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 www.linksys.com/download 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 192.168.1.1 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 WRT54GS no one can fix this. Please help if you can?

    I'm totally out of ideas here and would appreciate it if someone could help me?  We have 2 XBox 360's both with the Microsoft XBox wireless adapters.  My son has had his since they first came out whatever year that was.  My youngest daughter got hers last October.  Both XBox's connect to XBox LIVE without a problem via a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router.  The problem we can't solve is - my oldest daughter and son-in-law live about a mile from us and they have an XBox 360. When we try to connect to their XBox (or anyone else that's local) to play against her and her husband, it won't connect and gives us a "Disconnected" prompt every time. They have no problem connecting to other XBox's locally but we, for some reason, can't.  I can connect our XBox directly into our cable modem bypassing the Linksys and it connects to them, so it isn't the cable modem.  I've changed settings on the router, internet, XBox with no luck.  I've updated the firmware.  I've read thru posts on the internet for weeks and now my brain is mush.  Is this fixable or do I need to buy a new wireless router?  Also, I don't know if this has anything to do with anything but we have 3 PC's and 3 DVR's also connected to the internet but are hard wired.  My kids and grandkids have DSi's, a Playststion3, and a Wii and those all connect via wireless and work great.  XBox has this WRT54GS listed as compatable.  I'm stumped.  I know there's some really sharp folks out there somewhere.......please help if you can?  Thanks for any help you could offer!

    Have you opened the ports on the router....?
    If not then,you need to open ports 53-3074 on the router..Read this link. Also,under the security tab on the router,uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...

  • Xbox 360 and WRT54G v8 SBC Ameritech

    I have done extensive searching on this forum and many others to no avail. I cannot get my xbox 360 to find an IP address. I have the router setup and can get internet from all of my PC's and Mac's through it. I am wondering if the problem is the modem from SBC - it is an Efficient Speedstream 5260 and if I hook the Xbox 360 directly to it with the PPoE settings typed in, it still will not find an IP. Thought that going through the router might solve that. Weirdest thing is the first couple tests I did through the Xbox dashboard passed every test, but still could not connect to Live, and now it will not go farther than the failed IP test. Problem is that where I am I cannot upgrade my modem because I cannot risk all the problems I had getting this 5260 to work. By day it is my work internet, and I can't afford to be down even for a day. So I am hoping there is a fix for the equipment I have.

    Hi,
    Try assigning a static IP address on XBOX as following:
    IP:192.168.1.10
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    gateway:192.168.1.1
    Hope it works for you

  • Xbox 360 with wrt54gs V2 connection problems

    Been trying to set this up for a wired connection and getting nowhere. Firmware version is 4.71.1. Reason I have the higher firmware is for the WPA security which I don't think the xbox supported firmware version provides. BTW, have four computers, two wired, two wireless, connecting through the router. If I connect the xbox directly to the DSL modem I get connected and sometimes (and I mean sometimes) get an IP but always fail on the DNS. ISP is verizon. Verizon says to call Xbox, Xbox gave up after their flow charts ran out of options. If I hook the cable through the router I get no connection and the connection light on the router blinks on and off very slowly. I've tried every setting in the book and cant get a connection. My thought is by going through the router the connections for the xbox can be negotiated by the router instead of the ISP, plus other systems can also connect. Any thoughts on what could be preventing the connection? Would a new router solve the problem? It is four or five years old, has never been a problem, but could it possibly be too old for an xbox 360? Any suggestions on a model that would work in this configuration? Thanks

    Lowered the MTU to 1498 and didn't make a difference, at least not yet. What I have noticed on the router is the connection light for the xbox is in a very slow, cyclical on / off rotation. Where all of the other lights for connected systems are rapidly moving this one is not.

  • Xbox 360 and WRT54GS Ver. 5

    Hello,
    I have the Router mentioned in the title and I have set up port forwarding for 88, 3074, 2074 in both UDP/TCP protocol. I have disabled UPnP and also done Port triggering for the aforementioned ports. I have set MTU to 1365 and I have also unchecked Block Anonymous Internet Requests. Yet I still get "Moderate" NAT settings from the "Test Xbox Live" test from the Xbox 360 dashboard. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
    P.s. Also I have set a Static IP and all the necessary stuff on my 360.
    Thanks, Kenter

    Alright so I connected my 360 to the modem, everything passed and NAT was open. I then port forwarded and not port triggered, reduced the MTU to 1300 to no avail the NAT was still moderate. I then had it reset to factory defaults and left DHCP on put my 360 to Auto. Then looked on on xbox.com for the ports I have to forward it also mentions 53 UDP,3330 UDP. I then entered those into my router and also set 88 UDP, 3074 Both, 2074 Both. Then I forwarded those to my 360 through its Auto IP. Did all that and "Open" but could not connect to anybody or join any game. I then turned off UpNP and now it says "Open" and I can join any game and connect to anyone. The only thing I don't get is DHCP what does and what it means? Do I have to forward the ports to a new IP every day?
    P.s. MTU is set to auto. Also sorry for any spelling errors I am getting tired.

