I swear to god, I’m ready for chucking this P.O.S Superhub out the window. I have two Xbox’s both of which are sharing connections from the laptops in the house, because we’re not prepared to pay 60 bucks for a damn wireless adapter. Problem is, anytime me or my brother get on live together, only one of us can get “moderate” NAT settings, and the other one gets “strict”. I’ve tried port forwarding, I can’t seem to set-up the static IP in order to see if it would solve any problems. This router/modem is sooooooooooooo s**t (excuse my french), I’m so angry right now. I just want to play on live and I can’t. I don’t know if I have to setup a static IP for my laptop and then use that static IP from the laptop on the Xbox so that it acts as a one way system kind of thing. Someone please just help me here.
That’s the only downside of the Virgin superhub, you can’t change it because it’s a fibre optic line. I haven’t seen anything that supports the weird connector at the back of the router. Best way I can describe it is: Remember the only single Sky TV aerials?
Yes I know what a cable router is…but I didn’t mean that… I meant, connect the Xbox to one of those with an ethernet cable, and use it in client access point mode… where it talks to your router wirelessly.
Cheaper than the M$ USB wireless dongle thingamabob, and doesn’t use up one of the Xbox’s USB ports
Though I can’t say from experience how well the above linked Buffalo works in this configuration (so there’s no guarantee), my Belkin works perfectly… if you read the comments for the Buffalo, it looks like it worked for someone else with an Xbox.
Or if you’re feeling particularly rich, get a new Xbox360, the new ones have built in wireless
BTW, I don’t think you can have static IP’s on the ICS client side (Xbox) when using ICS from the laptops (at least you couldn’t in WindowsXP).
And if the Xbox’s (as ICS clients) can’t have static IP’s, port forwarding is useless, because the ports would need to be forwarded to the Xbox’s IP’s which would keep changing.
Though it must be said, it’s been years since I’ve messed with ICS so I could be wrong.
Well it has the option of being static, and I’ve seen some people play on them as well. As far feeling rich, no I will never buy one of those new “slimline” Xbox’s. I hate the touch buttons, hate the glossy look and I’ve had my old one since release day and never once had a problem with it. I love my elite. <3
