Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I've been able to play xbox live in the past with just my modem but then i got a new belkin F5D9230-4 router.Every time i can connect to xbox live but within diffrent times it'll either kick me out of games or kick me out of chat. i looked everywere for info and ive open the ports 88 udp, udp 3074 and tcp 3074. i even used the dmz and it didn't work. the connections fine and i have upnp enabled.is there anyhting else i can do?
I was having troubles with a belkin router as well. i called belkin tech support and they never helped as they would not accept that the router was the problem. i found i could connect the xbox directly to a modem and it would work fine but when i connected it through the router it would always disconnect from games or not allow me to join a game, only host them, with no one else joining. no matter if i forwarded the appropriate ports, put the specific ip address into the dmz or even turn upnp on (i've tried different combos of each, all on at same time, to even setting up manually) and nothing would change. I found that the router had an option to turn off NAT which belkin told me would render the router useless. I decided to go against them, turned it off and set the ip and dns to go with the modem. Now everything works fine as the router just acts as an expensive multi plug and wireless system. all the computers in the house can connect to the internet at the same time and access eachothers hard drives and i can access xbox live fine with no problems. there is also no lag when playing gtaIV multiplayer with 15 other players. i hate belkin tech support and i will not pay for another expensive multi plug connector from belkin... ever.

Try to reduce the MTU on your router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492 and save the settings. Power cycle your modem and router then check if it does the same problem.

the solution is as such, first log into your router by typing the routers IP (192.168.2.1) into your browser.
The first thing you want to do is set UPnP to be enabled.
Forget about the 88 UDP thing, it's bogus.
Just set the TCP and the UDP to 3074 in virtual server.
I swear to god it will work.
