Multiple Xboxes on live?

I have a Netgear DG 824M wireless adsl router / modem and have tried to run 2 xboxes on Live simultaneously without any luck. One of the connections gets dumped after 30 seconds to a minute. I do understand that connecting the two xboxes (with different live accounts / subscriptions) at the same time may not work due to the fact that I have only 1 external WAN IP address? Any help / advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Regards

Multiple Xboxes on live?

Hi Fraser,

You could request a block of 4 IP addresses (giving you two usable) if you are not able to do this with a single IP address - just request them through link:contact us.

Multiple Xboxes on live?

Hi
I will have a similar problem when my house mate registers his Xbox.
So if I request more IP addresses how will this effect my setup at home, we are using a US robotics ADSL router with 3 PC's and at the moment 1 Xbox but would like to make it 2. Once these extra IP addresses are active is it simply a case of plugging in the 2nd Xbox or do we have to configure the 2nd Xbox in some way?

Thanks and Regards

Hi there,

You would have to configure your router is such a way that the two XBox's had public IP addresses and the other machines had private IP addresses. I am not sure whether this would be possible using your router as I have no experience of using it.

You could try the ADSL forum or the manuafacturers website for help on setting it up.
