Opening NAT type on Xbox?

My NAT type on Xbox is on Moderate and the only way I've been able to put it to Open is to turn on DMZ which I don't want to do. Can anyone please provide me with a simple solution? Thanks!

thats an interesting problem. Unfortunately we here would need a little more to go on. So far we can't even tell if your with Bell or not.

Yes I'm with Bell. My router model is 2701HG-G. Not sure if that's helpful but that's some more information for you.

Ok, thats a start.

Is that the only network device between your xbox and the internet or do you have your own router wired into the mix also?

I only have 1 router used for all devices in my house if that's what you mean.

So I guess the next thing to consider, is this new and abnormal behavior for your setup or has it always functioned like this from day one?

Try reseting the xbox network settings to factory defaults and reconnecting?

this link seems to suggest enabling or disabling UPnP in your router to attempt to solve the problem.

Do you have your Bell b1 id and password. otherwise known as your PPPoE credentials?

According to that video the xbox seems to have the ability to establish a PPPoE session right in the xbox software. Have you attempted to put your Bell internet B1 id and password in those fields to attempt to get a public ip directly to your xbox?

edit: see the 50 second mark in that video

I've been cruising this forum for a while and to best of my memory, I dont recall this been a common problem. Considering the 2701HG-G and the xbox are both a common component in Bell households, I'm leaning towards this being an issue with your specific setup.

edit: if you have your Bell PPPoE credentials, you could also factory reset the 2wire modem and re-run the initial activation site, better know as the 'Bell Walled Garden'. You would need to run this from your computer browser.

Do you know how to change my UPnP settings? I have no idea what that even is...

Those are the ports used by the xbox 360:

•Port 88 (UDP)

•Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)

•Port 53 (UDP and TCP)

•Port 80 (TCP)

You have to go in your router configuration menus, and route these ports to the ip address of your xbox 360.

I've never known how to do that, the guides I looked at didn't have the different layout so it was confusing.

Does anyone know if the 53 and 80 need to be directed to the Xbox in NAT? Right now, I have the Xbox and my web/email servers behind an Astaro firewall and have created in-bound NATs for 3074 and 88 to the Xbox, but in-bound 53 and 80 would mess up a lot of things. Thoughts?

If you want to make-it simple, it's not like the xbox can be attacked by a virus, you can set your xbox in dmz.

Just use a router that supports uPNP.
