Re: How to Open NAT?

Look for a setting like "Virtual DMZ Host". It's hard to tell for sure without knowing the make and model of your router.

My nat type is strict and when i try to play my PS3 i have connection issues. How would i get my nat type to be open?

Zyxel routers don't support Nat 2 confirgurations for the PS3 software. You can fix some issues by powrforwarding the speciffic ports that the PSN uses. To do so follow this ismple guide:

It may vary from game to game so you should choose what speciffic product are you trying to use here:

1- Using your Browser, Log on to your router (by normally typing in the 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.

redu8ce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.
you will also need to open some ports for PS3 on the router.
For this you will need to access the router set up page.
connect a computer to the router. check the IP address on the computer.
according to the default gateway open the router set up page.

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.

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!

Nat type

I have the same router (WRT300N) and this is what I did. I don't know if it will work for more than one Xbox360.

- Go to the Setting of the router.

- Applications & Gaming

- DMZ 
. Enable the DMZ
. Choice the Mac Adress under the Destination.
. If you don't know the Mac Adress of your Xbox360 click on the tab: DHCP CLIENT TABLE
.Now from there choice your Xbox360 ( the Xbox360 won't have a Client Name but hopefully you only have your Xbox360 and your computer)
and now save your setting and restart your Xbox360 and there you go NAT open. This also help if you get any kind of  LAG while someone is on the computer using the internet, your Xbox360 will be high priorty to the router.
