Problem with my xbox 360 and ps3

I have an The Sound Blaster? X-Fi Platinum Fatalty with front PanelAnyway, I'm trying to hook up my 360 to my x-fi so I can get surround sound. I plug the optical cable to the digital input on the front Panel digital-in then?
?when I turn my 360 on the initial screen I get sound but thats it. No sound?in the dashboard or in the 360 I select the digital output and turned?on dashboard sounded,but there is still no sound. :mansad::mansad:

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I have tried restoring the network settings and i have restarted router. I am just so disappointed because my ipod is the only one out of all my friends and family that does this(I know about 15 people with ipod touches and one with iphone). My router works fine with my ps3, xbox 360, and laptop. By the way, its not just my router. It does it with any of them. I have had friends that say their ipod has problems with album artwork too. And, if it makes a difference, it started doing this after i got an update via itunes. Also, the restores made it take longer to reconnect to the router so i really think its just my ipod. I guess im just gonna have to deal with it. Maybe version 3.0 will fix it just as 2.1 or so destroyed it.
One thing i just dont understand is why geek squad did what did to my ipod. I told them that it wouldnt stay connected to my router and the guy tested my battery and hard drive. What does this have to do with that? He also told me to restore it. I mean, no offense to geek squad, but my brother could go in there and teach these guys how to do this. He didnt go to college for this stuff either but he built all of our computers and anytime we have a problem, he knows exactly what to do. He also owns his own computer business and helps people fix their computers. The only problem is that he hates apple so he knows nothing about it. Apple is getting so annoying, coming out with newer versions of things every few months and making so much crap that no one needs. I just cant wait until microsoft steps it up and makes a touch screen, internet and email compatible, zune. Sorry, this is just so annoying and disappointing.

    the nat type for xbox 360 and ps3, what is it when you set the router up out of the box? are the nat types open moderate or strict

    Hi there. It actually depends if the gaming consoles ports are not blocked by your ISP. Moderate NAT type limits your connection playing online games, Strict does not allow you any connection at all while Open allows you to play with everyone online. Have you had a router before with Open NAT on the gaming consoles? Try to check without the router by going directly to the modem and see if your NAT type is open or strict or moderate. If ever modem is fine and it is the router not working right you can port forward ports on the router. I found these usual ports online, for XBOX live:TCP and UDP ports:  80-88, 3074-3074, 4267-4269. For PS380, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480, 5223, 8080 and UDP: 3478, 3479.

  • Using the Airport with an Xbox 360 and such

    Hey guys I'm thinking of buying a new Airport Extreme N for my home since my linksys router is being stubborn. I have an xbox 360 and i was wondering if it worked well with it. What i mean is it faster with the Extreme and is it very reliable. Thanks guys for helping me out and have a Merry Christmas. --- Vinny the Pooh

    I just got the Airport for Christmas and it only took a couple of minutes to set up with my xbox 360 and all of my computers connected right away. The signal is twice as good as the signal with my linksys router was. Much better for xbox live. Good luck

  • After 7.3.1, extremely slow wireless on Xbox 360 and PS3

    Everything was running good on my PS3 and Xbox 360 connected wireless to my Airport Extreme. I upgraded to 7.3.1 and now things are running very slow. I also saw some very slow transfers from one Macbook Pro to another, both connected via Wireless N (0.5 MB/sec).
    I'd reset the router and modem and have no idea what the deal is. Anybody have any thoughts? I tried connecting my PS3 and Xbox 360 with an ethernet cable and speeds go back to normal. Too bad I can't run a wire where I am now.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    I'm a bit lay entering this discussion. But I too experienced this problem with my PS3. I benchmarked my AirPort with my old DL524-UP, and amazingly, the AirPort was about 30 to 50% slower both on my PS3 and my PC. So I checked out the settings on the D Link to figure out a variable that might be having an impact. I noticed that the D Link was configured to Channel 6. So I changed the AirPort settings from auto to Channel 6, did another benchmark, and what do you know. Suddenly my PS3 and PC are downloading beautifully. So that's my solution to this widespread problem - manually select channel 6!

  • Problem with two Xbox 360's being online at same time with WRT54GS router

    Hey guys, I have a bit of an annoying problem. I have multiple 360 consoles which are occasionally online at the same time. When one is on, it either causes connection problems with the other or blocks the other from signing on all together. Both are using the official wireless adapters and are hooked up to my WRT54GS. Usually when one of them fails at the connection test, it's a DNS failure, but it has occasionally been an IP failure. 
    I've already tried:
    -setting them both up with static IPs. This caused NAT issues and didn't really fix the problem with one of the consoles kicking the other off.
    -forwarding ports to one while leaving the other alone, setting one up in a DMZ while leaving the other alone, and setting one up in a DMZ and forwarding the ports to the other. All three trials showed no improvement, and caused NAT problems. 
    Also yes, I do have UPnP enabled.
    This problem has been driving me up the wall for months now. No one I've talked to has been able to figure it out. If anyone can offer me a solution I will forever be in your debt. 

    You can set a Static Ip on Both the XBOX and then login to your router and do Port Triggering, this may solve your problem.

