Linksys WRT54GS Help with Xbox Live
Posted 12 June 2004 - 10:54 PM
I thought I was banned but I wasn't.
I tried connecting my xbox directly to the cable modem and it worked!
I narrowed it down to my router. I have a Linksys WRT54GS.
The way I got it to work was by setting a StaticIP on my xbox.
Your Static IP should be something that your router wouldnt assign to anything else.
In which case you SHOULD NOT use something like 192.168.1.101.
You SHOULD use something like what I did which is 192.168.1.5.
Then I went into the Linksys UI and went into the thing called DMZ.
I ENABLED the DMZ Host IP Address, and then I entered in my XBOX's static IP which is 192.168.1.5.
And that's it. It had nothing to do with my NAT Firewall or anything. No need to open up certain ports. DMZ basecally opens it up directly to the internet.

I will pin this and rename the topic title so it makes more sense.

first you must NOT HAVE DMZ enabled on your router. If you do...DISABLE IT!!!
second...U need to go to your xbox and set the configuration to manuel. Make your IP 192.168.1.5, the subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0 and the gateway should be 192.168.1.1. this is the only section that should be manual. the other section should be left to automatic. leave your xbox on so that your router can detect it.
now go to your router and enable DMZ and put in the ip address of 192.168.1.5.
Now go to your xbox and click connect.

Note that you will also have to copy down all the information from your XBOX in both sections and plug that into your avalaunch/evox dashboard. if you have your ava/evox dash connect without the DMZ, it will change your settings in your xbox live connection. this part only applys to thos that have a dual boot xbox.

|The DMZ method was a temporary fix to use before the UPNP problem was discovered. I have mine off dmz now and i turned of upnp. Hopefully linksys will issue a firmware update soon to fix this problem!|
Yea you are right even some of the routers not listed as live compatible will work on live if you put the xbox in the router's dmz zone. So it's always a good troubleshooting step.
