XBOX trouble NAT settings on moderate

we received a new router from Verizon and when I installed it and my son logged into his XBOX it said he can use online but not all services would work because the NAT setting is on moderate.

Any ideas what I need to do in order to change this? I am not very network savvy but can follow directions L)

I had this problem...There are 2 ways to fix (for me). It drove me nuts...
The easy fix for me was Disabling the IGMP Proxy and enabling UPNP.It also fixed an issue I had with my IPADS and ITUNES wifi detection.
Adding a Static IP also worked, but there were extra steps.

1. One Option is to enable UPNP and disable the IMGP Proxy in the router
Go to »192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=900
Make sure both Check boxes are ticked..and select "Publish only the main WAN.." in the dropdown ...
Click Apply

go to »192.168.1.1/index.cgi?active_page=6059
Under IGMP Proxy (Enable/Disable) select DISABLED
Apply

Its always a good idea to restart your XBOX after this change.

OR

2. Assign a static IP to the XBOX in the Router:
Advanced - IP Address Distribution - Connection List
Look for the XBOX and click on it
Check Static Lease Type - Apply

If your XBOX is not listed in the Connection List
Click on NEW STATIC CONNECTION
Give it an IP - Example 192.168.1.150 (the last number needs to be between 2 and 254....look though the connection list and assign a number that is not used.
Enter in the MAC address (can be received via the XBOX network settings pages).

Now go to FIREWALL SETTINGS in your router
Click on PORT FORWARDING
Select the IP Address from the drop down box
Select XBOX from teh APPLICATION dropdown.
Click Add.

That should open the necessary ports.
REstart your XBOX after this as well

Aside from adding the Port FOrward Rule..you could put the XBOX static IP into the DMZ HOST - Under Firewall Settings...

Im against the DMZ as it opens every port..but it works.

I really hope this helps..I know exactly what your son went through.

Ziggy,
How did this work out for you? I know that there was a huge XBOX Live outage last night (Saturday), so it probably wasn't a good time to test, but I'm curious how it looks now..
