Online Gaming help

Can’t get any games going with someone who lives in the same city. Happens with both SFIV and HD Remix. What could we both try to fix this?

Are you all behind firewalls / routers? That can sometimes be the problem.

Ideally your gaming system is in front of your router, and then you run a repeater into your firewall/router, which goes to your PCs. That way your PCs are protected but your xbox360 doesn’t have a router blocking incoming connecting players.

OK thanks. We both have Ethernet cables connected to our xbox’s to routers. Will port forwarding maybe help?
