NAT problems do not always lie within the router hardware, sometimes the firmware may require updating, or the router may not be compatible with the Xbox 360.

I Suggest taking these steps to Try to alleviate your Problem:

1) Power Cycle All the devices Connected to your Network

Follow these steps to power cycle your modem and router:
¤ Disconnect the power supply from the modem, and then disconnect the power supply from the
router.
¤ Press the power button to turn off the Xbox console.
¤ Turn off the computer and any other devices that are part of the network. Leave the devices
unplugged and turned off for at least three minutes.
¤ Turn the modem and router back on by connecting their power supplies. Make sure that all lights
on the modem and router are illuminated according to the manufacturer’s specifications. For more
information, see the documentation that was included with the modem and the router.
¤ Turn on the Xbox console, the computer, and any other devices on the network.

2) Test your Xbox Live connection and Check if the NAT is still showing up as Moderate Or Strict.

3) Navigate to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm to Check that your Networking Devices are compatible with Xbox Live and also that they have the Most Up-to-date Firmware !

When i click find game for online game at call of duty the console write that connected with matchmaking server and thats it nothing so i cant play online.


Try doing a factory reset on the modem/router, also do a connection test on your PS3 and make sure that your NAT TYPE is 2 anything other than that will give you problems playing online. Let me know if you need help with getting your PS3 to a NAT TYPE 2.

Halo 3 matchmaking


Your NAT is not allowing people to connect to your server and you cant connect to there servers because of this. The best option is to go to your firewall programs on your computer and allow more things through your router or modem.

Halo 3


make sure your NAT is open, you can check this by running a connection test on your console. there are 3 types of NAT connection. Open, Moderate & Strict.

Open being the ideal option, strict meaning lots of problems connecting with talking and finding other players on xbox LIVE.

NAT settings can usually be found on your routers setup / settings page (usually http://192.168.1.1 ) but some routers may not have setttings for your NAT.

hope that helps
