Open or forward ports on the router for your Xbox. Get the ports from Xbox live then configure the router to allow those ports to pass.

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

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360

If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 NAT is strict

In order to make it open, Call xbox live customer support (1-800-4MY-XBOX) and ask them for the information necessary to solve your issue. They will give you information to be entered into your router's settings. Call your router company for assistance, or go to your router's setup. Go to Applications and Gaming. There should be a link for Port Range Forwarding. Enter the information given into the areas given. Save and powercycle all of the equipmant.
