can not get my xbox to connect to my netgear 614v7 router am using a lan connection but it cant get a IP address from the router any ideas ??


Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.

Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074

It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:

A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.

1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2

# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP
Address on Your X-Box.


C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:

1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'.
9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50.
Click On 'Apply'.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.

Please repeat Steps 3 – 7 to configure the ports “UDP/TCP 3074”.

problem connecting with mates on fifa 09 on ps3.


here is the link for your port forwarding configuration:

here is the link for HOW IS PORT FORWARDING CONFIGURE:

http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101145.asp

Instructions for RP614, MR814, WGR101, WGR614, WGT624, WGT634U, WGU624, WGM124, or WPN824 These routers do port forwarding by assigning port numbers to a "service" that is associated with the application you want to run.
To Let an Application Use Port Forwarding
  1. Type the router's address in an Internet browser's address bar. (By default the router's address is 192.168.0.1). The Setup Wizard appears.
  2. Enter the router's username and password.
  3. Under Advanced, click Port Forwarding on the left menu bar.

  4. A Port Forwarding Screen (Varies Slightly by Router)

  5. From the Service & Game (or Service Name) pull down, select the service that you will host. The services the router knows about are listed here. If the service does not appear in the drop down, add a service as described in the next section, then return to this step.
  6. Enter the IP address of your local server in the Server IP Address box.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Click Logout to exit from router settings.
To Add a Service for These Routers
To define a service not in the Service Name list, determine what port numbers are used by the service.
  1. Click Add Custom Service.
  2. Enter the first port number in an unused Start Port box.
  3. If only one port number is to be forwarded, enter the same number in End Port. To specify a range of ports, enter the last port to be forwarded in the End Port box.
  4. Enter any name you choose for the service.
  5. Click Apply.

Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working


DNeser, Port forwarding and static routes isn?t the route to go down to fix this issue. I have an FR114 in a similar configuration and yours should work as well. -When connecting a hub to a router you should be using a certified, standard Ethernet cable, not a crossover. Make sure it?s certified for at least 100 Mbps. -If you are using port 8 on the hub to connect to the router make sure the Normal/Uplink button is set to Normal. -Are the Link and 100 Mbps LED green on both the hub and router ports you use to connect? If not try a known good cable; if that doesn?t work try different ports. Let us know how things work out and please don?t forget to rate this post.
