I assume you know the ip adress of your xbox.

First of all check on your router to see if UPNP is enabled.

Then go to Portforwarding/Port triggering.

Then add custom service

service name: the name of how you call it. doesn't matter really
service type is UDP
start port 88
end port 88
server ip is the adress of your xbox

then apply and make another custom service

name it how you want
service type tcp/udp
start port 3074
end port 3074
server ip adress of you xbox

this should work

Ok in order to help you resolve this issue I need more information. Is this a newly setup router? Did you setup any type of security? WEP OR WPA these are encryption tools that allow only you to get onto your network.

My netgears nat type needs to be set from moderate to open so i can talk with friends and play games on my xbox 360's live connection


To do this you need to open Ports on the router, called as Port Forwarding
To achieve this you have to open ports 3074 and 88 (TCP/UDP)
Go to http://portforward.com/ Select your router model and you can forward ports on your router with the help of Screenshots on this Website

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!

Nat settings on netgear wgr614 wireless router


Hello --

Most NAT settings can be found, on modern routers, under the WAN setup of the router interface. Normally, it is set to Secured with the option of setting it to Open. Click Open and apply changes, giving the router a moment to reset the software and re-broadcast transmissions.

This comes secured for public consumption because the normal consumer would not create a WAN (wide access network) at home. However, gaming consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) require this because of the P2P hosting that most online multiple-player games require. Setting it to Open full-duplexes the transmissions without restriction (since gaming console connections are "supposed" to be secure anyway).

After you've set the NAT settings, restart the gaming console, test the 'net connection and confirm it is reading your now Open NAT settings.
