Re: Xbox 360 hard wired to router actiontech m1424wr.

On the xbox you will want to get into the xbox settings, then find the network settings. Then change from auto, to manual. 

 

then you will want you IP something like. This is how it should look if your router is 192.168.1.1.

IP: 192.168.1.205

Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DNS: 192.168.1.1

Re: Xbox 360 hard wired to router actiontech m1424wr.

There is Built in configuration on the Actiontech router for xbox 360

-->Click on firewall Settings
-->port forwarding
-->Click "Add"
-->Under the "Add Port Forwarding Rule"
-->Protocol Drop box change the "Specify Protocol" to "Show All"
-->You will then have to scroll toward the bottom of the list to find xbox360
 
  Example
  xbox360 TCP Any -> 2047

  Specify the ip address on the top right hand side and apply

Hope this works..

Port forwarding is not needed for the Xbox. The only thing that is needed for is to open up NAT, and that's helps control how open your xbox is for match making in game.

Re: Xbox 360 hard wired to router actiontech m1424wr.

You seem to have 2 different solutions for your issue,

 

As for weather or not Port forwarding is needed or not,

 

Due to the high number of XBox 360 issues that arised, VZ worked with Actiontech to get this solution prebuilt into the config, this also holds true for webcams.. 

 

So you are more the welcome to Try either Solutions,  The one I have provided has been obtained straight from Actiontech Support and has worked for my customers and my home.
