SOURCE: Change NAT to open

The ports should be opened only in the router not in the, go to a working pc..

To allow traffic from the internet to enter your local network, you will need to open up ports or the router will block the request.

Because our routers use NAT (Network Address Translation), you can only open a specific port or ports to one computer at a time. For example: If you have 2 web servers on your network, you cannot open port 80 to both computers. You will need to configure 1 of the web servers to use port 81. Now you can open port 80 to the first computer and then open port 81 to the other computer.

  • Step 1 Open your web browser and enter the IP address of your D-Link router ( Enter username (admin) and your password (blank by default).

    Step 2 Click on the Advanced tab at the top and then click Virtual Server on the left side.

    Step 3 Check Enabled to activate entry.

    Step 4 Enter a name for your virtual server entry.

    Step 5 Next to Private IP, enter the IP address of the computer on your local network that you want to allow the incoming service to.
  • to check ip in your pc.. go to start menu click run.. type cmd and hit ok
  • in the black window enter ipconfig and hit enter, you will find the ip address

    Step 6 Choose Protocol Type - either TCP, UDP, or both. If you are not sure, select both.

    Step 7 Enter the port information next to Private Port and Public Port. The private and public ports are usually the same. The public port is the port seen from the WAN side, and the private port is the port being used by the application on the computer within your local network.

    Step 8 Enter the Schedule information.

    Step 9 Click Apply and then click Continue.
  • This would fix your problem..

    Helpfull Info

    Sometimes depending on the router brand, it's not possible to open your NAT, this simpily becuase some are not specificly designed for Xbox Live purposes. A good example of this is Belkin routers. These brands are most commonly made for Buissness connection servers. If you are experiencing a STRICT/MODERATE Nat with a Belkin router, the chances are you are going to have to deal with it, but that is not 100% of the time. If you've have attempted several techniques to open your Nat and the changes arnt happening, i'd recommend a 'N' powerd Belkin router, the most majority of these routers work 100% perect for Xbox Live, I myself oned one but changed due to a broadband switch.

    How do I change the NAT firewall protection? (Open/Moderate/Strict)

    Find your IP address number then type it in on your web browser, this will bring up all your switchable options where several options can be changed to your approval. The NAT firewall is one of these options which can be changed. (like I mentioned before, if you own a Belkin router, the chances are even after changing the fireall level, it will turn back to moderate or strict)

    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
