My NAT is set to strict and I cannot change it. I'm using a Netgear WNDR3300 router with Windstream service provider.
Earlier, when I changed my NAT in my router to Open, I ran the Xbox LIVE test and it said my NAT was open. I started playing games, but noticed that I was still having trouble connecting to some games. I re-tested LIVE and it said I had a Strict NAT. Now when I perform the LIVE test, it will say I have an Open NAT the first one or two times, but if I keep testing a 3rd time it will always say Strict. How does this happen when I don't change anything on my router?
Here's what I've done so far:
-Gave my computer a static IP address and forwarded ports (88 and 3074) to my X360
-Changed NAT settings in my router to open
I have no idea what to do and am extremely frustrated! Also I am connecting to the Dualband-N network, but I get the same results if I connect to G, also.
Any help would be appreciated.
