Question about NetGear Powerline Network Xet1001 (0606449057553) Network Adapter
I am using 3 Netgear XET1001 Powerline ethernet adapters to connect an XBox360 in the living room and another one in the bedroom to my home internet network. Until last week, they were working fine. Then in the morning, neither XBox could connect to the internet, returning a "failed to assign IP address" error. I can switch to wireless connection, but the transfer rate is very low. I have tried returning the adapters to factory settings, returing my whole network to factory settings, and manually setting each XBox's IP address, all with no success.

What I think is you unplgged them at the wrong times.

I tried to find this "Access Point Mode" on the WBR 1310 as suggested above and I couldn't. I spent hours on the phone with support from Xbox, D link, and my ISP Bell Sympatico's technical support trying to get my Strict NAT to Open. I finally got everything working and if you follow the instructions below in order, you will too. Here's what you should know if you have the D Link WBR 1310 and Bell Sympatico Internet.
1. Log into the router and under the Setup tab click on "Setup Wizard" then on the next page click on "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard" In step 1 leave the password unchanged and click next. On step 2 select your timezone. On step 3 this is important, select PPPOE setting. On the 4th step leave the Address Mode in Dynamic and enter the Username and password supplied to you by Sympatico.
Once you have configured your Router to work with the PPPOE settings that Bell uses (Most DSL providers use this setting) you should now get a Moderate reading when you do the Network test in the Xbox dashboard.
2. Now go here http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm and follow the instructions to setting up a static IP address on your computer.
3. After setting up a static IP address on your computer, go here http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/WBR-1310/Xbox_Live_360.htm and follow the instructions. Something you should keep in mind which isn't mensioned on this page is for each port you forward under the box that says "IP Address" do not put the IP address of your computer. You put in the new IP address of the Xbox 360 which was one of the 5 that was generated on the previous link. What you are doing is giving the Xbox 360 a new IP address and that new IP address needs to forward these port numbers to the Router.
4. Go into the Xbox dashboard and edit the Network settings. Under Basic Settings click on IP address and set it to manual. Now enter in the new IP address you chose for the Xbox 360. The subnet mask and the gateway is the same as your computer. (You can find these by clicking start, run, type in cmd then when the box comes up type in ipconfig/all
Under the DNS Settings it should be set to automatic and under Additional Settings leave them empty. Run the test in the dashboard and it should now be Open!
Also after reading several forums you don't need to enable DMZ host and leave the UPnP enabled. By default they are set this way anyway. Hope that helps.

Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

Sorry, forgot to mention this earlier. Maybe netgear offers free Live Chat tech support. Go to their web site.

First I would try reinstalling the driver for the FA120. DOwnload it here: http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d100006.asp
If you still have the same problem, they have a nice page here which gives you some good steps to go thru: http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_Web_files/N101250.asp
It *might* be spyware or virus activity... rebooting like that. I would suggest updating your virus and spyware definitions and scanning your computer also.
