NAT.... This may be a simple fix for a computer wiz but I am not one. What is the easiest way to change my NAT from moderate to open. We are using an xbox 360 connected by ethernet cable to a Motorola SBG900 router.

YOUR ROUTER CAME WITH FEATURES, LIKE FIREWALL, AND A COUPLE THAT ARE DESIGNATED BY LETTERS, ALL OF THESE ARE NOT OPEN SETTINGS, YOU MUST, RESET YOUR ROUTER BUT NOT THE SAME WAY YOU RESET IT EVERY DAY TO PREVENT HACKERS SLOWDOWN. YOU MUST LEAVE THE UNIT ON TO DO THIS, ROUTER ON THAN PUSH THE RESET BUTTON ON THE BACK OR BOTTOM OF THE ROUTER FOR MORE THAN THREE SECONDS. THIS WILL START THE NEW PASSWORD AND NEW ID PROCESS, REMEMBER TO NOT SELECT ANY OF THE FEATURES OF THE ROUTER. VIRUSES ARE USAULLY BIG PROGRAMS AND CAN'T GET TO YOUR COMPUTE IF YOU HAVE THE INTERNET SPEED LIMITED TO ABOUT 10KB PER SECOND TRANSFER, THATS WHAT THOSE FEATURES DO LIMIT SPEED. THE 360 REQUIRES OVER 1000KB TRANSFER CAPABILITY THAN WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU HAVE 500MB DOWN LOAD 546KB UPLOAD AND LESS THAN 60 PING. YOU CAN FIND WHAT YOU HAVE AT SPEEDTEST.NET CKICK ON THE GOLD STAR AND YOU'LL GET YOU SPEEDS. ONCE YOUR ROUTER IS SET RIGHT AND YOU STILL GET THIS MESSAGE, IGNORE IT IT JUST MEANS YOU HAVE WEEK INTERNET. HAPPY GAMING AND HOPE TO SEE YOU IN GEARS OF WAR TWO...

Helpfull Info

Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.

How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)

Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)

I went on a trip and brought my console and connecetd to a network with a moderate NAT type. When I tried to connect to my original network which usually has an open NAT type it would not switch to open...


Thats odd I know I have a moderate because I'm using a wireless 360 network adapter and my brother has open as he uses a ethernet cable. Also maybe if your bro unhooks his maybe yours will be open and his will go to moderate.

Xbox live does not work properly


nat is quite crazy when it comes to the xbox, their are many ways of changing your nat back to open here is the easiest, on network settings on your xbox change the network from manual to automatic or from automatic to manual if you don't know how to make your network from automatic to manual go get a computer with wirless internet connection, *note the next steps i am about to tell you are for xp if you have vista or windows 7 you might figure out what im doing and use the vista or win7 way to pull up the info if you need to know* go to start, connect to wireless connection, support, details. these are the information you need to know write all of them down then type them in on your xbox but when you get to ip address type everything in but the last number and instead of the writen last number place a number one above it like if the last number was 4 the place 5 but if you test network and that does not work make it 6 ect. then your nat will be open again.

make sure the security settings on router is WEP-Personal. I don't know what you have for internet but Dial-up, DSL, and satellite internet will not get NAT 1.

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

Change NAT to open


You need to open all the ports for the xbox live. The NAT of that router model cannot be configured to open. Its just a simple NAT for internet connection.
