Often its down to the firewall on the router, try playing about with the settings, make sure you remember what they are before you change them.

I have an xbox 360{wireless} set up with live play, and it says the NAT Type is set to Moderate. How do I do that?


have you heard of the expression if it isn't broke dont fix it?

Unless you are having serious issues while playing games dont do anything, the only time that will affect you is if you stream 1080p video through the xbox . In other words if you watch high def movies on your xbox 360

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.

My router is on, and is hooked up to my verizon modem. My xbox 360 and my computer are both hooked up to the router and all the lights are on but only my computer is working for the internet where my 360...


with verizon, you need to set the modem to full bridged mode so that the connection from your modem will be opened. This certain firewall is called NAT. Your modem and your router has this feature. To disable NAT on your modem, you need to set it to full bridged mode. To disable the NAT on your router, you need to open ports on your router.

You need to open this port on the router for Xbox live to work
TCP: 80, 3074, 53



UDP: 88, 3074

forward it to the ip of your Xbox.

this should set the NAT on your xbox to open, not moderate.

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

Change NAT to open


I’m not going to go into too much detail on what your NAT is or why it should be open, but in short, if your NAT isn’t open, you will have a hard time finding games, and it won’t let you join a friends party half of the time. So lets fix this problem.
  1. Go to your computer, and get to Network Connections. To do this, you will click on the start menu, and go to “My Network Places”. Once you get there, click on “view network connections” to the right in the Network tasks box. If your computer is hooked up directly to the router, you will be using the Local Area Network, and if you are wireless, you will be using the Wireless Area Network
  2. Right click on your connection, and then go to “Status.” If you are using XP, click the “Support” tab at the top. If you are running Vista, you will need to click the button that says “Details.”
  3. After you click on “Details” or “Support”, look for and copy down the Default Gateway, and the Subnet Mask. You will need this later.
  4. Close this out, and go to your 360 dashboard. Go to the system blade at the very end of the dashboard, and go to Network settings.
  5. Go down to Edit Settings. Change your IP address settings from Automatic to Manual.
  6. Depending on what your default gateway was, you may have different settings than mine.
  7. For IP Address, enter your default gateway. Instead of one digit for the last number, you will need to change it to something such as 109.
  8. Enter the Subnet Mask(default for most networks is 255.255.255.0) and Default Gateway in the boxes, and press OK.
  9. Now, run a test for Xbox Live. More than likely, you will end up failing the DNS check. This is alright, because we will take care of this in the next step.
  10. Go back to Network Settings, and then change your DNS settings to Manual. For primary DNS server, enter your default gateway.
  11. Run another Xbox Live test, and you should pass everything. However, your NAT will probably still be Strict or Moderate. If it is open, then you are done!
  12. Go back to your computer, and open up your browser. Type your default gateway into the address bar, and press enter. A username/password box should come up. This site has a pretty complete list of routers and passwords.
  13. Once in, look for a link titles “Applications and Gaming” or something along the lines of that. Click it, and then find DMZ. Click it.
  14. Click the “Enable” radio button, and type in the last(4th) octet of your IP(octet1.octet2.octet3.octet4) Save your settings, and exit.
  15. Go back to your 360 dashboard, and run another Xbox Live test. If all went well, you should now have an open NAT! Give yourself a pat on the back, and dance around the room a couple times

NAT from moderate to open (xbox 360)


You need to open ports for that game on your router. Nat can't be disabled, make sure the correct ports are properly forwarded on your router. Contact the game manufacturer for the port listing.

How to change my NAT


You need to check first if your router is Xbox Live compatible (all routers will work, but only certain ones will allow an open NAT):
http://www.xbox.com/en-us/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm

If your router IS on the list, make sure you have a compatible firmware version (usually the firmware version is written on the router somewhere). If you do not have the proper firmware, you will need to downgrade your firmware (reply to me for instructions on this).

If your router is not on the list, you're outta luck.
