Troubleshooting a gaming console.
- Be certain the gaming device is registered on your account.
- Reset your gaming device console. If your game freezes while playing, or if you get some other miscellaneous error, your first step should be to give your console a hard reset. Power the device down normally if you can, then completely disconnect it from the power supply. Wait a minute or two, then reconnect the device.
- Check the cables.
Take a moment to make sure cables are securely plugged in, and in the right places. If you’re having difficulty with one HDMI outlet on your TV, try using a different one. If you have extra cables, you can try swapping them out to make sure the problem isn’t with the cable itself.
- Ventilate the space. Electronic devices get hot when in use, and your video game system is no different. Make sure you place your console in a well-ventilated area, and make sure any air intake area on the console is free and clear of obstruction. If
- Stay up to date. Modern video game consoles need to connect to the Internet to keep their firmware up to date. Take a responsible approach to keeping your gaming device up-to-date with firmware.
NAT Type Issues
If you are experiencing issues with hosting or joining games, or using voice chat features with your console, it may be due to your NAT type. If you are on a strict or moderate NAT type, you may not be able to utilize all functions with online gaming. If this happens, make sure you are not connecting your console to a personal router. You should connect your console directly to your property's WiFi network, or the Ethernet wall jack in your unit. If this still does not help your NAT type issue, please contact Elauwit Support for further assistance.
