I had this issue, and solved it recently. Everyone on the internet will tell you to forward ports, or disable the NAT setting, but these never worked for me. As I was about to give up and buy a new router, as a last resort I decided to call tech support. In about 3 minutes they fixed my problem, and it is much easier then port forwarding.

-First go into your 360 network settings and find its mac address.
-In the router settings move to the LAN tab.
-Then go to "dhcp leases".
-Under "current dhcp leases" your 360 should be listed (match the mac address)
-Make a note of the IP address listed for the 360, then delete that lease.
-Now Reserve a new IP address, enter in the MAC address and IP address you wrote down for the 360.
-Check the bypass firewall option (and give it a name if you want) and then add the new entry.
-On the same page, move up to "DMZ Host" find your new entry and click "apply"
-Click the option to reboot your SBG900, then restart your 360, and the NAT should be open.

I hope this helps, if I described it correctly it should be much easier then port forwarding, and more importantly, it should work.

Im not sire what your trying to open it for but try this website it gives you step by step directions. I opened my nat specifically for x box live. This may work for you if you habe the port ending and port begining numbers. This is safer than just having open NAT.

You have to change it in your router setup page. Go to a web browser and type 192.168.1.1 (default)

SOURCE: How do i change my NAT type to open for Xbox Live

Hi

Thank you for your query

It is not the NAT type you need to open

This is one of a 1 or 2 step process

1) Ensure that the port you are using for your Xbox is open on any internal firewall you may have installes e.g. zonealarm etc

2) Log onto your modem router, there will be a option for gaming DMZ, in this selection ensure you open the apprpriate port for the Xbox

3) Enjoy :)

Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

You need to do port forwarding on your router. First, you must setup a static IP address on your XBOX. Then You must open these ports on your router setup page using Port Forwarding feature. 80 TCP and UDP, 53 TCP and UDP, 3074 TCP and UDP.

Change NAT to open


First make sure your security type on the router is WEP-Personal. You may need to get the port range for that game or manufacturer. Then enter them in to the gaming tab. This will keep ports open all the time. NAT 2 is acceptable but you want NAT 1. Some internet connections cannot get NAT1.reply if you need further assistance

This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

You need to open all the ports for the xbox live. The NAT of that router model cannot be configured to open. Its just a simple NAT for internet connection.
