You must assign a static IP address on the Xbox 360 that it is outside of the Zoom X6v router's DHCP pool. Also, the Xbox 360 must be in a DMZ. This will prevent the firewall of the router from blocking connections to the Xbox 360.

- Select Network Settings and then Edit Settings.
- Select IP Settings. The Edit IP Settings screen opens.
