Lately on COD MW2 my NAT settings have been changed to strict, preventing me from joining some private chats, COD sessions, XBOX Live parties and more. I've checked the Internet and everyone has created technologically nerdish advanced tutorials that make no sense to me. Can anyone explain in an idiot proof way how to change NAT settings to open.

DMZ = Demilitarized Zone.

Essentially it means assigning your XBOX a static IP address and then going into your modem's settings (via web-browser or management software) and placing that static IP address outside of all security features of your modem.
Essentially your console would be left hanging in the breeze, completely open to the internet and free of any restrictions of your security setup.

If re-booting the modem does the trick then this might be the simple solution, however setting up a solid DMZ is handy for the long-term.

It's good to be aware of the possibility of IP conflict tho, so if you do set up your DMZ, set your XBOX to have a static IP that is HIGH in the range... that way if someone boots on a laptop or iPhone etc under dynamic ip addressing, they won't get assigned the IP you've set for the XBOX.

same thing happens to me all the time on PS3. I just exit to the main menu and reconnect to the server. Sometimes that wont work so you have to reset your modem.

I kinda understand now. This is my guess: pls correct me if I'm wrong but my XBOX is set to an IP adress that is given to any system that randomly joins my home network. Yet I can change it to have it's own personal IP adress with it's own personal settings??? Was that about right??? What is the result of IP conflict anyway, my PC keeps telling me that it is happening in my home network yet nothing really happens...

I'm running a server on my network as the DMZ and Port Forwarding to my XBox instead.

DMZ should immediately fix anything (unless you're connected via ICS)
