Hey there, I found some step by step walkthroughs for you. You just need to identify the model # of your safecom

Once you find the model number go to :

scroll down to Safecom, then select your model #. Now select Xbox 360, out of the next list and you will have complete steps to solving your problem!

I do not know how to change my NAT setting to open on Xbox Live

First of all I would just like to cover the basics of strict and moderate NAT settings. For those interested, NAT stands for Network Address Translation and is used to prevent problems with information being sent over a shared network.
With the XBOX 360, Microsoft have defined three categories of NAT. These are:

1. Strict
2. Moderate
3. Open

You can see the NAT level for your XBOX Live connection by going into your
1. System blade
2. Network Settings
3. Test Xbox Live Connection

For you question on how to open your NAT setting follow the steps below:

1. Type the IP address of your router in a web browser.
2. It will prompt you for a user name and password once connected
3. After logging in you will have a control panel of setting up different settings in your router.
4. The IP address, and default user name/password are different on every route
Note: is a pretty common address for most routers.
5. Check the manual that came with your router for that info.

I also provided a few links below of password lists of different routers.

NAT on xbox live is moderate! i need it to be open, for best results. What do i need to do?

You are trying to open the NAT on the router for X-box.
For this you will need to reduce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.
Router set up page is the page where you can change the settings of the router

I can't connect to x-box live. It says my NAT settings are "moderate". How do I change that setting?

You'll just need to do open ports for xbox live. Go to for more information on how to do it.

Halo 3

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.

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.

How to change my NAT

You need to check first if your router is Xbox Live compatible (all routers will work, but only certain ones will allow an open NAT):

If your router IS on the list, make sure you have a compatible firmware version (usually the firmware version is written on the router somewhere). If you do not have the proper firmware, you will need to downgrade your firmware (reply to me for instructions on this).

If your router is not on the list, you're outta luck.

Often its down to the firewall on the router, try playing about with the settings, make sure you remember what they are before you change them.
