Help dmz xbox please

Hi there i have a linksys x3000 router and was wanting some help putting it into dmz mode.Im guessing its using upnp because most of the time my nat type is open but im occasionally finding it moderate ,Doing a connection test usually puts it back to open.But i would rather open nat becoming a constant ,Ive looked at a few you tube clips but they dont make alot of sense to me.So can anyone help me out ?

Sounds like your xbox IP address keeps changing when you switch it on.

Putting it in DMZ mode is probably not necessary.

But you will need to fix the IP address so that your router always gives the xbox the same IP address.

If the IP address is always the same then UPnP should be enough.

Anyway go to this page and scroll down for the section titled "Is your NAT open but changes to moderate/strict over time"

There are instructions on how to fix the IP address there but they are for Netgear so you will have to adapt the instructions for your router

DMZ puts a heavy work load on your router CPU; Port Forwarding puts a lower load on it. Heavily loaded routers get slow; slow routers get you killed in FPS. Use Port Forwarding instead of the DMZ; you only need to forward ports 3074 (TCP+UDP) and 88 (UDP only).

DHCP Reservation lets you lock down the IP address on the home network without going to Manual IP, so if you take your Xbox away from home, it will work on automatic settings.

Under Basic Settings, click DHCP Reservation

Choose the xbox from the DHCP client table by clicking check mark

Click "Add Client"

=

Then you can set up Port Forwarding by choosing Applications & Gaming at the top.

It should bring you to the default page of Single Port Forwarding.

Complete each line for Port Forwarding, with the service name, external and internal port, protocol, IP Address and lastly make sure to enable it.

XBOX  3074  3074  BOTH  ip address <ENABLE>

KERBEROS 88 88     UDP  ip address <ENABLE>

<Save>
