So now I can't get rid of a Strict NAT on my XBox - this blows! I've even forwarded the appropriate ports, etc.
The computers run lightning fast and I can still technically get the XBox online - I'm just having a terrible time in lobbies.
I'm thinking we've overloaded my little old router and it simply can't handle the traffic.
So... it looks like I'm getting a new router, too!
I've managed to make this simple life cycle replacement into a home entertainment shopping fest. I should feel bad for spending my kids' college tuition savings, I know. But I don't. Does that make me evil?
I have the same TV. I also have newer ones, but the Sony is still my favorite to watch TV on and play games since there is no screen lag. I think its around 175lb.
Just curious what your router is. I had a linksys e1000 or something like that and I could not get my NAT open at all. I found a lot of people have the same problem with that router.
I'm at work now but I'm pretty sure it's a Netgear wgt624v3. Picture looks the same and the model sounds right.
It's actually served me pretty well for a number of years now (can't remember when I got it).
We did move everything (computers, TV, modem, router, etc.) so I suppose my problem could be mechanical (I damaged it somehow) but I suspect I'm just asking too much of it these days. Really, though, on paper I was never supposed to have to worry about NAT since Universal Plug and Play has always been enabled on this thing - it wasn't supposed to be necessary to forward ports, etc. But I can't say I'm surprised that didn't work out...
I'm hoping it gets fixed with a new router. If not, then at least I'll have a cool, wicked powerful new router.
