(I apologize if this isn't very coherent, my previous post got erased as I forgot to sign in so I'm annoyed, it was a awesome post! ) Hello there! After many attempts I have been frustrated to high heaven attempting to change my NAT on Xbox Live from Moderate to Open using a ethernet connection to my Macbook. I have the older model 360 without the Wi-Fi. My Router and Modem are too far away for a direct connection and having a cord going throughout the home isn't ideal for the other people living here. I did test the Xbox with a direct connection and it worked with a Open NAT. But It was not my room so I couldn't exactly stay and play. I have all the correct ports forwarded AND triggered(which I just did at the suggestion of xbox.com support) as well as UPnP enabled(I also tried using DMZ) on my router. Still no success. I figure the Macbook is the one that needs tampering with. I have downloaded WaterRoof and messed with the NAT settings on that the other day....still nothing. So I cleared the settings and plan on trying again later. My Xbox settings are as follows: IP Address: 10.0.0.2 Subnet:255.255.255.0 (Same as Macbook) Gateway:10.0.0.1 (Same as Macbook, the static IP Address for the Macbook I believe) DNS settings are my Router's IP addresses. My Router is a Linksys WRT54G2. My Macbook software is Mac OS X 10.5.8. I can play with a Moderate NAT, but I cant download any form of content or title updates. The Dashboard really doesn't pop up the way its supposed to at all. I can't even Redeem Codes! (All this would work with a direct connection to the router though, but I really can't do that long term.) I tried using the IP address of the ports that I am forwarding but that didn't seem to be working. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
