XBOX on Rogers Rocket Hub

Updated on June 05, 2010

XBOX on the Rogers Rocket Hub

It seems that there is a growing number of gamers who are trying to use their XBOX's with the Rocket Hub. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to work out of the box (pardon the pun) for them.

It seems that the XBOX is complaining that the MTU for the router is too low, but there is no way to change that setting on the hub.

Boxing the Hub

Well, don't despair -- other intrepid XBOX gamers have gone before you and blazed a trail.

Part of the difficulty is the error message that the XBOX gives you doesn't lead to the solution. You cannot change the MTU setting on the hub at all. Thankfully, it turns out that this isn't really the problem

The Solution

On the Rogers Community Forums, a helpful user known only as Crono has figured it all out and provided some excellent instructions.

You'll need to make sure you have a Public IP address (it may cost you extra from Rogers) and then you can makes some settings on the XBOX and the Hub. You'll be up and running in no time.

You'll need to know how to get into the Rocket Hub's user interface (which I'm sure you know already) and make some changes. Remember, once you get things running you should make a backup of your settings so that you can restore them when you need to. It doesn't hurt to write things down as well.

So give it a try and let us know how it turns out!

      Hi ferrettamer

      The manual for the Rocket Hub is on the CD that came with the hub. If you've lost it you can probably find it at the Ericcson website. If you need help with that, let me know and I'll see if I can find a link.

      Ugh I seriously despise rogers so much. So now i have to pay what an exta 10 to fix something faulty. I am usually an incredibly levelheaded person but stuff like this drives me mad.

      The $10/month isn't to fix something that is faulty, it is to provide a service that most people don't need to access the internet. There are a fixed number of IP's available, so the Public IP's are more valuable.
