Help with internet connection with another member Let me run this by you guys. Anyone ever have this type of issue? I've never had a problem connecting to anyone here until about two weeks ago. I got new internet a few weeks ago and they sent me a modem. When I set the modem up I connected everything, reset the wireless router (Linksys) then after I had established a relationship between the router and the modem I went back into the router and re encrypted it but didn't change anything else. As far as I know before I reset the router it was basically already at factory default settings except for the encryption anyway. I then set my network settings in the xbox up for the new network (change the actual network name and entered the encryption code). Everything worked fine for a few days. I played a few unranked games with Dru and someone else (maybe Perry) that next weekend even. Then all of a sudden that same weekend I was in a party chat with Dru, Perry, and Bondzai and Bondzai left. The second he left that party, I got kicked out and couldn't reconnect to it with Dru and Perry in it. I just chalked it up to the servers acting gay. But every time I tried to connect to a party chat after that, or tried to accept a party invite I couldn't connect. It would just say "can't connect to party, there might be network problems" or something to that effect. Then a few nights later I tried to connect to Beazus for a game and we couldn't connect at all. I went back into my router and unchecked the "block anonymous internet requests" button thinking that might have been the cause. The next night we were able to connect no problem, but he also plugged his xbox directly in to his router for that game and we played it no problem. Then the next night I connected with Hokie Effect for a game and it worked no problem. Then the next night I tried to connect to a party chat and was let in, but no one could hear me and I couldn't hear them. Thinking my problem was solved with the network I went and bought a new Mic thinking my mic took a shit on me. I used the new mic and was able to get into a party chat with Twist and Brave, but then as soon as Perry got in I couldn't connect anymore and my mic started coming in and out. As soon as Dru came into that same party I got disconnected and couldn't reconnect. Dru and I tried to play a game that night several times and couldn't connect at all. a. Isn't that the most f*cked up thing? If you notice the major problems happened right after I got my internet installed, and only really with the two guys that were in the initial party chat when I started having my problem. b. WTF? Is there a solution to this? Does anyone that is more technically saavy than I **cough Bondzai **Shaun** cough ** have a good solution to this?
