Windows 7: GFWL Strict NAT

GFWL Strict NAT

Hey guys,

I'm having big issues with Games for Windows - LIVE and online gaming. It always says Strict. I guess I've tried a few things, but the only thing that has worked for me is to place my computer under the DMZ. Help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Slasher

I am no expert but I had that problem with Xbox live. The router is the culprit. I switched to a D-Link DR 655 and have "open" nat now.

I doubt my router would be the culprit... I have a Belkin Wireless N router though.

When it comes to NAT, it is all about the router.

I have a Belkin F5D8631-4 v3 router...

EDIT: Just some more info about the problem... I am using Wi-Fi. The in-game GFWL client Network Information reports that my NAT Type is Strict, and that UPnP is available, but not used.

you need to log onto the router (192.168.2.1) and just click submit as belkin routers don't come with default passwords or login names.

then you need to try and find virtual servers, then enter these ports in the port forwarding section
Port 88 (UDP)
Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
Port 80 (TCP)

then enter your IP address as displayed on your network settings (should be something like 192.168.2.5 or something to that effect), then save and exit.

Then you'll need to find an option on the router to turn on uPnP, this will enable GFWL to send the ports required to your router as and when they are needed and set it up for you.

UPnP is already on. GFWL says in the Network Information (ingame) that UPnP is on, but not being used.

DMZ pool your IP address and use 3rd party firewall software then, sounds like you may have a faulty router :-/
