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.

How to setup Xbox Live


You will need some kind of internet connection so you will use either an Ethernet cord or a Wifi adapter. After you connect to the internet through your Xbox 360 you will have a 1 month free Xbox live trial. When the trial ends you will either use an Xbox live silver subscription which doesn't allow you to play games on-line, use Netflix, etc. Otherwise you would need to buy an Xbox live gold pass which is a better deal as you purchase a longer subscription. Thank you

Xbox live


I would suggest that if you are xbox live unless you have fast internet dont use the internet for other things like your computer. Its most likely that there is not enough bandwidth for everything. If that doesnt work call you internet service provider and explain the problem to them and if they are a legitamate company they will help you out.

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

Connecting to xbox live failing


The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
