Open NAT with Thomson (Speedtouch) TG585 v7 Router

So I've got my broadband connection set up and Xbox live is working at last. However, when my friends try to party up with me, it doesn't work. Tested connection, points towards a strict NAT. So I need an open NAT and after countless hours searching, I've tried portforwarding and dropping firewalls but to no avail.

It's a Thomson/Spedtouch TG585 v7 router, my PC connects to it wirelessly and my 360 connects by LAN to the PC. PC uses XP.

Any questions/things I've not added that I need to.... just ask!

Thanks

    It's just a matter of turning the NAT settings from "Strict" or "Medium" to "Open". You have the same problem as me on the same modem. I PM an expert on the modem about this problem and waiting to hear back from him. I'll let you know if he solves the problem.

First, try adding a wireless card to the Xbox, run the wireless off of the router OR if you have multiple connections (broadband, should be an "In" port, and several "Out" ports) Try connecting your PC and you Xbox through the "Out" ports, with the cable modem cord hooked into the "In" port...

    On the thomson tgt585 v7 on the configuration screen select custom setup rather then default this enables no NAT (open). Hope this helps.

    Thanks

Change NAT to open


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.

do u have a router and if so u need to make sure these ports are open

If you have not already forwarded ports for your xbox through your router then that may be your problem.

The following ports must be available to your Xbox 360 console for Xbox LIVE to operate correctly:
  • TCP 80
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074
  • UDP 53
  • TCP 53
