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

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 need to change my nat settings in order to use my xbox live


I know exactly what you're going through

Give the router's Customer service a call.

Then tell them you need to do Port Forwarding for Xbox Live

On my Belkin I had to do the same thing, but i also set the xbox to run on a separate I.P address, and then turned the firewall off on that I.P specifically.

The ports should be :

* TCP 80
* UDP 88
* UDP 3074
* TCP 3074
* UDP 53
* TCP 53

If that doesnt work it may be your bandwidth. I have been having issues with my wireless on Live because of having too many things running. Try unplugging the ethernet from some things in your home, or turning off the wireless on your laptops before doing this, just to make sure that's really what's wrong.

Good luck, and happy gaming.

I have a Cayman 3347w wireless router and I am trying to use one of the wired slots to connect my xbox 360 to the internet. the xbox will not connect. is this router xbox compatable?


Please try the following steps below;

To make a router connection to Xbox LIVE:
  1. Before you connect any cables, turn off your router, modem, PC, and Xbox 360 console. (Unplug your modem from its power source to turn it off.)
  2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your modem and the other end to the Ethernet input port on the back of your router.
  3. With another Ethernet cable, connect one end to one of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
  4. With the third Ethernet cable, connect one end to another of the router's Ethernet output ports. Connect the other end to the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.
  5. Turn on your modem, then your router, then your PC.
  6. Make sure your PC can access the Internet. If not, you may need to configure the router for Internet access. For help configuring the router using your PC, check the instructions that came with the router.
  7. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and sign in with your profile.
  8. If this is the first time you've turned on your Xbox 360 console, see Create Your Gamer Profile to get started with both the Xbox 360 system and Xbox LIVE play.
If you're unable to connect to Xbox LIVE, you can try to diagnose the problem right on your console. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings, then select Network Settings (setup XBOX using Automatic Configuration DHCP), Test Xbox LIVE Connection.

Hope this helps!

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.

Cannot connect xbox 360 to wireless router


If you use DSL I would also check to make sure you are not being port blocked by your ISP. Some will block you if you exceed bandwidth on a particular port rather than throttling you or shutting you down entirely.

My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE


hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

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.
