    So I'm trying to set my NAT from moderate to open. I've already figured out how to do this and I know what ports I need to use. But, for some of the ports it says I need to chose both UDP and TCP. There is no option for that. Only one or the other. Also, what is the private IP address? Where can I find that? And what do I type in for private ports? The same numbers or do I leave it blank?

    I also have another question, all of a sudden I can't connect to my friend's Xbox Live parties. It says 'Cant connect to Xbox Live Party.' this is strange because this recently just started happening and it's hardly ever happened before. When I try to join his games or when he tries to join mine we get the message 'Game session not avaliable' when he is in a party with someone else that's party leader and invites me I can connect without any problems. His NAT is set to open. I'm thinking maybe because mine is moderate it's effecting it somehow. When I check the connection on XBL it doesn't give me the NAT error message. But when I'm in a lobby on COD before I pick what I want to do at the bottom it says NAT Type: Moderate. It's hardly ever given me a problem before but I would like to set it to open now. We've both reset our routers and modems but it's still giving us this problem. And it's only with him, not any of my other friends. Any help?

    Follow these steps:
    On Xbox 360:
    1) Press guide button
    2) Go to system settings
    3) Go to network settings
    4) push "x" on your network you are connected to
    5) manually assign an IP (192.168.2.xxx), Subnet mask Default Gateway Primary DNS Secondary DNS
    6) save setting, but leave Xbox on

    On computer:
    1) open internet browser
    2) in address bar type (I believe that is what the default gateway is for Belkin)
    3) Go to advanced setup, then DMZ hosting (this may be wrong because I don't know your model number)
    4) Enter the IP address you manually assigned to the Xbox 360 (By the way this is a private IP, all IP addresses within your network are private, mine is 192.168.0.x
    5) Apply and close

    You are done, this removes all restrictions to your Xbox 360's internet connection by creating a demilitarized zone, or DMZ host.
