It is usually to access that routers interface. To find out for sure:
1.Click on run
2. type in cmd and hit enter
3.type 'ipconfig' in the black box that popped up
4. the 'Default gateway' is the address that will be used to access the router page.

I would go to to learn how to properly forward the ports for your router.

This should help!

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)

Cant connect to others or friends due to NAT settings on forza motorsport 3

you need to forward ports on your router. alternatively many routers have upnp (universal plug and play) to automatically do this and the xbox supports this, but some routers come with upnp disabled by default. i would first go into your router/modem and search for a upnp setting and enable it. if this is not possible or does not work here are some sites to help you with the process of configuring your router.
here is a list of microsoft certified compatible routers, which likely means they have an effective UPNP implementation and have been tested to support multiple xbox's at once.
if you are using telco or cable equipment you may need to contact them or go to the router usually .1 or .254 on your nat range (ex. and see if you can get into it, often times its user pass admin/admin or admin/password or some such default, i would bet googling your equipment model will turn up a way to get into it.

At any cost do not disable the NAT - because thisis the feature which allows multiple device to work with router

So only option you've got now is to reset the router. It should be at the rear end of the router. Hold onto it for 30 seconds, u'll see the light flash and router reboot

Once you've done with that - configure router and make it work.

And as of for the Xbox Issue try these steps:

1 - Assign a Static IP address in the Xbox:
- Go To Network Settings - Configure Network
- Change IP settings to Manual
- IP Address: Subnet Mask: Gateway:
- DNS settings to Manual
- Primary DNS: Secondary DNS:

2 - with any of the Wired Computers
- open IE - type - - u'll get the Router Interface
- left hand side in the list of options
- click Firewall - leave password blank - disable and apply changes
- click Virtual Servers;
- under enable place a checkmark
- description : Xbox, Inbound Pot : 80(if there are two boxes here duplicate in both the boxes), Type: TCP, Private IP: 45, Private Port: 80
- So Similarly fill up the table for these following Ports
TCP: 80, UDP: 88 Both(TCP&UDP): 53, 3074

Additional Note:

If u've a DSL connection, call ur ISP and make sure ur modem is bridged and the NAT is disabled

I cannot join parties on xbox live

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.

Opening nat

You just need to enable port forwarding for the ports that the xbox live is using, specifically these ports:

UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074

You then assign a the static IP you have set on your router, subnet, gateway and dns on your xbox and that should allow your xbox live to work properly with your router.

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.
