Running two xbox live 360

Hi
my boys each have a white xbox live 360.
I have comcast service running into a cable mode and into a 8 port cable/dsl router that are are wired teach xbox The Linksys router is model BEFSR81. I contacted Linksis to unrestrict the NAT from strict to open
Everything seemed to run fine but recently when one of my sons goes onto play, he is able to identify his players and begin a game. when my other son turns his box on, it seaches for players, identifies them them restarts the seach for players again and essentially does not allow him to begin a game. Whoever turns their Xbox on fr a game first I gues is the winner. The router is new and modem and wiring all check out fine
On the network page of the Xbox, all iems pass when a test is run.
many thanks Gregg

Hi,

A couple of things you can try:
1. do a full hard reset of the router. This is done by pressing on a small recess button at the rear of the LinkSys. Of course doing this will revert the unit back to factory default. Pls have all configurations and settings backed up or written down;
2. Try using static IP adds at each XBox (if able);
3. verify that the DHCP feature is enable in the LinkSys.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello there.

A router shares your internet connection with local computers and devices on your local area network. Microsoft's xbox live requires a connection to your IP address on a certain port. This will be a problem when using 2 xboxes so what you would need to do is contact your Internet Service Provider, explain that you are using a router and require an additional Static IP Address.

Once they provide you the details for this, you can manually set up one of the xboxes with the static details your isp has given you.

This should stop the 2 xbox conflicting over connecting to the internet, as they will be running on seperate ip addresses.

Hope this helps.

How to connect Xbox 360 to modem


Hi Nacee..
Hope your r good there!

Anyways...First thing you should do is turn off your computer, cable or DSL modem and XBOX 360. Then you should hook an Ethernet cable from the cable modem to the Ethernet port on the back of your XBOX 360. Then power up your cable mode and then power up your XBOX 360.

It says it cant connect to xbox live even though i have a ethernet cable hooked up to my lab top running to the back of my xbox 360.


Depending upon your Internet setup connecting your XBox cannot give you Internet access to XBox Live.
For a least complicated method, you need to connect the XBox to a DSL or cable modem that has Internet connection via your Internet Service Provider.

How is your laptop connected to the Internet?
This information would assist me to help you.

Hi,

You need a router not a hub or a switch. with the help of the router you can share the comcast cable internet on multiple devices. A hub or a switch can not do this.

Get it replaced with a router. You can buy Linksys or Netgear router.

How do i configure a wireless adapter for xbox live


To use the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter with Xbox Live, you must have a high-speed Internet connection (cable or DSL).


Your wireless networking adapter is designed to attach directly to the back of your Xbox 360™ console.

1008d wanting to know what to plug in


Hi,

The D-Link DES-1008d is an unmanaged switch that does not need any configuration to work. You just need to plug in your device (PC/Xbox/Laptop) into one of the ports of the switch, using an ethernet patch cord, and it would start communicating with it. I think your xbox 360 already includes a patch cable in the box. You also need to connect the 1008d to your DSL/Cable/whatever modem, using a similar ethernet patch cord, in order to get online.

This is all that you need to do as far as your 1008d is concerned.

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

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

Yes and No, you can use the phone line for internet access to your xbox, but unfortunatelly, X-Box Live requires a high speed modem, or DSL Service, like verizon, or Comcast.
