This is a very extensive procedure. If you go to microsofts website under XBOX networking support, it will tell you what ports must be entered. It is at the link below.

From there, you will have to read the documentation for your router on how to put it in. There is some information here

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.

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 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

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.

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 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

Nat not open


NAT problems do not always lie within the router hardware, sometimes the firmware may require updating, or the router may not be compatible with the Xbox 360.

I Suggest taking these steps to Try to alleviate your Problem:

1) Power Cycle All the devices Connected to your Network

Follow these steps to power cycle your modem and router:
¤ Disconnect the power supply from the modem, and then disconnect the power supply from the
router.
¤ Press the power button to turn off the Xbox console.
¤ Turn off the computer and any other devices that are part of the network. Leave the devices
unplugged and turned off for at least three minutes.
¤ Turn the modem and router back on by connecting their power supplies. Make sure that all lights
on the modem and router are illuminated according to the manufacturer’s specifications. For more
information, see the documentation that was included with the modem and the router.
¤ Turn on the Xbox console, the computer, and any other devices on the network.

2) Test your Xbox Live connection and Check if the NAT is still showing up as Moderate Or Strict.

3) Navigate to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/connecttolive/xbox360/homenetworking/equipment.htm to Check that your Networking Devices are compatible with Xbox Live and also that they have the Most Up-to-date Firmware !

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.

Nat / strict


First, why are you connecting to your laptop? Second, reset your modem and router. I doubt you need to open ports that are not normally open...but if you think you need to do more, access the router and open the ports manually.
