Question about Computers & Internet
The following wireless access points/routers have been tested for use
with the SoundBridge and SoundBridge Radio. While Roku is unable to
provide testing results for all available wireless access point and
routers, the vast majority will work fine with your SoundBridge product.
We encourage you to try using your SoundBridge with your existing
wireless equipment, regardless of published result before replacing your
The current SoundBridge models, M1001 (connections on the back) and SoundBridge Radio R1000, use different wireless hardware than the older M1000, M500 and M2000 models (connections under the endcaps). This newer hardware has proven considerably more reliable than the older wireless hardware and should work out-of-the-box with virtually any 802.11b-compatible wireless equipment you may have. Compatibility of the older hardware has been improved over time and we recommend that you upgrade your SoundBridge's software to the latest version as soon as possible, particularly if your SoundBridge was delivered with software older than version 2.3.44. Upgrading older software may require using a wired ethernet connection or even taking your SoundBridge to a neighbors house or your office to sucessfully perform the upgrade.
To check your software version and perform an upgrade, use your SoundBridge remote control to navigate to the menu Change Library or Configuration -> System Configuration -> Software Version and Updates and follow the on-screen instructions.
If you still experience Wi-Fi connection problems, check the following items:
If, after checking these items, you still cannot get
your SoundBridge to connect to your wireless network, we encourage you
to contact support or visit our Roku Community Forums where other
customers and Roku employees will attempt to help you.
Bold = recommended by Roku for use with the latest version of SoundBridge software.
Red = poor performance or incompatible with SoundBridge
* = customer tested - your results may differ.

Try to open ports on your netgear router, here's what you need to do:
Setting a Static IP Address for your 360
The first thing we need to do is give your 360 a static IP address. Turn on your 360 and go to the dashboard. Once you are at the dashboard, go over to the "System" Blade and select "Network Settings".
Under the "Network" Blade, we need to select "Edit Settings".
You will now be presented with the basic network settings for your 360. From here, you need to highlight the first section labeled "IP Settings" and select it.
From this screen, choose "Manual".
Now we will need to change all of the headings in this section 1 at a time. First will be IP addrress. Depending on what type of router you have, the settings will be differrent. Find your router brand below and enter the appropriate settings. If your router brand is not listed below, contact me, and i'll help you find the appropriate settings.
In the "DNS Settings" menu, select manual and then primary DNS server. When the entry box comes up, enter the settings listed above for your router brand and select done. A message will come up asking you to test and save your new settings. Select test live and press A. If you are currently signed into live, you will be logged out so the tests can run. At this point if you followed the instructions, everything should pass or be confirmed, and your NAT status will likely still show "moderate". This is normal. You still need to complete step 2 to open this up. We are now done with step one, so click on the the "Step 2" link to continue to the next step.
Step 2 Setup Port Forwarding on Your Router Setting up port forwarding is simple and should only take you a few minutes. During the process you're going to need to be at your computer in order to change your router's settings. The process will be a little bit differrent for each brand of router, so find the instructions for your router and follow those. As always, if you run into any problems, you can contact me using the contact info from the main page. So lets get started. Since at the moment I do not have a Linksys router, the images included below are "borrowed" from a great site, PortForward.com. They have a wealth of information about port forwarding, so if you are interested, check them out.
Once you are in, you should see a screen similar or exactly the same as the one pictured below.
From here, you need to click on the "Applications and Gaming"tab. You will see on this tab a few subheadings. Click on the subheading labeled "Port Range Forward".
The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
Now to the final step...testing. We get to see if all of your hard work paid off, or if it was a waste of time and i'm a bumbling idiot! Now the first thing we need to do is turn on our 360 and get to the dashboard. Navigate over to the settings blade and select "Network Settings" and select it. On the next menu, select, "Test xBox Live Connection". If you are logged into live, you will need to be logged out for the tests to run. After the tests finish running, you should have the following results:
If your tests show everything as stated above, congratulations, you are ready to play. If not, you screwed up and need to go back and read the directions again.
