NAT type D:

Hey guys. So I've started playing cod since BO2 came out. And my internet is quite fast. However, I have a strict NAT type and already have spent the past year looking for a way to "open" it. I've settled by playing via "Join game in progress." This was the only way I could play: By connecting to someone in a game or lobby. However it only works with people who have Moderate or Open NAT types. D: . If you have an Open NAT type (preffered ;) please add me as a Friend so i can join your games. (If you are wondering if this will make you laggier. Don't worry, because I will still be using my internet to join the games, I just need your connection as...sort of a gateway to the game :)

If you are online for long periods of time, or play a lot. Please add me as a friend :) When i join your games, I wont bug you with questions. Infact! You wont even know I'm there :D

My NAT goes from open to moderate for no apparent reason every time I boot the game up it's different.

^^ Same here. It'll be open for a few days, then moderate an d then back to open. Bipolar NAT, honestly.

   I have an ethernet hub before my router. One run goes to the router and one straight to the console.

 

  Without going through the router you dont have to worry about any of that .............. no nat settings, no port forwarding or dmzs etc.

 

   Not everyone can do this since many isps have a modem/router combo, but you can pick up a hub rather cheap and it eliminates a lot of the questions about your own connection. There are still other things to look at as far as connection quality goes but its an easy fix for some of it.

I have an Ethernet hub from linksys and have not used it since blops2 early on. Maybe I will set it up tonight. I feel as if I get less speed but want my 360 to have an Ethernet connection also.

With Verizon Fios I can not do that TOG. They run an optical cable into your WiFi router from the street connection. No true hardline to my Xboxes unless I go from my router to hub.

  I know my inlaws have dsl through att and they have a combo setup. I imagine many of the isps are like that.

   No sense in putting it after the router though, as the purpose is to eliminate the router and all its security features. It would only be possible for those who have a separate modem and router.

What gets me is how in the cod ghost game my Nat is open but shows moderate for the 360 and x1. Funny. Soon guess I will be going to staples tomorrow and pick another 25 ft Ethernet wire. I would go now but it  is freezing outside. Gotta do some stapling of old wires anyway so I'll get that out of the way right now.

might be the level of service you have,  many of them show you need to pay this much to do these things online. Sort of an add thing to get you to buy the bigger plans. Yet some take it serious, if your not on the high plan that says online games under it, they wont open it.

Like getting Port 25 open, so you can use your own domains for a mail client. Its always an hr phone call to get bumped to top tier service that knows what I need and doesn't try and read me directions to set up mail.

Mine does this to.  I am actually playing on the Xbox One, but for some odd reason mine said Open at first, then Moderate the next time I logged on.  Also, I had the Xbox One check the internet connection and it said itself that my NAT was Open.  The game when I load it says Moderate.

TOG I have a linksys 10/100 5-port workgroup switch model ezxs55w. Not a hub. Just did some research on it while I was away a bit and thank God I got this thing back in my blops1 days for like 20 bucks. It has great reviews from researchers and consumers. Gonna set it up right now.
