I’m not going to go into too much detail on what your NAT is or why it should be open, but in short, if your NAT isn’t open, you will have a hard time finding games, and it won’t let you join a friends party half of the time. So lets fix this problem.
Go to your computer, and get to Network Connections. To do this, you will click on the start menu, and go to “My Network Places”. Once you get there, click on “view network connections” to the right in the Network tasks box. If your computer is hooked up directly to the router, you will be using the Local Area Network, and if you are wireless, you will be using the Wireless Area Network
Right click on your connection, and then go to “Status.” If you are using XP, click the “Support” tab at the top. If you are running Vista, you will need to click the button that says “Details.”
After you click on “Details” or “Support”, look for and copy down the Default Gateway, and the Subnet Mask. You will need this later.
Close this out, and go to your 360 dashboard. Go to the system blade at the very end of the dashboard, and go to Network settings.
Go down to Edit Settings. Change your IP address settings from Automatic to Manual.
Depending on what your default gateway was, you may have different settings than mine.
For IP Address, enter your default gateway. Instead of one digit for the last number, you will need to change it to something such as 109.
Enter the Subnet Mask(default for most networks is 255.255.255.0) and Default Gateway in the boxes, and press OK.
Now, run a test for Xbox Live. More than likely, you will end up failing the DNS check. This is alright, because we will take care of this in the next step.
Go back to Network Settings, and then change your DNS settings to Manual. For primary DNS server, enter your default gateway.
Run another Xbox Live test, and you should pass everything. However, your NAT will probably still be Strict or Moderate. If it is open, then you are done!
this is not so much a soloution but an idea!
from memory the netopia devices allow you to configure a dmz device by IP or MAC address.
I have had to do something similar but with a buffalo unit instead of your linksys. I ended up having to place the buffalo unitin into a dmz created on the netopia unit. before VPN tunnles were formed correctly.
ok heres the solution. goto start,control panel,performance and maintainance,administrative tools,services. Scroll down to bottom to WIRELESS ZERO CONFIG,double click and click start. now exit and wait a minute and your limited or no connectivity should change to connected, let me know if this helps, Patrick.
