None of these answers are solving my real problem. My xbox 360 says I have a strict NAT setting which limits things I can do on xbox live. I have a Zyxel Qwest pk5000z modem, and I have gotten to the NAT...


Technically the best support you could find for this is either going to be on the official game's forums or on the Steampowered forms (even if you didn't buy the game through Steam)
They already have the answers to your questions.

However to give you an idea as to what NAT is and why it shouldn't be affecting you too much:
Network Address Translation is a means of taking your 1 "internet" IP and translating it into potentially hundreds of local IPs (usually the 192.168.x.x range)

Usually NAT is configured on the Router, maybe your modem is also acting as a router.

If you disable it then you're using your actual internet IPs given by your Internet Provider, the problem with that is usually you're limited on how many you have (personally my provider gives me 5 internet IPs so I could have 5 routers and hundreds of computers with just those 5 IPs being handed out using NAT)

I played XBL with strict NAT and never had any problems personally, you may be looking in the wrong area for help with your issue.

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)

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 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.

What is NAT type


NAT is a protocol for networking. Network Address Translation was developed to keep from running out of IP addresses. When your Internet Service Provider gives you service they give you 1 IP address which would only allow one device to be hooked to they internet. NAT allows you to assign private IP addresses to each device in your home and then translates it back to the one address your ISP provided to you. Linksys routers typically have this set by default. Are you plugging your XBOX to your Linksys router or are you using wireless adapter?

My PS3 has no NAT Type!!


there is something known as NAT strict that can happen due to many reasons , NAT or network address translator helps in converting the WAN ip address to LAN side IP address or public to private ipaddress . In a case of NAT strict or no NAT type ur PS3 or the router to which you have connected the PS3 is not able to convert the IP address...
Solution: try logging on to the router manager or PS3 settings and enable the NAT ( it would be in a disabled state or DMZ ( de militarized zone ) state )....
If the nat is already enabled Then try to manually configure NAT by opening the port numbers on the router manager or PS3. Port numbers can of UP or TCP protocol depending upon the games ur tyring to play....
If u donno how u do it then contact sony or the people who gave u the router or ur ISP

Ok this is how its done. Open your DMZ on your router interface click enable. The IP address you'll have to enter the last digit. This IP address digit is found on your xbox, look under your xbox network setting an get the last digit of IP address an this will only set your xbox to open. bang thats how u fix it.
