Xbox 360, Motorola 2210, and Netgear WGR614 I am having issues with NAT settings on XBOX live not allowing me to play with and chat with certain people.
I gathered that I need to forward a few ports, but also read that to do so I need to set my modem into bridge mode.
I researched online and found out how to set it into bridge mode, but when I do I no longer can connect to the internet. I called AT&T and they wanted me to buy some home networking service. (As unhappy as I am with AT&T DSL I refuse to to give them any more money than I have to. Ever since I got rid of Charter Cable I have HATED DSL! I am moving soon and will NEVER have DSL again!)
What I want to do, once and for all, is to set my network up to properly work with XBOX Live.

Make sure to flash your Netgear router to the latest firmware version. Make sure to use the right firmware update for the hardware version of your Netgear router. »kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614.asp

I would not give them anymore of my money either as they are charging too much now, look at Texas pricing in comparison to the southeast pricing for the same services, THEY ARE SCREWING EVERYONE. »www.att.com/gen/general?pid=6431

1) netgear really sucks, their routers are a joke and the majority of the time simply loose the settings you program into them - or they never program them in the first place. replace that POS
2) a 10 second google, microsoft, or xbox live search all reveal to you that you need to setup your xbox ith a static IP, then forward all ports associated with xbox live
My Netgear routers running DD-WRT firmware work just as well as Linksys running the same firmware. IMHO Belkin is the #1 worst router and D-Link #2 worst router.
With that said you need to bridge the modem, set the router for PPPoE and then enable UPnP in the router. No need for the mess that is setting a static IP address and manually forwarding ports. If the xbox needs a port forwarded let it handle itself.
