Security enabled on router AND XBOX Live working?!

  WhenHeavenTouchesEarth 13:03 18 Sep 2005

Anyone know whether I can do this?

I have a Netgear DG834GT Modem/Router, and can access Live without probs is security is disabled on the router.

I really would like to have security enabled permenantly, so if anyone knows about this I'd be so grateful to hear from you!

But which bit am I supposed to be looking at?

Titled "Secure" at bottom of page.

I've read that and I'm still not sure what I'm meant to be getting from it. Apologies for this, but I need things explaining.

Any ideas what need to be doing here?

Not resolved, but looks like it's not someone for the PCAdvisers :)

I'm certainly no expert in this but what I can suggest you try is to enable DMZ to the IP address that is assigned to your XBox.

When your Xbox is connected and running a network connection, your router should give you a list of all the connected clients and also their IP addresses (192.168.x.x).

DMZ will likely be under the security section of the configuration page. You should be able to assign one local IP address (your XBox) to use one WAN IP (your internet connection) thorugh a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone,ie. unrestricted access).

Hope that does the job for you.
