Multiple Console Support
*Because it may not consistently work without NAT issues*
*Bridge mode should only be used if you have a router to plug into the device* You must call your internet service provider for support and have them perform the Bridging from their end.
Lag and intermittent disconnections may occur, with no permanent fix known at this time. This may be related to the firmware/antenna/chipset.
High Firewall settings on this device can cause a number of errors on both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. We have seen "High packet loss" errors on the Xbox One and several potential errors on the 360 including "MTU", "Internet error", "Live connection". Should any of these errors occur we suggest disabling or setting the firewall to low.

For those who are experiencing disconnects from Xbox Live on this particular gateway it is because your security setting is set to WPA or WPA-2. Change that to WEP 64 or 128 and restart your gateway.
This has worked for me and I'm confident that it will work for you as well. If this works then you shouldn't have any more disconnects. Also turn on UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) under Advanced Settings to ensure that your NAT remains open as well. Let me know if this works, if not, try the other methods of solving your intermittent disconnects from Xbox Live posted on the Xbox website.
you can set your encryption algorithm to WEP if you want to make it easier to hack your network. to be honest its just not worth the security risk when you can just get a different device that isn't a complete piece of ***.
Since, for the life of me, I can't find a way to start a new thread I'm gonna see if I can get my issue on the table here.
I have had my xBox 360 Pro set up and working for several years wirelessly connected to a Linksys router connected to DSL. It has always worked flawlessly.
Two weeks ago I moved into a new apartment that provides access to Comcast high-speed cable internet over this router - Technicolor-TC8305C.
After going through network setup it connected to the router and its wireless network. However, it won't connect to the internet. I've tried resetting it to clear out cache, deleting the configuration, reconfiguring, etc etc without anything changing -- connects to wifi but not the internet. When I ran the network test it said something about my ISP not recognizing the DNS name.
Though I don't remember doing it on the Linksys, from reading this thread it appears that I should set up Port Forwarding, and possibly a static IP address, on this router.
Is that correct?
I am not guaranteeing that port forwarding would work, but if you are willing to try it, use port 3074. YouTube has videos that will help you in using port forward if you do need help. The default setting for all Technicolor TC8305C gateways for IP's is the Dynamic IP, and that means that every time a client connects to your gateway, their IP changes, and Xbox makes the most use of that. Setting up a Static IP could potentially fix your Xbox's inability to connect to the internet. To do this: go to System Settings, Network, Configure Network, then choose Manual. Again, YouTube has videos that can help you do these things. I've tried everything on the list of possible fixes, even the one that I've posted, but no success. Comcast has noticed the problem, but has not addressed it just yet. The only plausible explanation would be that the recent firmware update to the TC8305C has "fixed" something that was never broken.
