How do you link 3 Xbox ones together?

Answered by Cody Janus

To link three Xbox One consoles together, you would need to create a local area network (LAN) and connect the consoles using Ethernet cables. This allows for multiplayer gaming and sharing of game content between the consoles. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Ensure that each Xbox One console is connected to a TV or monitor and has a stable internet connection.

2. Connect all three consoles to the same network router using Ethernet cables. You may need additional Ethernet cables if they are not already provided with the consoles.

3. Once connected, turn on each console and navigate to the “Settings” menu.

4. In the “Settings” menu, go to “Network” and then select “Network settings.”

5. Select “Advanced settings” and note down the IP address and MAC address of each console. These details will be required later.

6. On one of the consoles, go to the “Settings” menu and select “Network.”

7. Choose the option “Network transfer” and enable the checkbox for “Allow network transfer.”

8. Repeat step 7 for the other two consoles, ensuring that network transfer is enabled on all of them.

9. Now, on each console, go to the “Settings” menu and select “Network.”

10. Choose the “Network settings” option and select “Advanced settings.”

11. In the advanced settings, select the “Alternate MAC address” option.

12. Enter a unique MAC address for each console. You can change the last two digits of the MAC address to differentiate them. Make sure to note down these unique MAC addresses.

13. Once the MAC addresses have been changed and noted down, restart each console.

14. After restarting, go to the “Settings” menu on each console and select “Network.”

15. Choose the “Network settings” option and select “Test network connection” to ensure that all three consoles are connected to the LAN.

16. Once the network connectivity is confirmed, you can start playing multiplayer games with your friends or share game content across the consoles.

It’s important to note that while connecting three Xbox One consoles together allows for multiplayer gaming and content sharing, there may be limitations depending on the game or specific features. Some games may have restrictions on the number of players in a session or require additional licenses or subscriptions.

It’s also worth mentioning that creating a LAN setup with multiple consoles can sometimes be challenging due to network configurations and settings. If you encounter any issues or need further assistance, it’s recommended to consult the Xbox support website or reach out to their customer support for detailed guidance.

I hope this helps you in linking your three Xbox One consoles together for an enhanced gaming experience!
