Optimizing WGR614(v1) for xbox live

Xbox live says your router NAT status should be 'open' for best performance. Mine shows moderate, and I think it's messing w/ my ability to play online. Several places say port forwarding is an option, and say that the 3 ports Xbox live wants are ? UDP 88 ? UDP 3074 ? TCP 3074. I figured out how to do port forwading on the router, but don't see where it lets me choose UDP or that an issue, or should I just create two new custom ports--one at 88, and the other at 3074?

Re: Optimizing WGR614(v1) for xbox live

The normal port that requires opening in your router for xbox is TCP3074, you should just type the number in as if there are no options, although there should be, it may know that 3074 is a TCP port.

How do i get NAT OPEN

To get the NAT open, you have to forward specific ports. If you are doing this for xbox live, then call microsoft and ask for an "agent."

With that information, You go to your router's setup, and look for port fange forwarding. Enter the information given and save it.
