Need help with DMZ setup

Post by PootyPoo22 on Tue Apr 05, 2011 1:41 pm

First off, let me say that I'm an idiot with computers. I don't know what a DMZ is, I just know it's something I need to do to connect to people on XBL. I don't know how to access my router, because I'm a n00b. I have a Linksys WRT120N Router. Anyone who helps me with this is going to have to take baby steps, just as Wiggles. Any help is appreciated

well first off its ok !!!
here we go
step [note you need to be on a pc that is hard wired into your router]
1. open up your web browser (firefox or Explore what ever you use)
2. type 192.168.1.1 into your web bar (were you normally type like www.youtube.com)
2. it will ask for a user name and password since its your first time
your user name leave it blank and your pass word : Admin

3. now when your in there should be a tab that says something like this
(Applications & Gaming) click on that ,
4. now there should be a little sub tab look for one that says DMZ and click it

5. under the Dmz tab do as fallowed and after click saved
~ click Enabled
~ under source IP Address click Any
~ Under destination click IP address
(should read something like this 192.168.1.[put the last 3 numbers of your xbox IP adress here ]

6. click save and that will do it


--------------------------
if you dont know have to Manuel give your Xbox an IP let me know and i can give you the steps

Username: admin
password: usually the top one, could be the others
admin
password
(blank - don't type anything)

Yeah that's what a lot of ISP's program the password as. Default settings are what I listed. If your ISP set it up it'll probably be easiest to call their tech support.

DMZ - Demilitarized Zone....

By putting an IP in the DMZ, makes that device totally exposed to outside attack/intrusion and not protected by the router. This is not an issue when adding your Xbox 360 there since I have not heard/seen ppl looking to hack your Xbox and jack your save files lol
