Re: xbox 360 netgear router
That happens alot when one or more device (for instance, the xbox 360 and a cpu) are trying to use the same ip address
make sure you have the xbox 360 and all other devices (cpu's/printers) that are connected to the router set to aquire ip address automatically

1. If this is wireless I would try position the game box closer to the router or hard wire to the game box if possible. 2. You also may have a problem with bandwidth. The other computer is competing with your Xbox for bandwidth and the switch may not be able to supply it to both the device at the same time. 3. check if your router to see if you have QOS ( quality of service). Log into the router and check this feature to see if it is enabled.
When working with routers, CAT-5 cables are the more usual cable used. Your modem's Ethernet Port --- connect it via cable to the router's WAN input. Connect one of the router's LAN outputs to your computer's LAN input with another CAT-5 cable. Go through the appropriate Router Setup by putting http://192.168.1.1 into your Internet Explorer, with ' admin ' for User Name, and no password (just press Enter in Password frame). Once you are in to the router setup, you can select your Network Name (SSID) and then implement whatever Security you might want to use. You should be up and running by now, nhave lots of fun!
You need to log into the router setting using a pc.On the pc go to a browser like internet explorer and type the router address which is something like 192.x.x.x which you can obtain from its manual or sometimes is printed underneath the router...Now once you logged in then go to the wireless security tab and find your key or you can make a new wep key.Hope this helps.
The NETGEAR CD is for the router only. If you are connecting the XBOX to the router, you must configure the router so that it can give a connection to your XBOX. Call NETGEAR for that. You can try this also http://technicalsupport.blog.friendster.com
