Helpfull Info

Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.

How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)

Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)

I have a strict nat cant change to open nat


All of the other answers are right but may not fix your problem. Sometimes it is just as simple as rebooting your router and checking connections so first I suggest you disconnect the routers power, unplug all other cords from it and set it aside. Unplug the LAND line from the wall outlet and then securely reinsert it. Now that your router has been disconnected from power for at least 10 seconds, it has already rebooted while you did te other stuff. Now just securely reconnect all cords back into the router leaving the power cord for last. The router should take 30 seconds to 5 minutes to not back up and have connectivity. Check your settings and if it worked, your welcome but if not THEN and only then try going into the setting and opening ports, just know to get there, you will need to know your IP Address. Please let me know if I helped and if you need more help or clarification

NAT


First question is do you know what NAT stands for? It is Network Address Translation. In simple terms, it assigns IP address to your network. Unless you've fooled around the settings should be unchanged.

For the simplest possible solution, try shutting down ALL the equipment. Then boot in this order: the cable/DSL modem, the router, the switch, the Xbox console. Give the modem and router plenty of time (30-40 seconds) before booting the next device.

Come back if this doesn't work.
