WN2000RPT and Xbox live


I recently purchased a Netgear Universal WiFi Range extender. I set it up and it seems to work fine for connecting to the internet. But, I am unable to connect to xbox live through the wireless connection produced from this extender. I know the problem is with the extender because the weak internet connection from my Motorola router can connect to xbox live fine.

When I diagnose the internet connection on my xbox, it says there is a DNS error occurring.

What can I do?

I would try to do a hard reset on both the router and the extender.

There should be a little pin hole on your router and on your extender you can stick a toothpick in. Put it in each for 10 secs and see if that helps.

I'm having the same problem, my son's XBox cannot connect to XBox Live when hardwired to the range extender. I can, however, connect to the net wirelessly via the extender using a PC, idevice, and Kindle. If, however, I try to use an ethernet cable, and a PC, I end up with a password prompt and the admin page of the extender. I suspect that the XBox is receiving the same request.

I ended up buying an XBox wireless adapter, (which took some doing as none of the stores here in Norway carry accessories for earlier XBox 360 models without built-in wifi).
