You do not need to do anything to play online games unless you are the server. If you are the server you need to identify the ports the game uses and forward them through your router to the IP address of your game server computer.

Good luck!

SOURCE: How do i set my Netgear Routers NAT type to open for playing xbox 360 games?

Ok in order to help you resolve this issue I need more information. Is this a newly setup router? Did you setup any type of security? WEP OR WPA these are encryption tools that allow only you to get onto your network.

I assume you know the ip adress of your xbox.

First of all check on your router to see if UPNP is enabled.

Then go to Portforwarding/Port triggering.

Then add custom service

service name: the name of how you call it. doesn't matter really
service type is UDP
start port 88
end port 88
server ip is the adress of your xbox

then apply and make another custom service

name it how you want
service type tcp/udp
start port 3074
end port 3074
server ip adress of you xbox

this should work

How to set XBOX nat type to open?


Xbox one? If so go to settings and look at net work (or where ever your Nat type is displayed) and click the button with the word multiplayer on it (it checks the multiplayer speed) then when it's done and complete don't back out at that "complete" screen hold the following buttons LT, LB,RT,RB at one time and it will give you an accurate report of your Nat then back out and look at your Nat type if it didn't work the first time repeat. Hope this helps

One friend and I can not get into each others lobby


I know 1st hand that there has been an issue with the game network, not the game. Also you have to have a nat type two which means you are linked to router straight, as well as an open nat type in the game. The way to insure you have a nat type 2 is by Going into your router and synching the DNS server and setting up the PS3 with a Static IP as well as putting that IP in your routers DMZ. If either of you or your friend is in a nat type restricted you will not be able to get into eachothers lobby.

How do you open nat type on the ps3 ?


Nat type is actually defined by your isp..(internet service provider) some companies do not actually support gaming and therefore their service is considered "strict" by ps3 standards for multiplayer gaming online. You may have to reconfigure your pc internet security settings on the computer itself...possibly logging into your router/modem. If this is not helpful or u are unsure of how to do this, contact your isp and explain to them you want the nat type changed...basically they will either not be able to at all and then u need a new isp or they can do it in a matter of minutes and ur nat type will change and give u full access to ps3 online within a matter of hours...hope it helps and u get back to gaming!

I have a Motorola WR850G i am looking to open my nat type for my ps3 system i also have a DSL Verizon cable modem which i have open the nat type for that now I'm trying to figure out how to open my nat...


If your using a router, you have to ENABLE the UPnp within your router settings. Once enabled your NAT should be OPEN.
If you do not know how to get into your router, you will need to ask someone you trust to do this.

Hi how can i change my NAT type from 2 to 0 ?


You are trying to open the NAT on the router for X-box.
For this you will need to reduce the MTU settings on the router to 1365.
You will also need to trigger some ports on the router.
For this you will need to open the router set up page.
Router set up page is the page where you can change the settings of the router

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
