I have an open NAT and can connect to most people but still can not connect to one of my friends. Every now and them I am able to connect to him randomly but this is rare. I can be in parties with him if there is someone else in there that we can both connect to. I have all my ports forwarded to my xbox and made its IP a DMZ. What can i do to fix this?
Using portforwarding and a DMZ at the same time can cause a conflict so I would turn one of those of (and UPnP if its enabled) because that can certainly cause confusion
If you still have issues after doing that please read:- forums.xbox.com/.../811997.aspx
And post back your details in full (the bits that are in bold on that post) so that people may help
If you are wireless can you also state whether you are using the white or black external adapter or the Xbox 360S Internal adapter

Despite your NAT saying its Open its very likely that isn't the case (unless you have bridged the Speedstream in the past) here you go this should resolve your problem:-
A small question. When you can speak to your friend, is that when you guys are with the 2 of you? Then you could be thinking of that it's his NAT whats not open...
Something is easier then nothing!
Could be your friends problem if your open and they aint, i had that problem alot with friends. Try and find out if they are set to open or not.
I have a question what could cause this issue if both me and my friend have a open nat type and still can't join each others live party and game
captin, there are a few reasons, one could be that one of you doesn't have an Open NAT despite what is being reported, another could be if you are using the same ISP, some ISP's can have this problem
Hey guys, I am having the exact same issues as the OP. I have one friend that I cannot connect to (not even an xbox live party), but we can join a third persons party and we will then be able to play with each other. As soon as the third person leaves our party, then the game and party chat boot us both.
We both seem to have open NAT, and I am currently trying to see if it is a problem on my end or his. Apparently I am the only person he has this problem with, and he is the only person I have this problem with.
I will include my network connection stats below.
I live in Texas, USA
Modem: Not sure what my modem is... possibly an Ambit model no. U10C018
