Having trouble resolving my strict nat on xbox 360 live through my router if i hook up straight to my modem my nat is open but with the router hooked up its strict


Open the GUI page of your router and configure DMZ

(Open command prompt on your system, Start>RUN>CMD, type ipconfig in the black window, check the default gateway, put the same address in the address bar of your internet browser like internet explore, it might ask you for username and password, which would be either 'admin' 'admin' or admin for username and 'pasword' for password)

Put your XBOX in DMZ and it should work

Or else simply go into advanced configuration in the Router GUI page and disable NAT

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

Look through the menu's on the router for UPNP. Turn it on. Then turn it on on the XBOX. UPNP is Universal Plugand play. that should configure the router for you automatically.

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.
