Netgear DG834G with xbox360

Specs:
Windows Vista 32bits (Dell Laptop)
Xbox 360 Elite
Netgear Wireless Router DG834G

Facts:
Network cable plugged XBOX to Laptop: Local Area Connection = OK
Bridged Wireless Connection with Local Area Connection = OK
Xbox Live connection : Failed

Question:
Do I need to change or amend some config in the Netgear to hand shake with the XBOX?
Shall I stop all "wireless" equipment in the house (phone, printer,..) before attempting another connection ?

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
Many thanks

Bill

Connect to the Router,
Under the Security tab, select Services, then add, give it the name XBOX TCP/UDP, set start port as 3074 and end port as 3074, set type as TCP/UDP, click apply/ok. Do this again, giving it the name XBOX UDP, start port 88, end port 88, type UDP, then apply settings.

Now go to Firewall under the Configuration tab, under incoming click add, now select the service XBOX UDP/TCP from the drop down menu. select forward to specific IP address or similar and type in your Xbox's IP address e.g. 192.168.1.5, click log never, then apply ok. Do the same for XBOX UDP and your again click apply. That's it! you've successfully opened the necessary ports on your Router and told your Router that any incoming info on those ports should be sent to your Xbox.

Brian, you're wrong. If he can connect to the router but cannot obtain an IP address, he can do all the port forwarding in the world and he will not connect to XBox Live.

What he is saying if you read his post, is that he cannot establish a DHCP session with the router.

This problem is not limited to DHCP with this model of Netgear router. Even if he set a static IP it would not connect to the DG834G. I think you'll find this to be a common problem with the DG834G.

The solution to this is to get another router. Preferably one certified compatible with Xbox.

How to get an internet connection for xbox live


Hello award ward,

To get a wireless internet connection for Xbox live, you will need a high-speed Internet connection such as cable or DSL and a router, gateway, or wireless access point (WAP) that is compatible
with Xbox live. If your XBOX360 console is first generation, you will also need a Xbox 360 wireless networking adapter. If you are using a wired connection, you will need a network cable. Plug the network cable into your router and the other end into your Xbox 360. On your Xbox 360 console, navigate to "MY XBOX" and then select "system settings" Next select "Network settings" and then select "Test Xbox Live connection" Select YES when the prompt appears asking you to update your software. After you become connected, there are two choices: Free membership of Gold membership. Once you are connected, navigate back to "My XBOX" and select your avatar and then select "Join Xbox Live" If you need any more help feel free to contact me. Thank you for using Fixya

You cannot use the netgear wi-fi adapter as the xbox 360 will not be able to detect it. I suggest buying the wi-fi adapter specifically manufactured for the xbox360
