I think I'm going to do a write up on how to open up your routers. Hopefully I'll have it done by tonight.

Also, with the matchmaking, go into a party, use the same clan tags, and prefer all your friends. That's three ways to help keep everything going smoothly.

On Topic:

Started using Cammando Pro, Lightweight Pro and Marathon Pro with a G18 and P90.

Loads of fun to run around and knife people.

Just gotta get the tactical knife unlocked, I'm only lvl. 24 ATM.

I only really had a matchmaking problem with MW2. Other games, maybe something here and there but not as often.

the thing is, you shouldn't have to go into router or network settings at all to play xbox live flawelessly. If you have a stable 5mbps internet connection or better and a newer router, it should be plug and play unless you want a really secure network.

Before I updated the firmware, I tried everything.

I setup static IP for my Xbox, input all the correst DNS settings as well as opening up all the ports specifically for my Xbox's IP. It wasn't untill I updated the firmware did I get a open connection.

Actually, after I updated my firmware, this is what I had to do.
1.) update firmware and signed on to test connection. Would not connect b/c of blah blah Microsoft says so (DNS and or IP settings might be off).. .
2.) Deleted my DNS settings from manual to auto. Nothing.. . .
3.) Deleted Static IP address settings for Xbox and router.
4.) made sure router was set of DHCP
5.) resent the modem and router
6.) back online and haven't touched anything

I plan on putting the DNS settings back in and also trying the Static IP address again along with port forwarding.

The thing is, I would have a open NAT connection if I had a Xbox live certified router though. Probably wont ever go open with my current router but it's working fine now. none of my computers in the house have wireless N anyway so the upgrade is not needed yet. Maybe if I get forced to move my Xbox into another room I'll have to buy a new router and adapter.. .

It's as if people forgot the Borderlands port-forwarding fiasco and decided just to hate on MW2. It was just as much trouble messing with your network to be able to play online in Borderlands as it seems with MW2.

That has nothing to do with MW2.

You have to port forward, it's a fact. It's not just with MW2. Afro just said Borderlands had the same issues. I run dd-wrt on my WRT-54G and I had to forward the ports, my nat settings were strict. Don't blame the game because a router is tight.

That's what my write up will be about, put the 360 in the DMZ and it wont ever be a problem, with any other game, evar again.

DMZ on your router is dangerous for PCs though, correct?

Well yeah, for a PC. It opens up all 65 thousand-something ports directly into the PC.

But placing your 360 into there isn't an issue. I've done research for it, and it seems to be the standard and there aren't any exploits available that I can find.

I'll show how to do that and also how to forward specific ports to it as well.

cool. Get that writeup going!! I know how to setup the static IP and forward the ports. I'll try it again as it doesn't take long.

then I'll do the DMZ thing if forwarding ports doesn't give open connection.

I think that Firmware upgrade I did might have just opened up some ports that are frequently used which is why I probably don't have party chat problems anymore.

I picked up a set of the Akimbo Model 1887's tonight.

I got 11 kills in Domination before I was brought down. They were pretty epic. Getting double kills is easy-peasy as well.

At what level is the 1887's opened up?

Go to the xbox section if you want help on opening the NAT settings.

OT, does anyone use the FAL?

I've pretty much maxed out the M4 at level 35 so I've been trying to use the FAL, but it's a bit hard. I've unlocked the Grenade Launcher, but I'm hoping it will get better with the red dot sight, because I think it would make an awesome mid-range siper rifle with the Thermal Scope.
