help setting up xbox live ports?
Im having trouble setting up my xbox to go online. I had no porblems before i switched to orange, but they give you a pretty good router (netgear DGN1000). the problem i am having is forwarding the ports, I have done number 88 and 3074, but it will not let me forward number 53, or number 80, it keeps coming up with 'service port number was defined by another service.' Any help would be brilliant. Thanks

Technically, you ports 53 and 80 aren't required to get an Open NAT, but just recommended. Since you're asking on here though, I'm assuming using just 3074 and 88 didn't open it for you. Your best bet would be to email/call netgear and ask about it.
