    Who provides the netgear, the internet provider, or you purchased it yourself?



    If you haven't already, power cycle the router. Also, make sure you run through the setup again to verify all the settings are properly setup, skipping through any sections that don't need to be changed.

Had the same problem found but from the start. Had to reinstall windows and check connectivity before installing norton. Then installed norton and it blocked it. just changed firewall settings so ip matched xbox as an allowed sharing device and it worked ok. But it would not do it before i reinstalled windows. a bit extreme but it worked. Now i can read all but my video files after a week of it working fine.lol

Prompted by consumer reaction to their February 2007 report, Kassa performed several tests with Xbox 360s from customers who claimed their Xbox had the problem. Kassa stabilized these consoles and positioned them at a location remote from contact by anyone. The results of the laboratory conditions test revealed that one of the nine tested Xbox 360s had spontaneously scratched a disc after five hours of gaming. The consoles were also tested standing upright, and the test revealed that three of the nine tested Xbox 360s significantly scratched discs. The video of the complete investigation, meticulously documenting the methodology, and all the relevant details of the tests, was made ready to be a

No, You do not have to change your xbox
No, You do not have to change you gamer tag
Yes, you can recover your profile

What your having is an internet issue, you must contact your internet service provider first. Xbox console connect with different connection as Static IP service (House Line) or Dynamic IP Service (Cable). Normally the person that installes your internet should help you configure all the equipment as they are trained for that service.

My xbox 360 cant get a valid ip adress from my router to ad an extender to share media with my pc.And my internet connection is fine.


You dont need an internet connection to add an extender, but also if you are doing the xbox live network test, make sure you turn on INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING otherwise you will not connect,run a pc - xbox , then media connection test, etc, also make sure you have the media centre open on your computer also. Good Luck.

Can i plug xbox live ethenet cable into cox cable modem


Yes you can plug it in directly, i dont think youll need a cross over cable, you can use a router so you can share the connection between several pieces of electronics, if you get a wireless router you wont need ny cables. A router routes data between ether net cable allowing each line access to what ever is on the network.

My xbox 360 wont take ip anymore


go to your router. find what your ip pool is. choose an ip that is in that pool. set up your xbox's internet manually. you need the gateway, DNS, and everything (you can find this on your router online) this will give your xbox a static IP and might fix your problem

You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.Was this solution helpful?
