Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

PS4 user here but I imagine it's the same for the Xbox One.
Give your Xbox One a manual IP address for example mine is:
192.168.1.110

Then go into the Homehub 5 and put your Xbox One into the DMZ section.

It's given me an open nat on all games even the troublesome CoD games.

Just a bit more info to put in your Xbox One's network for a manual set up:

Wireless/Wired it doesn't matter...
Pick manual set up instead of automatic or easy.

On the manual network settings do the following:
IP Address - 192.168.1.110 (Static IP)
Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway - 192.168.1.254
Primary DNS - 192.168.1.254
Secondary DNS - Nothing needed here

The rest after that network settings page just do automatic.

And as posted earlier put your Xbox One into the DMZ again and all should be fine. Hopefully you'll have open NAT now. 🙂

I hope this helps!

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

Hey! Thanks for the advice. However it made it go from moderate to strict and also stopped me from signing in on my profile on Xbox live. Not sure what to do...

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

Hmmmm...you don't by any any chance have an xbox 360 or another console on the same network do you?

I know more than one console can cause these NAT issues.
I've personally found the home hubs 3 to 5 very easy to set up via DMZ/static IP for a continuous open NAT type even on the more troublesome games.

Let me know if you do or don't have multiple consoles set up. Then we could dwindle it down to something, I apologise it caused more issues than before you tried. 😛

Yeah I have a PS4 and a 360 all wired but only the PS4 is wired at the moment. 🙂

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

There is your answer as to why you cannot get an open NAT successfully.
I have never been able to figure out how to get an open NAT with multiple consoles on the same network. I couldn't figure it out but with one console my suggestion does work.

There is the first step to see what you can do:
How to get an open NAT with multiple consoles on the Home Hub 5.

I think the Xbox One and Xbox 360 use the same ports and thats causing the NAT issues.

Apologies I don't know much about that, hopefully its a bit more clearer. 🙂

Ah no problem! I will have a look into this, not sure why it puts the NAT as strict when the other consoles are not being used. Thank you for your help 🙂

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

Does anyone know if the new Smarthub can handle multiple xboxes at the same time, whilst allowing both to have open NAT?

Re: Open NAT on a BT Homehub 5

since the smart hub cannot port forward the same ports for multiple devices i would probably say No, and ofc they don't even explain how to set up a DMZ wasted my whole evening tonight trying to find out how to DMZ my PC and still am none the wiser....
