Tip

Microsoft XBox Live and the 2Wire HomePortal


source: http://support.2wire.com (please visit!)

The Xbox Live service is compatible with all current and previously shipped versions of 2wire software. Simply connect your Xbox unit to the 2wire network and log on to the Xbox Live service.
If you are experiencing problems connecting to the XBox Live service, follow the troubleshooting procedures provided in your XBox Live documentation or XBox Live CD sleeve.
If you continue to have trouble, here are some additional troubleshooting tips:

1. Reconnect your Xbox to the 2wire Homeportal


Turn off the Xbox and unplug your 2wire HomePortal from the electrical outlet.

Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Local Ethernet port on the 2wire HomePortal.

Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox console.

Plug your 2wire back into the electrical outlet and wait for all lights to turn solid green before proceeding.

Turn on your Xbox console (without a disc in the tray).

From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Xbox Live.

In the network settings, test the connection. The connection test should pass.


2. Create custom 2wire Homeportal firewall settings

Although a custom firewall setting should not be required, manually configuring your 2wire firewall ensures that it is not preventing your connection to the Xbox Live service.

HomePortal software version 3.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages. Alternately, you can type: http://gateway.2wire.net

Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "View your home network" link in the same box.
Click on "Edit firewall settings" next to the unknown device.
In the lower left-hand corner of this screen, click on "Add a new user-defined application."
Enter "Xbox Live" for the Application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on Add.
Repeat these same steps for the following ports and protocols:

Port Protocol
53 UDP
88 TCP
88 UDP
3074 TCP
3074 UDP

Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.
Under "Select a Host Computer" select the "unknown device".
Under "Select the Application(s)" click on "User-defined."
Select "Xbox Live" in the box on the left and click "Add."
Click on "Done" in the lower right corner.

HomePortal software version 2.x

From your computer, open a browser and type: http://homeportal into the address line to access your 2wire configuration pages.
Click on the "HomePortal Upgrades" button and if you have an upgrade available, download the upgrade. If you do not have an upgrade available, continue to next step
Under the list of Connected Devices you should see a device labeled "unknown device". This is the Xbox unit.
Click on "Advanced" link in the same box.
In the lower, left-hand corner of this screen click on "Add an application" link. Enter "Xbox 1" for the application Name.
Select Protocol "TCP"
Leave the Protocol setting as "Other".
In the port "From:" and "To:" boxes enter 53. Do not change the other settings.
Click on DONE on the "Add Application" page.
Repeat the same steps for the following ports and protocols. You will need to create a new name for each entry:

Xbox 1 53 UDP
Xbox 2 88 TCP
Xbox 3 88 UDP
Xbox 4 3704 TCP
Xbox 5 3704 UDP

Click on DONE on the "Hosted Application" page when you are finished creating the list above.

My xbox keeps kicking me of line done test and comes up weak signal strentgh the rooter is in the same room sometimes it lets me play for 10 mins then kicks me off due to weak signal tiscali say the signal...


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.

I cant get an IP adress what i it it says faild


If the X-Box is trying to connect wirelessly to your network, you might need to access the router page and check the wireless settings and make sure that you have the correct encryption or network key, Check the MAC address filtering of the router and make sure that it is disabled or it is off, If you are using a D-link router it is under the Advance tab, Network filter, on the other routers mostly they are under security options, Now after checking those on your router follow the following steps

- Go to the X-Box Dashboard
- Go to Network settings
- If the X-Box is wireless you should have on option for wireless at the bottom of the page
- Select your wireless network and test the X-Box Live
- If it is a wired connections
- Test X-Box Live It should now all connect and confirm the IP, DNS, ICMP
- NAT may show as strict but it should be able to connect to X-Box Live
- If you want to Set the NAT to Open
- Check the IP address of the X-Box by going to Network settings then Edit settings
- Then go to the computer again
- Access the router page
- Go to port forwarding normally located under an advance tab
- Open the ports UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074 (here's one example, http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DIR-655/Xbox_Live_360.htm)
- The IP address field must be filled with the IP address you got from the X-Box

Hopefully this solve's your problem sir

Connection problems


MTU stands for "Maximum Transmission Connection". Some routers and/or network gateways are incompatible with Xbox LIVE, while others may be compatible but merely need to have a setting changed. If you compare your router to the list of routers at the following web address, you can confirm whether or not your hardware has been confirmed as compatible with Xbox LIVE by Microsoft:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

Whether or not your hardware is listed as compatible, it would still be a good idea to check your instruction manual for the hardware you are using and see how (if possible) to change the MTU settings. Microsoft suggests that the MTU setting should be 1364. Using untested hardware or hardware not listed as compatible may still work, however, future updates to LIVE may suddenly make your hardware incompatible, as updates to LIVE and the Xbox console are made to work with the specifications of tested and listed compatible routers and gateways.

Xbox live connection?


When the Xbox live fails, it just means XBOX Live is currently down in your area. Give it a day then try again. If the problem continues, call microsoft.
