    Are you behind a NAT firewall?

    What error message are you getting from XBOX aside from NAT-strict? E.g. Lower MTU or ports block

  • Coss May 11, 2010

    What do you mean that it is Strict?

    NAT is the most common LAN setting used.



    Nat doesn't control opening and closing, that is done by the ports.



    What is the specific problem you are having connecting the Xbox?

The easiest way to fix this is to replace your router.
Here is a list of routers that are Xbox approved

The model you mentioned that you have is not on the approved list from Microsoft.

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.

Change NAT to open


First make sure your security type on the router is WEP-Personal. You may need to get the port range for that game or manufacturer. Then enter them in to the gaming tab. This will keep ports open all the time. NAT 2 is acceptable but you want NAT 1. Some internet connections cannot get NAT1.reply if you need further assistance

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.

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.

Change NAT to open


I have this router and have just enabled the NAT settings from Strict to Open:-

1. Log into router's IP address (192.168.1.1) and enter password. Select "Advanced Setup".

2. Click on Advanced on left hand menu and select UPnP

3. Check all three boxes in window and click on Apply

4. Close router configuration window and run XBox test again. Worked for me!
