Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360

I am not computer literate, so please bare with me.

I am having extreme difficulty playing online games on my XBox 360. When trying to join a game or session, I receive kmessages such as " could not connect to host", etc. .

I have troubleshooted as much as I know, including contacting XBox- they indicate the problem is with my router.

In order to play online now, I have to plug my XBox directly into my cable modem, to which I have no problem playing online at that time.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated; maybe a step by step process to ensure I am setting up the router correctly.

Thanks yeah me too i have it plugged into my router and it says my NAT is open... but i cant play with one of my friends and he has his NAT set to strict. but he can play with the same people i can play with. its just that i cant play with him online. just him. NEED HELP. email me at mattbnfla@aol.com

If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

My NAT is open, I have 3 ports forwarded, and I've increased my MTU size. When I try to play GTAIV online, it tells me "disconnected from game session. Returning to single player." or "your router NAT is too strict." I have a Netgear WGR614(54 mbps). HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have an xbox 360{wireless} set up with live play, and it says the NAT Type is set to Moderate. How do I do that?


have you heard of the expression if it isn't broke dont fix it?

Unless you are having serious issues while playing games dont do anything, the only time that will affect you is if you stream 1080p video through the xbox . In other words if you watch high def movies on your xbox 360

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

X-BOX


On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.

2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.

3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.

4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.

5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.

6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.



Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365. Also you will need to open the ports on the router.

For X-box port numbers are - 53, 80-88, 3074 .

I try to plug in my belkin 54 wireless usb thing into my xbox 360 and my xbox doesnt even recognize that it is in there and i dont know where to start but i would like to be able to play games online and...


Hi,

XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless

All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online

alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key

Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work

Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable

(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)

Can't play xbox 360 and have computer onlin on Netgear Router


1. If this is wireless I would try position the game box closer to the router or hard wire to the game box if possible.
2. You also may have a problem with bandwidth. The other computer is competing with your Xbox for bandwidth and the switch may not be able to supply it to both the device at the same time.
3. check if your router to see if you have QOS ( quality of service). Log into the router and check this feature to see if it is enabled.

How do i set my Netgear Routers NAT type to open for playing xbox 360 games?


Ok in order to help you resolve this issue I need more information. Is this a newly setup router? Did you setup any type of security? WEP OR WPA these are encryption tools that allow only you to get onto your network.

X box 360


You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.
