I need to change the NAT settings on my router so i can game more openly, how do i do that?

The NAT settings are in the game (console) it self, NOT in the router... The NAT term for a router is Network Address Translation... I don't know who had the bright idea to use the term NAT for game settings but he was an IDIOT... I think the term NAT in the gaming world is for controlling user access nothing to do with Network Address Translation of a router.... your router uses NAT to Translate IP addressing from the WAN side to the LAN side (OK this might be to technical for you) but in other words it is what the router uses to Translate the traffic from the WEB to your HOME NETWORK... nothing to do with gaming what so ever...

1- Using your Browser, Log on to your router (by normally typing in the address check your router's manual to see what the default gateway address)

2- If you already know how to log in to your router, then skip this step. If you have never logged on to your router then more than likely you still have the default initial log in credentials (username: admin - Password:1234 ..... Again check your router's manual to be sure). The minute you log in you need to change that password immediately, most network-savvy folks know that 90% of the people out there never reset their router's initial password and they can log on and make any changes to suit their needs, including locking you out of your own router.

3- Once you are logged in, you should be able to find two advance settings (One if for NAT - and the other is for Upnp)

4- Let's start with the NAT setting changes, and we will move on the Upnp at the end. I have personally tried the NAT setting changes and it didn't fix anything, I still had a "Strict" NAT setting on my xbox360, Only when I checked for the Upnp "allow authorized incoming traffic" options when the NAT settings on my XBOX finally came back as "Open" and not "Strict". But I will still explain what I did anyways with the NAT table cause I know it may work for some other routers.

5- So what I did with the NAT setting is this. I located the NAT advanced setting on my router, I click on the NAT (Edit List setting) or whichever link/button you have on your router advanced NAT settings to access the table needed to open certain ports (TCP and UDP - 88 & 3074) .

6- You will need to find out what the static/dynamic (preferably Static) IP address you xbox360 has. To do so, go to the Dashboard, go to the Console settings page, and click on the network settings to see the IP address (should be something like 192.168.1.x). You will need that IP address to enter into your NAT table on your router.

7- Once you got your XBOX's IP address enter it in the NAT Port Forwarding table (From - To - IP address: those are the 3 fields you should have on the table if you are using SUA NAT)

8 - In the first line enter 88 under both "From" and To" fields, then enter the IP address of the xbox in the field where you are to enter an IP address. (this is for UDP port)

9 - Repeat the same step for port TCP (which is 3074)

10- If these changes do not help open your NAT settings, then try the Upnp option. Click on your Upnp Advances settings and click on the "Allow Traffic" option, this is mostly secure because you are only accepting the incoming traffic that matches your outgoing traffic.

I do not know how to change my NAT setting to open on Xbox Live

First of all I would just like to cover the basics of strict and moderate NAT settings. For those interested, NAT stands for Network Address Translation and is used to prevent problems with information being sent over a shared network.
With the XBOX 360, Microsoft have defined three categories of NAT. These are:

1. Strict
2. Moderate
3. Open

You can see the NAT level for your XBOX Live connection by going into your
1. System blade
2. Network Settings
3. Test Xbox Live Connection

For you question on how to open your NAT setting follow the steps below:

1. Type the IP address of your router in a web browser.
2. It will prompt you for a user name and password once connected
3. After logging in you will have a control panel of setting up different settings in your router.
4. The IP address, and default user name/password are different on every route
Note: is a pretty common address for most routers.
5. Check the manual that came with your router for that info.

I also provided a few links below of password lists of different routers.

I want to open my NAT my i have the GT701WG model tell me what ports to open

Log into your router. Under "WAN setup" or similar you should see "NAT filtering" or similar. Check the box next to "open". Be advised that opening NAT exposes your network to the Internet. Better to find out which specific port is needed for your application and stipulate that under "port triggering" or port forwarding.

I have a PK5000Z from Qwest, and an XBOX360, I had an issue previously with a PK5000 made by Actiontec, with NAT issues, set to moderate, it doesnt let me hear all players in a xbox live party chat, or in...

try turnig off all restrictions related. like , S.P.I. (statefull packet inspection) and try setting firewall setting for the address of the Xbox to "DMZ" . check setting of M.T.U. in router, adjust it to 1580

Good luck.

My router is limiting my network traffic

You router have limited NAT table size and if you use P2P this will slow down your network traffic for sure. The second reason is ports not forwarded and outbound connections cannot reach your PC. To solve both problems, download and install Router Commander that unleashes NAT table and forward ports automatically.

Can't get NAT setting to Open for xbox 360. Won't connect to other users with open setting

The NAT is set to the actiontec modem/router so the next troubleshooting is to open the ports of the XBox ports 80, 3074, 53 TCP and 88, 3074, 53 UDP. To allow the XBox on the network using your modem/router.

How to have NAT open on EDimax router BR-6216mg

The router of course allows you to forward ports to different IP’s. It does not have any pre-configured application ports to choose from though. It also supports Virtual Server so you can set up a server inside the network and direct the traffic from outside to it.Some applications require multiple connections to work.When you log into the router(it uses web interface)it gives you an option which says NAT.On this screen you can set up a trigger port for an application which will open up a range of ports for the application. Edimax has included a list of popular applications (games and applications) which can be selected. If the game or application you are using is not included you have to find out yourself which ports to open.

Actiontec wireless router

This is a Wireless Gateway not a router. Although the Actiontec website says that it uses NAT firewall like a router would.

If you do not get any green lights this usually means the wireless gateway is broken. Try plugging it into power but not the modem. Wait a few seconds. Are there any green lights?

If so, then the gateway is not configured correctly to work with your modem. You may have a smart modem. Call your ISP, for help.

If not, then it is probably a bad gateway. You can try to connect to the configuration web page that comes with the gateway. OR Power on the unit while holding down the Reset button for a minute. This will reset it to factory defaults.
