I have an Airport Extreme.

Can someone help me change my strict NAT setting on Xbox Live? I can no longer connect to any game lobby in Modern Warfare 2.

I restarted the Airport Extreme but to no avail

Thanks

I don't know anything about the Airport Extreme but the problem you are having has to do with the ports that need to be forwarded. There are several different ways you can fix this. You either need to use port forwarding to open the ports necessary for Xbox live or you can setup your Xbox on DMZ settings or if the AE supports UPnP (universal plug and play) you need to enable that.

How would I do this?

I actually used my external modem and had to change those settings to open up the correct port. My airport hasn't really bothered anything.
