    Connection Issues

    Right now, I'm trying to get in my week 2 matchup against the Rams but we are unable to do so. When I accept his invite, I see nothing on my screen then eventually it kicks me off the online franchise servers. Then, when I send the invite to him, the same thing happens to him. We've tried rebooting, removed each other from our friends list, changed status to ready, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    If you are both able to plug directly into your modem then that may help. What ISP do you both have?

    We were able to get it resolved, seems like a direct connect did the trick. Thanks.

    Direct connection or setting up your Xbox in a DMZ permanently works well in these situations.

    What's a DMZ?

    @spliff616 - did you ever change this or will you change it next time you have an issue? It gets rather tedious when it happens a lot and forces you direct into the modem. Going the option of DMZ has resolved all issues for me and gives me fantastic connectivity.

    I kept my connection as is, once the Rams direct connected it solved the issue. So, I wasn't sure if it was on my end or his. If it persists, then I'll look into the DMZ option.
