    hi I also have the same problem at the moment to make full use of xbox live have to attatch an ethernet cable straight thru to xbox 360 and it works fine but then no one else can go on line.

    I have had a go at changing the nat settings but couldnt do it then I tried port forwarding which I gave up on as It seemed rather too complicated for my very limited knowledge of all things computer related .

    So if anyone has got the time to expalin how to do this in a way that a numpty like me can follow it would be very much appreciated.

    Many thanks

A. Determining the IP Address and MAC Address of a Computer/Game Console (PS3, XBOX, Wii, etc...):

Note: Please use the computer for which the Ports are to be opened:

For Windows 2000/XP users:

1. Please click on Start and select Run.
2. Type in cmd and click on OK.
3. In the Command Prompt, please type ipconfig/all then press Enter or Return key.
4. Please make sure that the Ethernet adapter has an IP Address that is the same range as the router (e.g. 192.168.1.2 for the computer and 192.168.1.1 for the router).
5. Please note down the IP address and Physical address.

B. Reserving an IP Address:

1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on LAN IP Setup under Advanced tab.
5. Click on Add under Address Reservation.
6. Under Address Reservation window, please select the radio button of the computer you wish to add from the Address Reservation Table.
7. If the computer you want is not on the list, please click on the Refresh button to update the table.
8. If the computer is still not on the Address Reservation Table, please type in the IP Address, MAC Address (Physical Address), and Device Name of the computer you wish to add.
9. Click the Add button when done.

C. Opening Pre-Defined Ports for Internet Services:

NOTE: Port numbers can be provided by Tech support of each Console game Manufacturer..You can call them first...


1. Click on the option with the name Port Forwarding/Port Triggering under the Advanced menu.
2. Please select the service type Port Forwarding. The router pre-defined services are listed there.
3. From the Service Name pull down list, select the service that needs to be hosted.
4. Enter the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box.
5. Click the Add or Apply button.
6. Repeat all steps to open more ports.

Note: If the name of the Internet service does not appear in the drop down list, you may manually open the ports for that Internet service. Please follow the steps below:

D. Opening Ports for Games, Applications or Custom Ports:

1. Click on Add Custom Service button.
2. Type the service name in the Service Name box and the lower range numbers in the Starting Port box.
3. If the application uses only a single port; type in the same port number in the Ending Port box.
4. If the application uses a range of ports; type in the higher range numbers in the Ending Port box.
5. Type the IP address of the computer in the Server IP Address box. Click Apply button.
6. It will then refresh to the Port Forwarding page, and will show the list of all ports opened in tabulation.
7. Repeat all steps to add more ports for more services.

E. To Edit or Delete a Service Entry:

1. Click on the Radio Button that needs to be Edited /Deleted, under the Port Forwarding page.
2. Modify the information from the Service Name, Starting Port, Ending Port, and the Server IP Address, and then click the Apply button.

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.

My nat type is moderate on my xbox360 and i have a laptop running off a zhone router i cant go to any ip address web page. it tells me cant connect to webpage. what are the steps to makeing my nat type...


Are you able to get into the router configuration somehow? You need to open ports on the router, for the xbox to not be moderate. Let me know the model router you have. If you like I could connect in to your computer remotely and give you a hand with it.

make sure the security settings on router is WEP-Personal. I don't know what you have for internet but Dial-up, DSL, and satellite internet will not get NAT 1.

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.

Router will not allow me to play onling games through xbox 360


If the problem has something to do with NAT firewall in your router, then you may need to open certain application ports for your XBOX in the router. You may check this link from Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908874 that talks about NAT firewall and XBOX live.

Hope this helps!

NAT from moderate to open (xbox 360)


You need to open ports for that game on your router. Nat can't be disabled, make sure the correct ports are properly forwarded on your router. Contact the game manufacturer for the port listing.

How to Open NAT?


Look for a setting like "Virtual DMZ Host". It's hard to tell for sure without knowing the make and model of your router.
