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.

How do I connect my xbox to my modem?


Depending or whether your trying to connect it wirelessly or wired you will need a xbox live compatible router or wireless router(gateway).

to connect it wired you will just need to connect an ethernet cable to the Xbox

If your trying to connect it wirelessly you will need to use a wireless xbox adapter and a wireless router.

My internet keeps saying thompson gateway i dont no why though is it to do with my xbox on xbox live?


That is the name that the gateway was giving. Is that one at your home, if not it's a neighbor.

Are you able to connect to it, or are you getting no internet at all?

I want to open my NAT so i can play xbox live


Okay. If you look at Network connections on Start menu (XP) open network connections...
Then select the on you are connected to... (LAN or WLAN) Click the support tab and you will see something like "192.168.1.1"
Well type that into your browser, if it ask you for a password the default is normaly "admin" or "1234" (No quotes)
Temper with the "Gaming" or "Wireless connections" or "port forwarding"
If that does not work, are you sure you got xbox live gold?
(or hit the reset button on the back of your router)

Xbox live connection keeps crashing.


Hi,

problems usually happen, when the signal strength drops.
I,d suggest hard-wiring the 360 to the PC or router, for optimal performance.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Can i plug xbox live ethenet cable into cox cable modem


Yes you can plug it in directly, i dont think youll need a cross over cable, you can use a router so you can share the connection between several pieces of electronics, if you get a wireless router you wont need ny cables. A router routes data between ether net cable allowing each line access to what ever is on the network.

MTU failing for Xbox live


Hi

I am afraid Dell 2350 Wireless Router is not Xbox LIVE Certified.

Check Microsoft Knowledge Base ID: 908882 - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908882/
And
Xbox Live Compatible logo - http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

XBox 360 not compatible with Motorola WR850G


Motorola WR850G router may fail to connect to xbox live after update to firmware 6.1.4. I was able to correct the problem. My solution was
Go in xbox >> network config >> IP and use Static option. Set the xbox to an IP in the range allowed by your router configuration. The router IP config range is found in the router config web >> Lan section. Then I set my router config >> Routing >> DMZ IP Address setting to the xbox ip I just assigned to my xbox. Restart router using the restart button on the Basic page of router config. Restart your xbox and attempt to login to xbox live. This solved my problem.

As a side note, on the xbox networking test page, the xbox live status message will allows show they are aware of a problem with xbox live login. This is a lie. For that reason I postponed trying to fix my router problem thinking it was an xbox issue, it is not. Once you finally connect to xbox live you will still notice this incorrect message remains.
