Re: how do i

Well fastest, quickest and dirtiest would be to get a network cable plug it into the back of the thompson router and DMZ the MAC address or IP address the Xbox pulls.

That's the fastest, quickest and dirtiest.

For reference on your router, look up DMZ in it's manual and follow the directions. Go into the Xbox and have it give you either the MAC address or the IP address it pulls. Enter that information in the DMZ and you should be set.

You didn't post a model number so best I could do is give general directions.

What does wpa key stand for when setting up for the x box live

Hi ,

I got your issue , WPA Security it denotes that , the network to which you are trying to connect has been protected with WPA security mode, inorder to prevent other people to connect to your internet.

Usually the router can be secured with 2 different security mode, They are

1. WEP(64 bit and 128 bit)
2. WPA

So your router is secured with WPA security

Internet reconnect every hour at same time even with no router

First what is the make and model of the router? See if there is a firmware update first. If not you may want to consider replacing it. You can even get wireless N routers now for 40$. Wireless G routers can be bought for as little as 20$. If you still have any questions please let me know.
Thank you,

I can't find the IP Address on my ARRIS Router!

the ip address should be given automatically by the router but since it is asking,
in your computer go to start,run,type in cmd and hit enterm
it should open a black box in that box type in ipconfig and hit enter,
it should give u a list of result,search the one which says ip address,
if the ip address of ur computer is,then the ip address for your xbox should be,
if the ip address is different than the example i gave you just make sure that the difference between the last numbers should be 5 atleast....let me kno the ip address of your computer and i can tell what ip address u need
for the xbox...........

Xbox and tivo

What is the error you're getting from the XBox? Log into the console with no game in the tray and go to the network settings and try to detect the network connection.
Also, did you get that router from Vonage? Their support page for that router is HERE: and may be able to provide you with additional information.

Computer connection

All you need is a network hub, switch, or router to get both communicating. Windows Media Player 11 (Comes with Windows) does all the legwork on the computer side.

I need to connect a real router with more ports to it 4-2 pcs

Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.

Note: no need for any CDs to "install" anything.
