Ok, b4 u all start callin me a noob, i would like to say that my ip and other
info is set up correctly to the best of my knowledge.
i have a linksys router and that is most likely my prob. i dont think it
should effect it but it may.
Aug 29 2003, 03:21 AM
if you done all correct, it will work, you refuse to be helped within your post, so i wont give an advice until you clearly say you dont know why it doesn't work
Aug 29 2003, 03:24 AM
fine i dont know.
im pretty sure tho to the best of my knowledge, that ip settings are set right, but since im not perfect they could be wrong.
Aug 29 2003, 03:26 AM
it's kinda strange, i haven't seen his xml but he can get the newsfeed and shit and ftp to outside sources i guess lol
Aug 29 2003, 03:28 AM

North South Rulez!
Aug 29 2003, 03:39 AM
ouch i just tested yer xml zerowiz and it had my box nearly raped
it was bent over, i prevented the sexual assault from happening
i loaded my recov disc, thank god for dvd drive check
anyways i'll just send ya mine to edit to yer liking cuz im lazy and not feeling like i wanna screw wtih an xml with all the comments in it and shit cuz it gets in my way
Aug 29 2003, 03:43 AM
nm i just try and walk ya thru steps to try and fix
Aug 29 2003, 03:48 AM
thx for the try but irc still wont connect
Aug 29 2003, 03:50 AM
my mind is just boggled. now i think it is my dns. but dont know what to do. anyone know?
Aug 29 2003, 03:50 AM
well it may be the domain name servers
i use ICS so my pc does most of the work and sends it back to my box
EDIT: then again, when u used gentoox u didnt have to set up domain name servers so the router may do it for you
i dont have a router so i have no damn idea how much of the work it does for ya
Aug 29 2003, 03:58 AM
well thanks for the help rob, but if anyone has any ideas dont hesitate to post here or pm me. thx.
Aug 29 2003, 04:08 AM
uhhh contact isp to get the dns crap
dunno if there is any other way to obtain em
Aug 29 2003, 04:12 AM
ok, i will but if anyone has an easier way post here not just for my use, but for anyone who has same probs.
Aug 29 2003, 05:24 AM
there is no easier way unless someone else from comcast in yer area has the domain name servers noted somewhere and they could just share it with you lol
Aug 29 2003, 08:46 AM
on ur (windows based) pc, in a dos window, type 'ipconfig'
it should come with a result like
|- Scheda Ethernet Connessione alla rete locale (LAN):|
Suffisso DNS specifico connessione: 18.104.22.168
Indirizzo IP. . . . . . . . . . . : 22.214.171.124
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Gateway predefinito . . . . . . . : 126.96.36.199
(i'm italian, u see) even if it's configured for auto-get dns and ips
the dns thing is the ip u must type in the xml from the xbox
Aug 29 2003, 11:18 AM
get the DNS servers
set your gateway IP to the router and all the other info you have
already, so you should be fine.
Aug 29 2003, 04:28 PM
didn't know dns that easy to get
i figured it could be done without contacting isp but not that easy hehe
Aug 29 2003, 04:56 PM
did you success with the irc stuff then now?
Aug 29 2003, 06:15 PM
work as well.
Aug 29 2003, 06:17 PM
but no still doesnt work, but idont know how to set gateway to router as i have no clue what routers gateway is.
Sep 2 2003, 08:58 PM
does anyone have an idea of what the problem is?
if you want u can email me, or just pm me.
Sep 2 2003, 10:36 PM
If you're using a Linksys Router, yer gateway is probably 192.168.1.1 - it definately is if you're using BEFSR41 or similar - hth
If you're still stuck then PM me :)
Sep 5 2003, 08:43 AM
i know my gateway but thx for trying. i just cant figure anything out. i am behind a linksys router.
Sep 5 2003, 08:44 AM
need to know anything else just tell me.
Sep 5 2003, 09:26 PM
you also need to setup your primary and secondary dns' (incase you aint already?)
also I used a static ip on me xbox opposed to dhcp and I didnt run my xbox DMZ thru my router
i did forward port 119 tho incase i had any problems, not sure if this made a difference tho
Sep 5 2003, 10:15 PM
thx ill try that
Sep 11 2003, 04:37 PM
has anyone got it to work with a xbox connected to pc via cat5 which is connected via usb cable modem using static ip?
Sep 11 2003, 09:44 PM
you mean xbox > pc via crossover cable yeh?
Sep 11 2003, 09:47 PM
yeah but its ok i sorted it know irc works but update doesn't but i suppose thtas because the avalaunch site doesn't
Sep 11 2003, 09:49 PM
