For some reason I used to but now I can't connect to a friend in cod5 on xbox live.

Anyone know why or a solution?


Is it a problem with NAT settings on your xbox - they should say open if you test your connection......

NAT is strict. Anyone know how to change this?


NAT is strict.

That may well be your problem. What is your setup? are you connecting via a wireless router?

I had to set up port forwarding on my router - try this site, by following the instructions on here for my router, I got mine to work (ie NAT open)

NAT will almost certainly be your problem if it's strict. Are you using a bridged connection by any chance?

i get this sometimes, but the ports are open, so all i do is unplug the router from the mains supply for a few seconds and then plug in again so the router reboots. always works for me
