Connecting to Xbox Live through my Dynex-E401 Router

The router is working fine for my main computer, and is sending a good signal to my Xbox 360 through the direct ethernet connection that I set up, but whenever I try to sign on to Xbox Live I get the message that says, "Xbox live signup is currently unavailable." Does this have to do with the way the router needs to be configured? Could the router be incompatible with their service? ( I seem to doubt it.) Or, Is it microsoft's network problem?

Re: Connecting to Xbox Live through my Dynex-E401 Router

You would think that Xbox 360 would be perfectly compatible with UPnP. They should be communicating with each other just fine, (UPnP talks to NATPMP to automatically open and forward appropriate ports), and the game's datastream is probably entirely connectionless aside from the initial handshake (UDP).

To log into your router console, type "" into your browser, for the username enter "admin" and do not put in a password. To enabled Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), click ADVANCED and on the left side click DMZ.

You will need to know the internal IP address to the XBOX360, which can be found on the "CABLE TEST" or "LAN" page in the router console.

If you find that you cannot log into the router console with the supplied information, you need to press the little reset button with a pen for like 10 seconds.

If you cannot reach the router console at then you need to go to Network Connections in windows and find out the "Default Gateway IP" which is the router's internal IP.

The XBOX360's internal IP address will be in the same format as your computer's (if you only have one computer, the XBOX360's IP will probably be and your computer's should be All of these are default values. You can change them in the router console as you please.

You will need to log in to your router and look for a setting similar to "DMZ Host". Configure the IP address of your Xbox as the DMZ host.

I have had a wireless dynex router for awhile and it has been working fine using wireless then when i plugged in my computer and xbox 360 to the router it has made the computers using the wireless internet...

it is getting limited or no connectivity because it is actually not connected even though it shows.the best resolution is that change your entire wireless settings and then connect all wireless devices like computer and xbox 360 again it will connect.I use to do the same when i use to work for netgear.

that will fix..
