Fight Night Round 4 is working for me..................are you trying to play Battlefield 1943? If so then that's your problem........their server is not big enough and doesn't work 99% of the time on that game.

It was working when i was on about an hour or so ago..........they may have a problem or maintanence for a while now then. Probably updating the Battlefield server with any luck.

Was about to have a game of Tiger 10 as well :-( Maybe not now.

I heard if you download the FaceBraker demo it will redo your EA information or something and work so could give that a try.

Could it be our slow connection (Adsl) we could never get online to play fifa so we took our hardrive around a friends with a cable connection and it worked straight away and set us up with an EA account, brought it back home and won't connect. This is an ongoing issue not just today. Any ideas?

I'm with Sky Max and it's fine. Ring Sky and get them to check your line........also check on XBOX.com and it will tell you what ports to have open for optimum speed. :)

You need UDP port 88 and TCP + UDP port 3074 opened for xbox live to work properly. Also make sure you're not blocking anonymous internet requests. :thumbsup:

Here you go for the ports http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874

And configure your Sky router with this http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/view-router.html

:)

Yes........pretty much the same. :)
#14
This is the only option i have on the firewall settings:
This page summarizes the overall security policy configured on your SpeedTouch.


Security Settings



Security Level: BlockAll

Use this Security Level to block all traffic from and to the Internet. Game & Application sharing is not allowed by the firewall.

Standard

Use this Security Level to allow all outgoing connections and block all incoming traffic. Game & Application sharing is allowed by the firewall..

Disabled

Disable the firewall. All traffic is allowed to pass through your SpeedTouch. Game & Application sharing is allowed by the firewall.


Should i change these?
[mod]#15
Sounds like the problem but i wouldn't want to say what to do as i wouldn't want to be to blame for a balls up. :oops:

I get around 12MB as i'm a way off the exchange. :)

I've disabled the firewall but still not working. We only get around 3mb, Do you think this is the problem

It shouldn't be. As i play with people who only have 2mb with no probs. Are you running any bittorrent or similar that maybe throttling the connection?
#23
No nothing like that
#24
EA's servers are a bit borked atm.
#25
Just done a speed test and ours is Download 2.07, Upload 0.30. Does this sound poor? when we are paying for 8mb

Doesn't sound great for 8mb but it depends on the exchange. Give the sky router a whirl and see if that fixes it. :)

IT DID :-D
I can't believe i did'nt try this months ago. :roll:
Thanks ever so much for your help.
We changed it because my ipod touch and ds won't work with this router but now i'll have to look into getting these working. The xbox comes first for now.
Thanks again, Rep added.:thumbsup:
