Re: Need firewall help

I assume you are on 2010 version please confirm.

Is it showing on My Home network?

Make sure the iP address is allowed in Web and email protection / Firewall / connections

Do a search for xbox360 and xbox 360 here and see what is said I seem to remember several posts.

Actualy 1 way is if the box is shown in the My Home network pictorial clicking on it will show the IP. You also can setup it there to be called a gaming comsole. My son's 3 xboxes are show in the network and work fine.

Also to setup a static Ip address on your xbox see
