    Hi all.

    This forum is awesome some really helpful people got me passed the DNS setting on xbox live using my Macs wireless connection for the 360

    But someone said i needed to forward some ports as my NAT is Strict and it wont allow me to sign in and i dont know how to do it!
    I've tried googling and there some sites that help but i still dont understand

    my Mac Airport IP is /
    My MAc ethernet is
    My 360 settings are

    What Ip address do i forward to? on the routerhelp thing it only allows you to but a digit/s on the end of 192.168.2. but my ethernet and 360 is different?

    Really confused! :rolleyes:

    Tried searching for hours today still no luck :(

    basically all my settings are

    Mac Eth IP:
    Mac wireless:

    360 Ip:

    As mentioned passes the tests but NAT is strict

    I've been on and it says to put the different ports in the virtual servers.... but.... when I do that

    1) port 88 wont open as the belkin router is using it (on a site it says open 87 and 89 instead)
    2) what static ip do i put it to it sounds like on other sites you put it it your 360's ip but i cant as it only gives the option 192.168.2.xx
    where as mine is and if i change it to like 192.168.2."20" or any other field in fact, the internet wont work / or i get IP problems

    PLEASE help before i go insane and break up my marriage through neglect!
