    xbox live help

    Just set up an xbox 360 for my gf that I bought off here a month or so ago... I've paid for gold membership and have had confirmation of payment.

    however when we try n chat to each other over xbox live it says joining then the name disappears and we don't connect.

    also tried r6v and can't join each others games

    yeah mate its your NAT problems, go to your system blade and test connection, either your or your G.F is either "Moderate" or "strict", it needs to be "open".

    I think thats the best site that can help you. or you could change your routers.

    If your NAT is not open you may have to setup port forwarding. This site explains all and has instructions for lots of different routers.....

    you need to open the ports on your router
