Help with Port Triggering

Message 1 of 7
(1,955 Views)

Okay, I have look around for many guide but I can't seem to get the port trigginger to work my Wireless N Router. I have 2 xbox 360s in the house so I'm not able to use port forwarding. I've tried to do port triggering on my own but every guide is to a none verizion type router. Nothing in the guides match the interface I'm giving with. I dont' know what I'm suppose to do. Please, does anyone know how to port trigger for the xbox live with a verizon router?

Try just simply enabling upnp in the router interface.

I have tried that, but only of the 360 get's an Open NAT, the other get's a Moderate NAT. I was told to use Port Triggering so that both my 360 could get an Open NAT. Could someone please tell how to set up a Port Triggering for Xbox Live?

This did not work. I have tried this method over and over but it doesn't work. Please give me a working method and NOT something you just pulled from the internet that doesn't work. 

 

Again, I am trying to get port triggering to work so I can use my 2 xbox with open NAT. Thank you.

  • Port forwarding works for the Actiontec and XBOX, thousands of people use it
  • Port Triggering works for the actiontec and XBOX, a lot of people use it
  • And UpNP is the preferred method for connecting multiple gaming systems. tons of people use it

 

IF it's not working for you, then you need to investigate other possibilities, or reach out to actiontec direct via their contact form, since verizon doesn't do any port forwarding assistance.

 

Contact Support - Actiontec

 

 

 

Actiontec doesn't talk to verizon customers over the phone

Verizon doesn't support xbox over the phone

So you have to use actiontec's contact form above.
