Problems With Joining Games?
Posted 06 March 2004 - 05:46 PM
Sometimes a friend of mine is playing in that session and I know for sure that it's active but when I try to join I get the error that it's gone. I also got this with other games not just with MotoGP.
Could this have anything to do with the fact that I now have a new EEPROM? Didn't used much xbox live before last week so can't really tell if this is a new problem since last week or not. Atleast the few times that I played xbox live before last week I never had any problems with it.

|How do other games work?|
Well also got this problem with PGR2 and TopSpin, but I never noticed as much before I got another EEPROM so I'm wondering if that could have anything to do with it.

Opening the three ports (UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074) is not necessary for Xbox Live to work properly
Most cable/DSL routers implement Network Address Translation (NAT), as does Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). For NAT devices, no port forwarding is required for Xbox Live to work. Port forwarding is required only if you are running a proxy server or true firewall instead of or in addition to a NAT.
believe it or not, but certain linksys, D-link, and M$ routers are the culprit.
Some are compatible, others are not.
it seems they need a simple firmware update, I have the Linksys BEFSR41 (v3), and kept getting the same issues in counter-strike, then got the firmware update and all is good!

I did a firmware upgrade yesterday so who knows that might help but I didn't had any time yet to test it out.

so my point is that just because its not on the list, like my 714, it doesnt mean it wont work, but if it says that it jus doesnt work, then u got a problem....
