My xbox 360 says im connected to xbox live checked network setings and it says xb ox live is up and running...however when i try to play need for speed says xbox live not working functionally?...

Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings." Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.) Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

Can I extend my internet range with a netgear & a Belkin router

DG834G is a modem/router, it is not a range extender that could extend the range of the wireless signal from the Belkin router.

Want to set xbox on line havnt got a clue

If you have an original Xbox the online capability is obsolete and will no longer be supported by Microsoft if you have an Xbox 360 you need to purchase an xbox live account either at a retail location or online through your xbox dashboard (internet and credit card required). You need to connect a network cable to the back of the xbox the other end to your router or modem to access Xbox live. They also sell a wireless network adaptor for the 360 that you can use instead of a wired connection.

Netgear DG834G with xbox360

Connect to the Router,
Under the Security tab, select Services, then add, give it the name XBOX TCP/UDP, set start port as 3074 and end port as 3074, set type as TCP/UDP, click apply/ok. Do this again, giving it the name XBOX UDP, start port 88, end port 88, type UDP, then apply settings.

Now go to Firewall under the Configuration tab, under incoming click add, now select the service XBOX UDP/TCP from the drop down menu. select forward to specific IP address or similar and type in your Xbox's IP address e.g., click log never, then apply ok. Do the same for XBOX UDP and your again click apply. That's it! you've successfully opened the necessary ports on your Router and told your Router that any incoming info on those ports should be sent to your Xbox.

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers

  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
Hope this helps!

My Xbox 360 Says No Wireless Network, 192.168 takes me to!

I believe you are referring to the network key set on the Belkinrouter. Since you do not have the code, you will have to access yourrouter's web interface.

Let's begin with your router:

Using your working laptop, open Internet Explorer type (default IP address of Belkin routers) press Enter. It will ask for a username and password - by default it'sadmin for both. If it does not accept admin, type in the username andpassword you set to your router when you installed it for the firsttime.

Once you open the setup page of the router, go to the Wireless tab ofthe router (located on the left side of the web interface. Look forSSID and WEP key or Network key (SSID is the name of your wireless network). Take note of the SSID and WEP keybecause you will need to set this on the XBOX console.

On the XBOX:

Open the dashboard settings - select Network Settings. Configure your XBOX to connect to your wireless network. When it ask for the network key - type in the code that you will see on the router's web interface.

Try the steps I mentioned, give us an update and I'll reply ASAP if you need further assistance.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Connecting a PC with trendnet wireless AP to DG834G

you need service pack 3 as this sees any connected media that can be accessed from the programmes menu>accesories>system tools or download programme from here to set up xbox/pc streaming.

As for the Trendnet ensure that the pc it fitted to is not set to dial a connection, open IE and then tools>internet options>connections tab and select never dial a connection or it's greyed out.

Then in the properties of your wireless adapter select the TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically'.
