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.

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

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.

Strict NAT?


If you call microsoft, and tell them that your NAT is strict, they will tell you specific ports you will need to forward. (For Free). If you arent sure how to forward ports, call up your routers manuafturer, or send me another message. I have forwarded my ports as well.

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.
