is capable of streaming games to Windows 10 PCs, but it does require a few steps to get everything up and running. The first things you need are an Xbox Live Gold membership, a Windows 10 PC with the Xbox app installed, and an Ethernet cable.

Let’s start by connecting the Ethernet cable to the back of your Xbox One console. Plug the other end into the back of your computer. Next, go ahead and open up the Xbox app on your Windows 10 PC.

After that, sign in to your Microsoft account or create one if you don’t have one yet. Now, go ahead and select “Settings” from the menu bar at the bottom left corner of your screen to adjust some settings for streaming content from your Xbox One console to PC with Windows 10. Under “Network” click on “Ethernet.” There will be a button that says “Change Adapter Settings.” Click this button and select “Internet connection sharing” so that you can set up Internet Connection Sharing for your Ethernet connection to share it with your computer.

This will allow you to play games streamed from your console wirelessly on the TV via Wi-Fi without having to buy anything extra like an Xbox wireless adapter (Xbox 360 owners take note!).
