      2x xbox 360 open nats?

      im trying to get "open" nats to 2 xbox 360s on my network. Ive tried various firmware versions, DMZ, unp, port forwarding etc but the best I can get is 1x open & 1x moderate. I understand the 834gt is one of the many not capable of giving both 360s open nats. I was thinking of dumping the sky router and getting a Netgear WGT624 108Mbps Super G Broadband Wireless Router which is suppose to support 2 360s. Is anyone running one of these or run a non sky router longterm without any problems from sky as its in breach of the T&Cs? Anyone managed to get 2 360s running with open nat to each with the sky router?

      is there a speciofic reason for open nats to both boxes as i've never had a problem with the online aspect of the 360 with the sky router in any of its NAT settings.

      Re: 2x xbox 360 open nats?

      I too have the same problem. I have two xbox360's, a Sky "netgear" router and it will only allow one on an Open NAT and the other remains Strict. Sky refused to help stating they donot support the 360, Netgear refused to help stating the router was owned by Sky so they couldn't offer technical assistance so where do you go from here. Has anyone a solution other than change internet provider.

      Are you using 1 wired and 1 wirless or both wired, as i am having the same problem and want to change to a router that supports 2 wired 360's on one connection.

      Thumbs up Re: 2x xbox 360 open nats?

      Nice one for the link to the DSL2640B Router. I have just ordered one, as I have the same issue with 2 xbox's.
      Hopefully it should come tomorrow, or first thing tuesday

      SKY nned to read these posts and make a new firmware to support 2 xbox's and open nat.

      I take it, the new 2640B sorts it all out with UPNP...yes?

      I don't really like enabling that, but things have to work

      yep upnp sorts it all no problem :-) i even had 4 xbox 360s all with open nat over the weekend! its been connected no 600 hours with not 1 drop of adsl or wireless, its spot on, dont worry about the upnp security this was only a issue on early versions of windows xp, nothing to do with routers, cheers

      Hi Jamiem,

      Could you please tell me how you got 2 open nats?
      I have both xbox's working with this new router, but both are strict.
      I have UPNP enabled, Firewall enabled, and have even opened ports to one of the xbox's and I always get strict NAT.

      EDIT: Have any of you managed to set up MAC Address access lists?

      Cheers
