Normal Person's Guide...

Well... there goes Cable and Wiggy.

Great info, Fox.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Your list:

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

portforward.com shows these plus Port 1863 (UDP and TCP)

Any idea why?  I'm hoping port forwarding will improve things I may just put the xbox on the DMZ and not bother with port forwarding.

1863 UDP/TCP is for video Kinect chatting. I'll add it in just to make the entire piece more thorough.

Thanks!

Just tried putting the xbox in the DMZ but I guess my 25d/5u FiOS connection just sucks I can never get more then 2 or 3 bars on a connection

This is soooo frustrating it seems to be getting worse.  Anyone have any idea what I can do to improve the amount of lag and the 2 to 3 bar connection I'm getting with every match?

That's entirely dependent on what your setup is.

Feel free to email me for a more private chat or we can do this all in public.

What kind of modem do you have. What kind of router are you using. Are you connected via wires or wireless? What game are you trying to play?
