A. Determine the IP Address and MAC Address of the Xbox. Note: You may find the IP address and MAC address of your Xbox on your Dashboard's Network Settings. Please refer to your Xbox manual for more information on this. B. Reserve the IP address. 1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator. 2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key. 3. For security reasons, the router has its own user name and password. When prompted, enter admin for the User name and password for the Password, both in lower case letters. Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it. 4. When the setup page opens, click on LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab. 5. Click on Add under Address Reservation. 6. Under Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add from the Address Reservation Table. 7. If the computer you want is not on the list, please click on the Refresh button to update the table. 8. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table, please type in the IP Address, MAC Address, and Device Name of the computer you wish to add. 9. Click the Add button when done. C. Forward the ports. 1. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced. For older firmware version, click on Port Triggering tab or just click Port Forwarding on Please select the service type. 2. Click Add and another window will pop up. 3. Type Xbox for Name. Set the radio button to Enable. 4. On Outgoing Port Range, set the Start Port and End Port to 3074. 5. On Incoming Port Range, you also have to indicate 3074 for Start Port and End Port. Save the settings by clicking on Apply. 6. Please repeat steps b to e and indicate 88 for Start Port and End Port. Then change the Name to Xbox2. Note: If it still does not work, you may try these other options: D. Lower down the MTU. 1. Access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2 above). 2. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab. 3. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300. 4. Click on the Apply button. E. Enable UPnP. 1. Go to UPnP tab of the router. 2. Enable UPnP and then save the settings by clicking on Apply. Some websites and devices require UPnP or Universal Plug and Play. Just make sure that it is enabled on the router. F. Upgrade the firmware. Note: Follow the steps below if the above troubleshooting still do not allow Xbox to connect using the router. 1. Please verify the router version and model either underneath or at its side panel. 2. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and please select the model of the router. 3. Click the appropriate version of the router. 4. Select the link of the latest firmware. Click the button Right-click and Save to Download. Save the file to the Desktop. Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with Wired or Ethernet connection only. 5. Before upgrading, please write down all current settings since you need to enter them manually. 6. Using the computer hardwired on the router, please launch Internet Explorer and access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2). 7. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade. 8. Click on Browse and locate the upgraded file in your Desktop. Then click on Upload. 9. Please wait for the router to reboot. After a successful firmware upgrade, you need to reset the router. E. Reset the router. 1. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. (this note should go before the step to Reset the router) Note: Resetting the router will erase all the settings so it needs to be reconfigured afterwards. The router can be reconfigured using the setup CD or by manual configuration.

In order to do that you would have to plug this into your xbox 360, not your computer. HOWEVER, Microsoft only supports their own wireless adapter for the xbox 360 .... this one: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-360-Wireless-Network-Adapter-Networks/dp/B000B6MLV4

I have also heard that wireless gaming can have lesser results. But if you want to do Xbox Live wireless, you will have to have a router and Microsoft's XBOX wifi adapter shown in the link above.

To connect to Xbox live, your best bet is to (if you dont have one) get a router, connect it to your Internet modem, and plug it into the xbox 360 using an ethernet cable.

To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to http://kb.netgear.com to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

Can't play xbox 360 and have computer onlin on Netgear Router


1. If this is wireless I would try position the game box closer to the router or hard wire to the game box if possible.
2. You also may have a problem with bandwidth. The other computer is competing with your Xbox for bandwidth and the switch may not be able to supply it to both the device at the same time.
3. check if your router to see if you have QOS ( quality of service). Log into the router and check this feature to see if it is enabled.
