    Ok, so I do not know how or when it happened, but when I tried hopping into a party with Darr today I couldn't. A couple of nights ago I wasnt having any problems at all - and the weather is still pretty nice out here so I figured it wasn't bad reception from the satellite.

    I still tested my XBL connection though, and it was saying my NAT settings had switched over to moderate. Now, im pretty computer stupid, but after looking up and trying all the solutions XBL online had - I am still unable to hop in a party or communicate with other users.

    UPnP is enabled
    the 4 ports that need to be open are open
    I've reset my modem and router a couple of different occasions

    any help would be appreciated.

    Cheez maybe it was Darr's connection that you cant connect to? Have you had any trouble connecting to your games with other users? Did you try a threesome?:cool: Oh wait thats kinda off subject!

    Cougs link is what I used on once upon a time , if you still have trouble your net provider might be able to help, my friend is a network tech for Time Warner cable and he says try help cuts win that issue a lot.

    There are days when I can't connect as well, technology is tough to figure out some times

    Sometimes it can just be an issue between you and someone else in the party besides Darr. For example, to this day, Papa Perry and Beazus Christ from T3 can't get in a party if the other invites them, but they can be in a party together if a 3rd person sends the invites.

    As Cougs said, tech is weird.

    Joe says DMZ. Also make sure your local IP is correct for your xbox and your port forward/dmz, some routers like to change them.

    im not gonna lie... that's pretty much greek. Part of the reason I am having problems is because i'm struggling with the lingo.

    But like i said, it was working again last night, so who knows.
