    Problems playing with a specific friend


    Me and my friend always play games together but the past month or so have been seeming to have problems playing any game together and it's just him and I that have the issue. I'm able to play with any of my other friends just find but, if he connects before
    I do I cant join and vice versa. The only way we have fixed it is going to each others house and connecting the xbox to the wifi there and it's fixed for a week or two then back to not being able to connect to eachother.

    :)

    the problem is because of the NAT that should be set to open on both consoles, unless either of them has some restriction on the multiplayer side of some game, which they should or should have notified the offender, but I would bet that it is NAT problem

    Hey Run

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently unable to connect to one of your buddies when you play games online.

    It appears that this issue is reproduced whenever you folks are not playing on the same network, which would indicate that a configuration on your network might have changed, as to producing the difficulties with connecting to your
    friend.

    Considering that you had to visit your friends home, and have both of your consoles on the same network to play, I would like to see if its possible to attempt to test a network that is not yours or his to attempt to connect to an online
    session momentarily, purely for testing purposes [this can be done using a mobile hotspot or even an alternative band of network if possible].

    Additionally you can try to use a different MAC address on your console via your

    network settings
    to see if using the physical address [or Wi-Fi address depending on the device you are using] of a device that does not experiencing connectivity issue and see if this yield different results.

    Joining a friends game can be fairly simple and might even reduce latency issues if your on the same network, so if you can test an alternate network, we should be able to identify what the source of this connectivity issue is.
