Gears3 Unable to play with friends

I am able to play Gears of War 3 online in random matches but when it comes to accepting or sending out game invites to my friends I get a message saying that the connection to LIVE failed and unable to connect.  What the heck is going on?  Why is it censoring who I can play with?

Could be a router/ISP problem, I have it sometimes even trying to play with my brother at home on the same network, sometimes a router reset solves it, sometimes not. Gonna look at upgrading the sh1*ty router talk-talk gave us I think.

Did this solve your problem?

Hi nememis3001 this generally gets brought up a lot but it all depends on your NAT as well, if you have a strict or moderate NAT or your friends do then this can cause complications when trying to link up. If it turns out you have a strict or moderate NAT type or your friends do then use support.xbox.com/.../nat-type-strict and this guide will show you how to change it.

Thanks and hope you solve the problem
