Modern Warfare 2 NAT Stick/Moderate


Prominent Member
Trying to get this sorted for a friend, He has a Belkin N F5D8232-4 Wireless router I believe and in MW2 the settings are generally moderate, Sometimes even strict and very rarely open, What would be the best way to configure it so that it is open? Note there are 2 xbox's but most times only one is at use at a time, when they other is on one is normally strict and the other moderate, Im getting bored of not being able to play online with him and beat his ass:clap:

Only thing Port Forwarding did was if it was open, it became moderate and wouldn't change, Also I tried that for my and my nat is always open, but once I port forwarded it went to moderate too

I spent many hours trying to sort out NAT issues, I tried forwarding ports and DMZ's in every possible combination with no luck.
In the end it was a firmware update and disabling the 'port scan and DOS protection' option that did it.
