Xbox Series X - Network Ports

My son has a series X and can’t use it on our WiFi. He contacted Microsoft who said we need to contact our Internet Provider to have a list of ports opened??? Has anyone else experienced this?

From XBox Live Support - These ports must be open for Xbox Live to work:
  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)
  • Port 500 (UDP)
  • Port 3544 (UDP)
  • Port 4500 (UDP)

You will need to setup Port Forwarding on the Hub and assign the XBox a Reserved DHCP IP address.

Re: Xbox Series X - Network Ports

Forgive my ignorance here - is this something we can do from home (and how?) or do I need to contact Virgin?

thank you, I appreciate your help!

Re: Xbox Series X - Network Ports

just an heads up you shouldn't need to port forward anything.

When you visit the network tab in settings and visit "connect to wifi" you should see both of your Wifi bands to connect to.

if not you may need to reboot your vm hub. or split/rename your wifi band names on the vm hub.
