What is the error you're getting from the XBox? Log into the console with no game in the tray and go to the network settings and try to detect the network connection.
Also, did you get that router from Vonage? Their support page for that router is HERE: http://www.vonage.com/help.php?article=1087&category=103&nav=3 and may be able to provide you with additional information.

D-Link router settings for connecting to a TIVO - wired


It is all about managing the IP's. The router and TiVo should be set to DHCP. This will allow auto IP addressing. It could also be set to static, but this requires more managing on your part.

How do i open my nat for my motorola sbg900


for static IPs: check your router settings. router should be in "bridged" mode so that all the devices have own static "lan" ips like 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.0.255 router will have one lan ip static and one global ip(one it gets from service provider) you must manually give one address of 192.168.0.1 / 192.168.0.255 for your xbox. then give correct subnetmask (default 255.255.255.0) and gateway routers lan ip (default 192.168.0.254) you can aslo put routehrs lan ip as default dns if needed dmz or port forwarding is a tool in your router settings you can assign outside ports to specific ip i have only done manual port forwarding, not sure how dmz works.

How do you get connection in a sb4200 motorola


1. If you have a modem, connect the modem to the router(make sure modem should be connected to the port on which LAN, Internet, WAN is mentioned. It would be a separate one port on the router) and router to the computer.
2. Insert the disk that came with the router, inside the computer.
3. Follow the on screen instructions.
4.No, connect to the wireless. OR

Have one ethernet for computer want to use xbox live so i take out the ethernet from computer and put it in xbox unplug wait plug back in turn still will not connect red x for modem


You should get a cable/dsl router/switch or wireless cable/dsl router/switch and put it between your Modem and network nodes (IE your computer and xbox 360)

So it is modem to router wan port

Xbox 360 to router lan port
Computer to router lan port

You can purchase one cheaply at best buy
look at this link

Im trying to hook up my xbox and get on the internet by using a linksys


Physically connect the XBox to one of the LAN connection of the router or be connected wirelessly.

If unable to connect to the Internet open these ports using the router under virtual server or port forwarding:

TCP 80, 3074 and 53

UDP 88, 3074 and 53

Note: Also the IP address of the XBox should be open to the section.

I have just purchased a dlink dir 635 router and am trying to set it up on my Bigpond cable broadband internet. previously I had only a Motorola SBG900 gateway between cable and pc. I now have the new...


The motorola sbg900 is acting as a router itself. I'm assuming this is what you've got? http://promo.bigpond.com/homenetwork/html_new.php

So first, go into your d-link router settings and make sure the THIRD number in the IP address is the same as your modem's ip address. This third number is the "subnet", and it must be teh same for both router and modem.

e.g. if your motorola users ip 192.168.2.1, make sure your d-link is set to 192.168.2.2. Make sure the fourth number is different, but the 1st 2nd and 3rd numbers are the same.

You can figure out what your motorola's ip is by connecting it to your computer, make sure your interent is working, and then run "ipconfig" from a command prompt window. Look for the "Default Gateway" IP. That's your motorola's ip address.

Once the IP addresses match, go into your router's settings and disable the "DHCP server".

Next, plug a network cable to go from one of the LAN ports on your motorola to one of the LAN ports on your d-link. Note that it is LAN port to LAN port. The "internet/wan" port on the d-link is never used for anything.

At this point your d-link will be operating like a "Switch", it knows it is just an extension of your existing network and it won't collide and cause you problems like it was before.

Wireless access point connecting to router...


The question is how do you want to cable the netgear and what do you want to do with it.

If you cable a lan port of the DLink to the Netgear WAN port you will have two subnets that must be addressed differently. Opening up and forwarding the ports for XBox could be difficult.

I believe cabling the Netgear as an access point makes more sense. CONFIGURE THE NETGEAR BEFORE CABLING. This is achieved by wiring a lan port on the DLINK to a lan port on the netgear and ignoring the wan port on the netgear. This will involve configuring several router items that should be completed before the devices are cabled together. You will need to remember the Netgear's new network address and probably use a static IP address from a computer to configure it back into being a router after these changes, if required. Or reset the configuration to factory default following the users guide.

First the Netgear needs DHCP turned off as it will be part of the DLink's network and not a separate subnet - the DLink will perform the DHCP services.

Second the LAN side of the Netgear will need a static IP address in the DLink's network. This is where it may get tricky for you. Verify the DLink has an IP Address like 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask like 255.255.255.0. That means all IP Addresses in your network start 192.168.0.??? where ??? is unique for your network. Verify your DLink router has a set of addresses reserved in the DHCP setup for dynamic address assignment these addresses like 192.168.0.100 to 192.168.0.199. If the above is true or with the information you extract from you DLink router you need to determine where you can create static IP addresses -- in the above case 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.99 are available. You need to assign one of those like 192.168.0.2 to the LAN side of the NetGear Router. You will probably want to assign another to the XBox == like 192.168.0.20. You will probably need to deal with opening ports or placing the XBox into the DMZ of the DLINK router which will require a static IP Address.

Now cable the devices

When considering the XBox Configuration below the DLink is the router that must be configured to allow the open ports or DMZ access to the Xbox == the netgear is not functioning as a router in this configuration.


Check out the following links on XBox Configuration if required.

The second link may be the best to start with.

The generic connection and configuration document