  • XBOX 360 AND WRT54G PROBLEMS

    Hi, for some reason when i go online on the xbox360, i can only connect to a few of my friends. I get a mesage that says that my NAT is to moderate and I cannot join them at all. Can some one please tell me how do I change the whole NAT thing to OPEN and what would happen if I was to change it to open?

    Yes the stepwise setting on router are ....
    Open routers set up page using http://192.168.1.1 ..... you wil see username & password leave username blank & in password use admin ....
    1)  Under set up tab.... look for MTU .... by default it is under "auto" ....choose manual .... change the size to 1365 ....
    Click save settings ....
    2)   Click security tab .... uncheck Block Wan Anonymous Wan request .... click save settings ....
    3)   Click "Apllications & gaming tab" .... under Apllication name use any name .... under start  end port use numbers 88.... use Ip address assigned to X-BOX .... check enable ....
    4)   Under second row .....use any other Application name ..... under start & end port use 3074 .... use static Ip of the X-BOX ....check enable ....
    Click save settings ....
    Configure the X-BOX using the wireless settings on the router ....
    Also use the static Ip ...subnet mask ...default gateway & DNS numbers on the X-BOX .......
    Check the connection.....may be it work.....

  • Xbox 360 and WRT54G

    I think I've reached a solution to the issues that I've had w/my Xbox network settings and the console not finding an IP address via the WRT54G v.6. After hours and hours of trying all the suggestions that I've read on this forum I've decided to take the SOB back to the store and exchange it for another brand of wireless router. I think this router and its software are poor and is not complimented by the ability of the average layperson. Anyway, if any of you other poor users are doing a search on Xbox then I hope you read this first before you waste the amount of time I have.
    Good Luck.

    I didnt hve an issue with my WRT54G and my sons XBox.  Entered the security key in the xbox, clicked on connect and away he went.  But the difference might be is that I have a vesion 4.  Has been running for about 4 months now ever since I recieved the wireless xbox adapter.

  • 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 games.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.

  • Xbox 360 and Linksys E3000

    Hello,
    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:- http://www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/faqs/114-troubleshooting-and-improving-wireless
    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.

  • 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 10.0.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 etc.. depend on your number, everybody is different, check underneath your router box)
    Secondary server: Your ip address, can be found in -> safari: type www.whatsmyip.org (don't give this away!!)
    now it should pass all the test.. enjoy guys

  • Xbox 360 and WRT300N

    Hi,
    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 192.168.1.1 (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: 192.168.1.5
    - Save Settings
    2nd, assign a MANUAL IP Address value to your XBOX:
    IP: 192.168.1.5
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Gateway: 192.168.1.1
    Then save the settings and go ahead , have fun.

  • Xbox 360 and nas storage for streaming media

    Hi there,
    I have an xbox 360 and watch movies on it through my network that are stored on my home PC, this means that I have to have my home PC on whenever I want to watch a movie. What I would like to do is have a NAS storage device that I can store all my movies on that is on the same notwork so that I can then watch the movies on my xbox without the need for the PC being on. Obviously I would want the NAS to be seen by the computer's I have on my network also.
    I way thinking about getting this item Western Digital - My Book Live 1TB External Home Network Drive - Black but am not sure if the xbox will see it? or is there a better solution for around the same price which is expandable?
    Thanks.

    You'd have to get a real home or business NAS product to stream to the 360 and those are not in the same price range as the product you are looking at.

  • 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

  • Xbox 360 and apple airport ip address HELP PLEASE!

    hey i just got an xbox 360 and i got the wireless internet adapter than microsoft makes to pick up my wireless internet. I have an ADSL ethernet modem that is plugged into my Airport, which is streaming in my house. So on my xbox i got the test for the wireless connection to work. then the test for the IP address failed. I have looked online to find the IP address, but i dont know which one i need (of the computer? the airport? the modem box?) and the subnet mask, and gateway, and the DNS numbers. can anyone help please? i have mac os X if that helps

    i think that's what i mean. sorry im so confusing. i have a mac laptop, which is connected to my wireless network at home, which is an apple airport (you know the little white box that plugs into the electrical outlet) which is also plugged into an ADSL ethernet modem box from US Robotics (which is my cable internet). so then i will be able to find the IP of the airport where? network settings? and last thing, if that is the gateway for the xbox, what is the subnet mask, and the actual ip address of the xbox?
    also, if this helps, when i look at Network, under System preferences, Airport is the network, and under TCP/IP it says that the IP Address is 10.0.1.2, the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, and the Router is 10.0.1.1
