    Netgear (Modems/Gateways): Cannot connect range extender to Xbox 1
    Hi, Can anyone help.

    I have a n300 Wi-Fi range extender that is failing to connect to my son's Xbox 1 console. I have a sky black coloured router and entered the settings portal. The access control box is unchecked and the extender is shown in the available wireless stations.
    However, I cannot get the Xbox to connect to the range extender, any ideas would be welcome.

    :)

  2. Need Xbl data measurement?

    Due to our Modem having a small signal range, I am using a Wifi Extender for get my xbox to be connected as well as my other devices. We have a router but it's getting it configured that I give up on.

    The Extender I'm using is Netgear WN 2500RP and the router I haven't configured is Netgear WNR 1000.

  3. Wireless Repeaters/Range Extenders: DNS is not responding to Xbox server names

    Wireless Repeaters/Range Extenders: DNS is not responding to Xbox server names
    Hi,

    I am trying to connect my Xbox one to my netgear ex6000 plug in extender but it always comes up with dns is not responding to Xbox server names. My x box is in the bedroom furthest away from the virgin super hub 3 router to get a signal so I cannot use
    an Ethernet cable. I therefore purchased an netgear ex6000 plug in extender to expand the signal. The Xbox can see the ext 2g and ext 5g signals but it won't connect. I have tried hard reset on the plug in extender and obviously the Xbox. If anyone can shed
    some light on what the issue is, I would be grateful. Thx

    Craig

    Xbox One Wifi Issues

    Thanks, I looked it up. Similar in that in only affects the wireless of the Xbox, but not quite the same problem.

    At this point I don't know what else to do unfortunately since I have tried 2 separate Xbox's. Tried going to the Gears of War forums and asked if anyone else had the same problem but only 1 person has replied, and the said they don't experience the same
    thing.

    I have "temporarily" solved the problem by plugging in a range extender next to the Xbox. The range extender is connected wirelessly to my main router, and the Xbox is connected to the range extender with an ethernet cable. So the connection is still wireless,
    but the Xbox thinks it is wired. Obviously you would think by using a range extender my connection would be worse, but it solves the problem for now.

    What are best wifi range extender for gaming?

    It is very true that range extenders can cause some connection issues when it comes to gaming, I have the Netgear Orbi myself and I will be honest, I have not noticed much issues. Individual results will vary I am sure!

    Opening ports for Titanfall

    I'm using an Arris TG852G/CT router and a Netgear WN3000RP range extender. Also, when I use checkmyports.net, the message I get is "Port 80 on 10.0.0.100 is closed! - Connection timed out," even though it barely took any time to check.

    My download speed is absolute garbage!

    Just like any other internet server, they have to do load balancing or it will cause more issues. Last time Xbox Live was taken down by DDOS attacks, it took like 250Gbps of traffic to shut it down.

    The likely issue is the wireless setup, if your range extender is in the same room as the Xbox, then that is part of the issue, you need to realize that if your Xbox is getting 1 bar, and your range extender is right by the Xbox, then your range extender
    is getting poor signal as well, move the range extender closer to the router.

    And then we move onto wireless, is the router and range extender using the 5Ghz band? If either are using 2.4Ghz, then that'll reduce the bandwidth.
