My NAT is open btw
I have a XBL issue, Just started happening the in the last 2 weeks. I play Call of Duty Black Ops on xbox live... After 3 or 4 matches I get booted from the match or my whole team along with enemy gets booted and i am the last one left then i get a free win because "enemy forfeited"
There is more to this. Sometimes when this happens my internet goes out and i have to power cycle my modem & router, but the weird thing is my internet won't come back on after power cycle unless i shut xbox off. Once xbox has been turned off my internet will work again and i can turn xbox back on and begin playing XBL again.
My Equipment & Connection:
Docsis 3.0 Motorola Modem (SB6121)---When this issue started happening i was using same type of modem but model SB6120- so thinking it might be a modem issue I replaced with a brand new modem but newer model since SB6120 has been discontinued.
D-Link DIR-825 Extreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router-----When this issue started happening i was using my D-Link DGL 4300 extreme gamer lounge router- So thininking it might be a router issue i went and purchased a brand new router. Cnet.com gave my router a great review.
Comcast 20mbit DL / 4mbit UL connection ---- NO throttle or shaping as i can download up to 3.1 mb/s in utorrent. Upload is about 500 kbps in utorrent.
Note: I am connected to my router via Ethernet cord
-I have called my ISP (comcast) and they first suggested it might be my equipment since i am not renting theirs, so that is why i decided to replace my old equipment, got a new modem & router, issue remains regardles, so cannot be equipment.
-My ISP sent a Technician to my home to test the lines, and everything came back GREAT! So not a connection issue with the lines
-Called Activision for COD black ops and they pointed me right back to comcast but did say this internet activity or protocol is P2P and sometimes ISP's will block it thinking they are doing bittorent protocol, however i ruled that out when i tested my DL and UP load speed and was getting constant 3.1 mb/s Dl and 500 kbps ULon my 20mbit/4mbit connection
So if anyone has any suggestions or solutions please let me know. Like i said this didn't happen the last 8-10 months since the game came out, and non of my other xbl friends has this issue...
