I'm NAT very amused.

Living with your beloved sometimes has it's downsides. These downsides can be so mind numbingly infuriating that you may end up tearing all your hair out and going on a murderous rampage, slaughtering hundreds of innocent bystanders.

What could possibly be that annoying?

Yup, NAT issues! We have 2 xbox 360 consoles hooked up directly to our router, and only one of us can ever get an open NAT. The other console will always show up as moderate. This always leads to a headache when playing Halo 3 or Gears 2.

I checked first for a list of compatible routers in the UK and get this.

I called up Xbox customer service to try and get some resolution on this issue with utterly no success. I was told to port foward all the standard xbox live ports on both consoles to start with. When I explained we'd done that before and it made things worse I got put on hold for ages. My "helpful" advisor put me through to the technical team and I explained our current setup, for anyone interested.. here it is:

My 360 IP address is in the DMZ
Other 360 has all the relevant ports fowarded to it.
Upnp is disabled.
MTU is set to auto (1500)

The tech team rep put me on hold and then the line went dead.
Thanks Microsoft, i'll just go back to paying a gold subscription for some reason. :)
