I am wondering if there is a way to hook my linksys router up to another router that will pick up the signal so that an xbox360 can plug an ethernet cord directly into the back of it. We tried two different wireless cards for the xbox, and they do not work, but the port works fine. So, is there a way to link two routers without running wires so that the xbox can run off that signal?

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router. Click here for step by step instructions
You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.
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
How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
I have the same router (WRT300N) and this is what I did. I don't know if it will work for more than one Xbox360.
- Go to the Setting of the router.
- Applications & Gaming
. Enable the DMZ
. Choice the Mac Adress under the Destination.
. If you don't know the Mac Adress of your Xbox360 click on the tab: DHCP CLIENT TABLE
.Now from there choice your Xbox360 ( the Xbox360 won't have a Client Name but hopefully you only have your Xbox360 and your computer)
and now save your setting and restart your Xbox360 and there you go NAT open. This also help if you get any kind of LAG while someone is on the computer using the internet, your Xbox360 will be high priorty to the router.
HOPE THAT HELP
