Xbox Live NAT nightmare

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am having a huge issue with my router and xbox live getting along. I have a netgear wnr2000v2. I have my xbox hard wired to my desktop, and my desktop wirelessly connected to the router with a static ip. Under "port forwarding" in my router settings I have 53 udp/tcp, 80 tcp, 88 udp, and 3074 udp/tcp, all set for my desktop's ip address. I get on Live sometimes and it says "OPEN NAT" but it will only last 10-15 minutes then it says "CLOSED" and a couple minutes after that is says "disconnected from Xblox Live" I have it setup the exact same as I did on my old router and it worked nicely and was always OPEN. Can someone think of something Im not looking at and help me out? Thanks a bunch for your time!

Who is your ISP and what type of connection is it? When I was on cable all I had to do was port forward the router, but when I switched to Embarq/Centurylink I had to modify the modem settings as well. I'd look into whether or not your modem needs to be set as well as your router.

Another thing to try is DMZ'ing that static IP.

i would try disabling your firewall on the desktop as a start. also what the other guy said about dmz seems logical. you have to remember that your port forwarding rules are going to the desktop first and then it's using ICS to pass it on to your xbox. i don't know much about how that works tbh but i would imagine you have to do some finagling on the desktop to sort it out.

I thought about the dmz, but that would be putting my computer in the dmz which really isn't a good idea at all. Also the xbox is not getting internet through ICS. I have my ethernet and my wireless adapter bridged so its getting internet that way. I will try disabling my firewall on my computer, but these settings worked on my old router with the firewall on. I will update this post after testing, thanks for the ideas!

My ISP is a local wireless DSL company called Total Wireless. I don't have a modem, just a huge antenna on my roof that runs to a filter that plugs into my router.

Ok go into your router and turn on upnp, disable dmz if you have it on. Next go to you xbox and network connections and turn settings onto automatic. If you did this right your nat will be open
