In the DMZ zone of your router, it has to be capable to accept incoming connections .
to access your router..192.168.1.1 in internet explorer >>> go >>> it will gonna ask your passwor d and user name(by default they are admin) >>> go to application & gaming...select DMZ...DMZ Hosting -select enable..and tipe your IP address in the form below.
You can find your IP address in Status >>> select Local network >>>> DHCP client table >>>> and you'll gonna find your PC name and IP address in there.

I am trying to hook up xbox live for the first time. i have a isp windstream and a speedstream 5200 modem. My connection is good verified by windstream but x box cannont connect to the signal. Winstream...


  1. Step 1 Have your Xbox 360 correctly hooked up to television with HDMI or component cables. Turn your television and Xbox on. Make sure your television is on the correct input. Make sure that your WIndstream DSL Modem is on. If you have a router, make sure that it is on.
  2. Step 2 Obtain the security key for your wireless network, and write this key down. You will need this key to allow the Xbox 360 to have wireless access to the Internet. If you do not know where to find your wireless network key, you will have to access the security setup of your router. The way to do this varies by model, so check your user's manual to see how. If you don't plan on using the Xbox Wireless Adapter for your Xbox, you may skip this step.
  3. Step 3 Run a network cable (Ethernet) from your router or directly from the modem to the Xbox 360. Once you have this cable plugged in you will have to access the "My Xbox" tab on your dashboard. Go to the "System Settings" portion of the tab, usually the last portion on the right, and access network settings. For wired setups, go to the "Configure Network" option and make sure both the "IP Settings" and "DNS Settings" are set to automatic.
    For wireless setups, you will need to have the Xbox Wireless Adapter plugged into the Xbox. Under the Network Settings, enter the security key that you obtained earlier to allow access to the Internet and Xbox Live.
  4. Step 4 Create an account on Xbox Live. You will need to either have a credit card or an Xbox Live subscription card. You can purchase Xbox Live cards at your local game retailer. You will be asked to enter information and create a user name called a "Gamer Tag." This is the name that you will be known as in the x-box community hope this help you out

XBOX 360 strict NAT problem


Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

I'M HOOKING MY XBOX 360 TO A WIRELESS ROUTER FROM THE COMPUTER AND THE GME SAYS MY DNS FAILED!


Yeah, DNS is the domain name service that sometimes sucks depending on the ISP and day of the week; there's an OpenDNS.org you can try on the XBox to get things going if the ones from your ISP can't satisfy; but it might also be that you need to explicitly allow DNS routing for the XBox.

Also, your problem description is lousy because I can't tell what the data path to the XBox is; off the router, to your PC, and again on a cable from your PC to the XBox, or what?  Take off all-caps and explain what router you have...maybe make a new question under that router's model name, since that's the issue...and how you think the XBox ought to have internet connectivity.

Xbox 360 live DNS test failed


if you are connecting directly to the modem, then you are going to need to get the dns info from your ISP. If you have a router just put the router address or let it find it automatically. Also check that the router has the right dns settings from the ISP.

There can be a few different things causing this.

If you can, with your xbox turned off... Unplug your routers power cord for about 30 seconds and then plug it back in. Once your router has started back up, and all cables are in place, turn your xbox on and see if it connects.

There are some routers that are not quite compatible with xbox live, but most newer routers are. There is a list on the xbox support site of compatible routers. Here is a link to that support site for you...

Netopia's Modem my also act as a Router protecting your system from internet traffic! You need to check your model to insure what you have. If it is a Router you will have to Contact Netopia in regards to configuring Pin Hole on the Router to open the gaming ports on the Router.
