    Hi people,

    Having a bit of trouble getting Modern Warfare 2 running on Xbox live.

    My set up is...

    BT Home Hub 2.0 wirelessly supplying my iMac with connection. I then have a ethernet cable running from the iMac feeding the internet connection to power Xbox Live. Previously this has worked flawlessly until... I try and play Modern Warfare 2. Currently when in the game screen it tells me that my 'NAT type is STRICT'. This isn't the case on my PS3 which is wireless where my NAT type is OPEN.

    I've trolled the internet trying to find a solution. Everything I try doesn't work. I'm starting to think maybe it's got something to do with the iMac sharing the connection maybe?

    I've tried BT but they expect me to pay £8 a month (with a minimum subscription of 12 months) to get the answer.

    Any idea's?

    Thanks in advance!

    How far is the XBox from the Home Hub? it may be worth getting some plug socket adaptors or a longer CAT5e/CAT6 cable..