  • Problems with connecting xbox 360

    i cant connect my linksys wireless router (model wrt54gs) to my xbox 360, can anyone help.

    Are you trying to connect wirelessly or wired?
    Try being more specific to the problem like is your ip or dns failing maybe
    (You do know that you have to buy a game adapter for the 360 if you are trying to play wirelessly cause its not built in.)

  • Time Capsule problems with the xbox 360

    Im not going to type this all out again so i'll give you guys the link to my unanswered post on mac rumors.
    Can anyone help?

    Excellent. I did contact my ISP and cross-referenced their list with the bestselling cable modems on Looks like the Motorola SB5120 Surfboard modem works great. It also has an ethernet port and cable so I guess that'll connect easily to Time Capsule since you said I only need an ethernet cable.
    I guess I might have to make sure the initial setup goes good, in which case I might be back here to make sure I did that right.
    Thanks for the help though. At least I'll know that I'll have the right hardware that works with everything I have.

  • Xbox 360 and wrt54gs 7.2 problem

    i read the faqs and serached the forums i did not find an answer to what i am looking for i have a xbox 360 and i can not connect it to my computer for media center and it can not connect to xbox live i can use the xbox 360 connect directly to my cable modem and it connects to xbox live just fine so the problem must be the router. will some one please help me!

    Connect your computer straight to the modem and download the firmware file for your router from After downloading the firmware connect your modem to the Internet port on the router and connect your computer to port1 on the router...
    Press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds.Then, unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 Seconds.Plug the power back in, and keep holding down the reset button for 30 Seconds.Release the reset button.
    Open the Internet Explorer and type in the Address Bar and press enter. When it prompts for the username and password, leave the username field empty and provide password as admin all in lower cases and then click on ok. Now click on the 'Administration' tab- Then click on the 'Firmware Upgrade' sub tab- Here click on 'Browse' to select the extracted/uncompressed .img or .bin file and click on "Upgrade"...After doing the firmware upgrade you have to reset this router again for 30 seconds.
    Re-configure your router... forward the port nos on to your pc for the assinged ip address & reduce the MTU size to 1365 & you will be able to play the games wired as well as wireless.

  • Xbox 360 and Linksys E3000

    I'm having quite some trouble with the new E3000 and my Xbox 360 Slim Model. I thought that the E3000 had like 4 antennas which should broaden the SSID Broadcast/Wifi Signal. Now when I try to scan for wireless networks on my Xbox360 it can't find the signal the E3000 is broadcasting. The E3000 is on the bottom floor and the 360 is on the first floor. Before this I had a WRT54G Linksys router and that one had no problem getting signal to the Xbox360. The E3000 shouldn't have this problem right, because it has more antennas. Another weird thing is that my laptop, which almost sits next to my 360, has no trouble at all finding the SSID/WiFi broadcast...
    Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I just want to connect my E3000 to my Xbox 360.
    PS: I have upgraded to the latest firmware.

    Xbox 360 and Linksys E3000Bad news guys. Whatever you were told about the xbox 360 being compatible with wireless n at 5GHz was probably misleading. Please work through the following link: Work your way through this:-
    Pay attention to the following, and I quote from the above link:
    "...The Internal Wireless N Adapter for the Xbox 360 S 250GB
    As well as all of the points above to consider you also need to be aware that some Wireless N routers can work at 2.4GHz and 5GHz or both. <<<<The new internal Wireless N adapter will only work at 2.4Ghz>>>> so ensure you have this enabled. It has also been found that in some cases it does not work with WEP and prefers WPA2-PSK (sometimes called Personal) with AES encryption (not TKIP) so in summary for the internal wireless adapter these configureations seem to work best-"
    We could have saved everyone a lot of time if the XBOX 360 support would have just admitted this from the start. NO 5GHZ compatibility from XBOX Wireless N adapter.
    If there is a way to upgrade the wireless N adapter in the XBOX please post for the rest of us.

  • Airport Express in 802.11n mode with an Xbox 360

    I have an Airport Express (with software 7.5.2) and am having problems connecting my Xbox 360 in 802.11n mode.  I have an Xbox 360 (one year old, not the new 360 S Console) and an Xbox Wireless N Networking Adapter (Model 1398).
    I believe my Airport Express is working fine as I've been able to connect my MacBook and iPad 2 when I've run the Airport Express in any combination of modes -- 802.11g 2.4 or 5.0 GHz, 802.11b compatibility, etc. 
    I've also found that the Xbox will connect when I run the Airport Express in 802.11g mode, but it fails to connect in any n mode.  I've tried several combinations including varying the security -- WPA2 or no security at all.  Since the same Xbox and Apple hardware can connect when running in 802.11g mode, and I've got Apple devices talking to the AE in 802.11n mode, I'm suspecting the Xbox hardware.
    I've looked through a few forum posts here, and most of them seemed to be older and referenced a bug in an older version of the AE software.  At least one mentioned that the person had a defective Xbox wireless adapter, which I'm beginning to suspect.
    I've even turned on syslog logging on the Airport Express and used my MacBook as the syslog server.  Even though I've turned the Syslog level up to 7 (Debug) on the AE, I don't get any messages about Xbox connection attempts -- just successful connections from my iPad and MacBook.
    Any advice is appreciated!

