I can't connect to x-box live parties, i can't accept or send game or party invites


You have to set up your xbox to a static IP Address, as well as you have to set up a DMZ inside of your router to the same existing IP Address. So you are going to have to access your router menu find out your information such as dns address, default gateway address, as well as your main ip address. Then go into your xbox and set it up the same but notice you will have to have your IP address for the Xbox to be different than the main IP for the router IE.. Router main IP Address 192.168.2.1 you will want your xbox IE 192.168.2.2 or something along those lines, however the default gateway and dns numbers need to be the same. Hope this helps

Tip

Browse websites faster


Here are no-cost ways to fine-tune DNS for faster browsing.

There's a simple way you can get to Web sites faster, and it won't cost you a penny. You can change the way your PC uses the Domain Name System (DNS), the technology underlying all Web browsing.

Before you start, it's a good idea to get a basic understanding of how DNS works. When you type in a URL such as www.example.com, that URL needs to be translated into a numeric IP address that Web servers and Internet routers can understand. When you type in a URL, a DNS server does the translation, from www.example.com to 208.77.188.166, for example.

An often used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example, www.example.com translates to 208.77.188.166.

DNS servers live on the Internet, and your computer contacts them with the request to do that translation, which is commonly called name resolution. When you use an ISP, your computer will automatically use the default DNS servers specified by your ISP; you typically don't need to set up DNS in any way. If you're on a corporate network, your systems administrator may have set you up to use specific DNS servers.

If there's a delay in contacting the DNS server, or if the DNS server takes too much time resolving the address, you'll face a delay in getting to a Web site. So even if you've got the world's fattest pipe, your Web surfing will be slowed down.

If you could speed up the name resolution in some way, you'd be able to speed up your Web surfing. And that's exactly what I'll show you how to do.

I am setting up my Xbox live. I set up the DNS server and IP address. And a few other things but it won't connect to live. It will connect to internet though. It says it doesn't recognize Xbox live DNS or...


The DNS is your routers ip address. the secondary DNS is 0.0.0.0 or thats what mine was


you can go to your routers2_bing.gif website and enter it manually. Type 192.168.1.1 this might be it or try 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.100

when it shows your routers info write it down and then put it in your xbox's network by entering it manually. btw the secondary DNS is just 0.0.0.0 if it doesn't give you two. the gateway is just your routers ip address.

what else you can do is do port forwarding.
But the xbox is not a static ip address so it'll change. what you can do is when it says to put your ip address in your xbox put all the numbers the same as the routers ip address BUT DON'T USE THE SAME LAST NUMBER! so like if your routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 you can use 192.168.1.23 i use 192.168.2.15 but you may not have the 2 in yours.

My xbox keeps kicking me of line done test and comes up weak signal strentgh the rooter is in the same room sometimes it lets me play for 10 mins then kicks me off due to weak signal tiscali say the signal...


Try to open ports on your netgear router, here's what you need to do:

Step 1:
Setting a Static IP Address for your 360
The first thing we need to do is give your 360 a static IP address. Turn on your 360 and go to the dashboard. Once you are at the dashboard, go over to the "System" Blade and select "Network Settings".


Under the "Network" Blade, we need to select "Edit Settings".



You will now be presented with the basic network settings for your 360. From here, you need to highlight the first section labeled "IP Settings" and select it.



From this screen, choose "Manual".


Now we will need to change all of the headings in this section 1 at a time. First will be IP addrress. Depending on what type of router you have, the settings will be differrent. Find your router brand below and enter the appropriate settings. If your router brand is not listed below, contact me, and i'll help you find the appropriate settings.
Linksys
  • IP Address : 192.168.1.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.1.1
  • DNS : 192.168.1.1
D-Link
  • IP Address : 192.168.0.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.0.1.
  • DNS : 192.168.0.1
Netgear
  • IP Address : 192.168.0.250
  • Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
  • Gateway : 192.168.0.1
  • DNS : 192.168.0.1
After you've entered all of your settings, select done, and we'll move on to the DNS settings. After selecting done, you'll be brought back to the basic settings menu. From here, you need to highlight the "DNS Settings" section and select it.


In the "DNS Settings" menu, select manual and then primary DNS server. When the entry box comes up, enter the settings listed above for your router brand and select done. A message will come up asking you to test and save your new settings. Select test live and press A. If you are currently signed into live, you will be logged out so the tests can run. At this point if you followed the instructions, everything should pass or be confirmed, and your NAT status will likely still show "moderate". This is normal. You still need to complete step 2 to open this up. We are now done with step one, so click on the the "Step 2" link to continue to the next step.
Step 2 Setup Port Forwarding on Your Router Setting up port forwarding is simple and should only take you a few minutes. During the process you're going to need to be at your computer in order to change your router's settings. The process will be a little bit differrent for each brand of router, so find the instructions for your router and follow those. As always, if you run into any problems, you can contact me using the contact info from the main page. So lets get started. Since at the moment I do not have a Linksys router, the images included below are "borrowed" from a great site, PortForward.com. They have a wealth of information about port forwarding, so if you are interested, check them out.

Once you are in, you should see a screen similar or exactly the same as the one pictured below.

