Xbox in DMZ?

Recommended Posts

Is using a DMZ good? I keep having issues with connectivity to some games (Apex, bf5) and have always had my Xbox in a DMZ. Should I just rely on the xr500 and upnp instead? I have cable internet with 100 down and 5 up.

Having the Xbox in DMZ essentially sends all undirected packets to the Xbox, so I suppose it's possible that the Xbox is being sent too much nonsense data, seems unlikely to me though.

What hardware do you have your XR500 connected to? Could be that the problem is upstream.

Xbox is connected by cable to a network switch and then the xr500. Only the tv is connected to the switch as well. Should I turn off DMZ and test it?

What's above the XR500? Just a modem?

Just a cable modem.
