The IP addres it is asking for is from your wireless router. (You do have one hooked up, rigth?) You can get this by going to any of your PCs at home and opening a DOS command prompt. Usually you can get there by clicking Start and clicking on Run. A little box opens. Type in cmd and hit Enter. Up comes the black window with white text. You will type in ipconfig /all. There is a space between the g and /all. Up pops the IP configuration for your home system. If my old man's memory serves correctly, it will need the Default Gateway address typed in from which it will get its own IP address. I admit it has been about 3 months since I hooked up my last one but I believe that to be the correct method. After that, it will send out a test signal to make sure you can access the Live features. Let me know if this helps you.

How do I open my NAT settings for xbox live on a D-Link DSL-G604T. I also want to forward the specific ports for Xbox Live which are TCP [80] and UDP [88, 3074] but I am not sure how.


What you need to do first is set a static IP address on your Xbox. Also put the router IP address as the gateway and DNS server.
Don't know how you do that as I have never used one but it must have some network settings somewhere for you do that on the xbox.

Then go back to the network settings where your were on the router and set the following:

Rule Name: Xbox UDP 88
Private IP: put the ip address of your xbox here
Protocol: UDP
Port Start: 88
Port End: 88
Port Map: 88

Rule Name: Xbox TCP/UDP 3074
Private IP: put the ip of your xbox here
Protocol: Both
Port Start: 3074
Port End: 3074
Port Map 3074

Good Luck, feel free to get more clarification, do rate the solution if got help

My Zonet ZSR4134WE Wireless-N router doesn't connect to live. I've checked the MTU setting and everything. It works perfectly, until it gets to the "Xbox Live" part of the test, then it fails. Please help.


you need to open the ports on your router for xbox ports are TCP 88 UDP 88 UDP 3074 TCP 3074 UDP 53 TCP 53
first connect the xbox to the network and get the ip address (like 192.168.x.x) and then use the computer and login to router setup page and under firewall open these ports for the ip address of xbox . If you find a DMZ there , then enable it for XBOX ip address and reboot the router. ** imp: try to make a static ip address on xbox so when you restart the xbox teh ip address should not change -
to check what is the ip address provided from you router :- go command prompt (start ->run- > type cmd and hit enter) a black screen(command) type ipconfig you will find ip address of computer , so you can set the ip address of xbox like that -but just make the last number different (like ip address on computer 192.168.2.5 then make ip address of xbox to 192.168.2.6) perform this will help .. its all about the ports but be sure with ip address

CANT RUN XBOX LIVE AND MY PC HAVE NETGEAR ROUTER


Open port numbers UDP 88 and TCP 3074 pointing to the IP address of the XBOX. Make sure that the IP address of the XBOX is within the IP segment of the router. Ex. if your router has 192.168.1.1 IP address your XBOX should have 192.168.1.x IP address.

Cant connect to xbox live


make sure that your xbox is acctually getting an ip address, by default it should be a 192.168.0.xx number and the gateway should be 192.168.0.254
If however your xbox tells you that its ip address is 168.xx.xx.xx (a private ip address) or if it is simply 0.0.0.0 it would sugest a cabling problem.
However if the network troubleshooter finds no faults and you are still unable to get into xbox live try setting up a PPPoE connection using the username eircom and broadband1.
Alternatively,If you click on Firewall in the Netopia admin page, and set the security level to Low, xbox live would suddenly start to work.
******Also add UDP ports 88 and 3074 if nothing works.On a netopia 3347 you can get this option in the NAT option.U have to enter the port numbers and the service name(xbox).
Hope it works for you.

Xbox live


you can set a static ip address to your xbox if it's not detecting it automatically.
in order for you to know what ip address to set, go to the command prompt (for windows xp: click on start, then run, type cmd). when you're on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all and hit enter. tahe note of the default gateway, subnet mask and dns 1 and 2. for example, the default gateway is 192.168.1.1, you can set your xbox using the ip address 192.168.1.2 and up (note: you just need to make sure that you are going to use an ip address that is not being used by any other devices that are also connected to the router).

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Optimizing WGR614(v1) for xbox live


the normal port that requires opening in your router for xbox is TCP3074, you should just type the number in as if there are no options, although there should be, it may know that 3074 is a TCP port.
