Cant Forward Port 53


Cant Forward Port 53

Ive tried everything, Ive disabled UPNP, Ive disabled media share, I have all 7 other xbox one ports forwarded and my xbox is in a dhcp assigned static ip. when i try to assign udp/tcp port 53 it says Port conflict with other service. but i dont have it assigned anywhere else... im so confused? been on hold with netgear for 60 minutes.

Re: Cant Forward Port 53

Without knowing anything about your environment, run netstat -a from a command prompt and tell us if port TCP/UDP shows as listening anywhere. It's likely the router, which may need a hard reset, but humor us and let us know if you have anything running that is trying to use this port.
