Cannot connect XBox360s to internet when using Netgear XET1001 Powerline adapters

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.

SOURCE: Netgear WG602 wireless router, Connection Local only !

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

Do this:
(in this order)

  1. Turn off the router.
  2. Turn off the modem.
  3. take out all the Ethernet cords from the router, EXCEPT the one coming from the modem
  4. Now turn the modem on.
  5. Wait for the lights, then wait about another minute for it to settle.
  6. Turn on the router, make sure the Internet,Lan,Wlan,etc lights are on and functional if it doesn't display a light let me know.
  7. Now depending on what your wireless network (SSID) is called try to connect to it. Go to Start>Network>Click Network And Sharing Center at the top>on the left select Manage Wireless Networks>now click add, if your network is already on the list shown select it and click remove otherwise click "Add" click "add network in reange of this computer" select your network name and click connect.
Now tell me the errors, like if it says connection limited,etc...


Thanks,
Cam

SOURCE: Can't connect to XBOX Live because of Strict Nat settings Netgear router WGR614

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.

SOURCE: netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address

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

Hi,

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.

How do i fix after modem reset


Basically, you unplug all of the Netgear Xe104 units, wait a minute, then plug the one nearest to the Router back into a wall socket first. Wait a few seconds then plug in a second Xe104 and give it a minute to "talk" to the first unit. Then plug other Xe104's in one at a time. Below you'll find the official troubleshooting steps which you should read carefully if the basic steps above do not resolve the problem.
Also, i should tell you that Powerline adapters such as yours have improved greatly in the last few years, and you can buy a pair of new ones that are very, very much faster than yours for a very modest cost. For example, TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT
or NETGEAR Powerline 500 1-Port Starter Kit (XAVB5201) or
ZyXEL PLA4225 4-Port 500 Mbps Powerline Gigabit

XE104 User Guide 4-2 Troubleshooting v1.0, September 2005

Power Light Not On Make sure that, if power to the AC power outlet is controlled by a wall switch, the wall switch is in the on position. Verify that the wall socket is live by disconnecting the XE104 85 Mbps Wall-Plugged Ethernet Switch and plugging in some other electrical product, such as a lamp or a hairdryer. If the error persists and you have confirmed the power outlet you are using is live, you have a hardware problem and should contact technical support.
HomePlug Light Not On If the power light is on but the HomePlug light is not, check the following: • Make sure that power is being provided to more than one PowerLine device. Another PowerLine device must be installed for successful communication across the PowerLine. • Verify that the network password is the same on all devices in the PowerLine network.
Ethernet Light is Off • Make sure that the Ethernet cable is plugged in properly at both ends. • Be sure you are using the correct cable on the router that the first XE104 is connected to. When connecting the router's Internet port to a cable or DSL modem, use the cable that was supplied with the cable or DSL modem. This cable could be a standard straight-through Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable. • On attached Ethernet device or network adapter card, check that the Link light is

A power surge during a storm can damage the powerline adapters, in a heartbeat. This is a very strong possibility and you may need to replace the adapter(s). If it fried one, it can fry them both. Was any other electroonics connected to the power outlets in the home damaged? If so, then you may be out of luck, and need to replace them both.

How to reset netgear xet1001


You can reset your Netgear router/wireless xet1001 router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.


For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless xet1001 router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.


Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.


Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

Feel free to get instant online Netgear router support athttp://www.vtechsquad.com/netgear-router-support/ to fix Netgear router/wireless router issues.

I have a Netgear XET1001 and when i pluged both adapters in cannot always connect to the internet. Sometimes it connects with no problems and other times i recieve "Unidentified Network, No Internet...


It's most likely Windows 7 cannot acquire an IP address from the network.

I suggest, when the connection is OK, you go to Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> Command prompt (Or hold the Windows key and press R then type "cmd" without the quotes and hit Enter)

In the command prompt, type ipconfig /all (a space before the / but none after).
Note down the following information :
IP address IPv4 (it should be something like 192.168.0.3 or 192.168.1.3),
Subnet mask (Generally it is 255.255.255.0),
Default Gateway (The first three digits will be like the IP address);
Close the Command prompt to tidy the screen up a bit.

Once done, right click on the Network icon in the Icon tray, and click on Open the Network and Sharing Center.
You should have a link named "Local area connection". Click on it then click on Properties. You should see a list in which there is "Internet Protocole version 4"
Make a double-click on the text "Internet Protocole version 4"

Choose the option "Use the following IP address" and enter the information as you have noted it before (IP Address, subnet mask, Default gateway).

You will notice that it will ask you for DNS servers. In the first one, enter the values for the Default Gateway. Click "OK", "OK", "Close"

How to turn Netgear WNR834B into a repeater


I don't think the Netgear WNR834B is capable of acting as a repeater but there is another solution. I would decide where I want to put the Netgear WNR834B for best coverage and then do the following. Go buy the Powerline Ethernet Adapters of your choice and put one at the main connection and plug a ethernet cable into a open switch port. Second go to where the repeater is to be located and plug the 2nd Powerline Ethernet Adapters in and connect to the Netgear WNR834B LAN port. Be sure to turn off DHCP on the Netgear WNR834B and assign a IP address that is not used. I normally use the highest address in the last octet so that I can remember for management. xxx.xxx.xxx.254. I hope this helps you.

The middle ight keeps blinking and it wont work how do i fix it


Blinking middle light indicates an issue with the powerline used between the powerline adapters. To isolate the issue plug both the poweline adapters in the same room and check the lights on them. If they work fine in the same room then the issue is with the powerline. You may have circuit breaker, surge protector between the powerline adapters and that will prevent you to get a connection.
Hope this helps.
