Hi,
as far as the game works perfectly online, i dont think you should worry...
the reason you got that message could mean that it assumes you have NAT enabled..!!
so chill and game on..!!!

My xbox 360 says im connected to xbox live checked network setings and it says xb ox live is up and running...however when i try to play need for speed online..it says xbox live not working functionally?...


Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings." Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.) Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

Microsoft mn 100 router will not connect nor will it allow me to go into management tool. It worked up until today, I use it to run xbox 360 online. I kept getting alert about my nat was at moderate and...


You might try re-setting MN-100 router back to the default setting. Do this by ... look in the back, there is a small hole at one of the ends. I have mine standing up and the (small) hole is at the top. Which you can use a straighten out paper clip and lightly push it in the hole to re-set. The trick to it - is that you have to hold it for a little bit of time. I'm not sure what the time figure is, 5 or 10 seconds something like that ... but the lights on the front will start to blink. Look in you manual, it will show you where the hole is.

Can't pick up wireless internet through router


You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.

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!
