Re: connecting our existing linksys system to an XBox...
That's actually "SSID" (a letter I, not a number 1) and means "site service ID." It's the identifying string a wireless access point broadcasts on the radio channel so you can pick it out from the others. You assign the SSID to your wireless router if you're setting up a network, or enter that name if you're being asked what network you want to connect to when several might be detected.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your Linksys is still in its factory condition, admin is the Password, leave the user blank. However, the issue may be the firmware version according to the Linksys site. Go to this link and follow the procedures for setting up your Linksys router and pay special attention to section ii and follow the link provided to ensure your firmware is up to date. If you don't want to update the firmware, then turn off uPNP and change the MTU setting to manual and 1500.
The only way to get Dolby 5.1 audio out of the Xbox will be via fiber optic cable from the Xbox to a Dolby Digital amplifier - which will output a decoded 5.1 signal to a 6 channel amplifier and 5 speakers and one sub-woofer. I doubt the Logitech speaker system has a Dolby 5.1 decoder built in with the amplifier for under $100, but I can't say for sure. If the Logitech has a an optical (or TOSLink) input, connect it to the Xbox and follow the instructions below.
To configure your audio settings, follow these steps:
Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings.
In the Console Settings area, select Audio.
In the Audio Settings area, configure settings for analog output or digital output:
Analog output settings:
Dolby Pro Logic II: Select this setting for stereo systems or Dolby Pro Logic II-compatible systems.
Mono: Select this setting for systems that do not support stereo output.
Note If you have connected to Xbox LIVE and downloaded any AutoUpdates, the Mono option will not be available.
Digital output settings:
Digital Stereo: Select this setting to use digital stereo output.
Dolby Digital 5.1: Select this setting to use Dolby Digital output.
Enable WMA Pro: Select this setting to enable WMA Pro pass-through if your receiver supports the WMA Pro format.
Note You must use one of the following cables to support digital output:
I can tell you that you are not alone. I cannot tell you the exact reason why but I am hardwired in myself and experience the exact symptoms you have scribed. I believe that it is simple a Xbox Live service problem. I work for a cable internet provider and have tried everything that can possibly be done to tweak and tune a connection and it still occurs.
I am not sure what the use as the communication protocol but if it is "SIP" based that would explain alot about why we are constantly being booted from party's.
I would definatally recommend hardwiring your xbox to a router though. You could be having wireless channel overlap from a neighbor that could me dropping the connection. Another possibility is if you have any file sharing utilities "bit torrent" ect. running, that will cause inconsistancies. You may also have someone else mooching on your wifi.
there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
OK I think the easiest way to connect the xbox to the linksys, is if you configure your XBOX to have a static IP address, because the xbox will not have to pick an IP address every time you connect to the internet using the Linksys router and will not have conflicts with other PCs on your house, if you have any. What the linksys does is to convert your Public IP addres into a Private IP address, so example if your ISP gave you an IP address of: 18.104.22.168 that is your IP address for you, then the Linksys converts that number (NAT) into a private IP address so it can be share with many computer inside your house using a single Public IP address. The Linksys always transform it into 192.168.1.?=any number between 1-256 thats the defaults IP address from the manufacturer but you can change it if you want. Ok enough info about NAT or IP jeje.
Where going to use the default IP addres for an easier setup.
First: On your XBOX 360 dashboard go to SYSTEM, then Network Settings, then Edit Settings, then choose the option manual, here put the IP address= 192.168.1.33 (if 33 doesn't work use another numer like 20 or 45 just pick a number between 2 and 250) ; Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 ; Gateway = 192.168.1.1; DNS options put Automatic. And see if it connects. If it doesn't work just post it here, any problem that you have.
can you tell me what type of router you are working with. most routers have about 4 cat five cable slots where you can plug them into other computers. If you have a wireless router and you have a wireless adapter for the xbox that will work also.
another question are you working with the xbox360 and if so do you have an xbox live account?
another thing you might have to go into the setting of the router usally on the main computer to do this you will have to bring up the command prompt where it can be found at for windows 98/2000/xp/vista <start >all progams >accesses command prompt > type in ipconfig it will pop up with a default gateway and your ip you take the default gateway open your brosswer type it in. If you have not set up a password most routers have it as admin. from there i would need to know what kind of router you have ! hope that helps a little let me know djkb
Okay I didn't read every post but here is what you need to fix the dreaded BS on not being able to connect to friends.....The DMZ on your wireless router needs to be enabled and the IP address of your DMZ needs to be that of your Xbox 360. Go on your settings in your xbox and go under network settings and look at the IP address, put that exact IP address in your DMZ address setting on your wireless router settings. Make sure its enabled and the IP address is EXACTLY what it says on your xbox network settings. That should solve it all. That bypasses all your security for the xbox. Might want to put the UPNP on enable too. So the DMZ and the UPNP are both settings on your wireless router. If you have linksys its 192.168.1.1 or the linksys voice 192.168.15.1...... Try them both in your address bar, of course one at a time and DO NOT PUT www. JUST PUT 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.15.1 It should pull up a password screen and both username and pw are admin if you did not already change them. If you don't have linksys then just go online and find out how to change the settings on the router u have. This should solve it all and get you back online and rocking and rolling. Now you must do the same with your PS3 if you are having the same problems. Give me feedback on if it works. You can hit me up on xbox at BKM80. Good luck
