    I have a Linksys WRV200 wireless router as my gateway, connected to a Thompson SpeedTouch ST546 DSL modem. I have an Xbox 360 connected to that router through a Dynex 5 port Ethernet switch. When running the network connectivity test on my Xbox 360, I continue to get a report of strict NAT settings. Now thus far, I have been unable to find the NAT settings for any of the above listed devices, and am wondering if there is a way to change these settings, or if I'm stuck with what I have as of right now. Any help would be appreciated, as I have an Xbox Live tournament coming up, and there is a possibility of disqualification based on how many of the competitors I am able to connect to. In the past, Strict NAT settings have given me problems with connecting to others with anything but open NAT, which means it will most likely be a problem for this tournament as well.

    You will have to determine what ports need to be forwarded and forward them to your xbox.

    The ST546 is a 4-port adsl router, is it running in PPPOE bridge mode? If not you may have double nat going on!

    It's PPoA, if I remember correctly. Also, there's no blanket setting for my Router's NAT settings? I just need to forward the correct ports?
