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!

Re: Open NAT with Thomson (Speedtouch) TG585 v7 Router
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...

with verizon, you need to set the modem to full bridged mode so that the connection from your modem will be opened. This certain firewall is called NAT. Your modem and your router has this feature. To disable NAT on your modem, you need to set it to full bridged mode. To disable the NAT on your router, you need to open ports on your router.
You need to open this port on the router for Xbox live to work
TCP: 80, 3074, 53
UDP: 88, 3074
forward it to the ip of your Xbox.
this should set the NAT on your xbox to open, not moderate.
nat is quite crazy when it comes to the xbox, their are many ways of changing your nat back to open here is the easiest, on network settings on your xbox change the network from manual to automatic or from automatic to manual if you don't know how to make your network from automatic to manual go get a computer with wirless internet connection, *note the next steps i am about to tell you are for xp if you have vista or windows 7 you might figure out what im doing and use the vista or win7 way to pull up the info if you need to know* go to start, connect to wireless connection, support, details. these are the information you need to know write all of them down then type them in on your xbox but when you get to ip address type everything in but the last number and instead of the writen last number place a number one above it like if the last number was 4 the place 5 but if you test network and that does not work make it 6 ect. then your nat will be open again.
