How to open NAT for xbox 360

To open your NAT for your xbox 360, you will first need to access your router. To do so, type your router's IP address into your address bar.
if done so correctly, a pop-up will prompt you for a username and password. ex: Linksys router- 192.168.1.1. your username and password should both be "admin", if you hadn't previously set them. you will now need to go to port triggering/forwarding and type the following: 87 to 89 and select UDP for type and enable. next slot: 3073 to 3075 and select TCP and enable. do the exact same for row three as you did for row 2. then go to your DNZ settings and select open, or enable; whichever option it gives you. ... Once you have done this disable any firewalls on your computer and your NAT type should have been changed to "OPEN". thanks for reading and good luck!

Hi,

You can open the NAT settings of you router by accessing the router page. And by following the steps below.

1. Connect Modem - Router - Computer (Wired)
2. Open Router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of your browser
3. Leave the Password blank and click submit
4. Scan and connect in the Xbox
5. Get the IP Address of the Xbox
6. On the left under Firewall Click DMZ
7. Enable the IP Address of the Xbox/PS3/Wii in it
8. On the left Under Utilities click System settings
9 Enable UPnP then check the connection.

Set NAT to open for Xbox only, not computers


This is entirely not the issue for NAT setting's . In this case we have to open the port numbers on the router to get the successful connection test.
The port numbers will be given by the Microsoft support services . Once we have the port numbers and the Ip of the Xbox following steps can be taken to enter the given numbers:-
1)Open the router gui with 192.168.1.1 or http://routerlogin.net by typing it in the address bar for the user name as admin and password as the word password only.
2)On the Netgear smart wizard .left hand side you will find a small blue/purple column with different categories , look for the one that says advanced and click on port forwarding/port triggering and select port forwarding from there and click on Add custom service from the bottom .
3)A new screen will appear which will have the following options:-
Service name:-
Service type:-tcp , udp , tcp/udp
Starting port:-
Ending Port:-
Server Ip Address:-(enter the value in range) and apply the setting's.
The value for the starting and ending port will be same i.e if suppose we have a port no. 80 for the ip:-192.168.1.15 and tcp as the service to open then this is how it will be done:-
Service name:-abc
Service type:-tcp
Starting port:-80
Ending Port:-80
Server Ip Address:-192.168.1.15

Go for the connection test after forwarding all the port numbers.

N.A.T Settings


So you want the public IP address that your Netopia router is getting to do a 1 to 1 NAT to the private IP address 192.168.1.136? Basically you want to bypass any of the firewall restrictions of the router?

The caveat with this configuration is that if you don't have any other public IP addresses for the actual Netopia router to use then all other devices on your network will now longer be able to access the internet through the router. Only if you have a public IP address that you can assign the router will it be able provide NAT and internet access to the rest of your network.

The 192.168.1.0 network is not routable on the public network. You need your entire network to NAT through your router using a public IP address.

You configuration will work if the Netopia router will allow a 1 to 1 NAT to another node on the network and allow NAT'ing for the rest of your private network concurrently. Of course you need at least (2) public IP addresses in the same subnet as well.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need better clarification.

Can not access my ip address in order to change NAT settings


Hi Brengolfter3,

My guess is, the IP to your router is still 192.168.x.x. Only way you are going to be able to get to the router, is to set your machine to a static IP, and then try to get to the router.
This site tells you how set it to static, http://corz.org/comms/hardware/router/static.ip.address.php

The IP you listed is assigned to Easton Utilites, so I have asume it is your internet IP. You might want to check the Xbox troubleshooting for the Xbox, so you don't have to disable your Nat, which is a firewall, by default. Good Luck!
