Hello your Belkin Routers has a Firewall Feature on it which might be blocking you to Play games on your Xbox.

To Solve this Issue you Just have to open Ports on the Router For your Routers Ip Address or Enable DMZ ( De-militarized zone). Which will Open all the Ports on the router for an Ip address.

---> Steps to Enable DMZ on the Belkin Router


- Connect your Computer to the Router using an Ethernet Cable.

- Open Internet Browser & Goto 192.168.2.1 it will take you to Router Setup Page

- Towards your Left Pane Click DMZ Under Firewall

- Leave the Password Box Blank & Click Submit

- In the Private Ip Box Type in any Numbers in range of 2 - 254. EG: 192.168.2.9

My belking keeps losing connection during games?


If your wireless you probably need to change broadcast channels on the router ( to the last channel) if its hard wired, you probably need to port forward the ip address for the Xbox

Many routers need to be optimized for xbox connections or you will have serious latency problems. You can find out how to do this by going to the manufacturer of your routers homepage and search support for "xbox."

Xbox Live Can't Connect to Friends


Hi akemccarthy

you may need to open the ports for the linksys Router aswell
because the linksys links the belkin to the internet there using a shared connection

once youve fowarded the ports properly check to see if you have enabled the UPNP on both of the routers if they have any

heres a website showing how to port forward the ports you need opening

How to change my NAT


You need to check first if your router is Xbox Live compatible (all routers will work, but only certain ones will allow an open NAT):
http://www.xbox.com/en-us/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

If your router IS on the list, make sure you have a compatible firmware version (usually the firmware version is written on the router somewhere). If you do not have the proper firmware, you will need to downgrade your firmware (reply to me for instructions on this).

If your router is not on the list, you're outta luck.

Belkin F5D9230-4 router with xbox live


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.

Hooking up xbox live


Well, it's very possible if you are using a wireless router that your connection may not be strong enough. XBOX Live and most online gaming requires a steady. strong, high bandwith connection. A weak singnal, OR someone else using up the bandwith (i.e. someone downloading music on another computer connected to your router) can cause the problem.
If you're using a wireless connection, try moving the router and wireless game adapter closer to each other.
If you're using a hardwire connection from one of the routers outgong ports then make sure other's aren't on the internet (Or at least aren't using alot of bandwith) while XBOX Live is being used.
Please remember also that if you have a wireless network and you haven't implimented wireless secruity (i.e. WEP or WPA encryption) then your network is "Open" and anyone within range can connect and use up your bandwith,
