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.

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.

How to unmute yourself on xbox 360


Hi there I can sort understand what you mean and I think this is the answer. If you cannot be heard normally in chat when online even though your mic is turned on or you have made sure that in preferences, you went in to audio settings and made sure you were not on mute? My guess is your having issues with your NAT settings as this can affect you chat settings when online. For example, xheck your NAT status and if it is MODERATE or STRICT then this is why. If you NAT is OPEN then it is because the players you are playing with have a NAT issue. MODERATE and STRICT NAT's will limit what you can do online, including chatting.
Hope this answers your question :)

Me and my gf are trying to use quickplay matchmaking but every time we look for other friends online she always get booted i have put her in the same party and tried in viting but it still boots here


This is because her NAT settings are strict, or moderate and not accepting information from other networks. Look into finding out how to open the NAT settings on your router/modem on Google. You must first find what type of router you have, and find out from there.

When i play modern warfare 2 online i go to look for other players and it doesent find any


This could be due to your internet connection or NAT type.

When your in the lobby by yourself were it displays your NAT type, if it says moderate or strict then use this link:
http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/kb.aspx?id=979000&lcid=1033

If your NAT type is open, it could be your internet connection.
You might want to upgrade your internet package if it is your connection and never try playing online with a dial up or phone line connection.

hope this helped.

XBOX 360 strict NAT problem


Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360


If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!
