Rev B and Xbox Live
« on: November 16, 2008, 12:03:12 PM »

I have a strong wireless connection from the Xbox 360 to the router. When I try to connect to Xbox Live, the Xbox says that my DNS server couldn't be reached. The router has MAC filtering turned on and I have the Xbox Wireless Adapter in allowed in the filter.

I'm not really sure what else I can do. The router works great 99 percent of the time. I also have the latest released firmware on the router.

Try adding the MAC of the console as well.

As far as I can see, the wired port and wireless adapter have two separate MAC addresses. Do you mean add the wired address or is there another address out there?

I got it to work. It was the wireless MAC address causing the problem, oddly enough. I removed it from the router and now Xbox Live works perfectly.

There's another symptom. The router or maybe the modem won't allow the Xbox to connect Xbox Live if the connection isn't allready established.

I looked at my logs and this is what happens when the Xbox tries to connect after the there hasn't been any internet activity in over 8 hours:

What's causing this?

MistaKennedy,

Try reserving the IP address of the XBOX in the DHCP reservation list of the DIR-615. Also try to disable SPI and set Endpoint independent for both UDP and TCP endpoint filtering.

I think I understand what you are saying but can you explain what SPI does.
