I have a xbox 360 tryin to get on the xbox live but wont let me


1. go into your modem through internet browser and type in ip address...(type find my ip address in google if you dont know it).
2. Enter username/password...("admin" is usually the username/password by default...if you cant get in, there is a reset button on your modem...very small...might need a pin to poke inside...PUSH AND HOLD IN FOR 30SECONDS and repeat step 1 and carry on from there).
3. Find these settings in the modem: -LOCAL NETWORK / UPNP......enable it -DMZ HOST.......type in your ip address you typed in to get into your modem....(you might not have DMZ which is even better so don't worry about it).
-VIRTUAL SERVERS/PORTFORWARDING.....type in the following:select custom service or name and type in i.e XBOX360 AND TYPE THESE IN:Port start 3074 port end 3074 and TCP protocolPort start 27014 port end 27050 and TCP protocolPort start 3074 port end 3074 and UDP protocolPort start 3478 port end 4380 and UDP protocolPort start 27000 port end 27030 and UDP protocol
5. reboot modem.
6. Go in XBOX network settings and in basic settings manually type an ip address that is within your dhcp range...( dont worry what this means just follow the example) to your normal ip address i.e if your ip address is 10.1.1.1 then you would use 10.1.1.100 etc, 255.255.255.0 in subnet mask and your main ip address in gateway.
7. DNS settings should be automatic.
8. reboot XBOX you are ready to go.

HOPEFULLY :P

My ip adress on my xbox keeps failing the test. what should i do?


Try setting them up with a static IP address. Meaning set it manually including the IP address, DNS servers, subnet mask, gateway.

Error when connecting to the internet: error (80130804).


This means that your PS3 is not able to get an IP address from your wireless network/router. I would suggest set the IP address manually on your PS3 including the DNS IP address.

I can play any game online fine, but when it comes to fifa i send my friend an invite he accepts then nothing happens it just comes up this game session is no longer active, or when i do get a game it says...


You need to either give your PS3 a static IP address and then put that IP in DMZ in your router, or you need to open up the ports it tells you in the Fifa 09 manual.

 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PS3 Console) 

Firstly, you will need to assign your PS3 a static internal Ip address. This means that everytime your PS3 connects or "talks" to your router, the router will assign it a different internal IP address. These IP addresses typically run in series. So for example, if your PS3 is the second device communicating with your router, then it will be assigned an ip address of 192.168.1.3. However, if you choose to use your PS3 without the computer being on, the assigned IP address your PS3 has will be 192.168.1.2. As this is different, and obviously will change, it would be stupid setting a DMZ up on one of the above Ip addresses, unless your PS3 was the only device that would ALWAYS connect using that specific IP. 

To make sure that your PS3 is always assigned the same internal IP address by your router, you will need to go to the "Settings > Network Settings > Internet Connection Settings" option on the PS3 Cross bar menus. 

You will be presented with an option which primarily asks whether you are using a Wired or Wireless connection. Obviously, you will choose the option which refers to you. If choosing the Wireless option you will need to input the security details in use on your router *If you are not currently using wireless security, i strongly reccommend you do so ASAP* 

Both selections should show a page called "Address Settings". Here you will need to select "Custom". Another page will then display entitled "IP Address Setting". The option "Manual" will need to be selected. 

This will display a page where customisable IP Addresses are available to be selected. 

IP Address - This will need to have the Static IP address in it. Personally, i use 192.168.1.100. I use this because it is extremely unlikely my Router will ever automatically assign this IP Address to a device, as i will never have 99 other devices connected to the same system. 

Subnet Mask - Is always set to 255.255.255.0 

Default Router - Is the internal IP Address of your router. 
To get the exact ip of your router you should go to 
Start 
Run 
cmd [Hit Enter] 
Type in ipconfig and hit enter, this should come up with all the ip addresses to do with your computer and the network. The address you will need to enter in this option is listed as "Default Gateway". 

Primary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

Secondary DNS - Same IP Address as "Default Router" 

After entering all of these IP Addresses, you will now click "Enter" or hit the "right" button on the D-Pad. This will take you to a screen which says "MTU" at the top. My setup has this as Automatic, solely because i haven't a clue what MTU actually means or does.This won't affect your ability to set up a DMZ. 

The next steps are very simple. You do not want to use a proxy server unless you connect to the internet using one, however i can be of no help there, and you should enable UPnP if your router supports it. 

To put your PS3 into a DMZ (To be done on the PC) 

Now head over to your PC, and load up your internet browser. In the Address Bar, type the IP Address of your router (the one you found using the Command Prompt earlier) 

This will take you to your Router Configuration Page. 

Every router interface differs from an other, and depending on what router firmware update you last installed, router interfaces can differ, even on the same model routers. This means that you will need to search the router config page yourself. You are looking for any mention of "DMZ" or "DMZ Host" 

When you have found this, it will ask you generally to input the IP Address of your DMZ Host, which is just the static IP address you assigned to your PS3 earlier, my example was 192.168.1.100, so we'll stick with that. Then click "apply" or similar. 

You should then turn off everything running on your home network. PS3, PC, Router etc. This is solely to make sure that the changes are applied as soon as possible. 

This should fix all of the problems as listed earlier in this guide, and probably some other issues
