Xbox party connect issues

Like everyone else, I am having the same issues when trying to connect with a certain friend in an Xbox party or game. Has ANYONE figured out what the issue is and how to fix it? My NAT settings are open and so are his. Obviously from the reports that the router and modems are not the issues here because after reseting them, the problem still persist. C'mon Xbox, help us out here!

Hmm. I've Had This Problem Sometimes As Well Do You Know If Your Friends Nat Type Is Open. It Could Be An Issue To Where Both You And Your Friends Connection Just Do Not Want To Agree With Each Other.

So if you do get it fixed, basically just cut down on the GTA IV. I know it's a great game, but the system can wear out.

Both of our NATs are open. We've even reset both our modems/routers as well as the Xbox themselves to default settings. Nothing has worked.

To verify that NAT is open, try setting a manual IP address with the information already in the IP settings. Doing this will reveal invisible NATs sometimes.

If possible, try setting up a DMZ or port forward with your xbox's IP/MAC address. Helps clear up a lot of lag and connection issues.
