SOURCE: Change NAT to open

The ports should be opened only in the router not in the, go to a working pc..

To allow traffic from the internet to enter your local network, you will need to open up ports or the router will block the request.

Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port or ports to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure 1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer and then open port 81 to the other computer.

  • Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).

    Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Virtual Server on the left side.

    Step 3 Check Enabled to activate entry.

    Step 4 Enter a name for your virtual server entry.

    Step 5 Next to Private IP, enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to.
  • to check ip in your pc.. go to start menu click run.. type cmd and hit ok
  • in the black window enter ipconfig and hit enter, you will find the ip address

    Step 6 Choose Protocol Type - either TCP, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select both.

    Step 7 Enter the port information next to Private Port and Public Port. The private and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the WAN side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer within your local network.

    Step 8 Enter the Schedule information.

    Step 9 Click Apply and then click Continue.
  • This would fix your problem..

    SOURCE: 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.

    SOURCE: Change NAT to open

    Go to your router admin panel and into advanced settings and set UPnP (Universal Plug'n'Play) to enable. If that doesn't work then manuallyopen the ports on the IP assigned to your Xbox. Opening NAT all the way is never a good thing. it opens you up for attacks. So with the above mentioned solution, either way, you should game on well!! Go forth and frag!!

    If you are not able to connect to Xbox Live because of your DSL connection, you need to contact your DSL provider and ask them to unblock or unrestrict it.

    In general to reset the settings you can go to and that will allow you to log in and change the settings yourself without having the contact the DSL company.

    I want to open my NAT so i can play xbox live

    Okay. If you look at Network connections on Start menu (XP) open network connections...
    Then select the on you are connected to... (LAN or WLAN) Click the support tab and you will see something like ""
    Well type that into your browser, if it ask you for a password the default is normaly "admin" or "1234" (No quotes)
    Temper with the "Gaming" or "Wireless connections" or "port forwarding"
    If that does not work, are you sure you got xbox live gold?
    (or hit the reset button on the back of your router)

    Change NAT to open

    First make sure your security type on the router is WEP-Personal. You may need to get the port range for that game or manufacturer. Then enter them in to the gaming tab. This will keep ports open all the time. NAT 2 is acceptable but you want NAT 1. Some internet connections cannot get NAT1.reply if you need further assistance

    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.

    Cant chat to 1 of my freinds on xbox live

    What is their internet connection speed?

    Your friend may not have port forwarding on their home network and the network router filters the Internet NAT redirection...

    Setting up a DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on the router for the Xbox gives it unrestricted access to the internet; also puts your Xbox outside you routers firewall.

    DMZ ports have to be programmed manually and the IP address also must be manually entered; The DHCP Automatic IP address puts the Xbox back behind the firewall; just duplicate the automatic DNS Server settings and the Netmask. Then choose a IP address outside the Automatic IP range (e.g.

    If that does resolve the issue see if the other Xbox needs a Live Update.

    Halo 3

    make sure your NAT is open, you can check this by running a connection test on your console. there are 3 types of NAT connection. Open, Moderate & Strict.

    Open being the ideal option, strict meaning lots of problems connecting with talking and finding other players on xbox LIVE.

    NAT settings can usually be found on your routers setup / settings page (usually ) but some routers may not have setttings for your NAT.

    hope that helps
