    I got a Motorola wired modem and it dosn't let me play xbox live why?

    you may have to open a port that you xbox can use to connect to xbox live
      • 1 Connect only your Xbox and computer to the Internet. Disconnect all other devices. This is done to easily determine the Xbox's IP address, which is used in the Port Forwarding process.
      • 2 Open the Windows Command Prompt from the Start Menu. Click "Start > Run...," then type in "cmd" and hit "OK."
      • 3 Enter "ipconfig" n the command prompt. A list of IP addresses pop ups. Write down the IP address of your computer.
      • 4 Open your router setup utility through a web browser. Use the given directions from your router manufacturer to do so. Generally, the configuration page is opened by inputting the router IP address into the URL in the following format: http://123.456.7.8/ (where the IP Address number is unique to the router manufacturer).
      • 5 Open the "DCHP Client List" section of the router setup utility. This lists the devices currently connected to the Internet through the router, which is your computer and Xbox. Write down your Xbox's IP address (in this case, the one that is not your computer's IP address).
      • 6 Navigate to the "Virtual Servers" or "Port Forwarding" menu in your router setup utility. Most manufacturers have a side menu on their router setup utility, which is generally a section under your "Firewall" settings.
      • 7 Input the following port numbers and your Xbox's IP address into your router's port forwarding configuration:
        TCP 80
        UDP 88
        UDP 3074
        TCP 3074
        UDP 53
        TCP 53
        Placing these numbers in the port forwarding menu opens up the required ports that your Xbox needs to connect to the Xbox LIVE network. Save this configuration.
      • 8 Start up Xbox LIVE to check your connection. If you have no problem connecting, then you have successfully forwarded the required ports.

    How do I get two xbox 360s to have an open NAT on a Cisco Linksys WRT160N V2 wireless router?

    you need to setup both your xboxes with a static IP address for example xbox 1 xbox 2
    on your linksys router you will need to setup port forwards for both xboxes

    Click the Applications & Gaming link near the top of the page.

    You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Range Forward.

    requires you to forward the following ports: 53,80,88,1863,3074

    I'm trying to play my xbox, and the message keeps saying to go to the router configuration web page to make sure port 3074 is open in my firewall... But I can't find it anywhere, the port OR the web page.

    You have to go to the router setup page and go to port forwarding menu. Forward means "open" in router terms. So just forward the ports you need so your xbox will be able to communicate to the internet via the router.

    I have a BEFSR41 Lynksis router and when i try to connect to xbox live it tells me my NAT type is Moderate and it should be Open. How do i change it to Open?

    Xbox LIVE has default ports that needs to be forwarded on the router.

    To forward the ports, access the setup page of the router. In your internet browser's address bar type

    Leave the username blank and then the password is admin.

    Go to the Applications & Gaming tab, click Port Range Forwarding.

    In the application field, type XBOX LIVE.

    Start End Protocol
    53 53 Both
    3074 3074 Both
    80 80 TCP
    88 88 UDP

    In the IP address field, type the IP address of the XBOX. Check the enable button. Then save settings.

    Good luck!

    Xbox live connection: My NAT

    its likely your router needs to have port forwarding setup on it, or you could try setting up your Xbox ip address as a DMZ on your router.

    however some routers simply wont work, I had a voyager 105 using port forwarding but it still never worked till i changed to a Draytek

    post more details of your router and what you have tried.
