Would like a 3rd ip to resolve nat issues when xboxes play at the same time,same game is it possible and how much does it cost?
Because it comes up very infequently, needing more than 2 IPs... I believe the charge is $9.95 for the 3rd.
I don't know your setup, the issue would be how are you going to hook them up? How many Xbox consoles do you have? Multiple Xbox machines, UPnP should help a lot too.
There shouldn't be a reason for a third address. There's commonly multiple XBox's playing the same game online together in my home.
As kevinds pointed out, it is $9.95/m per additional IP after the first 2, however, I don't suspect that is the real issue here.
Sounds like you are using a router if multiple people are connected at once.
Is this a Shaw Modem-Router combo or is it a Third Party Router? (If Third Party, what brand?)
Yeah, I agree. This setup should work with any router (Shaw's or 3rd party)...
Unless, it's improper configuration....or maybe trying to use two Xbox 360's
using the same Xbox Live account for online play?
it is not router configuration but i am using an amped wireless dual band model 20000G, there are 5 household members using the internet with at least 3 devices connected each. we can connect both xboxes but as soon as there is more then 4 devices online we get a moderate or strict nat in the game which sucks as you cant talk to or join all people.
we have tried port forwarding and the dmz which you can only use for one device. we now have my xbox connected to the 2nd ip on the modem directlyand i would like to do the same with the 2nd xbox and haev the router for the rest of the household on the 1st ip
That sounds more like a NAT issue in the Amped router, check for a software update for it.
Port-Forwarding and DMZ won't really work, UPnP should though. So will haveing a 3rd IP, and connecting your Xboxs to them. Be aware, you won't be able to use the media-sharing/medial player function on the 360's if you do this.
Just checking in to see if you got the information you were looking for here. We provide up to 2 IPs included with your internet account, additional IPs can be added for $9.95/month.
However, as has already been mentioned here, adding a third IP is most likely not necessary. Additional IPs are usually needed only in rare circumstances where you may be using a network hub or switch rather than a router. This is because routers are able to assign as many internal IPs as necessary for the devices in your home to connect, even if you're using, say, 20 computers plus 5 gaming consoles! However, if you think that a third IP is what you need and you want to add one, please let me know so that I can help with that.
