you may have to open a port that you xbox can use to connect to xbox live
Connect only your Xbox and computer to the Internet.
Disconnect all other devices. This is done to easily determine the
Xbox's IP address, which is used in the Port Forwarding process.
Open the Windows Command Prompt from the Start Menu. Click "Start > Run...," then type in "cmd" and hit "OK."
Enter "ipconfig" n the command prompt. A list of IP addresses pop ups. Write down the IP address of your computer.
Open your router setup utility
through a web browser. Use the given directions from your router
manufacturer to do so. Generally, the configuration page is opened by
inputting the router IP address into the URL in the following format:
http://123.456.7.8/ (where the IP Address number is unique to the router
Open the "DCHP Client List"
section of the router setup utility. This lists the devices currently
connected to the Internet through the router, which is your computer and
Xbox. Write down your Xbox's IP address (in this case, the one that is
not your computer's IP address).
Navigate to the "Virtual
Servers" or "Port Forwarding" menu in your router setup utility. Most
manufacturers have a side menu on their router setup utility, which is
generally a section under your "Firewall" settings.
Input the following port numbers and your Xbox's IP address into your router's port forwarding configuration:
Placing these numbers in the port forwarding menu opens up the
required ports that your Xbox needs to connect to the Xbox LIVE network.
Save this configuration.
Start up Xbox LIVE to check your
connection. If you have no problem connecting, then you have
successfully forwarded the required ports.
you need to open the ports on your router for xbox
first connect the xbox to the network and get the ip address (like 192.168.x.x) and then use the computer and login to router setup page and under firewall open these ports for the ip address of xbox . If you find a DMZ there , then enable it for XBOX ip address and reboot the router.
** imp: try to make a static ip address on xbox so when you restart the xbox teh ip address should not change -
to check what is the ip address provided from you router :-
go command prompt (start ->run- > type cmd and hit enter)
a black screen(command) type ipconfig you will find ip address of computer , so you can set the ip address of xbox like that -but just make the last number different (like ip address on computer 192.168.2.5 then make ip address of xbox to 192.168.2.6)
perform this will help .. its all about the ports but be sure with ip address
Open port numbers UDP 88 and TCP 3074 pointing to the IP address of the XBOX. Make sure that the IP address of the XBOX is within the IP segment of the router. Ex. if your router has 192.168.1.1 IP address your XBOX should have 192.168.1.x IP address.
Yes you can run two Xboxes on LIVE at the same time, provided you have a separate LIVE account for each console, and different IP addresses for each Xbox. Assign static IP addresses for your xboxes from within the router's setup page.
The DNS is your routers ip address. the secondary DNS is 0.0.0.0 or thats what mine was
you can go to your routers website and enter it manually. Type 192.168.1.1 this might be it or try 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.100
when it shows your routers info write it down and then put it in your xbox's network by entering it manually. btw the secondary DNS is just 0.0.0.0 if it doesn't give you two. the gateway is just your routers ip address.
what else you can do is do port forwarding. But the xbox is not a static ip address so it'll change. what you can do is when it says to put your ip address in your xbox put all the numbers the same as the routers ip address BUT DON'T USE THE SAME LAST NUMBER! so like if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 you can use 192.168.1.23 i use 192.168.2.15 but you may not have the 2 in yours.
if u dont hav e a router that is ur problem. to get ur xbox 360 to connect to vista media center you cannot connect an ethernet cord directly to ur 360, u must have ur computer hooked to a router with one ethernet cord and a whole different ethernet cord connecting to the same router the computers hooked up to. after you do that go to ur vista media center, turn active sharing on, make sure your router is connected to the internet. then go to ur xbox 360 and follow the on screen instruction from the the connect to media center screen.
if your wanting to connect to xbox live and stuff like that, and u enter ur ip address and security information and it tells u that the ip adress u entered is already in use by another device, and that ur xbox 360 needs to be assigned one, do this: simply go to were u put in ur ip address and set it to get the address automaticly (or in other words choose automatic). then go to test connection (ur router should automaticly assign ur xbox 360 an ip address) and ur router should connect to the internet. if it connects to the internet but not xbox live then u have not yet sign up for an xbox live account.
by the way when u make an xbox live account please send me a friend request. my xboxc live account name is: ghdude22
