Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)

Open Question

How do I keep my router from disconnecting me from xbox live?

I just got an xbox 360 and everytime i play on live, i get disconnected after 30 minutes or so. It's really annoying and I've tried portforwarding, dmz, and upnp(universal plug and play). Not to mention that I did all of these separately to avoid any conflicts with disconnecting. Unfortunately, I still get disconnected with a "network connection lost" error. NAT is enabled. I tried to restore to factory defaults and still no magic. I have a belkin f5d8231-4 v3000 router. Any help would be much appreciated.

I was having troubles with a belkin router as well. i called belkin tech support and they never helped as they would not accept that the router was the problem. i found i could connect the xbox directly to a modem and it would work fine but when i connected it through the router it would always disconnect from games or not allow me to join a game, only host them, with no one else joining. no matter if i forwarded the appropriate ports, put the specific ip address into the dmz or even turn upnp on (i've tried different combos of each, all on at same time, to even setting up manually) and nothing would change. I found that the router had an option to turn off NAT which belkin told me would render the router useless.  I decided to go against them, turned it off and set the ip and dns to go with the modem. Now everything works fine as the router just acts as an expensive multi plug and wireless system. all the computers in the house can connect to the internet at the same time and access eachothers hard drives and i can access xbox live fine with no problems. there is also no lag when playing gtaIV multiplayer with 15 other players.  i hate belkin tech support and i will not pay for another expensive multi plug connector from belkin... ever.

the solution is as such, first log into your router by typing the routers IP (192.168.2.1) into your browser.

The first thing you want to do is set UPnP to be enabled.

Forget about the 88 UDP thing, it's bogus.

Just set the TCP and the UDP to 3074 in virtual server.

I swear to god it will work.

COD server disconnect with wireless adapter


Hi there,

Its to do with your router, every now and again your router settings will turn to strict, as you proberly not usings a xbox compatible router, dont worry not many people do, i dont neither.

All you have to do is just turn off the router for 30secs and turn it back on, this will allow you to play on live again.

Personally if you can, connect it to the routher via a ethernet cable, it provided a much faster connection.

Xbox live stops working


It is a conflict with your router and modem. If you have a WRT54G linksys router and a Ae60 modem then this conflict will happen. To stop it, buy a new modem or router OR connect to XBox LIVE wirelessly using the XBox 360 wireless adapter ($100).

Xbox 360 wireless adapter connection


Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
