Xbox 360 connect to laptop getting a Moderate Nat
« on: November 17, 2007, 01:42:52 PM »
Here is my problem I have a Xbox 360 connected to my laptop the laptop is connected to my linksys  router wireless and I am using ICS (internet connection sharing)  to get internet to my xbox.

I have a moderate nat setting on my xbox because of this I cannot play in the same game as my friend who is hard wired to the linksys router in the house.

Can anyone tell me how to configure my laptop so My xbox will not get the moderate nat setting.

F.Y.I  the problem is not in the router I have been down that path for many many many hours in phone calls to xbox and linksys.  The router is fine it has something to do with the ICS and my lap top.

I don't know anywhere else to go or anyone else to ask please help. ???

Thank you,

    Read this. Apparently you can't get an "Open" status using ICS. The site explains how to setup bridging instead of ICS.
