Using wrt120n with 2 xbox360: what's the secret?

Using Linksys wrt120n with 2 xbox360: what's the secret? I've tried port forwarding, port triggering and DMZ. When one of us connects to xbox live, the other one disconnects. Both XBOX360s have static IP. One XBOX360 is on a wireless connection, the other is plugged in through ethernet port 2. There is something seriously wrong with this router if it can't handle something my WRT54GL handled for over 3 years before it burned out.

Please follow the steps below to setup your Xbox with your Linksys Router:

  1. With your Xbox powered down, take an Ethernet cable and plug it into a numbered port on the router, and plug the other end into the Xbox.
  2. After you have your Xbox connected to the router, start up the Xbox without a CD in the tray.
  3. After you start the unit, you should arrive at the “Xbox Dashboard”. Select the Xbox Live option and press the “a” button on the controller.
  4. After “Xbox Live” loads select the Network Setup and press the “a” button your controller.
  5. On the “IP Address” settings, you can choose “Automatic” or “Manual”, make sure it’s Automatic.
  6. Select the Connect option and press the “a” button on the controller.
After you use the “Connect” option, the Xbox will detect the network cable, and will ask you if you want to connect to Xbox Live.

Unfortunately, you can't use two routers together in that manner. You must have a device in between them such as a switch or bridge or you'll have to disable the DHCP server settings in the second router. The second router then pretty much becomes a switch you may then use all the ports on the second router with the exception of the WAN port it must remain unoccupied. However, if you need wireless connectivity in another location far away from your main router then your only solution would be to indeed purchase an actual access point/bridge device

Port 80


You need to login to the router, and enable "port-forwarding" so that incoming traffic (80/TCP) is redirected to the ONE computer on your private network that is running a web-server that is "listening" on 80/TCP.

Cannot connect to Wireless with my Linksys WRT120N Router.


If you have 2 devices not be able to connect to it suddenly, then it is probably the router that changed, as opposed to it being the 2 devices changing at the same time. Sometimes wireless routers just go bad like that.Try a factory reset, and then set the appropriate settings back to where you need them. If that doesn't help, you likely need a new one.

Forgot my password for wrt120n


Looking for the Linksys WRT120N default password? You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad if you've forgotten the WRT120N default password.

However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device, the WRT120N default password suddenly becomes very important.

For most versions of the Linksys WRT120N, the default password is admin. As with most passwords, the WRT120N default password is case sensitive.

In addition to the WRT120N default password, you can also see the WRT120N default username and WRT120N default IP address in the table below.

Note: The Linksys WRT120N default password may be different for certain hardware orfirmware versions.

If I have that information, I'll include the exact WRT120N version number along with the correct default password. You can usually find your Linksys WRT120N version number on the bottom of the router.

Be sure to change the default router password on your WRT120N to something more secure as soon as you're in. Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WRT120N password.
Help! The WRT120N Default Password Doesn't Work!

At some point during the life of your particular Cisco Linksys WRT120N, the default password, username, and/or IP address might have been changed.

In most cases, if the Linksys WRT120N default IP address has been changed, the new IP address for the WRT120N will be the same as the default gateway IP address configured for your network connection.

See How To Find the Default Gateway IP Address for help.

In situations where the WRT120N default password or WRT120N default username has changed, you'll need to reset the Linksys WRT120N to factory defaults. You can usually do that via a special button or sequence of actions.

The WRT120N manual will have specific directions for performing a factory default reset. You can download the manual for the WRT120N from Linksys Support.

Please let me know if any of the WRT120N default login data below needs updated. For other questions about the WRT120N default information on this page, see my Default Password FAQ.

I can not play xbox because security is to high how do i chance it


you need to give your xbox a static ip address.
on your linksys router go to internet explorer. browse to http://192.168.1.1
default login is blank password is admin
go to Click the Security link near the top of the page.

Remove the checkmark from the Block Anonymous Internet Requests checkbox.

Click the Save Settings button near the bottom of the page.

Click the Applications & Gaming link near the top of the page.

You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Range Forward.


We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Xbox Live 360 requires you to forward the following ports: 53,80,88,1863,3074. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Range Forward menu.


port forward the following ports up above to the ip address that you set your xbox 360 to.

WRT120N doesn;t permit VPN accesses


Most times when VPN is not working is because one of the ports is not forwarding right. Easy fix is to go to router settings and enable DMZ for your computers IP address. Also you can actually find out what are the ports this VPN uses and go to Port Forwarding part of router and open the ports manually. My favorite is DMZ. All this does is open up ports for your computer IP address so there is no blocked pockets. Good luck.
