Please check if the x-box is working properly with the modem provided by your internet service provider. If yes, update the firmware of your router and reset it once.

Hello i got the zyxel p660hw-d1 today and its imposible to have open NAT even using DMZ or Upnp, NAT is always moderated. Any solution? thanks


First you must tell me what you are trying to do... becaus you talk about OPEN NAT (i'm not an expert in gaming) but in th network world NAT stand's for Network Address Translation from the WAN side of the router to the LAN side... and Upnp is a protocol, nothing to do with DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone) which involves opening ALL ports in the FireWall of your router to a specific machine on the LAN side....

Dont forget opening ports is opening doors to hackers... (I think the term NAT in the gaming world has some thing to do with controlling access to other players) post me if i'm wrong!!!

Cheers!

I want to change nat type from strict to open when I play Black Ops. My router is a Thomson TG585 v8. How can I do that? Thank You in advance


Step 1: Get your Xbox 360's IP address from the system blade and choose network settings. Then edit settings should show your Xbox's IP.

Step 2: Go into your routers configuration window thru Internet Explorer. In the address bar type in your routers IP address. It should be default at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. When you're prompted for a password you have found it =P. If you haven't changed it the username and password should both be admin, and admin.

Step 3: USING DMZ When you enter into your router config window, you need to find the Tab DMZ, it should be under applications and gaming if you are using Linksys. Once you find the DMZ tab, click enable and type in the last digits of your XBOX into the box below. Yes when you do this you are opening all the ports on your Xbox, which is insecure, but show me someone that has hacked into an xbox 360?

Step 4:Using Port Fowarding After you have enabled DMZ, find the Port Fowarding tab, should be under advanced routing. For the name type in XBL or whatever you want, and for port range put 87 to 89, choose UDP, then your XBOX last digits, and enable. Then do 3073 to 3075 choose TCP, then your XBOX last digits, and enable. Then again do 3073 to 3075 choose UDP, then your XBOX last digits, and enable.

Step 5:Using UPnP This is just incase. Go into UPnP fowarding and enter in the same stuff you did for Step 4.

Step 6: Now logout of your router config. Unplug your router and modem from the power, then plug in the router 1st, wait 30 seconds. Then plug in the modem and wait at least 2 minutes. If you don't do these hard restarts it might not work!

Step 7: Restart your Xbox and go to the system blade, choose network settings, then test connection. This may take a bit, but when it gets down to NAT type it should say OPEN. If not, sorry. You can just undo all the settings we changed, you can just uncheck enabled on the port fowarding. or if you want to restore your router to the factory defaults just push the reset button on the back of it.

Once again this may not work for everyone, but it worked for me and my friends, so good luck.

Hi there! i have a zyxel ph660-f1z and since it doesnt suport dmz i get nat type moderate on my ps3 so it gives a lot of trouble.... i have tried port fordwarding,upnp,default server but nothing seems to...


Sometimes not just the dmz or port configurations cause your nat settings to be other than open, you may not have good internet connection, the better it is the more you will open. Most routers are open by default, and those others need to be forwarded(like you wrote) with the upnp open and specific ports for xbox/ps3 servers opened. You seem to know a little already, maybe time to get a new router?,I recently upgraded myself due to problems with configuration.

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.
