Open the router interface (192.168.2.1), by connecting a computer hard-wired to your router and ensure modem is also connected.
On the far left side, Click on Firewall and disable it.
Click on DMZ under firewall and assign an IP: 192.168.2.25 after enabling DMZ.
Assign the IP settings manually on your X-Box too.
IP: 192.168.2.25
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway/Router: 192.168.2.1
Assign DNS settings manually on your X-Box: Primary: 4.2.2.2; Secondary: 4.2.2.1
Click on Wi-Fi Protected Setup, disable this feature.
Click on Security under WIRELESS, change it to 64-bit WEP and enter tour phone no. as wireless key under key1.
Check if the firmware version on the router is: 1.00.17, else upgrade it.
Save the router settings.
Restore the router to factory defaults
Restore the saved settings on the router now.
Unplug the power from modem, router and X-Box.
Connect power to modem 1st, router 2nd and finally X-Box and now check.

For further clarifications, please revert!
Thanks for asking.

Lagging on a xbox 360 with a 320gb hard drive


It is not only the memory to check when your xbox is lagging. You need to check if you are connected wirelessly for it might be interferrences issues. You need to connect via ethernet cable first to isolate wireless issue. Once connected via ethernet cable and still lagging you can check the bandwith issue. Make sure that when connected to your computer/tower, its only the xbox in use. Turn off any computer, laptop, any wireless device that might be using the internet.

Can i connect to xbox live using vodafone mobile broardband usb stick


hi there,
you can't connect the usb stick to the xbox directly, but you can connect your xbox to your pc/laptop with the broadband usb stick in your pc/laptop and share the connection. while this will work, it's not going to be very fast and if you intend to play games online there will be a big lag. But it's better than nothing if that is all you have for internet connection. Anyway here's how. connect your laptop to your xbox using an ethernet cable, and have your usb dongle in your pc/laptop connected to the internet.
now depending on what os(operating system) you have on your computer, navigate to control panel>network and sharing>manage network connections.
once in here you want to enable sharing on your connection and tick the box allow other users to connect through this computers connection. then you want to select local area connection on the home network connection menu.
now you can test your xbox live connection to see if it connects to the internet, if it does happy gaming :)
If it fails, try making your connection to a public rather than private connection. If this method fails, try restarting your pc/laptop and then your xbox and go through the process again.
I know this can be tricky and alot of trial and error, but if this is all you have to connect to the internet and you really want to get online then it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.

We start playing the game on line it freezes and it also says the lobby is closed


Which game? some games give the host the ability to "kick" some players from the lobby. Some use this as a way to gain advantage during the game if they are losing. You also may be experiencing lag or internet connectivity issues.

Nba live08 lagging on-line


Try starting a game with people you know locally, if your ping between users is too high it will be perceived as lag. when the server catches up with you, your system misses the refresh cycle with the other players and it disconnects you. a more responsive internet helps. Also if you are at a NAT3 connection it can cause problems. check your internet settings and see what it says, there are many online guides to setting to a lower NAT.

Hope this helps.

Speed


no not really, but 54mps is a wireless speed not the actual internet connection speed... if your lagging try wire the xbox and see if that fix's

you could also disable the wep/wpa security for the xbox and hardcode the xbox MAC address into your router
