Solved help please to open my routers NAT

Specs: Windows 7 home service pack 1
Hi, could someone please help guide me through the process of opening my NAT. I'm using a Thomson Technicolor 587nV3. I need to change my NAT status from strict to open. So I can play MW3 online and connect to my friends online games and so I can host multiplayer matches. I have windows 7 laptop to do any of the steps required. Please can someone help me with this I've googled it over and over but without any solution, I've tried to bind my routers cone through Winscript but without any luck perhaps I done it wrong. Please any help guiding me through this problem of mine will be greatly appreciated.

Thank u Curt R for attempting to help me solve my problem, in the end I continued to google it and found that loading mw2 then quickly inserting mw3 on my ps3 will open my routers NAT so in the end that's what I did n it worked. Thank you 👍

- I'm not familiar with that piece of equipment
- I've never heard of changing NAT status from "strict" to "open" and I just checked my router and it offers nothing like that. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that on any of the other SOHO router's I've used over the years.

So I can play MW3 online and connect to my friends online games

Your router is preventing you from connecting to a game on the internet?

and so I can host multiplayer matches

This should require nothing more than a port forward. Which will require
a) you find out what port the game is played on
b) the LAN IP of the computer that will be running the game in server mode
c) your external IP address

When you have both A & B, go into your router's management interface and create a port forward that looks as follows:

Forward [Port # of game port] to [LAN IP of game server]

Once you've done that remote users should be able to connect to it. They will however need to know your external IP address. To find out what it is, you can google what's my IP and go to their website. Then get that info to your remote users.

If your router isn't capable of doing a simple port forward, I would replace it with something a little easier to work with. One of my favorite brands is Linksys

I have windows 7 laptop

I hope you're not gaming with that. Due to physical limitations a laptop just can't compare to a good desktop for gaming. Take mine for example, aside from all the other bells and whistles, I put 32 GB's of RAM in it. Games, once started, run in RAM so the more you have, the better. Laptops aren't known for the capacity for RAM.

Thank you for your suggestions, I have done those steps with no success in getting an open NAT on ps3 mw3 game still. I'm trying also to bind tne application through TELNET but I'm wondering what TCP line will I need to enter. As I'm using this command...
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=3074-3075
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=3478-3479
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=3658
:SAVEALL

Does this command code require TCP port bindings specs also?
As through my routers port forwardind GUI method I have no ability to select application/gaming forwarding for Psn.

I'm sorry to say, I have no idea what you're doing .

You, or the equipment you're using, are overcomplicating what is really a very simple process.

As far as actively playing an online game goes, from the LAN side, there should be nothing you have to do other than start the game up on your gaming console/PC and connect to a server.

If you have to enable something on your router to play, then your router is either too highend for the job and I would suggest you buy a SOHO router, or it's broken and you need to replace it.

If you're required to do more than just create a port forward to host a game, your router is too complex and I would suggest buying a good Linksys router and replace it.

Wow! That's really weird that you had to do that to get it to work. But the important thing is, you were able to get it to work. Way to go!

And thank you for coming back and posting the fix, you may just very well help someone else out because you did.

Happy gaming!
