I’m sorry I spoke too soon. XBOX Live works but I accidently unchecked “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” before I enabled UPnP. I then tried UPnP enabled but checked “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” & the XBOX Live will not work. So I disabled UPnP & unchecked “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” & now XBOX Live works. Will unblocking proxy, VPN & TOR cause me other problems?
When XBOX Live wasn’t working I checked the internet connection on the XBOX & it said “Can’t get a Teredo IP address”. Does TOR stand for Teredo?
Thanks for the update. TOR stands for The Onion Router – one of the tricks to bypass parental control. The “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” box blocks such bypassing techniques. These techniques are usually used from a PC, the possibility of using them on an Xbox is low. Therefore, I would suggest putting XBox in its own profile, uncheck “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” for that profile. Put the PCs in a different profile with “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” checked.
Microsoft recommends turning on UPnP if you have connectivity issues with Xbox. But some people reported that UPnP is not needed for Xbox One. So I gather you have an Xbox One also?
Yes it is an Xbox One & thanks for the brilliant suggestion! We are so happy with our pcWRT router!!! I cannot believe they are not sold in some of the big box electronics retailers. I am shouting your praises to all my friends & family! Thanks again from a very happy mom & dad 🙂
I’m having Xbox internet connection problems too.
I’ve setup the software as suggested but can’t get past the router.
The differences between Collins and mine are;
My sons is a XBox 360
Not sure if this matters but His is Wired, not Wifi.
I’ve only had in my network a few days and my devises, profiles and rules are starting to come together.
Do we register the pcWRT with you anywhere?
John, for Xbox 360, you’ll need to uncheck “Block proxy, VPN, TOR” as well as enable UPnP. Please let us know if that works. If not, let us know what the specific errors/warnings are. Wired or wireless does not matter.
