I have a DSL modem with wireless capabilities and a wireless access point that I use to play xbox games and playstation 2 games online with. On some games, I get a message saying that my internet firewall that is in place is blocking me from participating in that games online feature. If anyone has had experience with this kind of problem or knows what I need to do I sure would appreciate the help.

Here is a list of my current firewall settings:

these are disabled: Stealth mode, block ping, Strict UDP Session Control

Inbound and Outbound Control:
Only NetBIOS are prevented from inbound or outbound

Attack Detection:

these are detected:

Excessive Session Detection,
Invalid Source/Destination IP address
Packet Flood (SYN/UDP/ICMP/Other)
Invalid TCP Flag Attacks (NULL/XMAS/Other)
Invalid ICMP Detection

this is not detected:

What is giving those errors? Both consoles?

What is acting as your firewall? The modem or the access point?

You would recieve that message if your firewall is blocking a port that that game requires. Find out the ports you need to access this game, then visit http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm and select your router model, and then follow the instructions provided on how to open ports.
