The ports will need to be opened in your router, you can also try enabling DMZ


Read this microsoft page, it tells you the ports that need to be forwarded on the router
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874


Please read the documentation that came with your router to figure out how to enable port forwarding, if you don't have a hard copy of a user manual, it should be included on a CD and its also available online.

Thank you,
I will fix it!!

you need to open the following ports up on your router
Xbox Live 360 requires you to forward the following ports: 53,80,88,1863,3074.
either open the ports for all devices or give your xbox a static ip and open the ports above for it.

My nat is set to strict and I have done all the port forwarding and open ports nothing works i'm very frustrated.


As you said your NAT is set to "Strict" I assume this is about the Xbox 360.

Put the IP Address of your Xbox 360 in the DMZ on your router. Anything in the DMZ is free of all firewall restrictions and all ports are open to this device. Once you place the Xbox 360 in the DMZ your NAT will be Open.

Thank you for using FixYa!

XBOX 360 strict NAT problem


Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

Change NAT from strict to open


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.

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360


If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Strict NAT?


If you call microsoft, and tell them that your NAT is strict, they will tell you specific ports you will need to forward. (For Free). If you arent sure how to forward ports, call up your routers manuafturer, or send me another message. I have forwarded my ports as well.

Xbox Live (Xbox 360) Strict NAT PROBLEM!


You can hook it up to your computer where the ethernet connection is then plug in your internet through USB and if it still doesn't work then it is most likely a problem with your computer's security at that point. You can also call 1-800-MYXBOX for technical support and every time i have called they have been pretty good and they were also American every time so they were easy to understand.

Nat / strict


First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
