You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6 router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.
Assign a Static IP address on the Xbox 360 console:
Power on your Xbox 360 and go to the System area.
Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
Select Manual and then enter the following settings:
IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or any 10.0.0.x IP address, where x is between 100 and 250)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Select Done, to go back to the Edit Settings screen.
Select DNS Settings. The Edit DNS Settings screen opens.
Select Manual and then enter the following setting:
Primary DNS Server: 10.0.0.2
It is not necessary to enter a Secondary DNS Server.
Power down your Xbox 360.
Access the Zoom Configuration Manager:
From a computer that is connected to the Zoom X6, open a web browser and type http://10.0.0.2 in the address line and then press Enter (or Return).
Enter the User Name and Password (in lowercvase letters):
User Name: admin
Pasword: zoomadsl (where "l" is a lowercase letter L)
Create a Virtual Server rule to put the Xbox 360 on a DMZ:
In the Zoom Configuration Manager, click on the Advanced Setup icon at the top page.
Click on the Virtual Server/DMZ button.
On the Virtual Server/DMZ page, enter the following settings:
Internal IP Address: 10.0.0.150 (or whichever Static IP address you selected per Step 1)
Start Port: 0
End Port: 0
Click Save Changes
Click the Enable box, if you have this option.
Click Write Settings to Flash
Plug the Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter in to the Xbox 360 console. If you are not sure how to do this, please refer to the manual that came with the Adapter.
Select the Zoom wireless network on the Xbox 360. (Note: The following steps assume you have a working wireless network with WEP or WPA security enabled and you know the Key and SSID of the network. If you have not done this, please refer to theFAQ on setting up a wireless network with the Zoom X6.)
Power on your Xbox 360 and go the System area.
Select Network Settings and then Wireless Network.
Enter the SSID of your network
Enter the Security Key for your wireless encryption. This must be either WPA or WEP. If you use WEP, you must enter the HEX digits for the Key you are using.
Power the Xbox 360 off, wait a few seconds, and then power the Xbox 360 back on.
Go to the System area.
Select Network Settings.
Select Test Xbox Live Connection. If everything is configured correctly, all the tests will show Pass.
Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Xbox 360 with Xbox Live.
Do you have DSL service, if so, your phone line should connect directly to the router if you have a DSL router, otherwise, you will need to connect your DSL modem to the uplink on your router via a Cat 5 cable with an RJ45 connector. The first step is to make sure you have a persistent DSL connection, check out the first box as it connects to the wall outlet and make sure you have a solid green light. If not call tech support.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Zoom X6 routers don't work with either Kindles or Nooks- it seems the connect on demand to save power confuses the Zoom router - typically requiring the unpractical fix of rebooting the router every two minutes.
is it wireless connection or ethernet? Zoom routers have a firewall and when you have something connected that the firewall doesnt like (Xbox 360 or Gaming) it will drop the connection. goto zoom.com/x6 and it will give you instruction on how to by-pass the firewall using an different IP address.
Yes the router assigns an internal IP address. connect it up then using your PC go into the configuration of your router (http://10.0.0.2) and look under system status, scroll to the bottom and under DCHP status you will see a list of all clients connected. Your Xbox will be listed along with its internal IP address.
Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
you need a ethernet network card, if you want it connected to the x6 directly, or you can get a wireless card for the desktop.
the instruction for setup the x6 is straightforward. but you need to follow it to the letter, otherwise it won't work.
