Is the pc you are using connected wirelessly? Only computers connected with a cable are allowed to access the configuration page.

If you have a computer connected to it (possibly wireless) find out the ip address by opening command prompt and typing ipconfig . then there should be something labeled default gateway. Copy and paste the default gateway into your browser and hit enter. It should ak you for a username and password, type in the on that you set it up with. Now, you need to find out the IP address of the xbox, and then navigate through the router config and find where to forward the port. From there it should be pretty self explanator. Hope it works!

I have a netgear WGR14 v9 router and my xbox360 wont let me play NBA game because i have NAT is strict and i need to open NAT. I have tried everything i can read on it and nothing seems to work.......can...

Plug the AP+4 directly into your computer via Ethernet cable. This is usually a yellow cable that is provided with the AP+4. Plug on end of that cable into the computer you are setting up the AP+4 and the other end into one of the four numbered ports on that AP+4. (Note: Make sure to have your computer off. If your computer has a wireless connection to your network disable it. If you computer has a static IP be sure to set it to DHCP.)

Next, open up your web browser (we recommend using Internet Explorer or Firefox). Delete the address that is currently present in the Address Bar.

Once the address is deleted, type into the Address Bar.
Press Enter.

2 You will now be logged into the Status Page of the AP+4. On the left side, click the option that reads Setup Wizard.

Click on the Next button to get started on the wizard.

3 You will now be on "Choosing an Operating Mode" screen. Here you will select Ethernet Client.

Click on Next to continue.

4 The next page is "Selecting a Time Zone." You can skip this and click Next to continue.
5 This will bring up the "LAN Interface Setup" screen.

On this page, you will need to change DHCP to Client. Once that is done, click Next to continue.

6 You will now be on "Setting up Internet Connection."

WAN Access Type needs to be set to DHCP Client. Once it is set to DHCP Client, you can click Next to continue.

7 The "Configuring the Wireless Network" screen will open.

This is where you will need the SSID and Channel of your network. Change the current SSID to match the one provided by your wireless router. Also, change the Channel to match that of your router as well. Once those are changed, you can also change Wireless Operation to Client. Click Next to continue.

8 This will take you to the final page of the Setup Wizard "Setting Up Wireless Security."

Here is where you need the Encryption type and Passphrase/Network Key. Enter the Encryption to match that of your router, if applicable. If you do have encryption, you will have a Network Key or Passphrase, depending on the Encryption type. Select Passphrase if you use WPA or WPA2. Select Hex if you are using WEP. Once the Network Key or Passphrase has been entered, click Finish.

9 Power down your computer and remove the AP+4. Plug the AP+4 into the Ethernet port of your gaming console. Follow the instructions that came with your gaming console to set up your Internet connection. The AP+4 will appear to be a Wired Connection to your Gaming Console.

Since installing a new router, it will not let us access msn yahoo, or youtube, it knocks us off within seconds, it is exactly the same router as before just a newer one, on the old one we had no problems...

It sounds like you have more than one issue going on. One possible issue with the yahoo and msn messenger could be that you have port/app filtering enabled. In order to fix this, you must go onto your router's configuration (the webpage for its settings), and go check the Port/Application & Gaming filter area to see if any ports are not permitted (since I don't know exactly what router you have, I can't tell you exactly what to go to, but I can give you a general idea of what to look for). If that is the case, simply disable the port filters, and save your settings. If that doesn't fix the problem, then make sure that use don't have parental controls, or Access policies enabled that deny you from using those applications. The youtube problem sounds like a different problem all together. It could be anything from a bad internet connection, to slow internet, to a setting on your browser preventing it from working. My suggestion for that would be to try to access other websites using your same web browser, and then try to access youtube from a different web browser. If you can access youtube from another web browser, but can access the other pages from the first web browser, your problem may be in the browser with that specific page. On the other hand, if you can access youtube, and cannot access any webpage on the first browser, there probably a problem with that browser in general. If you cannot access youtube with either, but can access other websites, then its probably not you browser.
If you still have a problem after following these steps, I would recommend contacting your ISP, or having someone come and look at your network in person.

I need to open ports so my game can access the internet

Make sure at first your windows firewall (or other)allows traffic for dragon age. Second each router has a web interface, run 'ipconfig' command from the command prompt (run button -> cmd, then use the gateway address and put that into your web browser. Every router is different, but usually there is a security tab for tunneling. You'll want to set your PC to a static IP like and tunnel those ports to the PC. If you dont, then when the DHCP releases the IP address your PC could end up with some other IP addr then the router wont work.

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: or (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    Configuration not accesible

    Hi There.

    You may try to ping the IP Address of your router just to check if it is responding to pings. If you still can, check if there is proxy settings enabled on your browser, you may try to disable it by going to Internet options> connections> LAN settings.

    Or try to use another browser to access your router. Lastly, sometimes, it does really work when you do it via RUN command on the computer.

    Hope this works

    Connecting to Xbox Live through my Dynex-E401 Router

    You would think that Xbox 360 would be perfectly compatible with UPnP. They should be communicating with each other just fine, (UPnP talks to NATPMP to automatically open and forward appropriate ports), and the game's datastream is probably entirely connectionless aside from the initial handshake (UDP).

    To log into your router console, type "" into your browser, for the username enter "admin" and do not put in a password. To enabled Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), click ADVANCED and on the left side click DMZ.

    You will need to know the internal IP address to the XBOX360, which can be found on the "CABLE TEST" or "LAN" page in the router console.

    If you find that you cannot log into the router console with the supplied information, you need to press the little reset button with a pen for like 10 seconds.

    If you cannot reach the router console at then you need to go to Network Connections in windows and find out the "Default Gateway IP" which is the router's internal IP.

    The XBOX360's internal IP address will be in the same format as your computer's (if you only have one computer, the XBOX360's IP will probably be and your computer's should be All of these are default values. You can change them in the router console as you please.
