Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

Open Question

I have a pair of the comtrend powergrid 9020 ethernet adaptors (not sure if got all that down in the right order...) I use them to connect my xbox 360 games consol to the router in the downstairs part of my house for online game play. when i first got them it worked fine, then for some reason they stopped working. ive spent months trying to solve the problem and fix them using guides online but to be honest, i dont really know what im doing... PLEASE HELP. the end point adaptors LED colours are: AP = green, ethernet = blinking green, status = red. i am using the end point adaptor in my room, upstairs to connect tot he console. The LED colours for the access point adaptor, used downstairs to connect to the modem/router (i dont know the difference) are the same as above (green, blinking green, red) Ive tried following everything the instruction manual says but im getting no where, please help me im very agitated that i bought these and i dont know how to work them! thankyou. scott.

Ok I had the same problem try this if this doesn't solve your problem call Microsoft.

First, Unplug everything including harddrive.

SOURCE: belkin router not working with my xbox 360 console

There is a solution to this issue. There is a patch that Belkin never released to the public and I will not be one to do it. You can contact me for the fix.

SOURCE: nes flashing black and white and making a horrible sound

a 'front load' nes ALWAYS does this, even if the connector pins inside the console are new. the cartriges on a Front Load nes rarely completely seat, as Nintendo redesigned the Famicom very poorly for the US market. try this 1. put the cart in as usual, but hold it all the way down 2. slip an unwanted/extra cart in on top of the metal hoop above the cart your using. this gives a better contact for the cart. try cleaning the cartrige pins as well. some won't read right if there's ANYTHING on the pins.

(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router... you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wired router...)

Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet... so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to the wireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type into your browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to find your router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd... then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router address will be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browser and login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize it because you will need it later...if you have not changed the password its usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once you are logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports for your xbox 360 for it to be able to connect to xbox live with an open NAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once you get to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports for best performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forward these ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88 UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled... find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to 192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come in handy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go to network settings and manually change your settings... so if you have your ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me... change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computers that connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses... so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it so there arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told you to minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the command box into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in th e dns settings... first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are done with that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computer to your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... network connections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wireless connection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... and click on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

SOURCE: wireless router cannot connect to XBOX Live

I have a linksys 10/ 1000 card and a 2wire wirless router and had the same problem. You need to go to your control panel and double click the wireless network. Once you set it up you need to make sure that if you have a firewall that the xbox has permission to access the net. Also all wireless devices have a security measure some have WEP keys and others have passwords you need to find out what yours is.

Wont allow me to share my internet , its hooked up to wifi i want to run a cord to my xbox to give it internet possible?


Yes this is possible. You will need to bridge connections between your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet ports.

Navigate to Network connections, select both your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet adaptor. Now right click and select "bridge connections"

Take care!

How to connect to xbox live with laptop xp and dongle no router


You have to enable internet connection sharing on your laptop. Go to Start-->Control Panel-->Network Connections.
A screen will pop up with all of your NICs (network interface cards). Right click your dongle and select Properties.
At the top of the new window you will see an Advanced tab. Select that tab, and then check internet connection sharing.
You may or may not see an additional drop down menu that will allow you to select the interface to share with. If you do, select the Ethernet connection and then apply.
Connect your XBOX by Ethernet to your laptop. You may have to test the connection through your XBOX network setup.
If you have a firewall, you may have to allow this new connection, and do additional changes to your firewall in order to adjust your NAT (network address translation), however, I have been able to play on live with limited NAT.
***** IMPORTANT***** Make sure you have unlimited data through your provider or you will get an outrageous bill. I have Clear wireless on an unlimited plan, and it works fine. If you have Verizon, you will be sorry when your next bill arrives.

My router was hit by lighting. I replaced the router. The Xbox works fine, but I can longer play online. I replaced ther cable also. I think lighting may have damage the ethernet connection on the xbox


Lighting may have damaged the ethernet connection on the xbox. Take can connect your computer to the same lan port connection that you are connecting the xbox to and see if you can get on line. If so you may be able to save the xbox if you go wireless and install the wireless adaptor.

Have laptop with internet but want to share it with xboxs


Yes, simply set up laptop as a mini server (Wireless) at the other end of the house (Where the Xboxes are) and ensure it has the WEP key installed when asked to access the router / internet. Buy a router adapter for each Xbox 360 that connects to them in the RJ45 slot and connect thru the laptop agian using the WEP key that you should have installed in the Router.

How do you hook up xbox 360 to cricket a600 broadban


Yes, but if you want to connect the X-box and computer directly you may need to get a crossover cable. Sorry, I can't say for sure on this as it depends on the network card in the PC.

You should have a box in the configuration dialog for the Cricket saying something like "Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection". Be sure this box is checked.

Please follow the steps below to setup your Xbox with your Linksys Router:
  1. With your Xbox powered down, take an Ethernet cable and plug it into a numbered port on the router, and plug the other end into the Xbox.
