Open NAT with Thomson (Speedtouch) TG585 v7 Router

So I've got my broadband connection set up and Xbox live is working at last. However, when my friends try to party up with me, it doesn't work. Tested connection, points towards a strict NAT. So I need an open NAT and after countless hours searching, I've tried portforwarding and dropping firewalls but to no avail.

It's a Thomson/Spedtouch TG585 v7 router, my PC connects to it wirelessly and my 360 connects by LAN to the PC. PC uses XP.

Any questions/things I've not added that I need to.... just ask!

Thanks

    It's just a matter of turning the NAT settings from "Strict" or "Medium" to "Open". You have the same problem as me on the same modem. I PM an expert on the modem about this problem and waiting to hear back from him. I'll let you know if he solves the problem.

First, try adding a wireless card to the Xbox, run the wireless off of the router OR if you have multiple connections (broadband, should be an "In" port, and several "Out" ports) Try connecting your PC and you Xbox through the "Out" ports, with the cable modem cord hooked into the "In" port...

    On the thomson tgt585 v7 on the configuration screen select custom setup rather then default this enables no NAT (open). Hope this helps.

    Thanks

How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?



Hi,

Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

  • 2

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

  • 6

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.

    Do you have a DMZ on this router. If you turn on the DMZ and set your ip address for the xbox as your DMZ it may/may not work, but it is worth a shot. What that does is open up anything going to your xbox 360 so there should be no firewall between the router and the xbox.
