Not sure if you are referring to game console setup or router. If router, go to Portforward dot com. Enter make and model on right side and choose game. Has screen shots.

My netgears nat type needs to be set from moderate to open so i can talk with friends and play games on my xbox 360's live connection

To do this you need to open Ports on the router, called as Port Forwarding
To achieve this you have to open ports 3074 and 88 (TCP/UDP)
Go to Select your router model and you can forward ports on your router with the help of Screenshots on this Website
Hope this helps

Id Like to change my NAT typ from 3 to 2 how I can do this

Hi The first thing I would try is
1.You'll need to portforward, go to and look in the routers for your specific router, then look for the game or service and follow their guide. 2. If the above doesn't work if you cant find your router, you just need to change your Universal Plug and Play UPnP to enabled and your NAT enabled you can do this by logging into your routers admin page and look for them.

Cant connect to others or friends due to NAT settings on forza motorsport 3

you need to forward ports on your router. alternatively many routers have upnp (universal plug and play) to automatically do this and the xbox supports this, but some routers come with upnp disabled by default. i would first go into your router/modem and search for a upnp setting and enable it. if this is not possible or does not work here are some sites to help you with the process of configuring your router.
here is a list of microsoft certified compatible routers, which likely means they have an effective UPNP implementation and have been tested to support multiple xbox's at once.
if you are using telco or cable equipment you may need to contact them or go to the router usually .1 or .254 on your nat range (ex. and see if you can get into it, often times its user pass admin/admin or admin/password or some such default, i would bet googling your equipment model will turn up a way to get into it.

My nat is moderate. how do i fix it to make it more open

You can simply forward ports. I believe you are using XBOX 360. Here are the ports that you need to open

3074 TCP
3074 UDP
88 UDP
80 TCP
53 TCP
53 UDP

You can open those ports using your router's Port Forwarding feature. To know more about portforwarding, you visit
