Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Can't connect to Xbox live but internet test passes

I am attempting to pass the Xbox Live connectivity test on a Xbox 360 so I can sign up again. Using a direct connection to a Netgear router (WSG614v7) and a DSL modem (Motorola 2210-02-1002). I have setup portforwarding on 3074, 88, and 53. I have tried allowing DMZ on the static ip assigned to the Xbox (10.0.0.8) as well as just letting Upnp alone handle it. I updated the router to latest firmware, and attempted to set the modem to "bridge mode" (not sure if i suceeded?). Everything else on the local network works fine. A laptop on that libg cable surfs fine. Just not xbox live connection when testing. It fails and says "connected to internet but cannot connect to Xbox live" ... suggests checking for open ports.

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?


For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here to upgrade your firmware.
  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit www.xbox.com.

    I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


    Please try the following steps below;

    To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
    1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
    2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
    3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
    4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
    5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
    6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
    7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
    8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
    If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

    Hope this helps!

    D-link connection to xbox live . works fine on computers


    We had a problem with our Xbox doing this, take a cable from one of the comptuers and then try to hook it up. If that don't work, look at the MTC or the username and password information for the router which you might need on the router. Do you need a username and pass for the router? If not then you can connect directly without putting the pass into xbox. This may help, but that was what the problem was on ours and Idk if it will work for yours.

    My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


    hi,
    in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
    for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

    Network connection failed when trying to connect to xbox live


    You may want to try the following:

    Use a different ethernet cable.
    Reset the router and xbox by powering them down for at least a minute.
    Run the connection wizard under Xbox Live.
    If the test passes you should be connected to the web.
    If not you might have a problem with either the router or the xbox.

    Xbox live test fails and so does update


    you need to open the port that the update is trying to go through. the easiest way is to turn your firewall off, but this opens up your security. another way is to forward the correct port through port forwarding on your router. findout which port xbox live uses and put in the information to the router

    XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router


    I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.

    I bet this helps!

    XBox 360 not compatible with Motorola WR850G


    Motorola WR850G router may fail to connect to xbox live after update to firmware 6.1.4. I was able to correct the problem. My solution was
    Go in xbox >> network config >> IP and use Static option. Set the xbox to an IP in the range allowed by your router configuration. The router IP config range is found in the router config web >> Lan section. Then I set my router config >> Routing >> DMZ IP Address setting to the xbox ip I just assigned to my xbox. Restart router using the restart button on the Basic page of router config. Restart your xbox and attempt to login to xbox live. This solved my problem.

    As a side note, on the xbox networking test page, the xbox live status message will allows show they are aware of a problem with xbox live login. This is a lie. For that reason I postponed trying to fix my router problem thinking it was an xbox issue, it is not. Once you finally connect to xbox live you will still notice this incorrect message remains.
