My Internet connection or Wifi works perfectly fine for online gaming, but the app call of duty world at war zombies says your connection does not support online multiplayer what do I do want to play...


From Activision's website:
If you are having a problem connecting to an online game check the following:
  • Make sure that you are playing in WiFi. This game will not work over 3G.

  • Disable any firewall or security features on your router


  • Set port forwarding on your router to the IP address of your iPhone/iPod Touch. This game uses ports 3074 and 3478 (UDP/TCP)

    - Place your iPhone/iPod Touch into the DMZ of your router

    - If your modem supports a wireless connection then try turning off the router and connect wirelessly directly to the modem. If it works regularly at this point something about your router may not be completely compatible with the specific needs of this game. Check with your router manufacturer for additional steps that may need to be done to resolve the issue you are having.

    NOTE: If setting port forwarding or DMZ helps your connection issue, you may want to assign your iPhone/iPod Touch a static IP address within your home network. This can help to ensure that the configurations you made do not need to be done again.

    NOTE: Many broadband internet modems are coming with routing capabilities built in. Please contact your internet service provider to determine if your internet modem has an integrated router. If it does, they should be able to assist you with the steps above for setting up your router.

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.

it is the problem with router....the firewall built-in in the router will not allow certain gaming devices to go online...for this purpose you need to forward certain ports in the belkin router...for the list of port numbers to be forwarded, contact xbox vendor....once you got those port numbers, you can call 24x7 toll free belkin tech support(1800-2-235546)(1800-2-belkin) and ask them to assist u to forward ports... or you can can connect a computer to one of the wired ports(1 to 4) and open internet explorer and type 192.168.2.1 in address bar and hit "enter key". you ll see belkin router setup page...on the left side you ll find "virtual servers"...open that link(if it asks password, leave it blank and click submit) fill the IP address of your xbox in that form and type the port numbers and select appropriate (tcp/udp)... also click on"firewall" in left and disable it.... also click on DMZ in left and type your xbox ip address there and enable it... thats it.... you are done with that...

Xbox360 elite


contact the router company have them walk u through make sure these ports are open
If you have not already forwarded ports for your xbox through your router then that may be your problem.

The following ports must be available to your Xbox 360 console for Xbox LIVE to operate correctly:


  • TCP 80
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074
  • UDP 53
  • TCP 53

    Firewall settings blocking internet from Live. I know which ports need to be open, but i dont know how to open them (I have a U.S Robotics router)


    You must do port forwarding now to resolve the firewall problem. Call xbox on what port you must forward on the router's admin page for the xbox live. If I remember it correctly, xbox live uses port 3074 TCP and UDP, 88 TCP and UDP, 53 TCP and UDP, 80 TCP and UDP

    Hi i have a satellite internet provider and im trying to set up my linksys broadband router so i can hook up my xbox 360 my problem is everytime i hook it up im getting no internet connection can you tell...


    hi,
    there are two things to be addressed in this case.firstly you have a satellite internet provider which can create consistency issue.then when you connect a xbox to router you need to do a port forwading on linksys router(port forwarding=opening ports in router so your xbox can communicate freely).in order to do the port forwarding you have to log onto router user interface.then go to applications and gaming tab,where you can do the port forwarding.
    but before doing so,you have to contact microsoft to know the ip address assigned to the xbox and the ports(numbers) to be opened.
    thank you.

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


    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!
