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

Goto : my blog for more information about belkin routers (Page is still under construction )
If it is still not working
Open Router setup
At the middle Under internet settings check the WAN IP
IF it starts with 192.168. or 172.16 Then you will have to contact your internet service and ask them to bridge the modem
