    Strict NAT on xbox

    I have been playing xbox live for about a year through a new BT homehub router (Wired) and i have always had an open NAT. For the last couple of days on COD:MW2 where it says what your NAT is, it has changed to strict and i cant search for matches unless a friend invites me and i can play fine.

    How do i change it to open and has this happened to anyone else?

    Ta,

    demilitarized zone, where you provide an IP with full connectivity through a WAN connection without any security measures basically.

    Or just use the proper securer way UPNP with DHCP

    If you upgraded firmware in last week or if it does it auto like some of the o2 boxes then either it broke functionality or you changed some settings log into router turn on upnp and use dhcp in router (apply/ok/save) and auto settings on 360 for both ip and dns.
