best settings for xbox live?

Hello!

I just bought a WRG54T2. Have upgraded the firmware to 1.0.03. I am randomly getting dropped from Xbox Live. Does anyone know the best settings for it? My Xbox 360 connection is wireless. Sometimes I can play for an hour, others 15 minutes. I mainly just need to know if there's any special settings I need to enable / disable, etc.

 

Thank you!

Here are some settings which you can set on your Router as well as on your XBOX, i think this might solve your problem.

 

Open an Internet Explorer browser page on your wired computer(desktop).In the address bar type - 192.168.1.1 and press Enter...Leave Username blank & in Password use admin in lower case...

Click on "Applications and Gaming" tab and then click on "Port Range Forwarding" subtab...

1) On the first line in Application box type in ABC, in the start box type in 53 and End box type in 53, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...

2) On the second line in Application box type in PQR, in the start box type in 88 and End box type in 88, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box...

3) On the third line in Application box type in XYZ, in the start box type in 3074 and End box type in 3074, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box and click on Save Settings...

4) Once you return to the set up page click on the Security tab and uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...

5) Click on set-up and change the MTU Size to 1452 and click Save Settings...

6) Goto the XBox Network Settings and IP Address Settings and select manual IP Settings and assign the following on your Xbox IP Address :- 192.168.1.20, Subnet Mask :- 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway :- 192.168.1.1...

7) Also assign the DNS Addresses on the Xbox Primary dns :- 4.2.2.2...Secondary dns :- 192.168.1.1

I'm not having a problem connecting. I'm having a problem staying connected. I will try this. Hopefully it'll give me a more stable connection.

 

Thank you!

Re: best settings for xbox live?

Any other suggestions? I'm still getting random disconnects. My previous router was a D-Link 614. It never had this problem. I haven't noticed the connection on my 2 PC's dropping that are also connected. They are wired though. The XBox is the only one that is wireless and I'd like to keep it that way since it's in another room.
