I am currently having a problems setting up my friends xbox wirelessly. I was able to connect his playstation 3 wirelessly, and both his playstation 3 and xbox are able to get online when plugged directly to his router. But the xbox still will not work wirelessly.

The main computer is an XP OS, with comcast motorola sb5120 modem connected to a linksys wrt54g. This is the router that the straight ethernet connection worked with.

He currently has 4different routers available that I am trying to hook to the xbox for the wireless connection. A westell 327w , westell 2200, verizon gt 704wg, and a westell 6100. Im pretty sure these are all dls modems and to the best of my knowledge this is what is causing them not to connect wireless ly to the linksys wrt54g.

With any of those routers hooked to the xbox the "test xbox live connection" connects to the network but then fails at the internet. So the modem is picking up the computers ip address subnet mask and gateway. The DNS that it picks up automaticly is not the one listed on the computer and when I manually enter the dns setting in I get the same failure.

So im basically asking, will I be able to use one of these routers in connection with my xbox? Is there anything I can do to make a dsl modem work with my Linksys srt54g? If so how?

Will simply buying a router from the store that says its works for cable do the trick or is my problem somewhere else?

Anyother tips are much appriciated

Thank You
