Angry Trouble using XBox Live and internet at the same time.

I want to play XBox Live while my wife plays WoW but only one can access the net at the same time. I bought a LinkSys N wireless router (for 100 bucks!!!) if that helps any. I was told something about adding a static ip address to the router to allow both XBox and PC to connect simultaneously but I am retarded when it comes to PC's. Someone please help me!

You need to access the router with the PC. Type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of your browser. That will allow you access to the router. Admin password may be blank. From there, you're on your own.

The Routerforums is a woodworking website. You'll have to go somewhere else for more help.

Enjoy

You may need to access your router firmware configuration by visiting the address recommended by AxlMyk. I believe the address is 192.168.1.0 (by default) related information will be listed in your manual for the router.

I'm not sure why it's only permitting one to be used at a time. It may be an issue with ports, in which case if it is a port issue, I would recommend you visit: http://portforward.com/ which will provide you with a step-by-step configuration settings to resolve the problem.

I'm not really being much of a help, my knowledge with home networking is very limited, I would recommend you visit: http://www.google.ca/search?q=networking+forum and browse through the search results for the best website to request information. Ask Mike said we're a woodworking community and while we do have some IT knowledgeable users you would be better off seeking assistance from a more networking focused community.

Good luck

HI Michael

I'm not sure who you are using for your IP,, but give them a call and tell them what you want to do..setting up a small home network should do the trick..

You can buy a static ip address but they are not cheap and you should not need one if you are just using two computers/devices on line at the same time.. just as a side note, I can use 10 computers on line at one time..the OS will setup a ip address for each one.

Note*** if you are using win98se you will need software like I-Share to do the job.


The norm, it comes down to using the right hardware for your hookup.
call your IP = ( internet service company )

Do you think Michael mistook Router Forum for a Modem Router forum? As always, good answers from the members. He may not have to setup a home network, if the Xbox 360 works like the playstation3, all he has to do is run setup from xbox and it will ask for his wireless name and password.

HI Barry99

True, but if only has one phone the router modem must take over..to let the Xbox use the phone line at the same time.

Unless he has a true wireless hook up...( satellite wireless )

Correct. Once his xbox searches and finds the router, the router assigns a MAC number to the xbox different from the computer. Another important note, make sure to use secured connection.
