help with NAT
« on: March 03, 2012, 04:50:09 PM »
hi
do you know anything about the NAT, i play modern warfare 3 and there is always a problem with the NAT, in game it goes from moderate to strict, which can restrict the gaming.

i am using a cisco WAG160Nv2 modem/router has anyone got any ideas on how to fix this
getting it to open would be a great help.
thanks

UPnP which is auto port forwarding should be all you need. Just make sure it is enabled in the router.

Also lets make sure you are not behind 2 routers.

Login into the router and go to the status page. There you will see the internet IP. Does it match the IP on this page?
