title ^ i need some help with my xbox 360 and live cheers!
jungledon <<------ Swear he know's EVERYTHINK to do with computers internet etc, or dustek ...............
what i did for my neatgear router was create a firewall rule that allow the IP address and ports my xbox 360 used, you check those on your xbox, your better off googling it tho, try find a guide
i think you need to tell the node(P.C) or server your connecting to your port number so they can communicate(Send packets of information) with other.
Never really messed with port numbers other than when im downloading and it goes shitty slow, then i change my port, more like a refresh.
Static ip means your internet protocol(Address of your pc) never changes. 22.214.171.124
BLAH BLAH BLAH
port forwarding is basically telling your routers firewall/ Net Access Translation (NAT) to accept connections inbound (other players/live) and outbound (your game) to your xbox 360
mate you should be able to find a guide on here on how to set up a static ip address and then look up your router and it'll give you a step by step guide on how to forward ports for your 360 n everything else
its a bit long to do if you're a bit retarded like me but aslong as you follow the steps its easy
http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip.htm - static ip
http://portforward.com/routers.htm - look up your router then click on the xbox 360 thing
yeah i did that mate, and when i made the static i.p i couldnt connect to the tinternet. i need like step by step guidance i phoned up talk talk and some complete and utter cock spoke to me, he was so much hassle, i asked to file a complaint against him and he shit his pants, and then he was making the situation even more tedious so i just hung up - like a man!
