I previously had my network where my modem was connected into my Linksys WRT54GS wireless router upstairs. Then, downstairs had a Linksys WAP54G wireless access point directly connected into the Xbox 360. Worked great for months, then suddenly my network lost all of its settings. I do not remember how I was able to get it all working before, but I am so lost now.

I get as far as the Xbox 360 connecting to the network, but then it will not connect to the internet. Here are the numbers I'm using.

Router IP :
Wireless access point IP:
Xbox 360 IP:

I think the problem is that I do not have correct DNS settings put in, but am unsure of where to get the proper DNS settings. I ran IPCONFIG/ALL; and see that my computers wireless is using:
Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:

But, those numbers do not seem to work when I put them into the Xbox 360. Any help here would be appreciated.

OK I know this post it old, but just in case you didnt figure it out or for anyone else that could use this info including me if I ever forget. Here it is.

I had the same setup. I'm going to assume you are running custom firmware. What you need to do is

Router connected to modem = Gateway
Router connected to 360 = Bridge

--Bridge Settings--

-----------------------Setup Tab---------------

Internet Connection Type : Static IP

Internet IP : 192.168.1.X(I have mine set to 87, i dont know y i just do)

Subnet Mask:

Gateway: the IP address of the Gateway

Static DNS1: Enter the DNS1 found on a computer connected to the Gateway

Static DNS2: The IP address of the Gateway

-Optional Settings(<not optional)
Host name: Enter the SSID of the Gateway
The rest leave default

-Network setup
Ip address: whatever you want THIS routers IP to be(I like to set mine up high to avoid any possible future IP conflicts)

Subnet Mask:


-----------------------------------------Wireless Network Tab----------------

Wireless Mode: Wireless Ethernet Bridge

Wirless Network Mode: Mixed

Wireless Network Name (SSID): The one from the Gateway

((Make sure if you have any wireless security enabled that they match up))

-------------------------------------------Security Tab---------------------------

Firewall Protection: Disabled

Leave the rest default

That should be it...If you have any problems or Q post it...and I will see what I can do.

you can always use google's DNS servers.
