any idea why this is happening i cant seem to figure it out or find the answer anywhere
Hardwired/wireless makes no different to NAT its all about your router settings
Select your router (hopefully its there) then select Xbox Live 360 and there should be instructions..
you can either forward the ports as listed above or you can set your router up with a dmz which opens all ports to the xbox which is fairly simple to do just give the the same ip adress as the one you put into your xbox for eg dmz 192.168.1.10 xbox ip address set manualy in the network setting to the same 192.168.1.10 works every time. (nearly)
hope that helps
hi thanks for your responses
Sorry if i didnt make this clear but my 360 is hardwired into the wall socket, i don't have a router of any kind, so im bemused as to why it said moderate, tried it earlier but now it says strict
What do you mean by hard wired into the wall socket? And how are you connected to the net? ADSL or Cable? There must be some kind of modem or router involved somewhere along the line.
i was tired of forwarding ports on my old dsl router (cisco 837), i picked up a new netgear 834GT and I havent looked back
As long as you have upnp enabled you shouldnt need to forward any ports.
I have played many 360 games now, all with working voice chat and not forwarded a single port
