Join room.....KDR is going up.....really getting into my grove......WTF, Connection Interuppted!!! OK, no biggie
Join another room.....doing good (but not like previouse room)......WTF, Connection Interrupted, AGAIN!!!! Starting to get upset!
Start again.....LAGGING SO BAD....Leave room
The lagging and Connection Interuppted is really annoying. Is there going to be a fix for this? Is there a fix for this?
As of now, Microsoft just puts the blame on my ISP. Why does my ISP have to assign me a "public" IP address to resolve the "NAT is set to Moderate" issue?
I think Microsoft knows that MANY ISP's will not assign a residential address with a "public" IP address so Microsoft can put the blame somewhere other than their servers.
I feel Microsoft or Activision has ripped me off by selling me a LEMON.
Having a Moderate NAT in-game is due to a port not being open,
The key port for BO3 in-game is 3075 UDP/TCP.
Are you able to configure your router ? Have you configured your router before ?
You should be able to assign your xbox 360 console a static IP (reservation) in your router, then you can port forward the necessary ports.
The above are general xbox 360 console ports, as well as the COD port number.
Your ISP should be able to guide you through the process of port forwarding.
An alternate option is to assign your 360 a static IP address in your router, and then place that IP address into the DMZ of the router.
Without knowing how your entire home network is set up, i cant provide a single solution. However, I hope the above information helps
If you need any more help, feel free to ask questions.
I did as you suggested with no luck. I'm still getting connection interupted and my NAT is still set to moderate.
Do you have more than one console on your home network ?
Check that your IP on your console, and tht one you have prot forwarded to are the same.
To clarify, if you have put your console into the DMZ, you don't want to use port forwarding as well ..... it's one or the other.
We should be able to nut this one out for you.
*remember, whenever you make console / router changes you need to then power cycle both so that they sync up.
The IP on my console and the one added to the port forwarding rules are the same. The DMZ is disabled. All Port Forwarding Rules are enabled. When I use the Open Port Check Tool, none of them are open.
When you say "You should be able to assign your Xbox 360 a static IP in your router", what do you mean? I have a static IP on my Xbox 360 configured through the Xbox 360. How would I do this in my router/modem? I have a Hitron CGNM-2250-SDL (CGNM3) router/modem.
Ok..I think I have why the port-forwarding is not working. I have to the Xbox 360's IP and Mac address to the DHCP Reservation. The problem is, in my router/modem, it says that the LAN DHCP Status is "Enabled" but, I can not click on the "DHCP Reservation" tab. Also, the static IP I choose does not fall within the DHCP range...lol. Technology sucks
At this point I would advise to give Hitron CS a call. Hopefully they can work it out for you.
I'm pleased to see that you are on the correct path though.
I have found out that Hitron is not a big fan of port forwarding...hahaha. The solution (for now) to MY port forwarding issue is , on the Hitron CGNM-2250-SDL (CGNM3) , to run the static IP for my Xbox 360 in DMZ.
Another solution I found is to buy a router, port forwarding capable and for use with my Xbox 360 only, put the Hitron CGNM-2250-SDL (CGNM3) in BRIDGE MODE and do the port forwarding through the router.
I'm thinking of just getting a new modem that IS port forwarding capable. The only issue is, I have Suddenlink as my ISP and they are very adimit about which modems are compatiable with their service. I have to do more research to find what the best solution for me is. Is there a good, inexpeinsive ($75) router you would recomend if I decide to go that direction? Out of the list below, which do you think would be my best bet?
Here is the list of compatiable modems for my ISP. They are all DOCSIS 3.0
Arris/Motorola SB6141, SB6183, SBG6400, SBG6580,
Arris/Motorola SBG6700-AC, SBG6782-AC, SBG6900-AC
