There are various reasons why you might need to know the IP address for your Xbox One. In this guide, we'll tell you how to find it, as well as how to set a static IP address for Xbox One and why you might want to do that.

How to Find an Xbox One IP Address

Finding the IP address of an Xbox One is a straightforward process. You'll need to have access to the console, turn it on, and then make sure it's connected to your network.

If you're sure the Xbox One is connected to your network, you can find its IP address by following these steps:

  1. Open System > Settings.

  2. Select Network > Network settings.

  3. Select Advanced settings.

On this screen, you will see the current IP address of your Xbox One on the right. You will also see the port it is currently using and other information that may be useful for diagnostic purposes if voice chat or multiplayer aren't working correctly.

Why Would an Xbox One Need a Static IP?

Depending on how you set up your network, you may find that your Xbox One is assigned a different IP address every time it connects to the network. It's usually not a problem, but there are situations where it can help have a static IP that never changes.

The main reason to assign a static IP is to allow you to make advanced changes to your network settings that will apply only to the Xbox One.

For instance, you may be able to access the advanced settings in your router to change the network address translation (NAT) type to fix Xbox One connection problems.

If you are experiencing that problem, you will also have to forward ports in your router's advanced settings.

Here are the ports that you typically need to forward:

  • TCP: 53, 80, 3074
  • UDP: 53, 88, 500, 3074, 3544, 4500

Depending on your router, you may be able to set a static IP address from the router control panel. If that isn't possible, you can set a static IP right from the Xbox One itself.

How to Set a Static IP Address for Xbox One

Setting a static IP address for an Xbox One only takes a few more steps than it takes to find the IP address in the first place:

  1. Open System > Settings.

  2. Select Network > Network settings.

  3. Select Advanced settings.

  4. Write down the current IP address.

  5. Select IP settings.

  6. Switch from Automatic to Manual.

  7. Input the IP address you wrote down in a previous step, and press Enter.

You can enter any IP address you want, but using the already assigned one ensures that you won't accidentally create a conflict.
