Try to open ports on your netgear router, here's what you need to do:

Step 1:
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.
Linksys

  • IP Address : 192.168.1.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.1.1
  • DNS : 192.168.1.1
D-Link
  • IP Address : 192.168.0.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.0.1.
  • DNS : 192.168.0.1
Netgear
  • IP Address : 192.168.0.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.0.1
  • DNS : 192.168.0.1
After you've entered all of your settings, select done, and we'll move on to the DNS settings. After selecting done, you'll be brought back to the basic settings menu. From here, you need to highlight the "DNS Settings" section and select it.


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:
  • Network Adapter: Wired or Wireless (Depending on the connection type used
  • Wireless Network: varies (depends on if your are connected wirelessly)
  • IP Address: Conirmed
  • DNS: Confirmed
  • MTU: Confirmed
  • ICMP: Confirmed
  • Xbox Live: Confirmed
  • NAT:Open

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.

Wont start for 10 min


Have your charging system tested and include the Battery. Go to Autozone.com ,register your vehicle for free, get free wiring diagrams and Fusebox layouts. Have a starter draw test done.

Check the relays for the fuelpump, ignition, and PCM. Sometimes the horn relay can be the same part number and be interchanged.

What you are describing can be many things. You have more compression in a hot engine, you have different timing in a hot engine because vehicles run so lean today. The O2 sensors may be keeping the engine too lean to restart after a warmup. Relays can overload when hot and kick out the connections. Your fuelpump can be failing.

You did not indicate how far you drive when this happens. If you are driving 10 miles a weak battery will not recharge, but a 100 mile trip gives it more opportunity. The starter draw test will tell if the starter is bad. The starter may cool down overnight, but frequent restarts may heat the starter with it failing.

Keep getting disconnected from xboxlive


How is the internet connection where you are playing? This seems to be the most likely culprit. If the connection is good and solid for the most part, the second most likely reason you're being kicked off is that the server that Xbox Live is connecting to is probably malfunctioning or maintenance is being done on it. If your signal strength is good and the problem doesn't clear up in a couple of days, I would contact Xbox Live customer support.

XBOX Live & Netgear Router Help!!!!!!!!!!!


You need a excellent signal to your Xbox. Xbox requires a constant connection. My son as an Xbox and we had to run a wire connection to the Xbox no problems after that. Or you need to move your wireless router to the same room as your xbox to get a stronger connection.

Please rate my response.

"weak signal" on my RCA scenium


Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa
