You need to forward these ports on both your router, and computer aswell as firewall you got one of those.

  • Port 88 (UDP)
  • Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
  • Port 80 (TCP)

You might aswell need to open 1863 (UDP and TCP) if you want to use video chat for the kinect.
Listed ports need to be forwarded when connecting to XBOX Live
A more detailed guide to setting it up is available here: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/xbox-360/networking/network-ports-used-xbox-live

Hello. I need to change my NAT type on my Xbox 360 from moderate to open using a Westell Versalink 7500 router.


Hello

Your router does not have moderate or open nat options.

Options that it does have are Public Lan - nat type and Private Lan -nat type.

Your router also has a DMZ feature and port forwarding options.
User manual for your router is available at http://www22.verizon.com/ResidentialHelp/HighSpeed/Networking/User+Guides/User+Guides.htm

To get your xbox live working properly, you can try using the public nat type, if that does not solve the problem, turn on DMZ for the address of the Xbox360. Now if that still does not solve the problem, then you would need to set up port forwarding for all the ports that xbox live uses.

I would personally recommend that you enable port forwarding for the required ports.
Ports that need to be open are
TCP 80 • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074 • UDP 53 • TCP 53

Together with the user manual and xbox360 portforwarding guides that are available here http://portforward.com/english/applications/port_forwarding/Xbox_Live_360/Xbox_Live_360index.htm

You will be able to get it working.

But since that is a lot of information for anyone that has not used port forwarding before I'll write down step by step how to get started.

First get on your computer, You need to connect to the routers own configuration page. By default this is http://192.168.1.1

So, open your internet browser and write HTTP://192.168.1.1 and press enter.

Now you get a a user and password prompt. the username is admin and the password is password. all lower case.

Now on the top menu, click on Firewall settings.

Now select Port forwarding. more information and pictures on the user manual page 98 and forward. You need to create a new rule or rules that forward the above ports - allow them to be open to the internet for the xbox 360.

Looking at page 112. You would create a new port forwarding service, you need to add all the ports one by one. And the host device would be the IP address of the xbox.

Now the DMZ option will be simpler, that is on page 118. You just need to find the xbox ip address from its network options and put it there, and turn on the DMZ. That will allow all traffic for that machine.

Let me know how far you get. I'll help if you get stuck, sorry if this post is a bit unclear, this is a very small box to write in, I can't easily see everything I've already written here.

Once i open my router how do i actually open the ports for xbox tcp80,udp88,exctra im using a action tec gt704wg wireless router


http://www.actiontec.com/support/product_details.php?pid=40&typ=doc
Your manual above it also shows you how to open ports in there.
Also if you go to http://portforward.com/, they will show you how to do it too. Go to the link below.
http://www.portforward.com/networking/staticip-xbox360.htm



Actiontec Gateways and Routers are compatible with the Xbox. However, it may be necessary to forward the ports used by the Xbox, in the Actiontec Gateway or Router. Without Port Forwarding, the Xbox Connection Test may report a "NAT" rating of "STRICT" or "MODERATE", rather than "OPEN".
It is also explained below...

Hi,
In this regard, I would recommend you to forward certain port no’s on
the Router.

Port numbers: UDP- 88, TCP/UDP- 3074

It is in this context, I would suggest you to please try with the
following troubleshooting steps:

A) Assign static IP and DNS address to the XBOX.

1. Assign IP address as: 192.168.1.50; Subnet mask as: 255.255.255.0
and Default Gateway as: 192.168.1.1
2. Assign Primary DNS Address as: 192.168.1.1 and Secondary DNS
Address as: 4.2.2.2

# Please Contact X-Box Technical Support to assign the Static IP
Address on Your X-Box.


C) Open the ports on the Router using the following steps:

1. Click on Port Forwarding under Advanced.
2. Click on ‘Port Forwarding’ on the left hand column on the screen.
3. On the bottom of the screen, click on ‘Add Custom Service’.
4. Give a name to the service (for example, XBOX1).
5. Select Service Type as UDP and key in the starting port and ending
port as 88.
6. In the Server IP Address specify 192.168.1.50
7. Hit ‘Apply’.
8. Click on 'Wan Setup' Under 'Advanced'.
9. Check the box 'DMZ Server'. Type in the IP Address 192.168.1.50.
Click On 'Apply'.
10. Log Out of the Router Page.
