Dreaded NAT Problem (360 w/ OS10)-Netgear CG81WG v2

I can log onto to play the 360 wirelessly (MN-740 wireless adapter) but my NAT is strict.

I tried both with my Linksys BEFW11S4 v2 router (yes I know it's not compatible but it worked fine last night, besides the strict NAT :) )

I then tried with my CG81WG v2, which IS compatible with live also (which I think is why the Linksys router was working anyway but...)

I also got a strict NAT with the CG81WG v2.

I have Time Warner road runner.

So, is there a quick fix to open my NAT, or do I need to contact my ISP?

Thanks a lot! :)

Help...anyone?

I have turned UPnP on- NAT Strict
I have port forwarded the correct ports- 88 UDP and 3074 UDP and TCP, NAT still stricy
I have also done the correct ports for Halo from portforward, still strict.

EDIT:OK, I did a combination of turning on UPnP, using the ports from portforward.com, and using the ports that are supposed to open your NAT, and it DID open my NAT, but then my connection was extremely slow and was like it was before I forwarded any ports.

:) This is confusing

This is what worked for me:

Portforward the following port:

88 UDP
3074 UPD and TCP

Do this on your router config page and not with the help of the portforwarding website. NAT should not slow your connection down but limit who you can play with. If your problem is a slow connection then it is most likely not your NAT.

Edit: Which router are you using ATM?
