Hello
I have an issue with an Xbox in that the NAT settings keep changing from open to strict randomly from time to time when I log into games online.
I have assigned a static IP to the XBox. I'm using the Technicolour telecom modem. I can assign the MAC address in the game area but I don't know what else to change.
Or maybe I need a different router.
I'm thinking about a Zyxel P2612HW-F1 or thereabouts.
Thanks
Ford

Enabling UPnP should sort this out. If it is going from Open to Strict maybe upnp isn't working properly. Just forward the correct ports to the xbox.
