Problem with xbox live open NAT

PLEASE HELP!! I have had open NAT for a very long time since following a post on setting up the different ports. It is only recently that I have changed from an open NAT to a moderate one and I do not understand what caused it. I run on a WRT54G v8 Linksys router connected to a broadband comcast modem model DHG536. I can still play on live but I am constantly kicked out of parties and off live at random times. This has not been a problem until recently and I will take any help you can give.

Don't mean to be hijacking this thread, but there are a few things I've noticed about Linksys routers in general when it comes to NAT;

If you haven't reset it recently or had any power surges you may try factory-defaulting it via the hard reset button in the back (It's inset, you have to push it with a pin or a pen). Keep in mind that you will have to set up your router again, that means being connected directly from computer to router with an ethernet cable, logging into it and setting up the wireless again. Try it that way, make sure the UPNP is on, if that doesn't work, try setting your Xbox's IP address into the "DMZ" section of the router.

If you're not sure how to set up your wireless, make sure you have someone who knows how with you before you restore the factory defaults.

I would reset it but the computer its hooked up to has a lot of issues and runs to slow but I'll try the DMZ and see if that works.

A sequential power cycle is the first step in clearing connection problems, and the order and timing of the steps is important to success:

1) turn off the Xbox and unplug the power supply cord from the back of the Xbox then

2) unplug power from the router (Some folks have a combination modem-router AKA 'gateway' or only use a modem with no router. If either, skip steps 3 & 6).

3) unplug power from the modem.

4) Wait at least 5 minutes then replug the modem/gateway power.

5) Wait 'til the light on the front of the modem/gateway which says BROADBAND, ONLINE, READY, CABLE or DSL is on solid (not flashing), then plug in the router. If you have a gateway instead of a modem and router or a modem with no router, then when that light says it's ready, skip to step 7.

6) Wait until the WiFi light on the router is on; you may or may not use WiFi, but it's still a good indicator your router is finished booting up.

7) Plug in and turn on the Xbox.  If the problem persists, please send us the info we need  so we may work on this further:

How many Xboxen do you have connected?

What Country/State/Province do you live in?

If Wireless, are you using a white or black external adapter, or an internal (Xbox 360S) adapter?

Things you have tried:

If wireless, is there a wireless stereo headset module plugged into the Xbox, like a TurtleBeach or MadKatz?

If so, please remove it from the Xbox and retry connecting.

If not wireless, please replace the ethernet cable which connects the Xbox to your router, modem or gateway.