    Hi. Thanks for the reply. It turns out that the router was not going into n mode because of the security I set on it. I finally figured this out and the AE did connect in n mode after all.
    Well at least it's working now but I feel a little bad for posting when it was my fault!!

  • Xbox 360 and toshiba 3tb external

    so i was at walmart in seekonk, ma last nite.. i wanted to store digital copies of my dvd's so i no longer have to deal with the actual dvd's everytime i my family and i wanted to watch movies...
    1 sales guy said i would need to get the external hard drive and wd tv live box.. connect the external to my wireless and the wd tv box to my tv.. i would be all set and the external would not work directly with the xbox 360.
    another sales guy said no, just connect it to the exbox and it will work.. the xbox will play the movies..
    now, i got hom how with just the exteranal, found out it had to be formated to fat32.. which the proper software "acronis disk director 11" will do the job - but costs $50.. neither one of the sales guys said anything about it being formated to fat32
    so here i am with my toshiba 3tb and still in the same predictament as before i even went there last nite.. just now i have an exteranl sitting on my kitchen table and less $120 in my wallet.
    so pi$$ed off.. do these people really know what the hell they are talking about? gonna go back up there at 10am when they open up and gonna talk to the store manager and give them a piece of my mind! and what's with the 10am crap? why don't they open at 9am like everyone else?

    "so i was at walmart in seekonk, ma last nite.. i wanted to store digital copies of my dvd's so i no longer have to deal with the actual dvd's everytime i my family and i wanted to watch movies..."
    Did you mean Best Buy? Otherwise, you have taken a wrong turn.
    That said, you don't need Acronis to reformat the drive to FAT32. Here's a free tool to do it:
    Also, you don't need any other special devices, the external alone should work..
    One problem you may face is that FAT32 has a 4GB file limit, so you won't be able to store any files larger than that. No way to work around that, as far as I know. 

  • Xbox 360 and wired connection

    I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 to my Airport Extreme using a wired ethernet connection. However, the Xbox 360 always says "MTU Failed". I've reserved an IP address for my Xbox 360, and tried opening ports 88 and 3074 for UDP and 3074 for TCP as Microsoft suggests, and I even tried using the IP assigned to the Xbox 360 as the NAT host, but it still doesn't work. I also tried connecting my Xbox 360 directly to the modem and it worked perfectly so I know it's not an issue with my ISP. Does anyone know what the problem might be? I tried searching, but it seems everyone's problems are when trying to connect the Xbox wirelessly and disappear when they connect the Xbox 360 directly to the Airport Extreme.
    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, i have it sorted
    MTU setting should be:
    Primary DNS server -> your router address (which could be or etc.. depend on your number, everybody is different, check underneath your router box)
    Secondary server: Your ip address, can be found in -> safari: type (don't give this away!!)
    now it should pass all the test.. enjoy guys

  • Connectivity issues with TC & Xbox 360

    Has anyone experienced any issues connecting Xbox 360 wireless with the TC? TC works okay with my Macbook Pro and my wife's ibook. I have called support and have tried almost everything I can think of...I was just wondering if anyone has been successful with this.

    The lack of Xbox connectivity is shaping up as a problem for many early adopters. Last December Xbox had a system update that, according to a list of new features, "added support to connect to Apple Extreme routers in 802.11a/n mode." However early adapters are choosing the 802.11a/n option in manual setup and the Xbox still does not recognize Time Capsule.
    An older workaround for Airport Extreme routers had users set the router for "b and g only" (not n, b and g). This too seems not to work for Time Capsule/Xbox. The only success an adapter has had is with an Ethernet cable plugged directly from router to Xbox -- not an option when the two are in separate rooms.
    Though I believe this is a problem with the Xbox, which rejects many n-class routers, I'm hoping someone here can suggest a workaround for wireless success.

  • Xbox 360 and WRT300N

    I have an xbox 360 and a wireless router (WRT300N).  My xbox 360 can connect to the router wirelessly and i get a great signal, but when i try to play online, for example, halo 3 slayer games,  my game turns all glitchy and disorted.  My character gliches through walls and my game freezes when I die.  I have tried with other routers at friend'shouses and the games work perfectly, so i know it is my router (WRT300N) and not my xbox 360. What can I do to fix this?

    1st, open up the router user interface. To do this, open up a web browser and on the address bar type the numbers (username just leave it blank, password as a default is admin).
    Then go to the Applications and Gaming Subtab. Input the following values:
    Application: XBOX
    Start: 3074
    End: 3074
    Protocol: Both
    IP Address:
    - Save Settings
    2nd, assign a MANUAL IP Address value to your XBOX:
    Subnet Mask:
    Then save the settings and go ahead , have fun.

    If your PowerBook has a dual-link DVI port, it will work with the 30-inch Cinema Display; this port can be found on a PowerBook with a clock speed of 1.67GHz. Neither the PowerBook nor the MacBook has upgradable graphics.
