X360 NAT Problem

  1. Hey Guys,

    I am using a Netgear WGT624 Wireless Router, and there's a problem with the NAT being set as strict. There are some vague explanations on the internet as to why this is, however, nothing that really says *How* to fix it.

    So can anyone help me please? Would be much appreciated, Thanks.

    hum; You need to Port Forward from the router to the Xbox.. NAT is not the real problem.

    Okay then, but what's the port number?

    Port settings for Xbox Live

    The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly:
    • UDP 88
    • UDP 3074
    • TCP 3074

    see the MS KB article for details

    mine did this and opening the ports on my router had no affect, however opening them on my software router (comodo) on my pc fixed the problem even though it makes no sense as the connection is not going through my pc? router is wired to the pc btw

    if your lan is wired
    Code:
    modem----router----PC
               +
               + ----- Xbox
    
    you would be correct; port forwarding directly to the Xbox IP address should work.

    however this setup
    Code:
    modem----router----PC----Xbox
    would make sense
