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.
