xbox360 , netgear DG834Gv5 and zone alarm

Folks for 12 months I have been trying to get these three to work together but to no avail. To be honest it is driving me mad :eek::eek:

I am being serous when I say I have taken days off work (holiday) and I am getting nowhere. Tried configuring router...port opening /enabling etc....but the damned PC wont see the xbox and vice versa....Bloomin xbox360 sees the internet and can connect with no issues :D and vice versa with PC ...arrggghhhhhh Moreoveor my router can see my xbox360 (ip address is showing) :thumbsup:

I think its zone alarms ! I have enable ports on it and IP address etc but to no avail !!!!

Big question ....can some kind hearted forumite based in Glasgow please help !!!?!?!?!! :thumbsup:

When you say you have opened a port, Do you mean on your firewall? When you get the error message there are hints & Tips and it tells you which ports to open. Have you tried that, Opening a port on your firewall?

It'll most likely be your firewall that is stopping this. I had to do that but i use MacAfee Security Suite.

yes tried that - follow MS instructions to the tee.....nothing....my xbox can access the internet and so cna my pc but they cannot see each other...


when I open my router it clealry sees my xbox360 (as the ip address shows) but when I go to the CMD line in dos and out in ipconfig /all - I only see my router IP and my PC :thumbsdow
 
What level of security are you running with zonealarms ? I had major issues with zonealarms due to level of security.

Anyway disable zonealarms (right click exit) and then try it. If your 360 sees your computer start streaming a song and then enable zonealarms again.

That should kick it to ask you do you want to enable this service.
