You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.RICHARDM69 Was this solution helpful?

My nat is set to strict and I have done all the port forwarding and open ports nothing works i'm very frustrated.


As you said your NAT is set to "Strict" I assume this is about the Xbox 360.

Put the IP Address of your Xbox 360 in the DMZ on your router. Anything in the DMZ is free of all firewall restrictions and all ports are open to this device. Once you place the Xbox 360 in the DMZ your NAT will be Open.

Thank you for using FixYa!

How can I play with two xbox at the same time? Right now when both are on xbox live one has a strict NAT and the other is open how do I set up my router so both can play with open NAT?


NAT (Network Address Translation) allows your router to use one IP address with your ISP, but assign internal IP addresses to your devices using DHCP. When you refer to "strict NAT" I have to assume you mean that the device has a static (set) IP. If you want them both to work at the same time, you'll have to set each xbox to accept DHCP addressing (ie., dynamic IP addresses) and make sure your router is set to perform as a DHCP server (which it probably is...that's the default).

I can't set up a second Xbox to our router whith a "open nat setting" The first xbox is fine , but the second one is not. We can play online together, but it limits our playing capacity when we use both...


Strict does not give the ISP capicity band width Nat status should always be open in order to connect both the Xbox, also check the ports TCP 80 • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074 • UDP 53 • TCP 53 this port should be open.

Change NAT from strict to open


You need to do port forwarding on your router. First, you must setup a static IP address on your XBOX. Then You must open these ports on your router setup page using Port Forwarding feature. 80 TCP and UDP, 53 TCP and UDP, 3074 TCP and UDP.

Find out what ip address your xbox is using and then Click on the DMZportion of your settings on the left hand side of the page.

Enter the xbox's ip address and click the enable box.

Set nat to open


These routers have a setting underneath the advanced tab (within advanced setup) called UPNP.....all three of the active tick boxes need a tick in (by default they don't) and this will sort the NAT stuff out.
