I just got a new Xbox 360 and I was advised to get the NAT type on the router to set it as open. I also have a PS3 and was told the same thing before. In opening the NAT, should I do the same thing when the PS3 was configured?

Thanks.

To connect the Xbox to your router, you have to open the NAT (Network Address Translation) of the router. You have to assign a static IP to your Xbox. Access the setup page of your Xbox. Go to,
My Xbox >>>> System Settings >>>> Network Systems.
The IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway of the Xbox should be synchronized with the router.

Once you have assigned an IP address to your Xbox, open the setup page of your router. Go to Applications and Gaming tab and click on Single Port Forwarding. Enter the IP address of your Xbox and enter port 3074 for internal and external ports.

The answer would be “Yes”, you have to set your router’s NAT to open for your Xbox 360. The main difference is that you are going to use a different port for you Xbox that is port 3074. I am not sure if you have assigned static IP on the PS3 which needs to be done on your Xbox. Remember that the newer router you have, the more the tight it is when it comes to security.

To connect the Xbox to your router, you have to open the NAT (Network Address Translation) of the router. You have to assign a static IP to your Xbox. Access the set-up page of your Xbox. Go to,

 My Xbox >>>> System Settings >>>> Network Systems. Set the IP Settings to Manual. The IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS of the Xbox should be synchronized with the router.

Once you have assigned an IP address to your Xbox, open the setup page of your router. Go to Applications and Gaming tab and click on Single Port Forwarding. Enter the IP address of your Xbox and enter port 3074 for internal and external ports.

If it doesn't work, you might need to adjust the router's MTU size to 1365. Note also that some modem NAT capabilities won’t allow your Xbox 360 to connect online through your router. If your modem  gives a private address such as 192.168.3.102, contact your ISP and let them disable the NAT of the modem.( I guess this won’t be applicable to you on your end since you mentioned that you got your PS3 working, right?)
