As title says. Has anyone managed to get the game to say you've got anything other than strict NAT?

I am 99% sure I am fully open, ports fowarded, firewalls off, UPnP enabled but it still claims I'm strict NAT.

Is their NAT detection wrong?

Try hooking it right up to your main modem. If it doesnt change, then yes.

Was working fine for several hours (one host migration success, one fail, otherwise no problems). NAT was Open for the duration.

Fast forward til now and my router randomly reboots itself, now it's strict. ISP is Be* if it matters.
Quiet, please. It's snack time.

Well, my ISP is Be as well and I've actually contacted them about this. They gave me some commands to enter using the telnet client in the command prompt, but they haven't made any difference.

It's claimed that I've had strict NAT all day, and I have spent absolutely ages trying to sort this out, which is why I'm convinced it's either something at Be's end causing this, or buggy NAT detection in the game... very annoying.

Just think, with dedicated servers, you wouldn't have to worry about opening ports!

True as that is it shouldn't really be an issue.

It's absolutely undeniable than the ports I've listed are open, and everything else is as I say it is. I don't mind having to do it, but I expect it to work when I do.

Does anyone have a link to anywhere that officially listed ALL the ports required by the game and steam? as errors in that list are about the last explanation other than blaming my ISP or the game itself.

You should use the helpful page put up by IW that just dumps you into tech support for your router!

Full list:

I have UPnP enabled and just opened UDP 28960 and I get Open status.

Thanks for the list but I've got them all open, I've checked they are actually open as well.

Something has to be wrong here but I'm pretty sure that I've done everything I should.

NO DMZ on my Speedtouch780 so that's not an option..
