Its likely your router needs to have port forwarding setup on it, or you could try setting up your Xbox ip address as a DMZ on your router.

however some routers simply wont work, I had a voyager 105 using port forwarding but it still never worked till i changed to a Draytek

post more details of your router and what you have tried.

My nat settings for my xbox 360 is set to strict, I am connected to xbox live from my laptop, my laptop is connected to my linksys router, how do i change my nat settings to open if my connection is set up...


You'll need to log into the linksys router and find the setting for UPNP. Please make sure this is enabled. That should allow your NAT setting to at least Moderate, if not Open.

I cant hear people talking on my ax 180s but my mic doesnt work i have 360 help


ou should check your NAT type [the think that lets you connect, talk, hear, and play with people on Xbox Live]

Go to the Xbox Dashboard, Network Settings and Test Xbox Live Connection.

In the bottom of the tests, it will say your NAT Type

Strict= Bad
Moderate= Sucky
Open= Works Fine

If its Open, then you know thats not the problem.

If its Strict/Moderate, go to More Info and they will tell you more about it and give you a website that will help you out. Source(s): Experience

P.S. [That website that will help you out]

www.xbox.com/setup

P.S.S. Have you checked the batteries? Sometimes when the battery of a wireless is low, it won't allow you to speak

How do I hook up to Xbox Live with VZAccess MiFi 2200


I can connect using mifi2200 and play as long as I want. However I do receive the message about NAT. Says mine is set to moderate. I have no idea how to change it to Open. I did have a regular usb modem and was connecting using it. My main problem is I cannot party up with friends on xbox live because my NAT is not OPEN. But for an answer just set up and internet connection sharing through your mifi and you will be able to connect to xbox live.
