Does anyone know how to do this. I was on xbox live and I got a connection error. After that my Nat type switched to strict. I can't figure out how to change the Nat type on the xfinity router. Please help!!!
Xbox Live does a lot of stupid things, including misnaming things. Their concept of "open NAT" has nothing to do with actual NAT type, but rather whether your firewall allows incoming connections on certain ports, like port 88 and 3074. So you can just forward those ports to shut it up, but in most cases these are completely unnecessary. But they are needed in some situations (particularly if you are hosting a game). Some games also require other ports, most as outgoing only and require no port forwarding, but again, if you are hosting a game, you must forward those ports.
