I have a linksys wireless router. For some reason linksys routers have a hard time doing 2 live accounts(2 seperate box's) on 1 connection. I know it can be done on some routers. Buck already helped with trying forwarding and i PM'd him about how to do something else he mentioned.

 

However does anyone else do this. If so which router do you use? I may pick up a new router instead of going the getting a second modem option

 

thanks

well today i tried the following and its worked for 15 minutes so far. Besides entering the ports in regular fowarding i also opened up the ports in UPNP forwading to one of the x-box's and set my box to DMZ. So far so food.

 

Any suggestions would still help though

Joey, I use the Linksys wireless B router and have no problems with two accounts connecting to XBL at the same time. One Xbox is hard wired to the router and the other one is connected via an ethernet bridge (Linksys WET11).

 

My problem is not in the connection of two live accounts its actually doing link play that I'm having trouble with. When attempting link play with Halo or Mech Assault, I can see the game to join but I get a connection failure error message when I attempt to join. Very strange.
