Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

High NAT in a dorm where I cannot access the router

I live in a dorm and our building is the only one with wireless. I thought this would be good until I tried to play Halo with my little brother, who got me an xbox solely so we could play together while I was away. I can play matchmaking and the game itself just fine, but I am unable to connect to parties or chat. I even tried downgrading to Halo 2 to use less bandwidth but it STILL won't let me connect to him. I have contacted the university and received a response to the tune of "We don't support video gaming, only education" It's really driving me crazy and I have no idea how I can change my NAT without access to the router.

I cant get an IP adress what i it it says faild


If the X-Box is trying to connect wirelessly to your network, you might need to access the router page and check the wireless settings and make sure that you have the correct encryption or network key, Check the MAC address filtering of the router and make sure that it is disabled or it is off, If you are using a D-link router it is under the Advance tab, Network filter, on the other routers mostly they are under security options, Now after checking those on your router follow the following steps

- Go to the X-Box Dashboard
- Go to Network settings
- If the X-Box is wireless you should have on option for wireless at the bottom of the page
- Select your wireless network and test the X-Box Live
- If it is a wired connections
- Test X-Box Live It should now all connect and confirm the IP, DNS, ICMP
- NAT may show as strict but it should be able to connect to X-Box Live
- If you want to Set the NAT to Open
- Check the IP address of the X-Box by going to Network settings then Edit settings
- Then go to the computer again
- Access the router page
- Go to port forwarding normally located under an advance tab
- Open the ports UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074 (here's one example, http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DIR-655/Xbox_Live_360.htm)
- The IP address field must be filled with the IP address you got from the X-Box

Hopefully this solve's your problem sir
brakke_usaf..Good Luck and Merry Christmas to you and your family..

Xbox 360 live on wireless router


In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.

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.
