My Zonet ZSR4134WE Wireless-N router doesn't connect to live. I've checked the MTU setting and everything. It works perfectly, until it gets to the "Xbox Live" part of the test, then it fails. Please help.

you need to open the ports on your router for xbox ports are TCP 88 UDP 88 UDP 3074 TCP 3074 UDP 53 TCP 53
first connect the xbox to the network and get the ip address (like 192.168.x.x) and then use the computer and login to router setup page and under firewall open these ports for the ip address of xbox . If you find a DMZ there , then enable it for XBOX ip address and reboot the router. ** imp: try to make a static ip address on xbox so when you restart the xbox teh ip address should not change -
to check what is the ip address provided from you router :- go command prompt (start ->run- > type cmd and hit enter) a black screen(command) type ipconfig you will find ip address of computer , so you can set the ip address of xbox like that -but just make the last number different (like ip address on computer then make ip address of xbox to perform this will help .. its all about the ports but be sure with ip address

Open port numbers UDP 88 and TCP 3074 pointing to the IP address of the XBOX. Make sure that the IP address of the XBOX is within the IP segment of the router. Ex. if your router has IP address your XBOX should have 192.168.1.x IP address.

Cant get xbox live connected

You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Ip address failed

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Xbox live

Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck
