    If you have strict, I'm guessing you are behind a router.

    To get it to be open you will either need to enable UPnP on the router if it supports it or look around the web for the ports you need to open.

    They are 3074 and 88 which should be forwarded to your 360's IP address.

    Hmm my NAT says moderate, would that explain me getting bad lag in PES and FIFA?

    Says on xbox site NAT has nothing to do with lag but can cause problems with head set and finding/getting into games

    Emmm, I don't know how to use your modem. It might tell you how to do port forwarding in the manual.

    If it does forward ports 3074 and 88 to your Xbox 360s IP address :-D.

    If you can find an online version of the manual I could probably give you a help.

    Yeah, I have open NAT too and found that I couldn't play against most people and lag has nothing to do with open NAT or not, it's simply how long it takes for the data to be sent from your 360 to your opponents. Nothing anyone can do about that.

    UPnP is something different. It lets your Xbox set up the router itself when it connects.

    Your router will either support it or not and will only have an option to enable or disable it.

    Port 88 is needs to be UDP and 3074 needs to be forwarded as both.

    My NAT is open, but still i can't invite friends to a game. And when i try to play a game against someone who made a custom match it always says the match room no longer exists, yet it is still there. Why don't they just make lobbies like PES5 on ps2, it's a shame.

    yea the online mode on the 360 isnt working. I read in an other thread that konami is working on it. But its a disgrace that konami isnt putting an official message on their site about this problem. Now we just have to wait and hope.
