I tried to find this "Access Point Mode" on the WBR 1310 as suggested above and I couldn't. I spent hours on the phone with support from Xbox, D link, and my ISP Bell Sympatico's technical support trying to get my Strict NAT to Open. I finally got everything working and if you follow the instructions below in order, you will too. Here's what you should know if you have the D Link WBR 1310 and Bell Sympatico Internet.
1. Log into the router and under the Setup tab click on "Setup Wizard" then on the next page click on "Launch Internet Connection Setup Wizard" In step 1 leave the password unchanged and click next. On step 2 select your timezone. On step 3 this is important, select PPPOE setting. On the 4th step leave the Address Mode in Dynamic and enter the Username and password supplied to you by Sympatico.
Once you have configured your Router to work with the PPPOE settings that Bell uses (Most DSL providers use this setting) you should now get a Moderate reading when you do the Network test in the Xbox dashboard.
2. Now go here http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm and follow the instructions to setting up a static IP address on your computer.
3. After setting up a static IP address on your computer, go here http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/WBR-1310/Xbox_Live_360.htm and follow the instructions. Something you should keep in mind which isn't mensioned on this page is for each port you forward under the box that says "IP Address" do not put the IP address of your computer. You put in the new IP address of the Xbox 360 which was one of the 5 that was generated on the previous link. What you are doing is giving the Xbox 360 a new IP address and that new IP address needs to forward these port numbers to the Router.
4. Go into the Xbox dashboard and edit the Network settings. Under Basic Settings click on IP address and set it to manual. Now enter in the new IP address you chose for the Xbox 360. The subnet mask and the gateway is the same as your computer. (You can find these by clicking start, run, type in cmd then when the box comes up type in ipconfig/all
Under the DNS Settings it should be set to automatic and under Additional Settings leave them empty. Run the test in the dashboard and it should now be Open!
Also after reading several forums you don't need to enable DMZ host and leave the UPnP enabled. By default they are set this way anyway. Hope that helps.

you need to check your routers firewall setting by accessing your router through the pc and make sure your plug and play settings are enabled. all can be found on the router setup page. the playstation only requires you to enter the WPSK or WPA wireless encryption key to log on so the problem is usually with the router....hope this helps.

If it's a new router read the book with it and it will tell you how to access the router via internet explorer. Something like this, on the address line of IE enter //192.168.0.1 and type enter. You will need the default login and password from the manual.
