On the back of the router there is a small hole, it's the reset switch insert a pen or similar object in the opening and hold it down for 15 seconds this will reset the router to the original default settings. If this does not work maybe it is fried! But check ALL your cables and connections as well I've had cat5 cables go bad out of the blue , replaced them and I was good to go again! How long have you had the router? Is it still under warranty?

Where do i hook up my x box 2 the computer


It's quite simple actually. All you need to do, is buy one eithernet cable and have a router. (continued below)
Step 1. If it's an Xbox 360 it would've come with one ethernet cord. If it's an original Xbox, then you'll need to buy 2 instead of the intended 1.


Step 2. Make sure the ethernet cable from your modem is in the back plugged into the router, also make sure that another cable is plugged into the back of your computer and also to the back of your router (thats what one of the cables is for).


Step 3. Now take the second cable (the one that you bought) or the cable came with the xbox system and plug that into the back of your system into the ethernet slot.


Step 4. Plug the cable you just plugged into your system into a third open slot on the back of the router and Voila! you are ready to "Pwn The Noobs" on a 'lil XBL. Mind you that Xbox Live does cost money ($50 or so a year). Now you can play with friends, transfer pictures or movies or music, depending on if its an original or xbox 360!...I hope this helps
~Mr. Lonely~


p.s. - You will need to do a few more things: go to system setup on the xbox dashboard (all the way to the right on the screen where your profiles are kept) then go to computer setup. Then you will get a code to enter at www.xbox.com/pcsetup



The above will only hook up the Xbox 360 console to the INTERNET by routing the internet to it, a router just splits the internet and assigns internal IP addresses in order to allow internet use by both the computer and the Xbox console. If you meant how to hook up the console to "Browse" its hard-drive/DVD drive/etc., it is not quite as easy. You should look up "Xbox 360 hotswapping" in google or something and that will show you how to view the hard drive contents.

Router quite working. Wireless does not work nor


Follow this procedure :
  1. Turn off all components on your network - computer, router, modem, printers and any wifi laptops
  2. With the ethernet cable connected only between the modem and the router TURN THE POWER TO THE ROUTER ON and let it boot up.
  3. Turn on the modem and let it boot up to all lights on.
  4. Connect / boot up any and all other components on your network.
Keep this order handy in case of a power outage. Best of successes!

Linksys WRT160N V3 Firewall issues


You need to check first if it is the program that is causing this or not. If you have a computer without the program, have it connected to the router. If it connects it may be the program. Check if switching cable may help. IT may be a faulty cable. It may also be something in your PC that is causing this one.

you may need to reset router to factory settings. look in documents or their website for instructions that apply to your router.
Also, I assume you have everything powered off when switching cables.

PROBLEMS SYNCING MY ROUTER TO MY XBOX. PLEASE HELP!


Ok plug everything in and Reset the router and modem wait a few minutes and try again.
Verify that that DATA cable at the Xbox's location works with a PC could be a simple bad data jack or patch cord. Do you get a connection failure like this? MTU failure?

The MTU(Maximum Transmission Unit) failure when testing the xbox's connection can be do to a few things because Xbox live requires a minimum MTU setting of 1364. Sharing a slower internet connection with other PC's in the house can cause this error, The incorrect MTU setting in your routers programming can cause this error, The lack of firmware updates to your router can cause this error, an older modem from your service provider can cause this. Old or worn network cables and jacks and or RG(coax) cables if you have cable internet could cause this. Your Router or gateway could be incompatible with Xbox live.

Try a direct connection to the Xbox without a router and reset your modem before doing it. If your able to connect then you know its the router. If not you know its the modem or cables or jacks or even your Xbox if you havent tested it elsewhere.
You can tell your ISP to mail you the newest updated modem... sometimes they will have a guy just drop one off.

This is trial and error.
