The NAT usually has to do with a device connected to a router. You cannot change the NAT on a modem, only a router. To change it to open, you have to simple forward ports.

And how do you forward ports?

Posted on Jul 19, 2008

So everyone talks jargen and some of us have no idea what the hell you are talking about lol. How do you forward ports? I don't understand what you mean. I have my cable modem directly connected (wired) to my xbox 360. Yet it tells me Moderate for my NAT. How the heck do I get it Open? Can you walk me through it? Step by step not just say one or two words.

Posted on May 25, 2008

Actually you can, just contact your service provider or call a local expert for about 1.99 a min. It will take about 5 min. to walk you through it. I had to do it, and it helped my xbox live connection tremendously.

I am gaming and my game keeps giving a message that says ( my router's NAT Type is STRICT) but I'm hooked up directly to my motorola surboard. how can i fix this please.

Did you look up NAT on the web??? in all cases in gaming terms NAT has noting to do with routers it's a term used for filtering opponents (other users) in a game... in routers the term NAT stands for Network Adress Translation) nothing to do with gaming, fire walls or ports, only ROUTING, WELCOME TO THE NETWORK/GAMING WORLD... look in to the game settings instead of the router's

How do I change my NAT settings on this modem

Hi there,
Your NAT settings have to do with your router, not the modem. Log into your router's control panel. This is normally done by typing If that doesn't work, go to Start, type in cmd, hit Enter, then type in IPCONFIG. The Gateway Address is what you want to type into your Internet Browser. You will need to log into the router's Control Panel once you type this in. This is usually done by typing in "admin" as the username, or the password, or both.

This will be different depending on the manufacturer of your router, but once you log in, look for two advanced settings called NAT and UPNP. They should be near each other. You want to change NAT to Open.

If that doesn't work, go to and check the port codes from the service you are trying to connect to. You can enter these codes into the Port Forwarding section of your router's control panel.

Hope this helps!
