      Open NAT

      I'm having an error with my Xbox 360, I am currently bridge connecting with my Mac, when I perform the Xbox LIVE connection test it passes but I get the warning:




      It's really annoying me now, I have tried port forwarding, DMZ, turning UPnP on, restarted router, LAN IP setup and even turning my Mac's firewall off. But this does not fix the issue that I am having with my console.

      I want to set my router's NAT setting from 'Moderate' to 'Open'.

      It could be your bridge connection that is causing the problem. Why don't you try connecting directly to the router by ethernet. If you were hoping to use it wirelessly, I don't think you will get a good result, even if you overcome the moderate problem. It could be the wireless that is the problem.

      On my sisters Xbox 360 that uses the wireless adapter it works fine, so maybe I'll just have to shell out some cash for one of them.

      Are you bridging to a PC and using its wireless? If you are, the OP could do with knowing how you did it.

      so maybe I'll just have to shell out some cash for one of them.
      You would be better investing in a pair of Homeplugs and conecting by ethernet.

      By the way, is you sister connected to the same router as you? If so, it is a different problem in that the Sky routers will not handle double Open NAT.

      Have a look at this article, it may give you some idea of what is required.-
      The Unofficial Guide To Xbox Live : Xbox Live Two Xboxes one router Internet connection

      The best way is to get a router that supports double open NAT.

      I have moved this thread to the Gaming Section where you may get some more comments.

      Re: Open NAT

      Getting another router isn't really an option for me, I have the new Sagem one provided by Sky.
