My nat is open. The other persons is. My connection is great. My modem is set to dmz host. I have gold. Everything is perfectly fine.


What's even more confusig is that sometimes it let's me join without a problem.. What gives?

Microsoft said that they were going to look into it and get back with me somewhere between Wednesday and Friday. In the meantime I'm paying xbox to not be able to play with my friends. Been like this for months. They said they might be able to compensate for the loss though.

What game?

I think I might know the reason.
one person is running version of game x while another is running game version whatever.

make sure you both have the same version.
Old School Games FTW!

It's not just games. It's also just joining the party with each other

Just because you are set as the DMZ host, doesn't mean you don't have an OPEN NAT.

You need to check that.

Testing as "open" doesn't really mean that it's perfect, and sometimes doing things like making a manual IP address on the 360 itself may be causing the problem..

If you want help, post the modem and router model number. Both the modem, and the router.

Modem/router combos generally aren't the best routers but the problem may not be with you. What makes you think the problem is you? Is it perhaps the other guy or guys who are trying to connect?

Not everyone can be your friend.
Just be happy that you can make any kind of connection at all.
Whatever you do don't give up. Keep trying and you will find that special someone who is easy to connect with.
And now for something completely the same.
