Starting to get a little annoyed here, I follow instructions to go to the Router/Gateway page and open ports vital to xbox live, and well it didnt solve a thing as my NAT type is still strict and now I'm limited to the amount of game servers I can join on various game titles. Help would be appreciated, and btw i'm running my Xbox through an ethernet cable that connects to my computer which is running wirelessly from the Gateway which is in the living room. This cannot be changed unless I can get techs out here to change where the Gateway can be connected as the only room the Gateway can plug into and get access from AT&T is that main room. Or I buy a really long unneeded ethernet cord to run from the one side of the house to the other plugging in my Xbox directly to the Gateway.

How are you getting the computer to route the packets between your XBOX and your RG? Do you have ICS set up? Does your computer have firewall software? Have you set it to not block the ports?

Just wanted to check in with you to see how it was going? I've ran into this issue before, and my suggestions would be to try to set your computer you are using to wireless connect your Xbox to DMZ mode in our router. If that still does not work, then you may need to either get another router and attach it to ours, and set it up with uPNP enabled, but that might not be the issue because it could be a problem with the connection between the computer and the Xbox. Finally, the other option would be the one suggested earlier, with running a direct Ethernet cable to the Xbox.
