    I am very new to the Satori Firmware and all that, so please bear with me if i sound like a total newbie.

    Today I purchased a WRT54G router to replace my old USR one, I replaced it mainly because I was having signal problems with the old one and I had read an article in the inquirer about the Sveasoft firmware. Just to note I got a free Linksys 54Mb PCMCIA card with my router from Maplins.

    I have flashed the router with the satori firmware and everything is working just fine on my PC and laptops, however, XBox live refuses to connect. Are there any settings that I need to change? I have tried changing the MTU size and disabling the firewall, but that has not helped.

    Many thanks,

    It could be you need to open some ports in the firewall, not sure. I don't have an Xbox and really know nothing about them. I'd google for Linksys firewall settings specific to an Xbox.

    Thanks, I had a flash of inspiration and decided to try putting the xbox onto the DMZ, this now works fine. It saves me time looking for specific ports to open up.

    I'm not lazy honest :lol:

    or you can just Enable upnp.

    I don't have that enabled and my live connection works great.. I am only running about 600KB and connecting with no lag..., granted I am the only one on the pipe at that time. Do you have other computers sharing your pipe.. If your connection is too slow it won't connect you.

    Maybe check the loopback option... I remember that messed up my network when I had it checked. Try playing around with that.

    I am basically running the satori firmware as is.. enabling firewall and using static dhcp

    I am not a power user so if this all seems messed up then just ignore

    Hmmm putting it in DMZ is a bit overdone I think.

    I had similar problems and checked out the XBOX requirements for networking and found out that with some fimrware versions you need to specify the MTU size manually (I set it to 1500) and this solved my XBOXlive problem.

    Setting the MTU size to 1500 with my WIFI-BOX firmware has worked like a charm for XBOX live.

    I'd recommend enabling UPNP, thats how I setup my xbox live, I also setup a static DHCP reservation.
