Re: How to change Nat setting on valet so Xbox can function properly

Open an Internet Explorer browser page on your wired computer(desktop). In the address bar type - 192.168.1.1 and press Enter...Leave Username blank & in Password use admin in lower case... 

If you have installed the router using Cisco connect software then the wireless network key will be the password of the router.


On the set-up tab change the MTU Size to 1365 and click Save Settings...
Click on "Administration" tab and disable the option UPnP and click Save Settings...
Click on "Applications and Gaming" tab and then click on "Port Range Forwarding" sub-tab...

 

1) On the first line in Application box type in ABC, in the start box type in 53 and End box type in 3074, leave the protocol as both and under ip address type in 192.168.1.20 and check the enable box, click Save Settings once done...

2) Once you return to the set up page click on the Security tab and uncheck Block Anonymous Internet Requests and click on Save Settings...

3)Click on the Status tab and take note of DNS1 and DNS2 Addresses...

4) Go to the XBox Network Settings and IP Address Settings and select manual IP Settings and assign the following on your Xbox IP Address :- 192.168.1.20, Subnet Mask :- 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway :-192.168.1.1...

5) Also assign the DNS Addresses on the Xbox Use DNS1 and DNS2 Addresses you took note off of the router status tab as Primary DNS & Secondary DNS for the xbox...

6) Turn off your modem, router, and Xbox... Wait for a minute...

7) Plug the modem power first, wait for another minute and plug the router power cable, wait another minute and turn on the Xbox and test it... It will connect...

What if you don't have a desktop?

 

 

Can you just plug your laptop in and do it then unplug your laptop and it should be fine?

if the xbox is a wireless gaming console , there's no need to set static IP anymore . just connect to the network , it should grab the IP address of the router. just follow these steps to open the NAT

  • do port triggering 53-80-88-3074
  • disable UPNP 

this should work for you

What if you require uPNP for all the other DLNA compliant devices on the network (Blue ray players, network Hard drive, TV, AV Receiver, Wireless Picture frames, etc

What if you have two xboxs with a switch connecting them to the router?  Will that make a difference?
