Now, avoid Port Triggering if at all possible. Before you follow any of
these instructions, read what Port Forwarding is, and what Port
Triggering is, and what it does.
Your router may have some built in forwarding, so check it out and see
if you can locate your manual on those pages. This website has many
manuals for such configurations, but it is best to do what you can in
your router on your own.
What you need to look for on your router configuration pages is the
Virtual settings. The page will have a drop down list with several dozen
options to choose from. You will need to know what type of service or
program allows the Xbox Live parties, and then look for it in the list.
If it is in the list, click on it, and it will automatically be added to
Another option you need to consider is enabling UpnP, in your router,
which enabled your programs to talk to the router and make
configurations automatically within the router automatically without any
input from you. Locate that setting in your config pages and enabled it
as it usually ships disabled on routers. After you enable this option,
see if you can properly connect to the party before setting any ports
manually or in the routers virtual config page.
If it doesn't work, leave it enabled, but locate your program in the
list. If it is not there, then use the link I gave you to locate your
router, and the program you need to use.
The worst scenario is that you will need to contact Microsoft with
questions on how to setup Xbox Live as you need it in your router, or
your computer manufacturer. You may even want to consider contacting the
manufacturer of your router and see if the tech department can help you
configure this properly.
