Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi, I have an xbox 360 connected through an ethernet cord to my computer (ics), which is upstairs, and i have a wireless network card in the computer.I have a router downstairs hooked to a modem. i have two computers wireless connected and two other computers directly connected through ethernet. my router is a wrt54gsv4 running firmware dd-wrt. I have the newest model modem and I have Cox internet.
Im running windows xp service pack 3. my tcp/ ip are set to automatic.
The problem is My computer's local connection, that my xbox 360 is connected ICS to, is set to apipa (169.254.x.x)
that means i can't connect to xbox live.
Things I've tried:
ipconfig/release - ipconfig/renew
setting my tcp/ip for local and wireless. (only allows my xbox to connect and stops wireless)
reseting my router and modem.
restoring the settings on my router.
repairing connection (both wireless and local)
using a different cable.
calling xbox 360 support, calling microsoft (but i think i dont have a genuine windows) calling cox, and calling linksys
then at my friends house I tried: hooking my xbox 360 to a router through ethernet which was connected to a modem but i could not connect, my error was something like xbox 360 is connected, but cannot recieve xbox 360 live.
the funny thing is, using the same xbox 360, my friend put in his hard drive and it worked.
one guy i talked to was a little sketchy but he said that it wasnt connecting because the xbox was on the same ip as another... even though i was only on one, lol, but he may have had a point... so i changed my ip address for the xbox 360 and it still didnt work.
so what im trying to say is that im begging for help!
please please please help! :D
(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router...
you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wired
Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet... so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to the wireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type into your browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to find your router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd... then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router address will be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browser and login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize it because you will need it later...if you have not changed the password its usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once you are logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports for your xbox 360 for it to be able to connect to xbox live with an open NAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once you get to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports for best performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forward these ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88 UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled... find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to 192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come in handy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go to network settings and manually change your settings... so if you have your ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me... change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computers that connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses... so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it so there arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told you to minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the command box into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in th e dns settings... first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are done with that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computer to your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... network connections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wireless connection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... and click on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

You need to set static ip's for the xbox 360 and the lan that is on the pc, easy to bride the two connections on your computer, then set static on the lan that the 360 is plugged in to, example:
360's static settings:
ip: 192.168.1.14 sub: 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 ------------------------------- computers settings:
ip 192.168.1.15 sub 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
