Unable to stay connected to Xbox Live

I just recently bought a new MediaLink MWN-APR150N router and a new XBOX 360.  Everything had been working fine until last weekend when my router was accidentally reset to it's default settings.  I have set up the port fowarding on the router as below, but still I am having very sporadic and painful issues when trying to connect to XBOX Live.

 53-53   192.168.228.140   Both   Enabled checked
 80-80   192.168.228.140   Both   Enabled checked
 88-88   192.168.228.140   Both   Enabled checked
1863-1863 192.168.228.140  Both  Enabled checked
3074-3074 192.168.228.140  Both  Enabled checked

I have manually set my IP address to 192.168.228.140, with a subnet of 255.255.255.0, and a Gateway of 192.168.228.1

 

This will connect fine to XBOX Live when I test, but I also see the below Error Status Report

 W: 0000 - 000B
 X:  0001 - 8005
 Y:  20A8 - 4800
 Z: 0000 - 0000
ID: FFFF - FFFF

I have tried placing my IP Address into DMZ on the router and I am still not having any luck staying connected to Xbox Live.  When I restart the Xbox it will connect right away but then drop me and I am unable to connect again until I restart the machine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hey there Nick!
I can see that you are using both TCP and UDP combined for all forwarding ports. This is more correct:

  • UDP 53
  • TCP 53
  • TCP 80
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074


If you are using Port Forwarding to open ports make sure you disable UPnP and DMZ. These features should always be used separately.

Post back and let us know how it goes.
