    Here is a link to some info from Microsoft that tells you which ports you need to open up.

    If you're asking how to open ports, we need to know what router you have to give you more specific info. This site may be able to help you.

    Good Luck,

    First we need to know what kind of router? All routers are different. Some easier to configure then others. Let us know!

    For an xbox 360 you need yo open up port 3074. TCp and UDP.
