    OK so heres the story. I have a 2in1 Modem and Wireless Router (Netgear CG3101D), I am running an ethernet cable off of that into a WIRED Linksys router (BEFSR41) in another room. I then want to run an ethernet cable from the wired linksys router into an xbox 360. However I just cant get the xbox to work with an OPEN NAT setting. I have tried opening the ports on the 2in1 router/modem and on the linksys router and turning uPnP on on both of them and also DMZ relative to a static IP that I set for the xbox.

    I have also tested the xbox directly into the 2in1 router/modem and it works fine with an OPEN NAT so i know its definitely something to do with the wired router.

    Does anyone have a slight clue about how to go about fixing this?

    Thanks, Steve.

    My only assumption is that its not liking the two routers linked together. Have you tried port forwarding for just 1 router rather than both?
