Re: router and xbox 360

In the DMZ zone of your router, it has to be capable to accept incoming connections .
to access your router.. in internet explorer >>> go >>> it will gonna ask your passwor d and user name(by default they are admin) >>> go to application & 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 have a cradlepoint mbr 900 router now when i go online my xbox live connection cuts out after i played for a few minutes , im wondering why is it cus 4g is still to slow or are my settings not set up...

g gonzales, who is your isp? if it is verzn they could be blocking you. we could not connect to xboxlive kept getting dns server error msg.-xbox tech support said, call your isp, so we did. man o man-got the reaming of a life time. figured it out online how to fix the dns prob. able to connect but as soon as we did we would get booted out right away. called xbox tech support back, he said, looks like vzn. blocked you. they dont like having their airwave tied up with gamers. I was able to get block removed, sweet talked my way around it.

as far as your setting on mbr900 make sureunder the basic tab you have enteted in xbox ip address & mac address into dhcp reservation=save settings. then go into system, gaming, add gaming rule, check enable, name,(drop down=xbox360)-ip address of xbox 360 counsle. save.

got this info from cradlpt. we were able to connect, but after about 1/2hr got booted out and started getting dns server error msg again. i truly believe vrzn, is behind the issue. try the settings i suggested. good luck

3) Go to any computer that is going online with the router
4) Type in in the address bar of your Internet explorer
5) This will open up router interface(here we have to do some settings)
6) In the left hand side column, click on FIREWALL.
7) Leave the password blank in login page and disable the FIREWALL. Click on Apply Changes.
8) Under FIREWALL(in the left hand side column), click on DMZ

Xbox live test fails and so does update

you need to open the port that the update is trying to go through. the easiest way is to turn your firewall off, but this opens up your security. another way is to forward the correct port through port forwarding on your router. findout which port xbox live uses and put in the information to the router

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.
