      NAT settings using 2 XBOXs

      i have an extremely annoying problem.
      I have an XBOX and so does my son.
      If i do the router reset/run xbox network test, i get my NAT set to open.
      My sons xbox is then on a strict NAT.
      If i re boot the router then run tests on my sons xbox first he gets open NAT and i get Strict.
      Bottom line - we cant both get open NAT - why?????
      My xbox is on wireless connection, his is hard wired to router.
      any theories/solutions welcome

      Re: NAT settings using 2 XBOXs

      I don't think any of the Sky routers support 2 open NATs.

      Have a look at this FAQ from the Xbox site - there is a lot of good info on that site by the way -
      The Unofficial Guide To Live : Xbox Live Two Xboxes one router Internet connection

      Re: NAT settings using 2 XBOXs

      Hi, if you check this forum link it confirms that the Sky routers don't allow 2 open NATS.
      Getting your V1 and V2 router passwords - the safe way

      Unfortunately the easiest way round it seems to be to use the forum link to get your password and then buy one of the recommended routers. I bought the D-link 2640B and now have a really good wirelss signal and 2 open NATS.
