Yes, both Playstation 2 Online and Xbox Live have been tested and are known to work with both game consoles online. Do make sure that you are using the latest version of the routers firmware. To get the latest version go to and click on Firmware. Make sure you download both the firmware and the instructions on how to update the router. If you are already running the latest version then you do not need to perform another upgrade. To check to see if you have the latest firmware version open a web browser and type into the address bar. Log into the router as instructed in the user manual. Once logged in choose Utilities over to the left and the choose Upgrade Firmware. It will tell you the current firmware version in there. If it is V1.20 or higher then you are OK.

    5) This will open up router interface(here we have to do some settings)
    6) In the left hand side column, click on FIREWALL.

    Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router

    If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

    Xbox Live Can't Connect to Friends

    Hi akemccarthy

    you may need to open the ports for the linksys Router aswell
    because the linksys links the belkin to the internet there using a shared connection

    once youve fowarded the ports properly check to see if you have enabled the UPNP on both of the routers if they have any

    heres a website showing how to port forward the ports you need opening

    Xbox live is not working it keeps coming up with 'you need an active connection to play online or system link matches' but my connection is fi and none of my friends can play as well?

    Suggestion: <b>MTU Error</b>

    This issue occurs if your router or the gateway is incompatible with Xbox Live, or if your router or the gateway has an incorrect MTU setting. Note: Xbox Live requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. We recommend that you try out the steps shown below.

    Things to try:
    1. Ensure that you have properly setup your connection to Live by using the Connectivity Wizard
    2. Visit the following Web site to determine whether you have the correct firmware version that has been certified as compatible:
    3. See the router or gateway instruction manual for information about how to change the MTU setting to 1364, to do this, or to determine whether your router supports this feature, see the router support documentation or contact support for your router device.
    4. If you share a connection with a router and a modem, try a direct connection without the router.

    For additional information on this topic refer to the following KB article:

    Getin online for my xbox360

    xbox live is pissy.

    You need 2 seperate live accounts for each one ot go online.

    You can't use one account on both. Their servers know.

    Other then that, as long as its hooked into a router and there's no ip conflicts, you shouldn't have a problem.
