Hello

Your router does not have moderate or open nat options.

Options that it does have are Public Lan - nat type and Private Lan -nat type.

Your router also has a DMZ feature and port forwarding options.
User manual for your router is available at http://www22.verizon.com/ResidentialHelp/HighSpeed/Networking/User+Guides/User+Guides.htm

To get your xbox live working properly, you can try using the public nat type, if that does not solve the problem, turn on DMZ for the address of the Xbox360. Now if that still does not solve the problem, then you would need to set up port forwarding for all the ports that xbox live uses.

I would personally recommend that you enable port forwarding for the required ports.
Ports that need to be open are
TCP 80 • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074 • UDP 53 • TCP 53

Together with the user manual and xbox360 portforwarding guides that are available here http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/Xbox_Live_360/Xbox_Live_360index.htm

You will be able to get it working.

But since that is a lot of information for anyone that has not used port forwarding before I'll write down step by step how to get started.

First get on your computer, You need to connect to the routers own configuration page. By default this is http://192.168.1.1

So, open your internet browser and write HTTP://192.168.1.1 and press enter.

Now you get a a user and password prompt. the username is admin and the password is password. all lower case.

Now on the top menu, click on Firewall settings.

Now select Port forwarding. more information and pictures on the user manual page 98 and forward. You need to create a new rule or rules that forward the above ports - allow them to be open to the internet for the xbox 360.

Looking at page 112. You would create a new port forwarding service, you need to add all the ports one by one. And the host device would be the IP address of the xbox.

Now the DMZ option will be simpler, that is on page 118. You just need to find the xbox ip address from its network options and put it there, and turn on the DMZ. That will allow all traffic for that machine.

Let me know how far you get. I'll help if you get stuck, sorry if this post is a bit unclear, this is a very small box to write in, I can't easily see everything I've already written here.

Testimonial: "Your info sounds helpful and I will pass it on to other users. I enabled the Static NAT for the IP address of the xbox from my web browser. Worked."

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 need to make my Nat type open instead of moderate. How do I do that?


I just opened my NAT type to play xbox live...using a SURFboard Motorola.
And this site helped me alot:
http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:d_5pu90czsoJ:news.softpedia.com/news/Guide-to-Opening-NAT-Xbox-360-71775.shtml+nat+type+xbox+360+open&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca


but watch this video first, cause it will help out allot too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gb9kafn8Ebs


With these guides, and bit of web reading from other peoples FAQ's.. I did it.

The guide you need will depend on what modem/router you have.

Good Luck

I have a Westell Versalink 327W with a strict nat and I want to open it up for Xbox Live. I have tried port forwarding but that only bumps it down to moderate not open. What should I do?


PS3 and Xbox ( NON BELKIN)

You Will Have to Disable the Firewall In Your modem / Router

And IF it is a router then Open The Ports

• TCP 80
• UDP 88
• UDP 3074
• TCP 3074
• UDP 53
• TCP 53

And also make sure that UPnP is Enabled

Xbox needs NAT settings to be ''open'' not ''moderate'' How do I do this?


You need to go into your routers configuration page and Change the NAT, Network Address Translation, to "OPEN" or in other words, ALL traffic can pass through, as opposed to the "Moderate" or Allowing ONLY certain sorts of traffic to pass through to your PC. You need to look in your manual as to how to do this. basically you type the "Address" of the "Router" into the address bar of a browser, and login with login & password, then go to the NAT section and change it there.

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.

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.

Xbox live connection: My NAT


its likely your router needs to have port forwarding setup on it, or you could try setting up your Xbox ip address as a DMZ on your router.

however some routers simply wont work, I had a voyager 105 using port forwarding but it still never worked till i changed to a Draytek

post more details of your router and what you have tried.

also you cant go far wrong visiting here
