Usually the wifi on a home grade switch or router only seems to last about 1 to maybe 2 years before dieing. The wifi drops more and more then stops and then eventually the wired will stop as well. There are other brands that last longer such as D-link and Netgear. Unfortunetly Linksys seems to be not that good and I wouldn't recommend it right now. The cost of a new router is pretty low and the odd sale makes them cheaper.
We replace a few hundred of these a year and have tried everything we and the company engineers could think of the revive them. Basically the only thing is to replace. You can sometimes get a few weeks or months out of them by doing a restore but even that only works for so long and then they will just die.

From Activision's website:
If you are having a problem connecting to an online game check the following:
  • Make sure that you are playing in WiFi. This game will not work over 3G.

  • Disable any firewall or security features on your router


  • Set port forwarding on your router to the IP address of your iPhone/iPod Touch. This game uses ports 3074 and 3478 (UDP/TCP)

    - Place your iPhone/iPod Touch into the DMZ of your router

    - If your modem supports a wireless connection then try turning off the router and connect wirelessly directly to the modem. If it works regularly at this point something about your router may not be completely compatible with the specific needs of this game. Check with your router manufacturer for additional steps that may need to be done to resolve the issue you are having.

    NOTE: If setting port forwarding or DMZ helps your connection issue, you may want to assign your iPhone/iPod Touch a static IP address within your home network. This can help to ensure that the configurations you made do not need to be done again.

    NOTE: Many broadband internet modems are coming with routing capabilities built in. Please contact your internet service provider to determine if your internet modem has an integrated router. If it does, they should be able to assist you with the steps above for setting up your router.

I think you need to ring your internet provider and they will enable xbox live from their side. Its fairly simple and they will know what your talking about.

make sure that internet connection working fine first..if it is connect you xbox via wired or wireless(if wireless, make sure that you connect to your own wireless network and enter the wireless security if there is)...check if you can get an ip address, better set to obtain the ip address and dns of your xbox, if all set and still unable to access internet, access the linksys router setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of your internet explorer, when pop-up for username and password type admin under password, leave it empty for the username. Click administration tab and disabled UPnP. Check if your X-BOX working fine. Hope this help you.

Truemobil 2300 cannot access internet via wireless


Is there a computer or another device connected to this router that can access the internet?

IF yes -- by wire?
IF yes - by wireiess?

The more of the above that is true the less we need to research.

Initially I will assume (until informed otherwise) your router is working both via the wire and wireless to the internet.

IF you have a working wireless computer --

When it was configured did you load an wireless SSID (name)?

Where you required to enter a passpharase, password or network key?

Did you provide any entries to the following fields during configuration for the computer's wireless.
IP Address --------- (like 192.168.1.?)
Subnet Mask -------(often 255.255.255.0)
Default Gateway - (router lan address like 192.168.1.1)
DNS Address ----- (maybe the router lan address or
---------------------------- as supplied by your
-------------------------------- internet service provider)

Being able to answer the above is a requirement for completing the steps outlined below

The generic connection and configuration document
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/setup/xbox.mspx

This is a good description of possible router options. These suggest strongly the creation of a static IP address for the XBox to enable all functionality in the online environment, if desired.

If you need assistance setting this up in your environment leave a comment on this problem and I will respond.
