How do i unlock my net gear router?

Last night we hooked up the router for our sons xbox 360 game consol so he can play on xbox live. At first, the xbox picked up the wifi signal and would conect to the internet, but not xbox live. when it would pick up the router it showed an open signal. Today it shows the router as being locked, and won't pick up anything. How do i get the router to be unlocked like it was when we first hooked it up?

If you mean reset to default settings. Push and hold the reset for 30 seconds or so and release.

SOURCE: Please help I can't conect to Router MR814V2 with wireless card Encore ENPWI-G2

Hi,

On Windows XP, the OS will prevent a connection to an unsecured wireless network such as what you have.

You can try:
Double click on the red WiFi icon, click on the "Change the order of preferred networks",  Click on "Add", type in the Network name (SSID) of your router (you can get this by using the connected PC and log in to the NetGear's Webbased Interface), set Network Authentication to "Open", set Data encryption to "Disabled",  OK, reboot your PC.

Alternately, you can set the PC where the Encore ENPWI-G2 card is connected to manual configured settings rather than Auto obtain. Follow what is in the connected PC's settings except that the  last number of the IP add be different (ex. connected PC > 192.168.0.100, set the unconnected PC to 192.168.0.101, all the rest subnet, default dns be the same. Of course the 101 must not be in use, if double IP add, change to 102).

In some instances, you may need to use the Encore WiFi configuration utility (normally comes with the drivers in the installer CD) rather than the Windows buil-in WiFi Config utility,

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.

SOURCE: Can't pick up wireless internet through router

You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.

SOURCE: I am trying to get xbox live working on my xbox 360

Okay so Here is the very simple solution. Go to your router page (192.168.1.254) and select Custom Services. Delete every port opening service you have made. Then Define a Custom Service lets just call it Xbox A and Open ports 80 - 65535 for TCP with the base host port 80 Do tthis twice for both TCP and UDP options. Enable the services on your Xbox (It needs to be Connected and have a static IP adress) It can take about 15 minutes to open all the ports to be patient. Your Xbox also needs to have a static IP adress. Lastly set the routers firewall on low and give it a shot. It worked for me!

The x`box was saying it can't read the disc. contact u


If you have the new kinect xbox 360 dashboard and you cannot get your xbox 360 console to read your game discs or DVDs, you are not alone. An update that was recently applied through Xbox Live makes your discs unreadable.
Remove the update by navigating to:
System Settings->Memory->STOP HERE!
You should see your Hard Drive highlighted, if not move to it and then enter this on your controller:
X,LB,RB,X,LB,RB,X
Delete System Update will appear, make sure there is no media in your disc drive and select YES. You system will restart and appear to hang DO NOT TURN IT OFF OR MESS WITH IT!
After a couple minutes your system will start and you should be able to play discs again.

My wireless computer will not work while son uses xbox live


It seems as if somehow you assigned the 360 to the same IP address as your wireless router. On any of the devices attempt to release the current IP and grab a new one.

Xbox has been connecting no problem via netgear router. Suddenly it has stopped and cant go live any more. Dont know how to work out if it is xbox wireless adaptor or netgear router.


Do you have any other computers or game consoles hooked up the netgear router? if the other computers etc. can connect to the Net via your router, then it sounds like your Xbox adaptor might have failed.

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
