If you are able to connect to the network when bypassing your router, you may need to configure your router to allow network communication on the specific ports required for Xbox Live. For Xbox Live to work correctly, the following ports need to be open:

UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074

So, block those ports.

shanafan...why would doing this be better than just unplugging the ethernet cord when you have the chip on?

Then how can you play on X-Link or XBC?

(BTW, reason I made this topic is so my pinned topic can link to it)

And UDP 88 is just for kerberos authentication which won't ban you so you could just block tcp/udp 3074 and you'll never be banned. Though if you are behind a firewall, to get xblive to work, you'd need to open all three.

Has anyone tried blocking those ports to prevent getting banned?

This is the perfect way to make sure that my brother or his friends don't get me banned by trying to connect to live while the modchip is on and i'm not around.

I have currently blocked UDP/TCP 3074 on my router. If I have my mod chip on and "somebody" accidentally chooses an XBOX Live option on a game CD, do I still run the risk of having my Evox Dash replaced with M$? I am trying to think of a fool proof way to make sure my dash doesn't get trashed... I have my young son playing on the XBOX and it is possible he or one of his friends could inadvertedly click on a XBL option in a game when I have the mod chip on...

Nope, you'll be fine, all you need blocked is TCP/UDP 3074 and you're xbox wont even be able to connect to live cool.gif You dont need to bother with port 88, as i think you have already noticed and read the above post.
