First of all you need to be nice to it and listen to it's crap, then get it horribly drunk.
what was the point of your post when you're not here to help either of us?
First DMZ Your router, Will make Wii main priority over other internet activity.. Then you need to Port Forward your Router..
here are the numbers for MW3 Before I port forwared mine my NAT type was MOD. now is OPEN... I never drop while connecting to a match..
80, 443, 28910, 29900, 29901, 3074 it is for both UDP and TCB..
Here is a link to help if needed
Make sure your Wii is on so that it connects wirelessly to the router.
Log in to your router (usually 192.168.1.1 or something like that). Not sure about other brands, but Cisco put the DMZ under the Application and Gaming tab. Enter your Wii's MAC address (the best option). You can find this on the back of your Wii (I think), in your router via DHCP reservation in Cisco routers, or somewhere else in other brands of routers that shows current connections.
Instead of using the MAC address, you could also enter your Wii's IP address if you make it static under DHCP reservation (not the best option). You could also NOT put your Wii in the DMZ and simply forward the appropriate ports via the Port Forwarding tab (a better option).
Some routers - for whatever weird programming reason - need you to put your device (the Wii) in the DMZ and STILL use port forwarding. This isn't the norm, nor should it be, since the DMZ is supposed to open all ports to the particular MAC or IP address.
I got an open nat when connected wirelessly to my router. Finally. But if I connect with an ethernet cable it goes back to moderate. I'm going to look all this stuff up in the morning but I thought I would ask in case anyone may know and I'll have an answer when I wake up.
Even though it's connected via ethernet cable do I still need to go forward the ports for that connection? Or does it need to be in DMZ mode? I was under the impression that port forwarding was only for wireless, and I will find out tomorrow, but does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to get an open NAT with a wired connection?
