Xbox Live is really annoying me now

I can can conncect to Xbox Live but apprantley my NAT configuration is set to strict so I can't join my friends on joinable online games, or talk to them in private chat, and that's with the wirless network adapter.

But when I did it with the wired connectino it was fine but yesterday when I saw the wirless was doing that I went and tested for the wired, and weirdly enough the same thing happened that NAT was strict. But the other day it wasn't.

Does anyone know how to help me?

See if your router has any options for UPnP? If that's on, it might help.

If you don't know how to get to your router, open up a cmd prompt (start/run: cmd) and then type "ipconfig". Then go to the "default gateway" in your web browser, e.g. http://10.1.1.1

It shouldn't. The idea is programs can open up specific ports on the outside, to be forwarded to them so that useful traffic can get through. That way, for example, someone can send you a file without you both having to send packets via a server that you're both connected to.

Programs that use UPnP should close the ports they open after use, and most routers will do so automatically if they don't. (Just having a port there doesn't really mean anything if nothing is listening on your computer's end, anyway.)

It should do! There are manuals - you need the version number to get the right one.

You can get newer firmware from there, too. Again, be sure to have the right version.