From here, you need to click on the "Applications and Gaming"tab. You will see on this tab a few subheadings. Click on the subheading labeled "Port Range Forward".
The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074


Now to the final step...testing. We get to see if all of your hard work paid off, or if it was a waste of time and i'm a bumbling idiot! Now the first thing we need to do is turn on our 360 and get to the dashboard. Navigate over to the settings blade and select "Network Settings" and select it. On the next menu, select, "Test xBox Live Connection". If you are logged into live, you will need to be logged out for the tests to run. After the tests finish running, you should have the following results:
  • Network Adapter: Wired or Wireless (Depending on the connection type used
  • Wireless Network: varies (depends on if your are connected wirelessly)
  • IP Address: Conirmed
  • DNS: Confirmed
  • MTU: Confirmed
  • ICMP: Confirmed
  • Xbox Live: Confirmed
  • NAT:Open

If your tests show everything as stated above, congratulations, you are ready to play. If not, you screwed up and need to go back and read the directions again.

Xbox Live connection problem


Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.

Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074

It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:

A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.

1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2

# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP
Address on Your X-Box.


C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:

1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'.
9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50.
Click On 'Apply'.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.

Please repeat Steps 3 – 7 to configure the ports “UDP/TCP 3074”.

Dns failed when i tried to setup xbox live. i have a belkin router set up and my console is set up next to the xbox. what do i need to do?


Information on setting up port forwarding can be found at:

http://portforward.com/


If you want to go with a static setting this is what you need to do:

  • Login to the Router/Gateway by entering it's IP address in your web browser. (http://192.168.2.1)
  • On the left panel of the firmware page, under "Firewall," you should see a link "DMZ" for the Static IP configuration.
  • Your router should generate 25-50 Dynamic IP addresses for, choose a Static IP outside that range. (192.168.x.200)
  • Then go into your Xbox network configuration and set the IP address to the newly defined DMZ.
  • IP: 192.168.x.200 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Gateway: 192.168.2.1 (Primary DNS is the same as the gateway)

Connection problems


MTU stands for "Maximum Transmission Connection". Some routers and/or network gateways are incompatible with Xbox LIVE, while others may be compatible but merely need to have a setting changed. If you compare your router to the list of routers at the following web address, you can confirm whether or not your hardware has been confirmed as compatible with Xbox LIVE by Microsoft:

http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

Whether or not your hardware is listed as compatible, it would still be a good idea to check your instruction manual for the hardware you are using and see how (if possible) to change the MTU settings. Microsoft suggests that the MTU setting should be 1364. Using untested hardware or hardware not listed as compatible may still work, however, future updates to LIVE may suddenly make your hardware incompatible, as updates to LIVE and the Xbox console are made to work with the specifications of tested and listed compatible routers and gateways.

THINGS TO TRY loadTOCNode(1, 'whattotry'); Direct connection with a modem only loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. If you are connecting to Xbox Live by using a modem that is connected directly into your broadband socket, your IP address settings are obtained from your ISP. Set your IP address in Network Settings to Automatic. 2. If you use a static IP address that you obtained from your ISP, you must manually enter this address in the Dashboard. Contact your ISP for their static IP address if you do not know it. If the IP is not static, continue with the rest of the troubleshooting. 3. Power cycle the modem. 4. If your ISP requires PPPoE settings, verify that you have entered them correctly. 5. If your ISP does not use PPPoE authentication, do not use these fields in the Dashboard. Shared connection with a modem and a router loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Power cycle both the modem and the router. 2. Try connecting the Xbox 360 console to Xbox Live by using the modem only. This eliminates any configuration problems on the router. • If this setup works without the router, there is a configuration issue with the router. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. 3. Verify that your router's DHCP service has been enabled. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. 4. The IP address that you entered in the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Set your IP settings to Automatic. 5. If your ISP requires PPPoE settings, try to connect with only the modem after you enter the PPPoE settings in Network Settings. • If you can connect, see your router documentation to configure the PPPoE settings correctly on the router. 6. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section, turn off all the devices on the network. Try to connect with only the modem and Xbox 360 console connected. • If this works, there is a configuration issue on the routers DHCP server. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. Shared connection with a gateway device (combined modem and router) loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Make sure that the device is turned on. 2. Verify that there is activity with the blinking lights sequence WAN, ADSL, and Internet connected power. Note These names will vary from model to model. 3. Power cycle the gateway device. 4. The IP address that you entered in to the Network Settings area of the Xbox Dashboard may be incorrect. Set your IP settings to Automatic. 5. If you are receiving an IP conflict error in the More Info section, turn off all the other devices on the network. Try to connect with only the Xbox 360 console on the network. • If this test works, there is a configuration issue on the gateway DHCP server. See the router's documentation or contact the technical support group. Shared connection with Microsoft Windows Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(3, 'whattotry'); 1. Verify that you can browse the Internet. If you cannot browse the Internet, Internet Connection Sharing is not configured correctly. 2. Power cycle the modem. If the modem does not have an on and off switch, unplug the modem from the power outlet. You cannot follow this step if you are using a USB modem. Instead, go to the next step. You must follow this step if you are switching the modem between the Xbox 360 console and a computer. 3. On the computer, click Start, click Run, type ncpa.cpl, and then click OK. 4. On the View menu, click Tiles. 5. If the connection is listed as Firewalled, the firewall may have to be configured. See your firewall documentation. 6. Enter manual settings in the Dashboard for IP address, subnet mask, DNS address and gateway: • IP Address : 192.168.0.2 • Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 • Default Gateway : 192.168.0.1 • DNS server (Primary): 192.168.0.1 • DNS server (Secondary): 192.168.0.1If none of this works you might be banned. If you modded your xbox360 or for downloading game saves from the internet to boost you gamer score. You might be banned!
