NB16WV-03 - XBox Setup Guide

XBox Setup

There are two ways of allowing your XBox to communicate with the internet. One is through port forwarding and the other is through the DMZ feature. Port forwarding will enable specified ports on the router to get access to your XBox to communicate with the internet as if they were directly connected by allowing access through. Setting your XBox as a DMZ host opens all the ports on the router to allow access to a designated device.

Before you configure the router, you will need to set a static IP address on your XBox. Follow the instructions at the link below to set a static IP address on your XBox:

http://portforward.com/networking/static-ip-xbox-one/

You can use an IP address like 192.168.20.254 for example.

You can only forward a port to one location (IP address).

In some cases, this may cause issues when multiple LAN devices (computers, game consoles, or VOIP ATAs) attempt to use online gaming as same time or make multiple VOIP service connections.

In these cases, you would need to use an alternate port for any subsequent connections after the first device.

Please consult your VOIP provider or game manufacturer for assistance with this.
