Ok, well, I thought I'd got my mate set up on Live (he's in the Pro Evo league - Harbinator) with a wireless router (Netgear WGR614v3) and a bridge (ME101). Both have firmware fully up to date. I have a Linksys router setup (WRT54G) connecting directly to the Xbox. Both setups are returned as Open in the Live diagnostics screen (if you don't know what I mean, have a look here ). We're both on NTL (me 1.5mb him 300K). Now we love a bit of Pro Evo (who doesn't?) and it worked initially and we had a couple of games when he first got set up, but now after him being setup for 6 weeks or so, we both get "No reply received" messages when we try to play. I've tried all kinds of things to get it going, but no luck. Has anyone had a similar problem and solved it? Why can he seem to play anyone and I can, but we can't play each other? Arrgghhh! Has anyone else had problems connecting to either me or Harbinator? Much appreciated if anyone can reply with thoughts. Cheers!
