Will not let me download or update xbox but will let me play games online and also communicate with people but the internet is working fine


use port forwarding or port triggering in your router to make sure that all of the appropriate ports for Xbox Live are open. To do this, you would need to make the Xbox IP address static first.

portforward.com has an easy to follow instructions on how to do this for many many different types of routers. It even gives you the instructions on how to specifically set the ports for Xbox Live.

My Modern Warfare 2 Game Wont Let Me Play... Please Help!!!


It could be your router or network settings for your internet. Do you use Port forwarding? The Playstation site tells you all the ports you need to use. Also try putting your playstation in a DMZ.

I have a PS3 in one room and my computer and internet in another. I have bought a wireless router but it is hooked up in the room with the computer. I don't want to have to run a cable to the other end of...


Check your wireless network name in your computer if it is wireless enabled.
Then go to your PS3. Go into the network settings and check if the wireless connection is detected.
When you check the network settings, make sure that ip and dns settings are set to automatic.
After that you would need to open some ports on the comp for your PS3 so that you can play online.
Also let us know the make and model no of your router so that we could tell how to open the ports on the router GUI.
Very first thing your PS3 should detect the wireless connection on it.

Playing Online Games Behind The Router

A router uses a combination of hardware and software to prevent unauthorized users or internet traffic from accessing your private local area network (LAN). If your game console, such as Playstation is behind the router, you will need to configure routers Port Forwarding feature in order to play online games.

Note: You will need to get the ports and service type for your games. This is usually available from the games website.

Steps how to configure router to play online games:
  1. Open a browser and type in the following URL: http://www.routerlogin.com or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  2. Type the Username as admin and the Password as password and click OK.
  3. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced menu.
  4. Then click on Add Custom Service
5. Under Service Name, type the name of the game.
  • Select the Service Type from the drop down menu (depending on the game).
  • Type the Starting Port and Ending Port numbers (depending on the game).
  • Type the IP address of your PlayStation in the Server IP Address box and click Apply.
  • Click on WAN Setup under ADVANCED menu.
    • Check the Disable SPI firewall box
    • Change MTU size from 1500 (which is the default) to 1300 and click Apply.
    Now the Playstation is ready to use.

    I hope this helps...

    When playing online games behind a firewall or router you need to open the ports(both incoming and outgoing(TCP/UDP)) that the game uses. I think someone did a reset on your router that's why your unable to play online games. It would also be helpful if you would mention what type of online game your trying to play.

    Won't let me connect to PlayStation 2 online


    no need to turn off the router's firewall... just forward the ps2 port number on the router. make sure you manually assign static ip address to your ps2.

    You are having port issue with your router. If you could careless about playing the online content just sign out of the PSN and the game will work fine. If you want the online content/games you need to open/forward a lot of ports on your router. I had the same problem. The ports required are as follows: Port type: TCP: 9293; 6358; 25; 110; 80; 443; 5223; 10070-10080; 50000-65535*. Port type: UDP: 3074; 3075; 3658; 3478; 3479; 6000-6999; 7000; 50000-65535*. If you don't know how to open/forward ports call the router manufacturer and ask. *some routers will only let you enter 65534, but try 65535 first.
