How to unmute yourself on xbox 360


Hi there I can sort understand what you mean and I think this is the answer. If you cannot be heard normally in chat when online even though your mic is turned on or you have made sure that in preferences, you went in to audio settings and made sure you were not on mute? My guess is your having issues with your NAT settings as this can affect you chat settings when online. For example, xheck your NAT status and if it is MODERATE or STRICT then this is why. If you NAT is OPEN then it is because the players you are playing with have a NAT issue. MODERATE and STRICT NAT's will limit what you can do online, including chatting.
Hope this answers your question :)

I went on a trip and connected to a network with a moderate NAT type. When I got home I tried to connect back to my original network which is usually open and it didn't switch back to open. I connect using...

I went on a trip and brought my console and connecetd to a network with a moderate NAT type. When I tried to connect to my original network which usually has an open NAT type it would not switch to open...


Thats odd I know I have a moderate because I'm using a wireless 360 network adapter and my brother has open as he uses a ethernet cable. Also maybe if your bro unhooks his maybe yours will be open and his will go to moderate.

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.

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.

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.
