When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.

Cant connect to xbox live.. I have my Motorola surfboard SB 5102 modem connected to the zyxel 660 router which is connected to the xbox. It says IP address not found" and sometimes, it passes the network...


Sorry if this sounds stupid.
It sounds to me like you are using your own dongle for the xbox connection yes??

Unfortunatly you have to buy one of the xbox 360 wireless adapters ..( £40.00 last time i got one)

Also have you tried setting up your connection in the menu screen

I cant guide you thru cos im slackin off work exp at BAE lool ^_-

Connecting windstream dsl modem to xbox


Did you get a router, the dsl modem it self wont do much good, you need a router so it can assign your xbox an IP address. You need to have a router hooked up to the DSL modem, and the xbox hooked up to the router.

Ip adress


go to the network connections page on your computer, then find your connection and right click it and move down to status... there should be a tab that says support... click it and you should see the ip address assigned to your modem by the ISP.

Xbox360


Hello taz1028,

In order for you to be able to log into Xbox Live, you will need to have DSL or Broad Band internet connect in your home. Once you have that, you will be able to connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Modem that the internet provider gives you. If you wish to able to connect both the Xbox and your notebook to the modem you will then need a router or a wireless router. So, if you do not have DSL or Broad Band Internet service in your home, you will not be able to log into Xbox Live.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

Xbox live


Hi you will need to either do the following:

1. extend the dhcp leasing function within the router by increasing the time for the lease, usually this is in minutes
2. manually assign the ip address so ud ont have this problem ever again
3. renew the ip address via xbox 360
4. it could just mean the xbox live server is temp down.

good luck

Assign a static IP address to the 360, then go into your router's setting and set a DMZ for that static IP.
