Click on the Start menu and type cmd. When you see the cmd applications in Start menu panel, click it or just press enter.

7. A text box window will open. Type ipconfig and press enter.

There will be a lot of information, but the line you want to look for is "IPv4 Address."

  • As mentioned by the other two above, I have verified that the Xbox one’s LAN IP has been put into the DMZ.
    However, when attempting to connect via the WAN IP of the Router, I still get the message:
    “We couldn’t find an Xbox One Console with the IP Address provided.”

    Considering the Xbox One is now no longer behind a firewall and has all of the streaming options enabled, it makes no sense that it wouldn’t work. And yet, it doesn’t. I even pinged the IP to ensure a good connection, and it’s got a latency of less than 18ms, so there’s a communications breakdown somewhere, just can’t figure out where.

  • This doesnt work.

  • Can you verify that this works as I have followed these steps and the Xbox cannot be found on my routers public IP address
