My xbox just takes it upon itself to start acting like a little baby not getting its way and starts kicking me out of parties and giving me two yellow bar connection on cod5 so that its not bad enough for me to stop playing but bad enough for me to keep complaining about it and have my *** handed to me while I shoot someone that's not even looking at me and yet they can turn around and shoot me between the eyes . I have a wireless internet modem in the room across from me and in the mornings I can host matches because my connection is so good. At first I thought it was congestion from all my neighbours internets but it kicks me offline at 3am when no one else would be on. can anyone help me before I throw it out the window and break it like my first xbox (which actually got 1 ring of death after 3 years).

Well, it's very possible if you are using a wireless router that your connection may not be strong enough. XBOX Live and most online gaming requires a steady. strong, high bandwith connection. A weak singnal, OR someone else using up the bandwith (i.e. someone downloading music on another computer connected to your router) can cause the problem.
If you're using a wireless connection, try moving the router and wireless game adapter closer to each other.
If you're using a hardwire connection from one of the routers outgong ports then make sure other's aren't on the internet (Or at least aren't using alot of bandwith) while XBOX Live is being used.
Please remember also that if you have a wireless network and you haven't implimented wireless secruity (i.e. WEP or WPA encryption) then your network is "Open" and anyone within range can connect and use up your bandwith,
You would think that Xbox 360 would be perfectly compatible with UPnP. They should be communicating with each other just fine, (UPnP talks to NATPMP to automatically open and forward appropriate ports), and the game's datastream is probably entirely connectionless aside from the initial handshake (UDP).
To log into your router console, type "http://192.168.0.1" into your browser, for the username enter "admin" and do not put in a password. To enabled Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), click ADVANCED and on the left side click DMZ.
You will need to know the internal IP address to the XBOX360, which can be found on the "CABLE TEST" or "LAN" page in the router console.
If you find that you cannot log into the router console with the supplied information, you need to press the little reset button with a pen for like 10 seconds.
If you cannot reach the router console at 192.168.0.1 then you need to go to Network Connections in windows and find out the "Default Gateway IP" which is the router's internal IP.
The XBOX360's internal IP address will be in the same format as your computer's (if you only have one computer, the XBOX360's IP will probably be 192.168.0.101 and your computer's should be 192.168.0.100). All of these are default values. You can change them in the router console as you please.
