Hi Brengolfter3,

My guess is, the IP to your router is still 192.168.x.x. Only way you are going to be able to get to the router, is to set your machine to a static IP, and then try to get to the router.
This site tells you how set it to static, http://corz.org/comms/hardware/router/static.ip.address.php

The IP you listed is assigned to Easton Utilites, so I have asume it is your internet IP. You might want to check the Xbox troubleshooting for the Xbox, so you don't have to disable your Nat, which is a firewall, by default. Good Luck!

Assign your xbox a static IP address and then create the following forwarding rules to the statice ip address of your xbox.

The following ports must be available to your Xbox 360 console for Xbox LIVE to operate correctly: • TCP 80 • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074 • UDP 53 • TCP 53

NAT IS STRICT


STEPS TO CHANGE NAT SETTINGS TO "OPEN":

1- Using your Browser, Log on to your router (by normally typing in the 192.168.1.1 address check your router's manual to see what the default gateway address)

2- If you already know how to log in to your router, then skip this step. If you have never logged on to your router then more than likely you still have the default initial log in credentials (username: admin - Password:1234 ..... Again check your router's manual to be sure). The minute you log in you need to change that password immediately, most network-savvy folks know that 90% of the people out there never reset their router's initial password and they can log on and make any changes to suit their needs, including locking you out of your own router.

3- Once you are logged in, you should be able to find two advance settings (One if for NAT - and the other is for Upnp)

4- Let's start with the NAT setting changes, and we will move on the Upnp at the end. I have personally tried the NAT setting changes and it didn't fix anything, I still had a "Strict" NAT setting on my xbox360, Only when I checked for the Upnp "allow authorized incoming traffic" options when the NAT settings on my XBOX finally came back as "Open" and not "Strict". But I will still explain what I did anyways with the NAT table cause I know it may work for some other routers.

5- So what I did with the NAT setting is this. I located the NAT advanced setting on my router, I click on the NAT (Edit List setting) or whichever link/button you have on your router advanced NAT settings to access the table needed to open certain ports (TCP and UDP - 88 & 3074) .

6- You will need to find out what the static/dynamic (preferably Static) IP address you xbox360 has. To do so, go to the Dashboard, go to the Console settings page, and click on the network settings to see the IP address (should be something like 192.168.1.x). You will need that IP address to enter into your NAT table on your router.

7- Once you got your XBOX's IP address enter it in the NAT Port Forwarding table (From - To - IP address: those are the 3 fields you should have on the table if you are using SUA NAT)

8 - In the first line enter 88 under both "From" and To" fields, then enter the IP address of the xbox in the field where you are to enter an IP address. (this is for UDP port)

9 - Repeat the same step for port TCP (which is 3074)

10- If these changes do not help open your NAT settings, then try the Upnp option. Click on your Upnp Advances settings and click on the "Allow Traffic" option, this is mostly secure because you are only accepting the incoming traffic that matches your outgoing traffic.

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: 192.168.1.1 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.

How can I play with two xbox at the same time? Right now when both are on xbox live one has a strict NAT and the other is open how do I set up my router so both can play with open NAT?


NAT (Network Address Translation) allows your router to use one IP address with your ISP, but assign internal IP addresses to your devices using DHCP. When you refer to "strict NAT" I have to assume you mean that the device has a static (set) IP. If you want them both to work at the same time, you'll have to set each xbox to accept DHCP addressing (ie., dynamic IP addresses) and make sure your router is set to perform as a DHCP server (which it probably is...that's the default).

Xbox nat setting


If you have a firewall or network hardware, such as a router, you might need to make a configuration change in order for your Xbox 360 console to communicate with Xbox LIVE. This configuration change is sometimes called “opening ports” or "port forwarding."

Xbox LIVE requires the following ports to be open: • TCP 80 • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074 • UDP 53 • TCP 53

XBOX 360 strict NAT problem


Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

Change NAT from strict to open


You need to do port forwarding on your router. First, you must setup a static IP address on your XBOX. Then You must open these ports on your router setup page using Port Forwarding feature. 80 TCP and UDP, 53 TCP and UDP, 3074 TCP and UDP.
