Open ports on wireless router

I am using the zyxel router to connect to xbox live and been having some connection issues. I called xbox and they said I need to open 3 ports on the router (UDP88, UDP3074, and TCP3074). They had no idea how to do it and the manufacturer for the router is no longer open. Can anyone tell me how to do this? (step by step please, I'm not very tech. savy)
Thanks! Jennica

    Sorry, I meant to post for additional information, instead of solution on my first try (still new to this site)...this should be helpful-

    First, go to this link: Static IP for XBox 360 to set your IP on your XBox.

    Then go here: X-550 on a walkthrough on the port opening.

    Hope this helps.

Xbox360 live setup


You need to forward these ports on both your router, and computer aswell as firewall you got one of those.

  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)

You might aswell need to open 1863 (UDP and TCP) if you want to use video chat for the kinect.
Listed ports need to be forwarded when connecting to XBOX Live
A more detailed guide to setting it up is available here: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/xbox-360/networking/network-ports-used-xbox-live

Tip

How to set up WiFi on XBOX


To connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.
Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.
On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.
On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead. Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.

How do I use my router so I can open NAT on my xbox for xbox live?


1 Make sure your ZyXEL Device hardware is properly connected (refer to the Quick StartGuide).2 Prepare your computer/computer network to connect to the ZyXEL Device (refer to theQuick Start Guide).3 Launch your web browser.4 Type "192.168.1.1" as the URL.5 A window displays
6 For administrator access enter the default admin password 1234 to configure the wizardsand the advanced features.(or if you already changed your password, enter that password)7 On the right hand side of the screen you will see a drop down menu. click on NETWORK. 8 Then click on NAT.9 Find the area to configure Port Forwarding.10 The ports that Microsoft recommends to be open are:88 UDP3074 UDP3074 TCP
It also looks like you will have to set up a static address (I was looking at the .pdf for your particular router) You can do this by editing your network setting on your XBOX console, and then using this address as your "server" address when opening the above mentioned ports on your router.

I have a strict NAT on my xbox 360 and I can't connect to some xbox parties. How do I open my NAT?


Before connecting the X-box or play station or nintendo WII to the network, Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router.
if you don't know the wireless settings , then you will need to open the router set up to find the wireless settings.

Once you have all the wireless settings of the router, you are ready to connect the play station or the x-box to the wireless network.

Trouble connecting to the internet on X-box ,Play station or WII ?

You can try to reduce the MTU settings on the router. if the MTU on the router is set to 1500 then change the MTU to 1365.
Also you will need to open the ports on the router.
For WII port numbers are ==> 28910, 29900, 29901, 29920, 80, 443.
For XBOX port numbers are ==> 53, 80-88, 3074
For Play station port numbers are ==> 80, 443-447 ,5223, 3478-3479, 3658, 10070-10080.




X-BOX

On the x-box you will need to connect to the wireless network now.
Open the main Interface of the X-Box.

1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again.

Set nat to open


These routers have a setting underneath the advanced tab (within advanced setup) called UPNP.....all three of the active tick boxes need a tick in (by default they don't) and this will sort the NAT stuff out.

Play on xbox live via wireless


First your setup should be, wall (isp) > Actiontec DSL Gateway > Zyxel router > your computer

If that is already setup right, try the ip address of 192.168.1.1, some routers use this ip rather that 192.168.0.1

Hope that helps.
