Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Inability to connect with a specific person

My brother lives in Kansas and I live in Maryland. We can both go on line live and play and talk to others but I cannot invite him into a private chat or game nor can he invite me. We can invite each other into a third person game and talk to each other. We can leave audio messages for each other but cannot talk directly except via third party games.

I am wired through Comcast and he is using a cellphone air card. We have both changed our router setting to Open on the NAT. What is preventing us from talking directly? This is perplexing as we can both talk and play with everyone else, just not each other.

There should be an option for AUTO settings. Make sure that is selected and it should fix your problem. If not, post here again and I'll help further.

Ping is high at closest server. But low at servers much further

hello there i have built many wifi networks and install networks for server hosts.
I would try setting your port forward to the correct port that xbox live runs on.
also uncheck Qos (quality of service) this will throttle bandwidth, you want this off.

Xbox 360 live headset

Try sending yourself a message and see if you hit play (after recording the message) you can hear yourself. Sometimes Ive been playing games like GRAW2 online and when I lose connection with the host or something along those lines my mic will stop working untill I reset the console. Also, most games will have some kind of an indicator when you are on Live that show when someone is talking. Do these indicators activate at all? (usually a small volume symbol that will light up next to the persons gamertag)
