How To Get an Open NAT on the Xbox One for Better Connections

The Xbox One is just over a day old, and for the most part it’s a solid next-gen gaming console. One of its many facets that makes it a worthy addition to your gaming lineup is its robust Xbox Live network, which has been refined for years on the Xbox 360. Chatting with friends, or joining multiplayer and co-op matches efficiently is what made the 360 stand out during the last gen, so one would think that the same environment would be present on the Xbox One. For the most part it is, but just like the 360 it takes a little elbow grease with your network settings to get the best possible environment for chatting and gaming with friends.

This is good information to have out their for people. The issue is that for best results you should have an open NAT. Unfortunately a lot of ISP's are set up so that you end up with a moderate or strict NAT and you have to do set up a static IP and forward ports which is a pain in the butt. I have complained to my ISP for years and they would not change it which left me having to use port forwarding. You can also use port triggering if your modem/gateway/router supports it or in some cases DMZ. It works fine but is a pain in the butt. Once ISP's make the eventual switch to IPv6 from IPv4 the NAT issues will disappear.

Yeah, sounds like a pain. I'm not computer savy so this hurts my brain. Lol.

NAT 3 - Traffic is being blocked by the ISP/Cable/DSL router
NAT 2 - Your cable/DSL modem is connected to a wifi or wired router
NAT 1 - Direct connect from modem to PC or Mac

my primary DNS comes up as 2601:1:9080:b1:cad7:19ff:fed8: d648

how do I enter that?

My secondary is just the 192.168.1.1

yesmynameissumo1040d ago

That primary DNS entry is IPv6. Disable it on your router.

Happy to help! Good luck! Your primary DNS should be the IP of your router (192.168.1.1). The secondary address you could use something like GoogleDNS - 8.8.8.8
