It simply means that you'll be able to join fewer games and connect with fewer other players.

To change your NAT type to 'Open', which is what you want, you need to open certaIn ports on your wireless router or your firewall.


IF YOU'RE USING A ROUTER:


Here are a list of ports that you should open.

  • TCP 80
  • UDP 88
  • UDP 3074
  • TCP 3074
  • UDP 53
  • TCP 53
If you need help with opening (or 'forwarding' as it is also known as) use this website:

PortForward.com

If your exact router model isn't listed just use a model which is close because the firmwares are usually quite similar so the instructions won't be too different.


IF YOU AREN'T USING A ROUTER:

Use one of the following guides to help you open ports on your Windows PC:

Windows XP

Windows Vista

Windows 7

I hope this helps, mate.

My nat settings are strict and I don't know how to change them to open?


Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (do not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then press the “Enter” key.
You will get a set up page where you can disable NAT

Ok my nat type is strict and i am trying to change to open


You want the NAT open for X-box ?

For X-box you will need to open some ports on the router.

Also you will need to reduce down the MTU on the router to 1365.
That will work.
for this you will need to open the router set up.

I need to change my nat type from strict to open


This router does not have the typical "strict or open" NAT types. Looking at the manual, it looks like what you want is NAT enabled and SUA only enabled.

Page 133 has the details.

Log into router
go to the NAT tab
Enable NAT
Enable SUA only
Apply the change.

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 http://192.168.1.1 ) but some routers may not have setttings for your NAT.

hope that helps
