Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
I have a netgear router WGR614V1.5, I have the latest firmware, but
still can't "OPEN" my NAT settings to play xbox live w/ my
buddies...I've tried port forwarding TCP/UDP 3074 and UDP 88; Also
enabling the Upnp, and also the DMZ host. I am using an ethernet cord
connecting the Xbox 360 to my wireless laptop.
Xbox Live with NETGEAR Routers
NETGEAR has Xbox certified routers!
Note that the listed, certified firmware may no longer be available; later firmware is likely to work, but is not certified unless listed.
There is no information on what will be certified in the future. But if an existing model does not appear on the product dropdown on NETGEAR Home Page, then it will not be certified.
If using older routers such as RT311, RT314, RT328, RH348, RP114, or RP334, or if you have problems with connecting to Xbox Live, refer to the Microsoft Xbox Troubleshooting page.

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.

Can I just as what any of this **** means?
We have answers here like "1. Log into the router and under the Setup tab click on "Setup Wizard" "...
...and this means what exactly?
I have spent the best part of two days actually trying to find out how to access the settings on the router - never mind actually CHANGE anything!
I am now taking my wireless attachment thingy back to the shop to swap it for a game and a bloody cable.
Oh, and the NETGEAR router... going in the bin too as soon as someone recommends a decent replacement.

I have a D-Link WBR-1310 Wireless router and I found the way to open my NAT.
I tried everything (DMZ, Port forward etc...) and the only thing that worked was to enable an option called Access Point Mode.
That option changed my router into an access point, completely disabling NAT protocol and the result was the I had an open NAT.

Down load the new firmware and install it in your router.
Use UPnP. If your router supports this. Turn it on. The router will work out the ports it needs to open for Xbox live. If your router does not have this feature, check the manufacturers website for the latest firmware. (also make sure portforwarding and/or DMZ is turned off as they interfere with UPnP)
