Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hi my problem is that when i test my xbox live connection, the NAT comes up as strict. i have contacted my service provider [ 3 broadband - USB modem ] they said there is no firewall from them and that they cannot open the ports suggested by xbox technical support! Neither technical suppports have been very helpfull! I have tried myself to open these ports but am not sure if i have done it correctly. The worst thing is that on Saturday and Sunday the NAT was open and i experienced no gaming problems but then yesterday it came back up as strict. Im connecting my xbox 360 to my laptop via an ethernet cable. Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated as i am completely stuck!! Thanks and kind regards
First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
