Depending on your router, you will need to go to its setup. Go to the link where you can forward ports. (Port range forwarding). Then you will enter the information that you recieved when you called Xbox Customer Support. (Call them for it, it is free) Enter the information and you will be good to go.

How to unmute yourself on xbox 360


Hi there I can sort understand what you mean and I think this is the answer. If you cannot be heard normally in chat when online even though your mic is turned on or you have made sure that in preferences, you went in to audio settings and made sure you were not on mute? My guess is your having issues with your NAT settings as this can affect you chat settings when online. For example, xheck your NAT status and if it is MODERATE or STRICT then this is why. If you NAT is OPEN then it is because the players you are playing with have a NAT issue. MODERATE and STRICT NAT's will limit what you can do online, including chatting.
Hope this answers your question :)

I went on a trip and connected to a network with a moderate NAT type. When I got home I tried to connect back to my original network which is usually open and it didn't switch back to open. I connect using...


var YAHOO = {'Shortcuts' : {}}; if (typeof YAHOO == "undefined") { var YAHOO = {}; } YAHOO.Shortcuts = YAHOO.Shortcuts '' {}; YAHOO.Shortcuts.hasSensitiveText = false; YAHOO.Shortcuts.sensitivityType = []; YAHOO.Shortcuts.doUlt = false; YAHOO.Shortcuts.location = "us"; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_id = 0; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_type = ""; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_title = ""; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_publish_date = ""; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_author = "ross.haller@yahoo.com"; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_url = ""; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_tags = ""; YAHOO.Shortcuts.document_language = "english"; YAHOO.Shortcuts.version = "2.10.0"; YAHOO.Shortcuts.annotationSet = { "lw_1299607050_0": { "text": "http://www.xbox360forum.com/xbox-forum/threads/51908-How-To-Open-NAT.-xbox-360", "extended": 0, "startchar": 286, "endchar": 363, "start": 286, "end": 363, "extendedFrom": "", "predictedCategory": "", "predictionProbability": "0", "weight": 1, "capAbtScore": 0, "abtScore": 0, "csScore": 0, "prismaScore": 0, "spectrumResolutionScore": 0, "conceptScore": 0, "type": ["shortcuts:/us/instance/identifier/hyperlink/http"], "category": ["IDENTIFIER"], "wikiId": "", "relatedWikiIds": [], "relatedEntities": [], "showOnClick": [], "context": "http://www.xbox360forum.com/xbox-forum/threads/51908-How-To-Open-NAT.-xbox-360", "metaData": { "linkHref": "http://www.xbox360forum.com/xbox-forum/threads/51908-How-To-Open-NAT.-xbox-360", "linkProtocol": "http", "linkRel": "nofollow", "linkTarget": "_blank", "visible": "true" } } }; YAHOO.Shortcuts.annotationSetID = "1eac068650c8d27415163f15165866e5"; http://www.xbox360forum.com/xbox-forum/threads/51908-How-To-Open-NAT.-xbox-360

How do you change the NAT


NAT (number addressing translation) it is a setting for router or gateway,and needs to be open
you can change the settings of your router/gateway via GUI (graphical user interface) now it will depend on your router manufacturer

XBOX 360 strict NAT problem


Make sure you also open the ports on your router. IF you have all the appropriate ports open and still have strict NAT, it's more than likely your ISP and you should give them a call.

I cant hear people talking on my ax 180s but my mic doesnt work i have 360 help


ou should check your NAT type [the think that lets you connect, talk, hear, and play with people on Xbox Live]

Go to the Xbox Dashboard, Network Settings and Test Xbox Live Connection.

In the bottom of the tests, it will say your NAT Type

Strict= Bad
Moderate= Sucky
Open= Works Fine

If its Open, then you know thats not the problem.

If its Strict/Moderate, go to More Info and they will tell you more about it and give you a website that will help you out. Source(s): Experience

P.S. [That website that will help you out]

www.xbox.com/setup

P.S.S. Have you checked the batteries? Sometimes when the battery of a wireless is low, it won't allow you to speak

Cant have private chat or play games with friends


This should solve your problem

For most devices that use NAT, port forwarding is not required to connect to Xbox Live. This is especially true if you use an Xbox Live certified device. Sometimes, you may have to configure port settings on a non Xbox Live certified router or gateway.

If there is a firewall device between the Xbox console and the network device, you may have to configure the firewall to enable communication on specific network ports. If the NAT status in the Network Status area of the Dashboard is "moderate" or "strict," you may have to configure port settings.

The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
� UDP 88
� UDP 3074
� TCP 3074

To open the ports on your router see this handy website here,

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

which gives you a step by step guide.

Before opening the ports you must give your Xbox 360 a static IP address (manual) be sure to use an IP address that no other item on your network is using and is fairly high up in your range, for example if your router's address is 192.168.0.1 then you should use something like 192.168.10 for your Xbox 360.

You can also enable DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) on your router, which will open up all the ports to your Xbox 360, however NEVER use this on a PC's IP, see your router's manual on how to do this.

Once the correct ports are open for your Xbox 360, then your NAT should say open.

Xbox live connection: My NAT


its likely your router needs to have port forwarding setup on it, or you could try setting up your Xbox ip address as a DMZ on your router.

however some routers simply wont work, I had a voyager 105 using port forwarding but it still never worked till i changed to a Draytek

post more details of your router and what you have tried.

also you cant go far wrong visiting here
