How to fix xbox nat type?

I have a 2wire 2701hg-b built in wifi I tried opening ports but I don't think im doing it right. Also sometimes the nat type will be open but later will turn back to moderate. any help would be great.

Here is the proper method to open ports on the 2Wire routers for the XBox 360.  This should give you an open NAT.

 

1. Open a web browser, browse to the URL of your U-Verse® Residential Gateway (usually http://192.168.1.254).
2. Click the Settings tab at the top.
3. Click the Firewall label in the second row of tabs.
4. Click the Applications, Pinholes, and DMZ label in the third row of tabs.
5. Click on your XBox 360 under section (1).  You will probably have to identify it by its IP address.
6. Click the Allow Individual Applications button under section (2).
7. Click Add a New User-Defined Application.
8. Type "XBox 360 Live" in the Application Profile Name field.
9. Select TCP for the protocol.
10. Type 3074 in the Port From and Port To fields.
11. Leave the Protocol Timeout field blank.
12. Leave the Map to Host Port field blank.
13. Do not select anything in the Application Type pull-down.
14. Click the Add to List button.
15. Select UDP for the protocol.
16. Type 3074 in the Port From and Port To fields.
17. Leave the Protocol Timeout field blank.
18. Leave the Map to Host Port field blank.
19. Do not select anything in the Application Type pull-down.
20. Click the Add to List button.
21. Select UDP for the protocol.
22. Type 88 in the Port From and Port To fields.
23. Leave the Protocol Timeout field blank.
24. Leave the Map to Host Port field blank.
25. Do not select anything in the Application Type pull-down.
26. Click the Add to List button.
27. Click the Back button.
28. Reselect your XBox 360 under section (1).  You will probably have to identify it by its IP address.
29. Click the Allow Individual Applications button under section (2).
30. Click "XBox 360 Live" in the Application list.
31. Click the Add button.  XBox 360 Live will now be listed in the Hosted Applications list.
32. Click the Save button at the bottom.

 

Now reboot your XBox 360, you should have an open NAT type.
