    Another Xbox query..

    OK, got the wireless jigger working, but now the Xbox is asking for a NAT code?

    Any ideas what that is? Seems my boy cant talk to anybody on Xbox live now

    NAT = Network address translation, which in theory if your using a router you shouldnt need to use that (and yes I didnt say that on msn before, but my brain was asleep then my bad )

    I kinda had this problem on my old man's xbox 360 I assume that's what your using, basically it's possible for numours reasons your xbox has changed it's IP address (sometimes happens what it's set for automatic)

    Options, let the xbox 360 search for the settings again, to do this turn xbox on with no game on scroll all the way to the right, then network settings, then test xbox live settings, that should also give you the status of your NAT. Open is Good, Moderate or Severe is obviously bad!

    If you do have a router sometimes it may block one of the xbox's ports it uses to talk to the internet, so log in to your router, make sure your xbox IP is in the range of the router (depending on your router it should show a range of IP's it'll accept on the main page) and if you know how add ports 88 and 3074 which will open up the NAT on your xbox.

    See http://portforward.com/routers.htm to help you open your ports on your router.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Tinker, I will get on the case now. It seems to let him talk to some people on the live thing, but not all of his 'usual' crew?
