View Full Version : Poor network connection, strict firewall?
11-08-2008, 10:07 AM
Hello, when i try to start up a game in a public or private party the game tells me I have poor network connection because of a strict firewall, i never had this problem in gow1. I think it has something to do with this new matchmaking system. Can anyone help me with this problem, i havent the slightest idea where to start. Thanks

It's prolly your routers NAT settings. Test your Xbox LIVE connection.

Yeah xbox says i have moderate NAT settings. I was searching around further and some people were saying that i have to forward ports on my router or something. I really had no clue what they were talking about though. Does anyone have any further insight into this?

Ok I have checked me router and fire wall is off,and me NAT is open,so I recon its the servers getting rammed full of people,in the first weeks,so it pops up the firewall cac,Ive been back on since and its been fine so far,2 million people have the game now,so it could be the servers not us.Hope im right though lol,cus outher wise I havent the faintest clue .

Mine said that before, and i looked and my NAT was strict, which had never effected me finding a game before so idk. I fixed it, and now its on open, but that did absolutly nothing for me and i still canot find a game, and when i played on my friends yesterday it worked perfect, found a game in like 2 minutes. wtf epic say sumthing.

Yeah, my Nat is open and it doesnt work. I have a Bt Home Hub and a guy said,
Go into your router's setup by putting the Ip address into a browser. Then go into Advanced settings. On the model I have there is a a menu with a list of NAT settings, and on there is 'Xbox Live Games'. enable this, and restart your router. If this is already enabled, then disable it, then re-enable it, and restart your router. It should fix your problem. It works for me whenever I get that error message anyway.
That didnt fix it, and i even tried to create my own conection thing but it doesnt work. Any pointers?
