Manually Configuring Your Xbox Networking Setting to get a Static IP

Published Thursday, March 11, 2010 2:51 PM

I made a video not too long ago on how to fix connection problems in Xbox Live. You forwarded ports to your Xbox so the you could obtain a open NAT type and be able to play with anyone. This works very well but your Xbox needs to have the same IP address for this to work. The best way is to reserve the IP in the router and I showed you how to do that in the video link above. The other way to do this is to manually configure your Xbox with an IP address so the router doesn't change it. This what I show you how to do in this video.

After doing a little research I discovered that it's important to give your xbox an IP outside of the DHCP Range, which is usually 100-149 on consumer routers, but could be different for your router. The screen shot above shows you what it looks like on the main Linksys setup page. If you give it a number outside this range the router will not give out your IP to any other device. So you would want  something like or and so on.
