I know some people have problems with their wireless routers and xbox live.
I just bought the Belkin wireless MIMO G router from bestbuys. I would like to let the ehmac community know, that it works with xbox live. I have "upnp" enabled, and "nat" enabled as well. I don't know anything about routers, but I've read up on several threads on the web and most say you need to enable "upnp" for xbox live to work.
This is the router I bought.
I have not tested out the wireless speeds on different floors of my house yet, but this router definetly works with macs.
Like I said before, "I don't know anything about routers". It took me all night to figure out how to get this wireless router working. 5 hours later, and success. I have Bell sympatico, and the instructions from Bell's website don't work. What I did was access the router address (192.168.2.1), and then you go into the connection type. You select "PPPOE", and from there you enter your sympatico user name and password.
I took a risk with this router I bought tonight, because I really needed it to be xbox live compatible, because I have a xbox 360, and my bro's got a regular xbox. We both connect to xbox live, so its important to me. I know this is important to some people on this forum as well.
I would like to keep this thread going for people thinking about getting a router. I know some routers are not mac compatible, or xbox live compatible. If everyone post what router they have and if its compatible with xbox live or not. This would make everyone's decision on buying a router easier, especially for us mac owners.
I'm only starting this thread because I know I had a hard time deciding on router, and I did a lot of googling, and it wasn't very helpful, nor was the search button on this site very helpful.
Post your router, and post if its xbox live compatible.
