View Full Version : xbox live question

So instead of buying an expensive wireless adapter, Im fishing cat 5 wire through the walls in my house. Im not quite done but I wanted to know if it was still necessary to open ports for full functional online play even with the xbox directly connected to the router. _mk_

It depends on if you have UPnP enabled (if you even have it) on your router I think.

If not then enable it and you should be fine, if you don't have UPnP at all then you need to open ports.

Don't forget depending on the router you may need to set the trasmit rates as well.
