Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router

1 Answer

My router can no longer connect to my xbox live. It began as a problem where i had to restart my modem in order to get connection on either my laptop or xbox but now, only my laptop can be connected to the wifi but xbox live cannot. When i called my cable company about the modem, they were getting a perfect signal from the modem and concluded that my router was the problem. Any advice?

You need to register the router to your internet provider so that the modem will always give an internet connection to the router even if the router will be reset.

from that the xbox should follow through and connect to xbox live if you have an open NAT type.

    Why isnt my xbox connecting? i plugged the cble into the rouder and then put the other cable into the xbox and its not letting me connect.


    To make a router connection to Xbox Live:
    1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
    2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
    3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
    4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
    5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
    6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
    7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console with no disc in the disc tray.
    8. If you've already used your Xbox 360 system for offline play, the Xbox Dashboard will open to the Xbox Live area. Select the Xbox Live banner. When you see the Xbox Live Marketplace you'll know you're connected to Xbox Live.

    Xbox360


    Hello taz1028,

    In order for you to be able to log into Xbox Live, you will need to have DSL or Broad Band internet connect in your home. Once you have that, you will be able to connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Modem that the internet provider gives you. If you wish to able to connect both the Xbox and your notebook to the modem you will then need a router or a wireless router. So, if you do not have DSL or Broad Band Internet service in your home, you will not be able to log into Xbox Live.

    Sincerely,

    Agent Xiong

    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.

    Help connecting to XBOX Live


    If the modem is not connected to a computer, you have no need for a router. Try restarting the modem with the XBOX connected, that might do it.
