I would be very wary of doing so. if you do have connection problems, then read some of these to get an idea of what has to be done. there are others more able to state what the exact steps are to do the actual configuring of the ports and how to do it properly. if you don't know how to do the configuration, ask for additional help on the specific ports to be used.

Can't connect to xbox 360


If your XBOX can't connect to XBOX Live, then here is the trouble shooting procedure:

Your ISP (or router) might be blocking ICMP. From a PC connected to the router, open a command prompt and type
"ping www.xboxlive.co.uk" you should get the following

Pinging www.xboxlive.co.uk [213.171.195.53] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 213.171.195.53: bytes=32 time=45ms TTL=246

If you don't get the reply then check the firewall settings on your router for ICMP. If this is enabled, run the following command on the PC

tracert 213.171.195.53

You'll get a line of IP addresses, and if the trace doesn't complete, it will tell you where in the network ICMP is being blocked.


(These are the addresses for the UK, other countries will be similar)

Resetting problem


Hi!

The problem that you are experiencing is an intermittent internet connection. This has something to do with your router's MTU settings (Maximum Transmission Unit). Lowering it down can fix the issue. Some ISP's have their own dedicated MTU but some just use the default values. Its better to ask your ISP what the right MTU to be used on your router.

Lowering MTU

1. Access your router's Setup Page or Admin Page through Internet Explorer. Type http://192.168.1.1 press enter. It will prompt you for username and password. By default type admin for username and password.

2. If you have the router's setup page opened, look for MTU settings. Default value is Automatic (1500). Set it to Manual MTU and set the size to 1492 and save the settings. Also check if you have there an option like "Keep Alive" and you need to select that.

3. Reboot your router after reducing the size of MTU. Observe the connection again if the same problem persists.

Note: If the MTU value 1492 didn't help, try these values; 1463 and 1400

Good Luck

NETGEAR WGT624 Router Troubleshooting


Hello!

Inability to access certain websites is due to three main factors.
  1. Security on the web browser is set too high
  2. MTU not set on the router properly
  3. Secured websites
Lowering Down the Security Settings on Internet Explorer

Step 1: Double-click Internet Explorer and click Tools.
Step 2: Select Internet Options, click Security then Custom Level. A window similar to Step 3 will appear.
Step 3: Select Medium-low under the Reset to drop-down menu.

If this did not work, you may try to:

-- enable the MTU on the router.
-- forward port 443 on the router

Router problems.


Hi,

It may be you are directly connecting it without configuring from what the LAN IP of internet gateway and wireless router are conflicted.

solution: You change the LAN IP of wireless router then only you connect it to your LAN. otherwise detail your question for more understanding.
