Getting friends to join my party or join theirs

I'm having problems getting people to join my party and joining other parties. My friends either do not receive my requests or they do and they can't join. Party invites and game invites are doing this. I have no connection problems as far as I know. I do not experience lag while playing either so I am very confused as to why this is happening. (I just recently got this internet hook up).

A sequential power cycle is the first step in clearing connection problems, and the order and timing of the steps is important to success:

 

1) turn off the Xbox and unplug the power supply cord from the back of the Xbox then

2) unplug power from the router (Some folks have a combination modem-router AKA 'gateway' or only use a modem with no router. If either, skip steps 3 & 6).

3) unplug power from the modem.

4) Wait at least 5 minutes then replug the modem/gateway power.

5) Wait 'til the light on the front of the modem/gateway which says BROADBAND, ONLINE, READY, CABLE or DSL is on solid (not flashing), then plug in the router. If you have a gateway instead of a modem and router or a modem with no router, then when that light says it's ready, skip to step 7.

6) Wait until the WiFi light on the router is on; you may not use WiFi, but it's still a good indicator your router is finished booting up.

7) Plug in and turn on the Xbox.  For more background on Ports, see whatismyipaddress.com/port

This could just be a problem with your connection at the time, you may have to reset your router to be able to connect to them or they would have to reset to connect to you. I also had this problem where one day I could play with a friend and join their party etc. but the next day I wasn't able to join their party just be sure your NAT type is open.

Do what Vibroplex said to do and if that is not working. Then your wireless network has a moderate or strict nat type. This can be changed by consulting your router's manual or going on your IP Adresses Web Page.
