Unable to connect to Xbox Live!

I just bought an iMac OS X 10.5.5 with Airport Extreme built into the system.  I also have a Speedstream 5260 ADSL modem connected to the ethernet port on the back of my iMac.  I am attempting to wirelessly connect to my xbox live (which does have a network adapter attached). When testing settings in Xbox, the network is detected; however, I am unable to pass the IP test.  I receive an error message stating the DHCP server could not negotiate a lease.  Any solutions?

Are you connecting both imac and xbox to the internet at the same time? is your adsl modem a modem/router? and does it have wireless capability?.. if all answer are yes.

assign static ip/subnet mask/default gateway and dns on xbox, then forward 88/3074 on your modem/router.

Not connecting wirelessly to mac


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

Depending on what type of Internet service you are using, your Intel iMac comes standard with an Airport Extreme wireless card built in. As a result, if you are unable to connect wirelessly to the Internet, you will need to try this:

- Click on the Apple menu icon, located in the upper left corner of your screen and select System Preferences from the drop down menu.

- Now locate Network from within System Preferences.
- In the side window, make sure you see Airport and check also to see that it is turned on. If it is, then check the left side window to see if the AirPort connection is active.

Keep in mind, your modem or connection router of course, has to be able to provide wireless connectivity, otherwise, if you do not, there will be no need to try connecting via your AirPort Extreme card.

If your network has been physically set as a wireless network, then just turning on the AirPort card in System Preferences>Network will start discovering all networks within its range, including your own network.

So whether you are using an Airport Extreme, Express or a 3rd party (non-Apple-branded) router, you should be able to connect wirelessly.

If you are still unable to connect with these basic steps, here are a few articles you will need to review from Apple Support informational database:
Requirements for wireless Internet access with AirPort
Airport & Bluetooth interference (for connectivity issues)

So here are some basic steps and resources you can try.

If you have more questions please feel free to post a comment.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

Wireless facility does not work LED does not illuminate. I have tried to get access to web site


The connection to your modem could be faulty.
Ring your ISP and get them to test the connection to your ADSL modem.
Also do you have ADSL line filters on all your phones?
The phone connection to the ADSL modem does NOT use a ADSL filter.

Connect one of your computer to the LAN port of the speedstream, access the configuration page of the speedstream (example 192.168.1.254) then under advance tab there a MAC filter there that you change the MAC address.

Belkin Router - Network works for 5 minutes than everything loses internet capability.


hi,

           This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in  other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE,  but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.

 

plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )

 

 

 

The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:

Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:

SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)

If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.

For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.

UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.

 

 

 

PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE

 

REGARDS.

Can't get modem to work


speedstream 5260 modems don't have a built-in pppoe in it, so with your win xp OS you just have to make a broadband connection using the new connection wizard by either going to control panel > network connection > new connection wizard or in internet explorer, click on tools menu > internet options > connection tab > click on setup button. follow the wizard and type your username & password on your registered internet account. also make sure you delete your previous broadband connections (if you have set up one before) to avoid conflict with the new connection.
the set up is different if you are using lower versions of windows OS, (like win2000, ME, 98 SE/ FE or 95? ) or Mac 9 you may need to install a pppoe software such as Enternet 300, WinPoet, etc.
