If you know how to set the port forwarding on your router/modem then you need to set the following ports up to forward to your Xbox's IP address:

Xbox LIVE requires the following ports to be open:

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

Problem with NAT type for xbox live? I have a Belkin wireless G Plus Mimo router and i have strict Nat type when geting on XBL. Any way to make this open?


yup....you can login to the router setup page by typing 192.168.23.1 in internet explorer...
on the left side you will find an option called firewall....click on that..it ll prompt for the password..(password: leave ot blank and click submit)
go ahead and disable it...
also click on DMZ on the left side of router setup page and enable it for the IP address assigned to the XBOX...
also get into virtual servers on left side and open common gaming ports like,
port 80
port 88
port 3074
port 53
port 443
for both tcp and udp....
in addition to that you need to open ports suggested by XBOX vendor...
thats it, you are done with that....as you open ports for xbox in virtual servers
the particular ports for xbox gets bypassed from NAT...so you need not worry about NAT hereafter...
also make sure that the modem provided by the ISP is not NAT enabled...if so ask the ISP to Bridge the
modem,so that you would not face further issues with XBOX....

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 cannot join parties on xbox live


Open or forward ports on the router for your Xbox. Get the ports from Xbox live then configure the router to allow those ports to pass.

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


maybe instead of nat, set you xbox as a DMZ host. This would be done on the router itself. It will allow the Xbox to bypass the firewall and nat on the router/gateway, and at the same time keep your computer safe.

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

Strict NAT?


If you call microsoft, and tell them that your NAT is strict, they will tell you specific ports you will need to forward. (For Free). If you arent sure how to forward ports, call up your routers manuafturer, or send me another message. I have forwarded my ports as well.
