Go on the linksys site and then click on the router you have. They all have default IP addresses. Maybe you are typing in the wrong IP address? Also, some of your settings may be wrong so check some XBOX router FAQ's online for other help. I also have a linksys router, but it works fine on my XBOX. You might want to try directly hooking up your XBOX to your modem, maybe it's not detecting the router if you have wireless?

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

Running two xbox live 360


Hello there.

A router shares your internet connection with local computers and devices on your local area network. Microsoft's xbox live requires a connection to your IP address on a certain port. This will be a problem when using 2 xboxes so what you would need to do is contact your Internet Service Provider, explain that you are using a router and require an additional Static IP Address.

Once they provide you the details for this, you can manually set up one of the xboxes with the static details your isp has given you.

This should stop the 2 xbox conflicting over connecting to the internet, as they will be running on seperate ip addresses.

Hope this helps.

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.

Ip address failed


I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

Xbox 360 to Linksys wireless modem...


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: 209.235.205.30 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.

Having problems connecting with friends when playing xbox live


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
