First question is do you know what NAT stands for? It is Network Address Translation. In simple terms, it assigns IP address to your network. Unless you've fooled around the settings should be unchanged.

For the simplest possible solution, try shutting down ALL the equipment. Then boot in this order: the cable/DSL modem, the router, the switch, the Xbox console. Give the modem and router plenty of time (30-40 seconds) before booting the next device.

Come back if this doesn't work.

Xbox live does not work properly


nat is quite crazy when it comes to the xbox, their are many ways of changing your nat back to open here is the easiest, on network settings on your xbox change the network from manual to automatic or from automatic to manual if you don't know how to make your network from automatic to manual go get a computer with wirless internet connection, *note the next steps i am about to tell you are for xp if you have vista or windows 7 you might figure out what im doing and use the vista or win7 way to pull up the info if you need to know* go to start, connect to wireless connection, support, details. these are the information you need to know write all of them down then type them in on your xbox but when you get to ip address type everything in but the last number and instead of the writen last number place a number one above it like if the last number was 4 the place 5 but if you test network and that does not work make it 6 ect. then your nat will be open again.

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.

Change NAT to open


You need to open all the ports for the xbox live. The NAT of that router model cannot be configured to open. Its just a simple NAT for internet connection.

Open NAT with Thomson (Speedtouch) TG585 v7 Router


First, try adding a wireless card to the Xbox, run the wireless off of the router OR if you have multiple connections (broadband, should be an "In" port, and several "Out" ports) Try connecting your PC and you Xbox through the "Out" ports, with the cable modem cord hooked into the "In" port...

since NAT has to be set on the Linksys...

Nat type


I have the same router (WRT300N) and this is what I did. I don't know if it will work for more than one Xbox360.

- Go to the Setting of the router.

- Applications & Gaming

- DMZ 
. Enable the DMZ
. Choice the Mac Adress under the Destination.
. If you don't know the Mac Adress of your Xbox360 click on the tab: DHCP CLIENT TABLE
.Now from there choice your Xbox360 ( the Xbox360 won't have a Client Name but hopefully you only have your Xbox360 and your computer)
and now save your setting and restart your Xbox360 and there you go NAT open. This also help if you get any kind of  LAG while someone is on the computer using the internet, your Xbox360 will be high priorty to the router.
HOPE THAT HELP
