resolve strict nat on thomson gateway for all systems

first post hope this helps

 

 

This article shows you how to increase compatibility between the Thomson router and some multiplayer internet games, specifically those on the XBOX PS3 and wii.

If you are confronted with the error on your game that your connection NAT type is strict, then this will allow you to set it to open.

You will need to connect to the router via telnet.

If you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista then you will need to install the telnet application first.

To enable telnet go to control panel → programs and features→ turn windows features on and off, then tick the box next to telnet client and click OK. Windows will now spend a few minutes enabling this feature.

Enabling Telnet in Windows Vista and Windows 7

Once telnet is enabled you need to connect to the router.

Press the Windows Key (to the right of the Ctrl key) and R together.

In the run box that appears delete all the text and type telnet 192.168.1.254 and click OK.

You will now be asked for a username, enter your router username, this is usually admin.

You will now be asked for a password, enter your router password, this is usually the serial number and must be entered in capital letters.

You are now logged into the command line interface of the router.

Copy and paste the following commands into the window.

:connection unbind application=CONE(UDP) port=69
:connection unbind application=CONE(UDP) port=3074
:connection unbind application=CONE(UDP) port=3478-3479
:connection unbind application=CONE(UDP) port=88

These commands may produce an error, please ignore this if they do.

Now please copy and paste the following commands into the window. These should not produce an error, please let us know in the comments if they do.

:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=55-66
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=68-499
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=501-5059
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=5061-7647
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=7649-27009
:connection bind application=CONE(UDP) port=27012-65353

Assuming there were no errors, please restart your XBOX/PS3/PC/wii, and you should have no further problems with strict NAT.
