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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Xbox360 wont play origanal xbox games


Some XBox games have both a 360 and original XBox version, so you can't play them on the 360. Other games simply aren't compatible. Your game may fall into one of those two groups.

Bad xbox 360 connection


You have two options to improve connectivity:

1) Move your XBox closer to the router. If you are connecting wirelessly, move your XBox as close as possible to your router. The farther away they are, the slower your connection speed.

2) Purchase an ethernet cable and plug it in. An ethernet cable can connect to your router and be plugged into the back of your XBox. This is the best way to utilize as much juice as possible from your router and get you the connection speeds you need to play online. Ethernet cables run about $20 depending on the length and quality, but its a great investment if you are doing a lot of online gaming.

Hope that helps!

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)

I want to play oddworld on my 360 it is an xbox


This is not the case. Microsoft has not converted all games over from the original xbox, to have the ability to play them on the 360. On the Xbox website there is a list of compatible games that can be use on the 360. Here is the link. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/backwardscompatibility.htm I hope this helps.
