XBOX 360 does not come with built-in VPN interface, you will need either a router or a PC to connect a VPN on this device.

To set up LimeVPN on XBOX 360, follow the step given below:

Connect XBOX 360  using a Wireless Router running LimeVPN:-

In order to run the LimeVPN on your XBOX 306, you need to first set it up on your router (DDWRT router is the most suitable). Refer this articles to setup LimeVPN on different routers.

1. Now that your wireless router is configured with LimeVPN, switch on your XBOX 306.
2. Press the Guide button on your controller to enter the menu.
3. Go to the Settings tab, select System Settings.

4. Select Network Settings and choose your Wireless Network.

5. Enter the WPA key (you can find it on your router as well).

Now you are ready to enjoy the LImeVPN services on your XBOX 360 device.

Using a Laptop running LimeVPN and connected as a Wi-Fi hotspot :- 

1. First, make sure you have LimeVPN running on your laptop. Refer these articles to set up LimeVPN on your laptop.
2. Once your VPN is connected, all you need to do is convert your laptop into a Wi-Fi hotspot. To set up your computer as a Wi-Fi hotspot, you first need to verify whether your computer’s physical wireless adapter supports this feature. To check, follow the steps below:

2. Select “Run as administrator”.
3. The command prompt window will open on your screen. Write NETSH WLAN SHOW DRIVERS and click Enter.
