port forwarding

#1xdJEBUSbxPosted 12/1/2010 9:10:24 PM
I have a linksys wrt310v2 and i have upnp enabled, but I am still having trouble finding games at all times of the day. It is so bad that it won't even find a game and start a lobby with just me in it and where 7 other people have to join just to make it a game. This also was happening with modern warfare 2. if anyone could help it would be so so helpful.

Thanks for reading

you NAT is most likely on moderate, you need to open 6 ports in your touter settings, under port forwarding, to have an open NAT

TCP80
UDP88
UDP3074
TCP3074
UDP53
TCP53


those are the 6 ports you need to open manually

nat type is open... you might be thinking it is just my internet speed, but when i plug is straight into the modem it works like a dream and i get host pretty often. does this help you at all?

alright, i have a couple of questions about port forwarding...

set the ip address to the address of the xbox?

And

the beginning and end port are the same, correct?

the problem is when you plug your xbox in through the router rught? and its works fine with it straight in the modem right? are you sure your NAT is open when it is going through the router, because I have the same exact problem, that is solved when I run it straight through the modem instead of the router.

and for example to open port TCP 80,

you put port:80 TO port:80 and than there should be a selection where you pick TCP/UDP or both

call your router company tomorrow, your going to need to know the user name and password to login into your router settings, which is done by typing 192.168.1.1 in your address bar
