Maybe you havent configured it right, to do that you must set enable your router into dhcp mode to automatically assign an ip address. Configure your router manually (things needed: computer/ laptop, ethernet cable or cat 5 will do), to do that you must first look for your router's ip address look for your manual. After that connect your computer/laptop to your router using ethernet cable, and open internet explorer/firefox and enter your router's ip address. You will be ask for a usernme and password, just enter the default ( common default: username:admin, pasword: leave it blank. note: depends on manufacturer), there you can configure your router manually. Just go to internet setup and you can enable dhcp there. Goodluck, just give it a try. Hope it help.

Perform a factory reset of the router. Locate the reset button on the back of the unit. Hold it in with a paper clip for 15-30 seconds then release. Reboot the router and it will be back to factory default. Log into the device, and check the firmware. Look online to make sure that you have the current version, and update it if you do not.

I have a cradlepoint mbr 900 router now when i go online my xbox live connection cuts out after i played for a few minutes , im wondering why is it cus 4g is still to slow or are my settings not set up...


g gonzales, who is your isp? if it is verzn they could be blocking you. we could not connect to xboxlive kept getting dns server error msg.-xbox tech support said, call your isp, so we did. man o man-got the reaming of a life time. figured it out online how to fix the dns prob. able to connect but as soon as we did we would get booted out right away. called xbox tech support back, he said, looks like vzn. blocked you. they dont like having their airwave tied up with gamers. I was able to get block removed, sweet talked my way around it.

as far as your setting on mbr900 make sureunder the basic tab you have enteted in xbox ip address & mac address into dhcp reservation=save settings. then go into system, gaming, add gaming rule, check enable, name,(drop down=xbox360)-ip address of xbox 360 counsle. save.

got this info from cradlpt. we were able to connect, but after about 1/2hr got booted out and started getting dns server error msg again. i truly believe vrzn, is behind the issue. try the settings i suggested. good luck

Belkin wireless will no longer work with xbox or 360


You need to open the ports that the xbox and PSP uses to connect to the internet in your router. Contact your Router's support and ask them to open the ports in the router for you so that you can connect your game and go online. this is issue with port being blocked.

xbox configures the connection automatically as long as it is able to detect an internet connection(either wired or wireless). For wirless connections though, make sure xbox is using the correct security key or wep key for the wireless connection.

I bought a wireless network adaptor for xbox 360. I set it up according to the manuals. When I try to get online with the xbox 360 it recognizes the network, comes up with the ip address, but cannot find...


you do have an account with an isp yeah? eg BT, Tiscali, Sky, etc etc having a wireless router does not in itself get you onto the net... if you have an isp already thats cool but is the router you have a broadband modem too? or does it need to connect to your existing modem? the reason I ask is DNS is dial up networking service and one of the reasons a DNS would not be found is if there simply was not one to be found

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360


If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 live DNS test failed


if you are connecting directly to the modem, then you are going to need to get the dns info from your ISP. If you have a router just put the router address or let it find it automatically. Also check that the router has the right dns settings from the ISP.

allright do not worry about it seems some ports has to be forwaded in the router, normally 88- udp and other ports has to be forwarded in the router, get in touch with x.box and the port numbers , that will fix your problem
