My internet provider set up an open nat for my wireless internet upon request, for free too! Try calling your provider!

set a static ip for your xbox and make sure nothing else on your network is using that port or else your nat type will go to strict because its a first come first serve basis for port forwarding

Your ISP will usually do it for free :P give them a shout!

There are also tutorials online on how to do it. Be prepared to be staring at the computer screen for awhile if you choose this method :0

Hi

If you are still having problems using UPnP and the latest firmware version on your Linksys please try this www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/.../59-my-nat-is-strict-or-moderate

UPnP may still be engaged. There are three conflicting settings in a router; UPnP, Port Forwards/Port Triggers and DMZ. Make sure to have only one of those set.
