Where can I find NAT?

wompai
Ey guys,

I've been trying to connect an XBOX 360 to XBOX Live using a network bridge that has been setup on a spare computer. The bridge is working fine but when I test my network connection I get a message about my NAT settings being set to moderate, with these settings I cannot use some XBOX Live features. I have searched my FR!TZBox's user interface for these options, but I have not yet found them. Does anybody know where I can find them? Or a way to fix the problem another way.

Thanks in advance

NOTE: The network bridge is already up and running perfectly. The spare computer has the following hardware and software installed:
AMD Sempron 2600+ (1.6 GHz)
256 MB DDR RAM
GeForce 5200fx 128 mb
Maxtor 10GB
54 Mbps wireless controller
Ethernet controller (directly plugged into XBOX)
WinXP SP3

XBOX live needs the following ports:
88 - UDP
3074 - UDP
3074 - TCP
You may need to send (forward) these ports to your xbox from your router NAT configuration screen, look for "Port Forwarding".

I guess it wasn't the firewall then, but I can just play games on my XBOX without any problems. And, btw, the spare computer I'm talking about isn't used for anything else than enabling internet for the XBOX. It's dedicated to that particular task and doesn't do anything else. So I guess that turning the firewall off would not be so dangerous... (The firewall is only turned off in Windows not in the router)

WRONG! Wrong! Wrong! There are volumes of security exploits built around just the scenario you describe. You would be very vulnerable.
There are two firewalls on the Windows box that you need to adjust. One is the firewall on the wireless controller port and the other is the firewall on the ethernet port. On both firewalls, you want to open the following ports:
TCP 80
UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074
UDP 53
TCP 53
