A. Determine the IP Address and MAC Address of the Xbox.

Note: You may find the IP address and MAC address of your Xbox on your Dashboard's Network Settings. Please refer to your Xbox manual for more information on this.

B. Reserve the IP address.

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. For security reasons, the router has its own user name and password. When prompted, enter admin for the User name and password for the Password, both in lower case letters.

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab.
5. Click on Add under Address Reservation.
6. Under Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add from the Address Reservation Table.
7. If the computer you want is not on the list, please click on the Refresh button to update the table.
8. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table, please type in the IP Address, MAC Address, and Device Name of the computer you wish to add.
9. Click the Add button when done.

C. Forward the ports.

1. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced. For older firmware version, click on Port Triggering tab or just click Port Forwarding on Please select the service type.
2. Click Add and another window will pop up.
3. Type Xbox for Name. Set the radio button to Enable.
4. On Outgoing Port Range, set the Start Port and End Port to 3074.
5. On Incoming Port Range, you also have to indicate 3074 for Start Port and End Port. Save the settings by clicking on Apply.
6. Please repeat steps b to e and indicate 88 for Start Port and End Port. Then change the Name to Xbox2.

Note: If it still does not work, you may try these other options:

D. Lower down the MTU.

1. Access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2 above).
2. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
3. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300.
4. Click on the Apply button.

E. Enable UPnP.

1. Go to UPnP tab of the router.
2. Enable UPnP and then save the settings by clicking on Apply. Some websites and devices require UPnP or Universal Plug and Play. Just make sure that it is enabled on the router.

F. Upgrade the firmware.

Note: Follow the steps below if the above troubleshooting still do not allow Xbox to connect using the router.

1. Please verify the router version and model either underneath or at its side panel.
2. Go to http://kbserver.NETGEAR.com/downloads_support.asp and please select the model of the router.
3. Click the appropriate version of the router.
4. Select the link of the latest firmware. Click the button Right-click and Save to Download. Save the file to the Desktop.

Note: Please perform firmware upgrade with Wired or Ethernet connection only.

5. Before upgrading, please write down all current settings since you need to enter them manually.
6. Using the computer hardwired on the router, please launch Internet Explorer and access the Setup page of the router (refer to Step 2).
7. Click on Maintenance and then Router Upgrade.
8. Click on Browse and locate the upgraded file in your Desktop. Then click on Upload.
9. Please wait for the router to reboot. After a successful firmware upgrade, you need to reset the router.

E. Reset the router.

1. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
2. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

(this note should go before the step to Reset the router) Note: Resetting the router will erase all the settings so it needs to be reconfigured afterwards. The router can be reconfigured using the setup CD or by manual configuration.

How do i resolve DNS server issues


typically your router should pick that up automagically from your ISP. If the power failure reset your router to factory (unlikely) you will need to login to it and reset those settings. from a computer connected to that router run a dos console (type cmd in win 7 or 8 start menu or xp run menu) then run ipconfig, write down the gateway address and use internet explorer to browse to that address (type the address in the address bar). login to the router and look for the ISP settings and such. your ISP should be able to help with those settings. that failing use 8.8.8.8 (google) as a DNS server in your computer IP configuration.

Wireless keep failing.


It might not be a router issue. If there is a DNS conflict, then check the connection settings on your computer. If possible, automatically assign IP and DNS.

Primary DNS should be the IP of your router or internet gateway (192.168.1.1 or similar). Secondary DNS 4.1.1.1

If your router is connected to the net and you can receive and send data, then the problem will be a local one (LAN rather than WAN).

If all else fails, reset the router and start from scratch.

Do you have a DMZ on this router. If you turn on the DMZ and set your ip address for the xbox as your DMZ it may/may not work, but it is worth a shot. What that does is open up anything going to your xbox 360 so there should be no firewall between the router and the xbox.

Linksy router


a DNS server stands for domain name service. The DNS server translatesnames from IP addresses. The internet sees IP addresses such as 209.235.250.53 but the DNS server provided by your ISP translates it for you into fixya.com. You should be able to aquire the DNS server information from your internet provider (ISP) hope this helps.

"Failed to lookup DNS" error with Aluratek wifi internet radio


Here's the useless response from Aluratek customer support:
"Failed to lookup DNS, the password is case sensitive, if you are using upper lower case letters you have to key in the correct case otherwise you won't be able to connect your radio. Thanks."
However, Aluratek advised another AIRMM01 owner to obtain a newer modem. I bought a new Actiontec GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem and that resolved the problem with my AIRMM01F.
